All the books
in the bookstore are for sale. Condition
is listed on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being poor and 10 being like
new. Orders are filled on a first come first serve basis based on
when I receive your e-mail request with the book number you want. FIRST E-MAIL GET'S IT!!
(The book number is at the end of each listing.) I have to be completely consistent with this rule to insure fairness to
all. HOWEVER, an e-mail with a book
number MUST be considered binding in order for this to work. You
e-mail me a book number, you have given your word. I'm sure you
would expect the same from other buyers, and I know this won't be a
problem. When I
receive an e-mail, I mark the book "Sold"
on the site which resides on my laptop, and the next time I publish the
site, the information is updated on the internet. There may be
some lag-time between the update on my hard-drive and the update on the
internet. Although unlikely, a book may not be available that is
not marked sold.
Payment is expected within 10 days. When payment is received
and the transaction is complete, the listing is removed
from the site.
If a book is not available, I'm probably
trying to locate a copy. TONS of online bookstores
are searched weekly for CLPEX. If you know of a fingerprint-related book which is not
even listed on my site, drop me
an e-mail and I will add it. If you want a title that is shown as
"not available," send me a note and I will try to locate a
copy for you. If you have books you are interested in
selling, drop me a note; we'll see what we can do.
This is a
passion of mine, not a business. These prices represent what it
would take for me to obtain and have shipped a book of like condition
and like edition to replenish my collection, if it is even available. As you will see, I pride
myself on QUALITY books, not cheap books. Many of these books are not
currently available in the excellent condition I have obtained.
There is a TON of junk on the internet to weed through, but the cream of
the crop lands at CLPEX.com. Prices are in a constant state
of flux, and represent current supply and demand of each particular
title and it's condition. I reserve the right to update pricing
according to these factors at any time necessary, prior to sale.
GUARANTEED!! I have weeded through the garbage to bring you only
the finest, or the hardest to find. There should be absolutely no
problem with my description versus what you receive. If for some
reason you are not happy with your purchase; send it back! I'll
refund everything, including your shipping. As I said, this is a
passion, not a sales pitch. I just enjoy finding loving homes for these
All prices include shipping. Discounts
may be available for additional purchases in the same order... e-mail me
on an order-by-order basis for these discounts. I don't have
e-commerce capabilities with secure servers and merchant accounts.
Payments may be made with good ole' fashion cash or check through the
mail. Send to: Kasey Wertheim, 242 W. Philadelphia Ave,
Bridgeport, WV 26330. I provide a detailed receipt with
My main goal is to
get fingerprint books FROM bookstores TO latent print examiners who will
appreciate and take care of them. If you are a latent print
examiner, I encourage you to build your own library, own a piece of our
history, and enjoy some of these neat accounts of the early days of our science.
If you are interested in listing a book on this site, drop me a note and
we'll discuss some options. Have you read enough fine print yet? LET'S GO SHOPPING!!!!
