Maritime List 222



The magnificant and exhausting New York Book Fair is finally over. The Paris Book Fair is coming up this weekend, but I've got my priorities in order. I need to stay home and plant my early spring crops - beets and peas. Maybe some poppies, too.

Much to my surprise, some of the books I'd saved for the New York Book Fair did not sell. On top of that I bought a number of interesting items, so I came home from New York with about as much material as I'd taken down there.

This is a list of some of those items that survived the fair, and some that I discovered there. It's all fresh stock, and pretty interesting stuff, if I do say so myself.

Because my recent computer woes necessitated new book database software, items in this list are identified by a five digit "Book ID" number, rather than our traditional 1.2.3... catalog numbering system. If you're interested in ordering, reference to the Book ID number will facilitate that process.

And speaking of ordering, here's the fine print:

Books are in Good to Very Good antiquarian condition unless stated otherwise. Ink signatures and bookplates not noted unless they significantly mar the appearance of the book. Postage for all but special shipping orders is FREE anywhere in the US. All domestic shipments are insured at no cost to you.

We recommend ordering by email, since queries are processed in the order in which they are received, whereas phone messages may not be picked up immediately if we happen to be out of the office. Orders may be left any time. For a live answer try calling 978 283 5299 between 12 and 5 daily, Mon.-Sat.
We accept MC, Visa, PayPal, check, or money order. WE DO NOT RETAIN CREDIT CARD NUMBERS, so if your are paying by MC or Visa you’ll have to provide that information. (Our answering machine at 978 283 5299 is secure.) We will ship and bill prior customers and institutions. New customers and overseas orders are requested to pay with order in U.S. dollars or upon receipt of a pro forma invoice.
