Every Catalog on the website has its own discount for the holidays.  The discounts  vary depending on the catalog.  Pick items from any of the catalogs and subtract the percent discount of items selected from each respective catalog.

Many of these discounts will disappear after the first of next year.  Additional catalogs will disappear from the website at that time also. 

 

If you are not receiving periodic emails from me and you would like to have an email concerning sales, etc., please let me know.  When I send emails they are always blind so your address will not show and no one will see or copy it.  And I won't sell it.  I am a Vietnam Veteran who just wants to find good homes for books, minerals, and fossils.

The following items were offered  several months ago to my regular customers.  Only these few remain.   They are original USGS Professional Papers with slight damage which in most cases has been repaired, if possible. If you would like a copy of these classic paper Professional Papers, now is your chance to get them at a very reduced cost. Most of these are single copies only, but I have several copies for a few of them.  I will delete these as they sell. This is a one-time offer.  Some of them have a jpeg for a pocket plate. I will convert it into a pdf file if you prefer at no charge.
