    Default Various Books for Sale - Deity and the Sword 3 vol set

    All prices are indicative and open to offers.
    Postage & Packaging will be on top depending on delivery location, I am in the UK, but I have access to a courier service so will be a cheap as possible.
    I understand I donít have any feedback and history on e-budo.com and I admit I am only here to sell these items to the people who will appreciate them.
    (see http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthre...-Hello-from-UK)
    I can say that I am legit and trustworthy - take my word for it
    I am a regular seller of other items on another forum and have not had any negative feedback.
    Payment can be via paypal with that security in place.

    If you know of any other e-budo member or non-member that may be interested in these books, please pass on the information and I will be happy to answer any questions and supply more photos of these books.
    I am listing here before I go through ebay (and their applied charges).

    Complete 3 Volume set.
    All three are hard cover, with blue material with gold embossed lettering with dustcovers.

    Nice collection you have there. Sadly I won't be buying any...because I already have every one of those...but hopefully other members (ones with more money than I have at the moment, hopefully) will be along shortly.

    Good luck.
    Yours in Budo,

    Thanks BrianI bought all of these books (except the last one which was a gift) back in the early 1980s and they are just wasting away here and it would be nice if they went to a home where they can be of interest and reference.Got to say, that when I starting looking at them all again (for this selling exercise) they did bring back many happy memories.Especially the Sato book, the photos are just sumptuous. all the bestDean

    There is a general time limit to edit any post after 15 minutes.
    This is because it otherwise can happen that people post things and then after they get some heat they want to deny what they wrote and edit it out, making the other part look like the bad part.

    Received the books in pristine condition. Very fast shipping. I'd like to give cheers to D for the great buy. Just a recommendation to anybody wanting something he offers to sell, he's a good guy and does business right.
