Every four to six weeks we publish illustrated lists of maritime books, documents, manuscripts and ephemera here on our website. If you wish to be informed when these lists are posted, sign up for our mailing list by going to the “Keep Informed” section at the bottom of the page, and filling in your name and email address. When a new list is posted, you will receive an email from us. Please bear in mind that many of the items in our lists sell within a few days, so it’s important to read and respond quickly!
Our Most Recent Catalog
I’ve had a few buying opportunities lately, and as a result I’ve come up with some pretty good stuff. This catalog features the ultra-limited edition of Flayderman’s book on scrimshaw (with the ivory whale and the five erotic scrimshaw photos), Robinson’s strikingly printed and bound Cetacea. The Great Whales, a China Trade journal, a unique broadside auctioning a captured Rebel blockade runner, three delightful color lithographs depicting the dangers of the whale hunt, an unusual set of Cooper’s Lives of Naval Officers, and several rare whaling narratives. Now that I step back and look at it, I suppose this list is a bit cetaceocentric – a result, no doubt, of my concerted efforts to Save The Whales.
If you wish to order, it is best to do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by using the “Contact” tab on our website (these messages go directly to my email “IN” box). This allows requests to be processed in the order in which they are received. If you need more information about any of these books, I will try to provide it by email or telephone. If by phone, try calling 978 283 5299 between 12 and 5.
We accept MC, Visa, PayPal, cash, and checks. Our bank charges us $25 to receive wire transfers, so a $25 charge will be added to payment by electronic transfer. For security reasons WE DO NOT RETAIN CREDIT CARD NUMBERS. So you’ll have to supply those with each order.
As always with our rare book lists, we pay postage and insurance for orders mailed within the US. Oversized and overseas parcels will be billed at cost.
