Condition is unused but if you hold it on an angle you can see the impression of writing where someone must have held it under another paper as they wrote something (no actual writing on the cover, just a light impression), one page (51) has a small tear at the top. No writing inside or out, no spine seperation or tears, minor corner bumps. Overall excellent unused condition.

Shipping costs may be reduced by combining items or selecting another shipping method.
The default option is media mail 2-8 days.
If you prefer I can ship first class, or any other method you select at checkout. Insurance can be provided at you expense if you desire. Shipping costs of 3 dollars per item are added to your purchase price. If you purchase multiple items I will waive 1 shipping fee for every three items purchased. I regret that I recently had to raise my shipping fee, due to moving much farther from the local post office, but I still try to get it into the post office the next day.

Shipping fees are a pain, but it requires a good deal more time than you might expect, not to mention envelopes, sleeves, taping and cutting cardboard to keep your purchase safe through transport. I recycle cardboard so I have to cut it by hand which is laborious but I like the stiffness of cardboard boxes as opposed to the flimsy stuff you might usually see.


You may also pay by personal check (will hold merchandise until check has cleared my account, approx 1 wk after receipt) or money order (ships in 1-3 days).
Any taxes will be added to your purchase price. I must receive payment within 2 weeks or the transaction may be cancelled.
