    Hi! I am Terry Stillman and I closed my retail storefront 
    bookstore at 1321 Kingsway, Vancouver, B.C. in June, 2002. In all, I have 
    been buying and selling books for over forty years. Children's
    & Illustrated Books has been a constant specialty. To that I have
    added Aviation as a second specialty, concentrating on titles
    dealing with WWII, but also carrying some Pioneer and WWI material,
    including some technical books. Due to a conversion in Fall, 1999
    from a General Bookstore to a Specialty Bookstore I now carry
    many fewer types of books. Currently, besides Children's and
    Aviation books, I also have representative sections of Art Books,
    Military, Naval, Espionage, History, some Fishing, Golf, and 
    The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. See the list below. You will find some  
    illustrated catalogues of books for sale on this website.
     
    NOTE: SOME OF THE CATALOGUES LISTED HERE ARE MONTHS OUT OF DATE
    DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS, HOWEVER, PROGRESS IS BEING MADE.
    PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT BOOKS IN WHICH YOU'RE INTERESTED...CHANCES ARE
    THAT THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE.
    
    
    POLICY: All prices quoted are in Canadian Dollars(U.S. at par). All books are subject to prior sale. Shipping charges are extra: in Canada, $13.50 for the lst book, $4.00 for each additional book; to the U.S., $12.50 for the lst book under 1 kg (just over 2 lb.), larger books extra; other countries, $16.00 for the first book under 1 kg., up to 2 kg. for $22.00. Insurance charges at cost. Heavier books may require extra postage. Canadian residents please add 5% GST. Payment may be made with a personal or business cheque (Canada and U.S. only), money order, bank draft, Visa card or Master Card. All items are returnable in the same condition within l0 days of receipt; please advise us in advance of any returns. Books will be held for two weeks; if payment is not received within that time, the books will be reoffered for sale.

    I am no longer listing books for sale on any book-matching sites,
    so my inventory is only available through this website or
    through my open store, Jolly Olde Bookstore in Port Moody, B.C.

  • IMPORTANT VIEWING NOTE:

    If you have trouble reading any of the pages on this website--
    i.e. overlapping of images and copy--it could be because the
    pages were set up for Netscape and if you're using Microsoft
    Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, the type face showing may be too 
    large. Go up to and click on "View", select "Type Size" and "Smaller". 
    I am gradually switching to Mozilla Firefox so this problem
    should disappear.
