Picture Books

Click on the button below to launch our order form in a new tab (if you already have a form open feel free to copy and paste books from multiple book categories  onto one form)



For the most part our books are reading copies—wear and tear, but still enjoyable, usable books. I will use the following scale to evaluate their condition, noting any major blemishes in the description of the individual books:

Excellent—Like New, not EX-Library, like you would find at a new bookstore

Very Good—Maybe ex-library, maybe not (if not will say "NOT ex-lib"), very good shape, maybe a few page creases, or pencil marks, etc, still a very good book with tight binding and clean pages

Good—Some wear to cover and pages to be expected, may have had some hinge repair, but book is still solid, a very decent copy

Fair—Expect more wear and tear, tape reinforcement to spine or inside covers, tape to page tears, smudges on pages are usually present

Poor—Really sad book that has seen better days, still contains the wonderful ideas of the book, but is lacking on the physical appearance!

Condition Note: All are HARDBACK and Ex-Library with usual stamps and pockets, etc. unless otherwise noted. OOP means this book is Out of Print. Unless we have inadvertently misrepresented a book's condition, all sales are final.  Thanks for looking!
