Academic reference library of primary and secondary sources being put online: 50+ years in the making, with specialization in philosophy and religion--all areas; ancient thinkers to contemporary; auto-biographies and biographies; some series publications of noted publishers; some foreign language and signed. Plus general stock: mathematics, fiction, mysteries, literary criticism, economics, politics, social sciences, hard sciences, art, education, children's, etc., including some signed and in foreign languages. Largely, books for the contemplative, skeptical, rational argument-driven person who enjoys reading, studying, and creating challenging intellectual discourse and who doesn't lack an affinity for brilliant humor and eager participation in current debates on multifarious topics--or who just plain wishes to indulge an insatiable desire, perhaps not unprecedented, for a complete library on several scholarly fronts, but with a few escapist or collectible items thrown in to make it all worthwhile or to put tenure within easy reach.
We abide by the current policies set by Abebooks. Please submit all orders through Abebooks.com
All domestic orders will be sent by USPS Media Mail, unless some other mode of shipping is requested or required and accepted in advance of shipping. International orders will be sent by USPS International Flat-Rate Priority envelope or box, unless the current weight and size restrictions cannot be met or insurance is requested or required (e.g., the book is worth $40.00 or more). All books sent by USPS Flat-Rate unpadded envelope (or padded envelope, moreover) will be wrapped in paper and packed between cardboard sheets larger than the book or with cardboard affixed at the corners, in order to prevent damage to the book during shipment. Books sent in boxes will also be wrapped in paper and suitably packed to avoid movement in box. The goal here is to ship essentially at cost, rather than to reap additional profit beyond the cost of shipping, thus keeping the customer's cost for shipping as low as possible.
