|Seller notes:||“In excellent unmarked condition albeit with a very tiny rub to the top rear corner of the spine (barely perceptible). The gilt lettering on the spine is a little faded but this is very slight and again mentioned in the interests of complete accuracy rather than as a negative. There are no tears, chips, creases, bumps, writing, inscriptions etc. and the clean, bright, unmarked leatherette boards have straight edges and sharp corners. The gilt decoration is excellent and with the exception of the previously mentioned lettering, very bright. Internally unmarked throughout this is very collectable copy in near fine condition.”|

RETURNED GOODS: Buyer must contact me prior to returning goods. Undiscussed returns will not be accepted and no refund will be made. Please return in or include original packaging as far as possible. The return costs are payable by the buyer. The 7 day return rule applies from when the return is agreed.
FEEDBACK: Thank you for viewing my item and good luck if you decide to bid; if not maybe another time. Please note that I will always leave good, positive feedback for a smooth, friendly transaction. When buying, I try to pay as quickly as possible, usually by Paypal if acceptable, and leave immediate feedback on satisfactory receipt of the item I have purchased. When selling, I only leave feedback after it has been left for me by the buyer. The reason for this is that unfortunately a minority of buyers feel it is unnecessary to leave any feedback at all once they have got the item(s) and received a positive feedback for their payment.
NOTES FOR OVERSEAS BUYERS
Payment by Paypal only from overseas. Thank You.
POSTAGE ABROAD: The postage amount quoted is for UK Delivery only. Overseas deliveries will be made by Airmail (*See Below). Overseas buyers must enquire for delivery costs BEFORE BIDDING. The delivery cost of the three services I offer will be quoted.
* There are several types of airmail delivery service I offer the three following services:
1. BASIC AIRMAIL SHIPPING. This will not include tracking and in the case of packages being lost in transit I will not make any refund. I will however make enquiries with Royal Mail as to the whereabouts of the package(s) and obtain a proof of postage which I can send to the buyer. In the case of items being damaged in transit I will refund the item and delivery costs for the goods but only when the buyer returns the damaged item plus original packaging to me at his expense. This shipment method is not recommended for items over GBP £10.00
2. AIRMAIL SIGNED FOR SERVICE. This includes tracking within the UK only and signature on delivery. It is recommended for all items with a value over GBP £10.00. The cost of the SIGNED FOR service is the basic airmail cost plus GBP £5.30 for delivery to EEC countries and the same to destinations outside the EEC. Please note that not all countries are covered by this service. I will refund buyers for lost items if they request the SIGNED FOR service. If the item is damaged in transit I will refund the costs in accordance with the notes in 1. above.
3. AIRSURE AIRMAIL SERVICE. This includes track and trace from door to door and delivery confirmation. The cost of the AIRSURE service is a little higher than the SIGNED FOR service (price on request) and is recommended for items with a value over GBP £20.00. Please note that not all countries are covered by the AIRSURE option. I will refund buyers for both lost and damaged items if they request the AIRSURE service.
