Please carefully read my description and check out the photos BEFORE asking questions or bidding.


This is one of the rarest and most important works in American History,  The writings of George Washington; collected and ed. by Worthington Chauncey Ford.   This version is the Letterpress Edition limited to 750 copies of which this is #400 published by G. P. Putnam's Sons in the period 1889 to 1893.   I've researched this set and found one in a library where one can read them for research but NOT check them out, and some excerpts reproduced in softcover in recent years.  I also found a number of individual volumes reproduced by Kessinger Publishing in the past couple of years but I found NONE of the originals anywhere at any price.   The set was printed in 14 volumes: v. 1. 1748-1757.--v. 2. 1758-1775.--v. 3. 1775-1776.--v. 4. 1776.--v. 5. 1776-1777.--v. 6. 1777-1778.--v. 7. 1778-1779.--v. 8. 1779-1780.--v. 9. 1780-1782.--v. 10. 1782-1785.--v. 11. 1785-1790.--v. 12. 1790-1794.--v. 13. 1794-1798.--v. 14. 1798-1799. 
    This lot is comprised of volumes 2-14 but volume 14 is mistakenly labeled by the publisher on the spline as Volume 1.  All the leaves are gilt topped.   All appear to be complete and all are in good condition but some of the cover hinges have failed.   Serious inquirers are welcome to examine this set before purchase.

Shipping is OPTIONAL.  You may pick this item up or make any 3rd party arrangements you wish for transport. Winner or agent may pick up item in Keene, NH after payment has cleared. You will NEVER pay Tax, "handling" or other added fees when you pick up an auction item from me!


Shipping is Optional.  If you wish to pick up the item or have another pick it up for you, you may do so and avoid the cost of shipping.  Item is located in Keene, NH which about 90 minutes west of Boston, north of Hartford and east of Albany. 

If you wish to communicate with me AFTER the auction ends, please include your email address in your question because eBay message forwarding will NOT allow me to reply after the auction has closed.

If you get a "Second Chance" offer by email after the item sells, be SURE to visit your "MY EBAY" to confirm the legitimacy of the offer.  If it's not there, it's BOGUS and you should NOT respond.

Please read a sampling of my extraordinary feedback and then bid with confidence.


    Questions
are always welcome but please read the entire description before asking. The answer is probably in the description. If you wish to communicate with me AFTER the auction ends, please include your email address in your question because eBay messge forwarding will NOT allow me to reply after the auction has closed. Please use "
ask seller a question" link above for brief questions and feel free to call me at 603-357-5040 during the day with longer questions or those requiring complex answers.   As a licensed auctioneer, I sell a wide range of items but my expertise is in consumer electronics and antiques, so please bear with me if my description of items outside those areas are weaker.  
    .


I make every effort to treat others as I  wish to be treated.  Here are my rules and terms:
    I Guarantee items to match the description.  Items that differ substantially from the description may be returned at buyer's expense for refund of BID price ONLY.
     Items that substantially match the description but NOT the buyer's expectations MAY NOT be returned.  

      I make every effort to describe items accurately and completely and to be conservative in my claims.   Some items, like auto stereo components may NOT be returned once the package has been opened and items described as NEW and that qualify for manufacturer's warranty may NOT be returned but should be delivered to manufacturer or manufacturer's authorized warranty service facility for repair in the event of failure during the warranty period.  If you request it, I will furnish a retail bill of sale to support your warranty claim.

    I NEVER charge "handling charges" or any other bogus added fees or Sales Tax.  My "shipping" charges DO include cost of packing material and are averaged so a few buyers pay less than my actual cost, and a few somewhat more.  


                                                  Shipping
Charges
for lower 48 by my choice of delivery method are quoted at the Bottom of the page.  I assume buyer will be on the opposite coast when I estimate shipping and reserve the right to charge less if buyer is much closer.   Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii are usually higher so please ask for quotation before bidding.
 Pickup:
Item may be picked up at Interface, 660 Main Street, Keene, NH 03431 except in auctions of items so large or heavy that they are retained by the owner. In those cases, payment is made to me but pickup is from location of item. Location and instructions for getting there will be furnished to winner.  If you Pick the item up  NO shipping charges or sales tax will be due.

 Options
:  I prefer to ship lightweight items by mail and heavier items by UPS ground for lowest cost but will entertain requests to ship by other methods if buyer is willing to pay the additional cost.     UPS requires a street address and will NOT deliver to a PO box so buyers lacking a street address may have to pay additional cost for delivery by mail. (and insurance, if desired)
 International shipments are usually shipped by parcel post (lowest cost) and buyer has the option of air or surface transport. Very lightweight items are always mailed via Air Mail.  Postal rules limit weight and box size and vary by destination country, so some items MUST be shipped by commercial shipper.  In those cases I utilize UPS.   I'll be happy to quote shipping outside the lower 48 on request.  

   


                                                                       Packing
    I pack professionally using sturdy cartons, padded envelopes, and ample quantities of foam peanuts and/or bubble wrap to insure that items I ship arrive undamaged and so have VERY few items damaged in shipping.  I double box high value items to conceal the contents from prying eyes.  When practical, I re-use packing materials in an effort to minimize environmental impact and keep material cost down.
     Postal insurance is expensive so I don't insure low value items (under $100)  shipped by parcel post but UPS provides free insurance for the first hundred dollars value so I ALWAYS insure items shipped by UPS.
      I offer the option of insurance to international customers who request it and are willing to pay the additional cost.


                                                        Payment Options
I offer a wide range of payment options including:

  Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover charge cards and PAYPAL (Both bank and card funded), EFT.  EFT payment must be received at least 3 days prior to picking up item. If you have any questions about these terms, please call or email me.
    Customers in the United States and Canadian  wishing to  pay with a charge card, may call me with card information subject to the condition that the shipping address furnished MUST match the billing address for the card.  
I will NOT ship to an address differing from the billing address.
    International customers (except Canadians) must pay with either EFT or by PayPal.  Of course, I accept US cash for items picked up but NOT for items shipped, in accordance with eBay rules.
    I do NOT accept COD orders.
    Items paid for with secured funds will normally be shipped on the 1st business day following receipt of funds. Items paid for by EFT will ship 3 days after receipt of funds by my bank.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
