Compass Rose Books is a retail internet sales and by-appointment shop in Berkeley California, started in 1996. We specialize in high-end Rare and Collectible Poetry, Modern Firsts, Belles-Lettres, some Genre Fiction (Mystery, Sci-Fi and Fantasy), Photography, and Angling. We have about 16,000 books online, and approximately 60,000 books in inventory. Customers are encouraged to contact us first by e.mail or phone to place orders, or make inquiries. For those in the San Francisco Bay Area, or who are visiting, wishing to view our stock, please call for an appointment time (any day between 11:00-6:00). We also issue occasional catalogues. We are always interested in considering for purchase or appraisal collections in estates or private hands, and will travel. Trade discounts considered on an individual basis. A word about pictures: Since we don't routinely post pictures to our listings, we get a number of specific requests for photos of the books we offer. We usually furnish photos upon request, but it is our experience that we seldom get sales, and almost never even receive acknowledgement of receipt of the images. If you request and are sent images, please acknowledge receipt. We regard a failure to do so as an offense against courtesy.
Cash with order. We accept Visa/Mastercharge, Personal Check, PayPal, Wire Transfer or Money Order with
phone or e.mail orders. Shipping is extra. U.S. Priority Mail, or rush Air Freight (billed at cost). Books are
guaranteed to be in condition described. Returned checks will result in $50.00 fee to customer. California
residents are charged appropriate sales tax. Customers are advised to place inquiries first via e.mail to:
