I have a stock  of  books and I will ship the same day or the next day after PayPal payment is received.  

I inspect each book so each book  meets my somewhat unreasonable quality standards. The printing and binding cost has skyrocketed but I will  keep the selling price as low as possible.  

The 1st edition is available at a modest price.  It provides a detailed description of the  current film manufacturing process. Used copies are listed on for $100 to $200+!

I have  sold  thousands of  copies in 55 countries, satisfying my  goal of  documenting how film is manufactured. The second edition include  historical background  and  even more illustration that were made exclusively for the book. 

My email is: 

Your payment via PayPal or money order mailed to the author is your order. My PayPal Account is:    If you provide an email address, I will confirm your order. Books are sold by: Robert L. Shanebrook, Rochester, NY 14622, USA 

I pay the PayPal fee. PayPal requires that I ship to the address associated with the buyer's account. PayPal allows no flexibility on this. If you want shipment to another address use PayPal's "send money to a friend" service option.

Alternatively, you can buy using  US Postal Service Money Order sent to:

I ship quickly, within two postal days of payment. If you do not receive your US order within 21 days or international orders within 45 days from the time of payment you must notify me in order for me to consider replacement. This is determined by USPS/UPS  policy. The delivery time anywhere in the World  is seldom exceeds 21 days. Delays are  usually caused by importing customs.  I  am  very  careful in  completing  customs forms.
