Point of interest: J. L. Whitaker (d. 1895) seems be associated with the bookseller/publisher or relative of, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Whitaker_(publisher). Rev. James A.

Returns & exchanges

I do not accept returns. Great care is taken to assure that everyone is completely happy. Before shipping I personal review the item(s) to be absolute sure that an important detail wasn't overlooked.
The books in this private library vary in age and are not brand new. Many are decades old or printed in the 19th century. Most have been passed down for generations, having 2 or 3 owners only. Most of this collection has been together for a century and in one location. The collection is respected and well cared, but expect time stains, mild foxing, tanning from age. Corner rubbings, bumps, and wear from use can be naturally expected as well. The books stood upright for decades and therefore a darkening at the top of the pages has occurred. Years of defused sunlight has played a role in fading the spine of the books. Though rare, humidity can leave a mark. Listings are detailed about the condition of each book and uses "Excellent," "Good," and "Fair" to denote quality. Shelf-wear, such as slight leans in binding or strength are given attention. Internal and external marks, textural notes, highlight symbols, tears, and damages are clearly stated. Identification history of signatures, labels, seals, stickers or stamps are noted, including book seller marks.
