About this Item

One of only 150 copies comprising the second edition (printing) of the Shelley Society reprint, and it is both considerably different and numerically scarcer than the first Shelley Society reprint. This printing/edition includes a new editor's preface, comprising about 30 pages of preliminary text, which has much of bibliographic interest re the publication of Alastor and addresses some of the issues associated with the Shelley Society's original reprint edition in terms of the text used. The present volume contains some modifications briefly outlined in the preface. This copy is bound in the original printed boards, which are worn at spine ends and along edges, including edges of the spine. There is some chipping at the top and bottom of the spine and typical age/dirt soiling to boards. Internally book is very good, tight, clean, with light foxing to endpapers. Paper aging as expected.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
