A sample of the writing: "Anybody mint as well be shet up in the asilum, as to be captured by a snow-blockade. All we could see was snow, and desolation, and 2 trains full of oneasy passengers, and snow-plows (as big as a summer kitchen, haulin' them big injines around by the nose), and about a hundred Chinamen, or else I seen the same one a hundred times. I don't see how their own mothers could ever tell 'em apart, for they all look as much like twins as a bushel of white beans, and every last one of 'em is named 'John.'" Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000578

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days via the United States Postal Service.

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
