"I have spent many delightful hours poring over the . . . lists of second-hand booksellers. . . . All these are redolent of romance. They are much more entertaining than half the novels that are written." -W. Somerset Maugham. Auldfarran Books has been in business as an antiquarian and secondhand bookseller since 1993 and is a member of the International Association of Online Booksellers. E-mail is the surest way to get in touch with us. Our listed first editions are the first printings unless otherwise noted (and if so noted, they would not be first editions). A signed book is just that, while an inscribed book is dedicated to a particular person. We accept all the usual credit cards as well as checks & money orders in U.S. funds. American libraries may submit purchase orders. Full postage & packing charges are added to such invoiced orders. Georgia residents please add 8 percent sales tax. We make every effort to delete books promptly from the data base, but books are subject to prior sale. Books purchased one at a time are net to all. We try to quote conservatively using the late AB Bookman's Weekly guidelines for the antiquarian book trade, in effect from 1948. For example, Fine (F) is almost as good as new without being crisp, Very Good (VG) can show some small signs of wear, Good (G) is the average used or slightly worn book with all pages present. "Fine" is our highest grading. At the lowest end of the scale is a "reading copy, which is textually complete only. A "binding copy" is in need of professional rebinding or other extensive repair. Various descriptions such as near Fine (nrF), near Very Good (nrVG) and Good plus (G+) are efforts to tweak a subjective process of description. "About Good" is less than "Good," marginally above "fair. We try to note all serious flaws, but please remember that too detailed descriptions can often make a book seem less desirable than it is in reality. For overseas customers, please note that shipping rates have skyrocketed, but if you are interested in a particular book, send us an email and we will direct you to a shipping consolidator who may be able to ship more cheaply.
