Clearing out some bookshelf space.
Please post "I'll take...." down below. I'll try to get things boxed and shipped quickly but it may take a few days. I'll try to check the thread daily, but I might miss it so please send me a PM or email after your "I'll take it." This is cross-posted on other forums as well. I'll try to honor time stamp for the first firm commitment to buy, but ultimately will arbitrate how I see best fit if there's a conflict of who has first claim.

I may consider trades for Aviation and military books. I like Squadron/Signal, Osprey, engaging memoirs - technical and personal stuff from the medieval ages to the cold war. Also into anything FAL related, 20th C. African wars, Russian/Eastern European history, Colonial America, Napoleonic, Flintlocks!

Small Books: Shipping $2+ $.50 for each additional
Medium Books: Shipping $2.50 + $1 for each additional
Large Books: Shipping $4 + $1.50 for each additional
To combine shipping, start with the largest size and add the amount for additional books depending on size. For example 1 large + 2 small books = $5 shipping.
Shipping will be media rate unless you want to work out something else.
Paypal is preferred (f&f/gift or else you cover the fee) but I'll take checks and MOs as well. Just let me know.
