Prompt shipment. Wrapped safely.
A collector who loves to share
Many years ago I started collecting antiquarian books. Like most hobbyists I soon amassed them until every room in my house had at least a few old books. I tend take Horace Mann's word seriously when he said, "A house without books is like a room without windows." All the books offered here have been hand selected for interestingness and condition. Most of them have been in my own collection for years and I enjoy passing them along to fellow bibliophiles.
In the rust belt, we are fortunate there is a wide selection of old books, typewriters and other well used relics of America's past. I have always been a fan of typewriters and feel they go together with my books like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, assuming you are not allergic to peanuts.
The typewriters I find are cleaned up without using harsh chemicals, therefore they are not "refurbished" machines. I do my best to get them working again but sometimes a key might stick a little or there may be a few paint chips. I find this to be a welcome quirk of the machine and a testament to surviving into the 21st century. At the moment I enjoy collecting Remington 2 portables and other pre-war portables.
I find old stuff interesting. I think you do too.
