Berkley Books 80's Order Form

Yesterday in the mail I received a parcel containing an unusual addition to my Bond collection... a Berkley Books order form from the 80's.

Here in Australia in the 1980's the only way to purchase Berkley Bond novels was to go to a new book store, request a US book order and then wait about 8 weeks for it to arrive.  The price was usually a ridiculous amount too.  

We never saw order forms like this.  Now over 30 years later I own one.  I'm not sure the books are still available from Berkley Books though !

Hi Bazeer, I love these bits of ephemera every bit as much as the books themselves because these were the things that normally got thrown away but luckily for us not all the time! Tim
