View Diary: Don't Buy Books From Crooks (48 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  I have bought some rare books on EBay (3+ / 0-)

    that have turned out to be library copies lacking any de-accession markings.  If it's a rare or valuable book I will conduct a search of the university's on-line catalog and see what the book's status is.  If it says it's missing, lost, or no longer in the catalog, I contact the library and ask if they want it back.  If they do, I'll send them the book and ask them for a receipt so I can use it as a tax deduction.

    I also contact the Ebay seller and give 'em hell.
