Pulp & Circumstance

Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada

Welcome to Pulp & Circumstance on Biblio. My name is Barnaby. Once a brick and mortar bookseller, I am pleased that I can now offer scarce and/or collectible books and other items via this platform.

P&C strives to ensure that all items are clean and fairly described. Packages will be wrapped with care and dispatched as soon as feasible, usually on the next business day.

We do not use stock photos. All our photos are of the actual item offered for sale. We try to include the publishers' own descriptions of content by including photos of dust jacket flaps and back covers so far as they seem useful, and we also use photos to show material flaws where we can.

The "Pulp & Circumstance" watermark you will notice in many of our photos does not, of course, appear on any of the items themselves.

Please note that the colour in our photos often fails to come out right. The hue shifts a bit due to the limitations of our equipment, the lighting in our workshop, and of course my own lack of photographic expertise.

Special discounts are available on all books priced exactly $14.99. The price per $14.99 book will be reduced to $12 each (a 20% discount) when you order 5 or more of these at the same time. You will not see the discount on your initial order. The price adjustment will be applied by P&C after we receive notice of your order from Biblio and before your order is dispatched.

Shipping costs per book are always cheaper when more than one book is sent in the same package. Read more about shipping charges in "Terms of Sale" below.

Feel free to ask any questions you might have by email. We will usually respond within 24 hours. Happy browsing!

Eric has also lived in Montreal, Hawaii, the Phillipines and Munich, before finally settling in Vancouver to establish the Wayfarer\'s Bookshop in 1996. Eric has travelled extensively throughout what he calls the "Known Book World" and he has visited more than 4000 used and antiquarian book shops in over eighty countries, including ILAB colleagues in all twenty-two ILAB affiliated national associations. This extensive network of potential suppliers allows Eric to find many of his exploration rarities. However, Eric's travels have not been limited to the bookshops of the world alone, but instead to better understand the historical travel literature which he trades in, Eric has also visited many important sites in the history of world exploration including the sources of the Amazon and Nile, the Northwest Passage, Ushuaia (the world's southernmost town), the once forbidden cities of Harar, Thimphu and Timbuctoo, as well as the Seven Wonders of the World. Eric is also an avid amateur mountaineer and has travelled to Mount Everest, the base camp of Huascarn (Peru's highest mountain) and climbed Kilimanjaro. Future expeditions to Mount Everest Advanced Base Camp (Chinese side) and an Aconcagua climb are planned for 2011.
