For Sale Oxford Latin Dictionary

Postby AndrewRogers » Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:22 pm

Unfortunately I come her to end my Latin experience. I tried picking up Latin at university, but I just couldn't keep at it.

I splurged a bit on books, as I so often do. I have the following for sale. It is in as new condition with a mylar cover and absolutely no dog ears. In fact, it has really not been used, as the only dictionary I ever used was a smaller dictionary during classes.

Details

Oxford Latin Dictionary
Edited by PGW Glare

ISBN 0-19-864224-5

Printed 2004 in Great Britain by CPI Bath

$345 US new

My price $80 US
Insured airmail worldwide $20 US (This is quite a heavy dictionary!)

I'm sure others would have a much greater use for it though so I'll let them fight over it :lol:

Well, I am not sending payment to someone I do not know, so it is all yours.

Payment would be via Paypal and I can happily provide tracked express international post at a bit extra ($10 US). I know trust might be a bit of an issue on here, but simply Google AndrewRogers and you will probably come across a few threads at StyleForum where I sell quite a few things. If you send me a PM, I'd be more than happy to give you my personal e-mail address.

Thanks,

Andrew

Well on top of trust being an issue... the fact that you're selling it for less then half of what you could get for it on e-bay might have an effect as well...

How about this. Send the book to the school where I teach. (e-mail me in the forum). I can even give you a purchase order. Then, upon receiving the book, I will reimburse you.

You can check all of my posts to Textkit. I am a stand-up guy.

So wait. You have paypal but do not want to use Half.com or ebay? Where do you live friend? Maybe I can walk over and do the transaction in person?

PS. at the price you are charging, you could sell on Craigslist. Surely, there is someone near you who studies Latin? Where are you again?

I don't know whether this will make things easier or better, but I have put the dictionary up for sale on eBay.

The price included shipping worldwide, though it seems eBay didn't let me include international shipping. I can't use Half.com as I am located in Australia.

The price has gone up a bit to cover two things: eBay fees and postage (insured and tracked express international)

This might provide the safety and protection some of you are after.
