Reference Book Sale

January, 2017 - 

 

I am currently streamlining my reference library as I transition back into life in Toronto. All prices are in USD, 4% Paypal fees and shipping are extra. All books ship from Canada.

I am listing this under the assumption that viewers are familiar with the titles, and have not taken photos of the books since the list is large. Condition of all books is gently used or better, I have noted where the condition is less than this. For a photo of any book you are interested in please send me a message via the "Contact" page. 

Reasonable offers will be considered on purchases of multiple items - again, please send me a message via the "Contact" page with any inquiries.
