Dear Colleagues:

After 50+ years of accumulating books, reprints and other materials in the course of my study of dung beetles, the time has come for me to begin finding new homes for many of them. I am not ceasing research activities (although they have diminished). Below is a first list of important works that I want to sell; most are on scarabaeids and many are very scarce and all are single copies. I am offering them first to members of the scarab beetle worker community - so please share this list with others who may have an interest. The list below is but a fraction of what I have on entomology and general works on systematics, taxonomy and biogeography. I will send out a second list later. In the meantime, if you have specific titles, or authors, or subjects you are looking for, please let me know.

All the volumes listed below are in good or better condition. Many have my signature, bookplate or name stamp. Many are old and have scuffs or worn edges or the like; all have been carefully used. Unless stated otherwise, all are hardbound. If you require detailed information (photos, descriptions, etc.) about the condition or other attributes of a particular item, please ask me and I'll do my best to satisfy your query.

Prices take into account the condition, rarity and significance of the items. But I will consider offers below the stated price in most instances. Shipping (normally by US Postal Service) is not included and will vary with weight and destination and buyer's instructions on shipping; for the more expensive items insurance will be required to all destinations where it is available. Unfortunately, insurance is virtually unavailable for destinations outside the U.S., so foreign shipments must be at the buyer's risk. The preferred payment is via PayPal in US dollars; otherwise a check drawn on a US bank is acceptable.

Please e-mail me ([log in to unmask]) to reserve an item; but please do not send payment until I communicate total cost including postage.
