About this Item

Ownership name in felt pen on title page. No other markings. Top corners very slightly bumped, else a near fine, tight copy in a vg+ dust jacket with slight edge tears and no chips. However former owner has written a notation in ink on the front flap. Also, between the verso of title page (copyright page) and the Foreward (page 5) there is a narrow paper stub in the gutter. Sometimes this is an indication that a page was removed. However, if the pagination commences with the first page of text, namely the half-title page, then there is no break in pagination. Having not previously handled this book, I cannot say for sure that there is or isn't a preliminary page missing. I would say it seems it is not likely and that the stub simply is a part of this particular books construction, particularly since if any page were missing it would most likely be the table of contents, but in this book, the table of contents appears at the rear of the book in lieu of an index. The table of contents begins with page 5, the foreword, which is present. as are all subsequent pages. This is an oversize volume generously illustrated with reproductions and drawings, some in color. 127 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 008162

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.
