ONE ribbon-wrapped random vintage book will be sent to you for $12 + Media Mail Shipping ($3.50)

Okay, it's not completely random. Pick a category from the drop-down menu in this listing. I will carefully select a pretty, old tome to send you. (There is a "Surprise!" option for those who embrace true randomness.)

Your book will be in GOOD+ to Very Good condition for its age. It may or may not have a dust-jacket. It could have previous owners' signatures in it.

I will include a card, telling you a bit about the book and its author.

I am defining vintage as 1960s or before, but many books will be older.

Note: Media Mail typically takes 7-10 days. Discounted shipping on multiple books.

If you need a book sent faster, let me know BEFORE you purchase and we can arrange a priority upgrade.

Ships from beautiful Portland, Oregon.
