Terms of Sale


In general, items are returnable within 10 days of receipt by the buyer.  Normally, we refund cost of the item and the post cost paid by the buyer to ship the order. We do NOT, normally, refund return post costs paid by the buyer. Clear exceptions are if we  sent the wrong item or there is a gross error in description of the item.   On rare occaisions we  describe items as "sold waf"  meaning  "with all faults"-  these items generally have major flaws that are mentioned, but they may have lesser flaws as well - they may be useful for study or for use of illustrations for another purpose.   In general these items are in poor condition and priced accordingly compared to better copies.  


Payments by Check in US dollars and drawn on a US bank are welcome.  In general we ship after checks clear.  

Payments by Credit Card and PayPal are also welcome.

Institutions can purchase by above methods, but we can also send an invoice.

International Orders

Buyers outside the USA should realize that shipping costs have risen dramatically over the years and those costs are not always easy to estimate without size and weight of the items being determined individually.  Sometimes when the shipping cost is calculated the total cost becomes too expensive.  The buyer has the right to cancel the order in such cases.  

Shipping to some parts of the world is not reliable and we may refuse to ship items to such areas.
