I am always in the market for books and pamphlets on my subjects, which are:
ORDERS, MEDALS AND MEDAL-RIBBONS
SIGNS AND SYMBOLS
I buy books and pamphlets in ANY LANGUAGE AND ANY CONDITION!
I have materials in my library in 50 languages and would like to have more.
I do not buy prints, scrolls, cloth flags, or objects – only books and pamphlets (and heraldic postcards).
To offer me books or pamphlets, please send as full a description as you can, including if possible title, author, date and place of publication, number of pages, approximate number of illustrations in black and white and in color, whatever other information you think might be useful, price requested and estimated shipping cost to California. Of course all this information will not be available for every item, especially those in difficult languages, but do the best you can – a photocopy or a scan of key pages can be a useful substitute.
I prefer to correspond by e-mail, but will not insist on it if there is a need to communicate in some other way. If necessary I can read communications in French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Spanish as well as English. I prefer to pay by credit card or by Paypal, but can make other arrangements if necessary.
As soon as it is completed I will post a catalogue of my collection on this website, which will help avoid offering me items I already have.
