Professional Courtesies

Ian Kahn of Lux Mentis, Lux Orbis published a useful post on bookseller to bookseller business etiquette. I don't do a lot of face to face buying and selling so the only one of these folkways I've encountered myself (and abide by) is the dealer discount but this post is a great reference should these situations come up.

One rule that I made for myself is that when I trade in books at a B+M store, I always go over my credit so I'm giving them a bit of cash. It makes them more receptive when I keep coming back.
