ElevenEleven Books is our passion and, dare we say, obsession. We feel the thrill of the hunt is as rewarding as the treasures we find. We specialize in ephemera, antique books, and other paper or related antiques from all over the world; found online & locally from a multitude of sources.
We primarily deal in antique books, with an emphasis on bringing the story and journey of the book alive, as well as the actual piece of literature. Our books and ephemera are researched, examined and tracked through inscriptions and other indicators, as to not only display the piece as it is, rather we bring to life the former owners (if applicable), how they lived, and what value the book/paper might have been to them. We sometimes are able to even re-connect the books with their former family lines, which in our eyes is amazing and very rewarding, per say 'continuing the journey.' Often these genealogies and records are found in antique Holy Bibles, which we have thousands of, as well as many, many other subjects. You will find in our store Americana, Militaria, History, Decorative, Religious, Occult, and a whole wide array of kinds of books, basically, anything that might be of interest to you, the buyer, as much as it is to us, the sellers. We even include some select antique items which just may touch the palate of our history hunters! HAPPY HUNTING!
We pride ourselves in prompt shipping and worldwide availability. We are always sure to post in the quickest manner after payment has cleared through Paypal.
Please note that we use Media Mail to ship unless you, the buyer, indicate to us another method before we invoice you the total. We will gladly apply free insurance to any purchase over 150$ for free, as well as tracking to any purchase regardless of price. Media Mail is very slow at times, so keep this in mind when bidding, and PLEASE blame the Postal Service, not us.
We are very excited to make our items available to the worldwide markets, and will ship internationally with accurate rates and economical methods. There is, however, a higher risk when buying items internationally for loss within the postal services of the world. We gladly apply tracking for the item when sent, as to display the item each step of the shipment, and to display our prompt posting of the item shortly after it is paid. PLEASE NOTE that at times items do get lost when shipping! This is not our fault, and in the rare case that this does occur, and the tracking info displayed states that the item was shipped promptly on our end, we urge the bidder to understand that we are not responsible for repayment. We will gladly add insurance to the item if noted and compensated by the buyer, or if the nation of purchase allows for it, which would cover this risk and help soften the blow if this does occur, but again, please note this risk when bidding and understand that we do not take upon ourselves repayment if this happens outside of our control.
All returns must be submitted and shipped in the same care and protection that the item was sent to you in, and must not be altered, missing pieces, or damaged in any way ther than its original state given in the listing. Any violations of these terms voids return. Also, all items subject to 20% restocking fee. Buyer is also responsible for return shipping, and is responsible for reading the listing carefully and noting any, if applicable, faults mentioned. Failure to do so will result in voided return policy.
