About MAPLE RIDGE BOOKS

I'm an sole proprietor of Maple Ridge Books. I've been selling books for some 22 years. Although my stock is small in numbers, I am very careful to offer books in the best condition possible. I try to keep shipping costs reasonable, which is not easy these days. I am more than willing to send additional photos of books, or provide more details.
