CERA Used Book Exchange – List #4

This month, our used book list is entirely made up of original Electric Railway Historical Society publications, printed between 1952 and 1967. We are selling the extra copies we accumulated while working on the Complete ERHS Collection DVD project.

These have been sorted out, based on quality. If we have more than one of a certain title in that quality grade, it is noted. Not all titles are available.

Titles are referred to by their number. When placing your order, use ERHS as a prefix, followed by the publication number, and the grade, as in “ERHS49EX.” It would be helpful to indicate on your form whether substitutions of other quality grades are OK, if the item you desire is no longer available.

Copies of this list were sent to all current CERA Members at the beginning of this month. While the list is dated May 1st, we waited a week before posting it to the Internet. This gave the “snail mail” people more of an even chance to get their orders in. We thank our Members for their contributions.

Used books, donated by our members, are being sold to raise money to help fund CERA programs and services. Since we are a 501(c)(3) organization, such donations may be tax deductible. Do you have used traction books that you no longer need? If so, why not donate them to the CERA Used Book Exchange?

HOW TO ORDER – You can pay by check through the mail using this form, or online using PayPal or a credit/debit card. Please do not send your credit card information through the mail. As books are sold, we will cross them out on the online list, like this.

You can also contact the CERA Office by telephone at 312-987-4391. If we are not available, leave a message and we will get back to you. We are generally in the office on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the very least, and other days as needed.

To order books online, drop us a line at ceraoffice@gmail.com and CERA will e-mail you back an invoice that you can pay using PayPal or a debit/credit card.

All sales are final. Used books are sold without warranty or guarantee. No haggling or quantity discounts- the items here are priced to move. Please do not ask us to put items on “hold” for you. Books will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Current (2014) CERA Members in the United States get FREE SHIPPING. Other Domestic buyers pay $5 Shipping and Handling per book. International shipping is available by special request. Contact us and we will work up a quote based on actual cost.

Books are graded as Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor. Significant damage is noted, where observed. Some amount of normal wear is to be expected in books that are “of a certain age.”

When using the mail-in form, in the unlikely event of an overpayment, if a book you want is no longer available, please indicate whether you would prefer a refund, or a credit that can be applied to a future purchase. If you send your order by mail, keep a copy of the form for your records.

Please note: Illinois residents must include 9.25% sales tax with payment.
