The great collector Mr. DeLucia wrote in 2016 :"I should point out that in the 30 years I’ve been collecting I’ve seen one set sell in auction, Baburin 2011, for a little over $3,000! Quite scarce."

Postage EUR (insurance included / split to 2 parcels) : Austria € 7,80; Germany € 19,80; other EU countries € 25,80; Non-EU countries please ask

I combine shipping – you always pay just real postage! The packing materials are free.

I send with the so called "Paketmarke" (for further information https://www.post.at/privat_versenden_paket_paketmarke.php) which is in general the most cost effective and reliable way to send parcels in Austria. One feature is that the shipment costs are defined via the the longest and the shortest side of the parcel. The weight isn´t important although it is limited to 31,5 kg. The parcel is also insured up to € 500,-.

  1. PM 045 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 45 cm) GER=€9,90, other EU = €12,90
  2. PM 070 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 70 cm) GER=€14,90, other EU = €17,90
  3. PM 120 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 120 cm) GER=€19,90, other EU = €22,90

Therefore if you win more than 1 lot and the books fit into the same parcel, the shipment costs will be the same as for 1 book. 

Important : Please wait with payment until you get my confirmation email, as the shipping costs have to be calculated.
