Library Liquidation!

Postby David Oliver » August 29th, 2017, 10:22 pm

Hello, all.

All books sold in "As Is" condition, and are accurately described in listings. Some are collectible, others are OOP, a few are new, many are still available elsewhere at higher prices. From a smoke-free home, kept on book shelves. Selling only in CONUS. All prices and sales are final, and include basic shipping in CONUS. Express mail, or other additional shipping must be paid for by purchaser in advance. Nothing held, first to pay gets item. Selling books to make room, and to pay some unexpected medical bills. Your help/purchase is greatly appreciated!
