About the Bookseller

If you are an international buyer, books $50 or greater must be insured (I pay for insurance)but this will increase postage rate. International postage must use regular Priority mail to insure book. There is no longer a surface mail option for international postage. All books to Australia must ship Priority unless buyer is willing to accept responsibility for book from time of shipment. If you live in California we must charge State Sales Tax of 8.00%. We are an internet book dealer which requires that you call ahead to make sure we are present if you wish to pick up or view books.
