Shipping will $3.50 for the first volume purchased by an individual buyer and $1.50 for each subsequent volume in that purchase. Unless alternate arrangements are made the books will be shipped USPS Media Mail and only to the US.

I accept cheques, money orders, cash but not PayPal (as I have no desire to pay the exorbitant fees that they deem appropriate). Books will be shipped within 4 business days of payment clearing. PM me for other payment methods. The preferred method is cheques as I had a MO go missing in the mail and that is unpleasant for all parties, though the buyer was a true gentleman.

Please post a reply on this thread and PM me if you would like any of these works.

ume written by Ellis in 1921 and reprinted in this 1992 FMFRP has a biography of Ellis; and his work which foretold the war with Japan and attempted to describe where the conflict would be carried out. "The volume is priceless as it shows clearly Maj Ellis' thoughts and his extraordinary accuracy, especially in light of the 20 year gap between his writing and the actual outbreak of hostilities." Interestingly there is a disclaimer regarding the racist tone of the work. -$15
