AbeBooks' uniqueness is our network of independent booksellers who work with us to provide the most diverse selection of rare, used and out-of-print books on the Internet. It is these sellers, with their experience, commitment and love of the used and out-of-print book business who help all our buyers find that treasure they've been looking for.
All books are sold "as is." I try to describe books thoroughly and provide descriptive photos of the actual books for sale, but buyers are encouraged to ask questions before purchasing. Antique books will almost invariably have some flaws commensurate with their age. If you happen to be in the central New Jersey area and would like to personally inspect books before purchase contact me to arrange an appointment.
Books are wrapped in paper or plastic, then tightly bound with packing tape. I believe the tight binding helps protect fragile spines during shipment. Please use scissors CAREFULLY to remove the tape when you receive the book. Most books are then wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed for shipment with plenty of packing material to prevent the book from moving inside the package during transit. Insurance is included for all books over $100.
