I have been selling used and rare book for over 40 years, first by mail order and then here on ABE for the past 12 years. I specialize in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, and trade catalogs and service manuals. To a lesser extent, I also include the natural sciences of geology, paleontology, and botany, some history and an extensive collection of USDA soil survey manuals, vintage USGS topographic maps, early atlas maps, and fine lithographs. Book condition is paramount in establishing a market value and I try to be meticulous in describing any and all defects. Please view the photos provided or ask for more if you are unsure of the book condition. Returns accepted if not completely satisfied as sometimes a defect has gone unnoticed by me. I am always willing to trade for vintage and new wicker catalogs and signed First Editions by Margaret Atwood.
