For a few dollars you now have access to the magic secrets hidden in their pages. Actually, the real cost is half the paid price since most books, when you decide to part of them, can be sold at half the price you paid for them. And sometimes, when a book becomes out-of-print, it can be sold at a higher price.
Used magic books travel from magician to magician and give access to information at a lower cost. As an example, two-third of my libray are used books and their values represent only the third of all the money spent.
Out-of-print books are sometimes too expensive to be printed again. This is mostly true for old books, such as the ones produced fifty years ago or more. This is where the e-book becomes handy. It allows the reader to access information that otherwise would be too expensive to acquire, or even impossible to get.
A book also ages easily. Books written 400 years ago are still readable. And the ones produced today will still be readable 400 years from now!
To keep charges as low as possible, orders are shipped via the surface postal service (small orders in bubble envelopes, large orders in carton boxes).
New rates of the postal service forced us to modify our shipping charges. Low and heavy weight parcels now cost less to ship. Unfortunately, medium weight parcels took the hit. To better serve our customers, we took half the augmentation on our shoulders.
Money orders and personal checks are also accepted, in US or Canadian dollars. Please make payment to the order of Martin Joyal.
