I don’t often buy books without first viewing them, but I couldn't resist this collection.
I'm offered books on an almost daily basis. Many are not for me, but when they are I either pay a visit or ask the seller to post them. Once I'm happy with condition I send a cheque. If they are not up to scratch they are returned, with an appropriate amount to cover the seller's costs.
On this occasion, the collection comprised over 250 books, and the seller lived several hours away. I could hardly ask him to post them, but on the other hand, I didn't want to ask Terry to make the six-hour round trip, to collect them. So I found a courier who could collect and deliver – and hey presto here they are.
I’ve had several conversations with the seller, so I know what's in the collection, but I have no real idea of condition – so fingers crossed!
Essential supplies to hand, a nice blank page in my stock book, and here we go -
Thanks for calling in, I always enjoy your company. Please help yourself to a ginger biscuit!
