About Us

We have been online booksellers since  2001 and are immensely grateful that the internet allows us to engage in this wonderful trade here in the peaceful countryside of beautiful Vancouver Island on Canada's west coast.  Over the years it has been our privilege to provide rare non-fiction books and vintage magazines to many thousands of loyal customers the world over. 


We take pride in providing a high level of communication.  This begins with an accurate written description and photo of your item.  We appreciate that purchasing online requires considerable trust on your part.  Our descriptions and photos communicate a high level of information about our offerings, enabling you to make a more comfortable  purchase decision.


Upon receipt of your order we will promptly process it and email your tracking number to you.  All items purchased from us are fully insured while in transit to you.  To this end, we pack very securely in sturdy new cartons, often double-boxing to insure the safety of your shipment. 


As proud members of IOBA, the Independent Online Booksellers Association, we abide by its code of ethics and offer toll-free support at 1-877-660-6118.   We encourage you to contact us with any questions prior to, during, or after your purchase.
