BACKGROUND: ….
The author William Greener was a gunsmith and inventor, best known for designing a self-expanding bullet that could be rammed into the muzzle but expand to engage the rifling upon firing. His work reviews the history of firearms with details on new inventions, including Colt's repeating pistol
NOTE ……fyi … to international buyers …. U.S. buyers for example ……… there should be NO customs duty on printed matter such as this ‘second hand book’
that’s what my research showed …. Anyway, maybe you can double check
if you know for sure, please lemme know, thx…. I’d appreciate it) ... ….

FULL insurance extra, contact me if you want it ………………..… OTHER COUNTRIES – Please contact me for an exact price …… but I can say fully insured with tracking... will cost ROUGHLY $90 …. no other options ….…BUT again, contact me for your EXACT cost ……………...……. IF SHIPPING IS CHEAPER than I stated, I will refund the difference back to the buyer………. …..
OF COURSE, I WILL COMBINE shipping to save your money...… ……..
Please know -- a camera lens and flash highlight and even exaggerate faults and damage to an item................ ................ Hence, in reality the item always looks better than in a photo.........
REGARDING FEEDBACK:
I always leave Positive feedback soon after the sale ……… A positive response from you later on would be nice…… that’s your choice. I do want to say that IF something goes wrong, if I have made a mistake of some kind, we both should agree, as buyer and seller, to solve the problem like civilized people. Negative feedback should not be used as a ‘first response’ to a mistake…….... I mean, after all, I am only human…
ALSO – The Ebay Feedback system is not ACCURATE … For a better reflection of my selling reputation……. go to one of my listings……
then, in the top right area, under ‘Seller Information’, you will see
See other items’. Click on that. You will see any items I am selling.
Now, go to the left margin, scroll down, then click on 'SOLD LISTINGS'.........… You will now see all the things I’ve sold recently, all without a complaint.
eBay’s FEEDBACK in not accurate because most Buyers don’t leave Feedback. Why? I don’t know. But it’s a fact. Look in Ebay ‘Community’; many other Sellers say the same thing.
PERSONALLY – ………………. .........I've been an eBay seller for a long time. And I'm a good one. I have a large degree of integrity and do my utmost to ensure a fair and happy transaction. I've also bought a lot things on eBay so I know the value of a problem-free purchase. So, please, trust me; I'm doing my best for both of us. Nobody wants hassles. .. ..
REFUNDS: .. If it is an obvious mistake on my part, full or partial refunds are given. Shipping refunds are dependent on the mistake. In certain refund situations I need the item shipped back to me – which has never happened but just in case. If it is clearly my mistake, return shipping could be reimbursed. But again, in all my years I've never had to resort to this.
