You may order by email to: rainer-lotz [at] gmx.de or in writing to: Rainer Lotz, Rotdornweg 81, 53177 Germany, or by fax: 0049-228-365142. You order in any currency - we do the conversion. However, all invoices will be in EUR (€) only.
Please order by lot number and artist.
Items are available on a set sale basis (fixed prices)



Our grading code used in this list may vary from what you are accustomed to. It allows for eight steps ranging from N (=mint) via N-, E+, E, E-, V+, V, to V- (=extremely worn, and painful to listen to). Physical damage will be identified separately.

Almost all lots, including paper items, have stickers which are not listed separately. Likewise: we do not normally list ex libris, previous owner's name or minor pencil marks in second hand books. Please do not enter bids if this is a matter of concern to you!

Trades: we are always eager to trade any items from this list against our 78 rpm disc wants (such as rare or unusual labels; jazz and hot dance from outside the USA; ragtime, minstrelsy and cake-walk; ethnic and early world music; German personality; and anything unusual) as well as gramophone needle tins (we buy and swap).

We do not prepare sound dubs or xerox copies of items from this list.

Please write legibly and check your order for typos and errors. 

Our guarantee: In consideration of the enormous amount of items offered in a Lotz-Liste we cannot always check the condition acoustically (by playing the item) and sometimes have to rely on visual grading. And we cannot always check the condition of books and journals page by page. We do not claim to be perfect: If you feel the item was not accurately described we guarantee full refund of your bid (not postage) as soon as you return the item. We expect payment within a fortnight after notification and we expect to receive complaints also within a fortnight of delivery.

Shipping charges: All bidders will be notified. Shipment after receipt of your payment. Charges at cost. (Inlandspakete versenden wir zum Pauschalpreis von 10,00 EUR). The cost of insured sea/air combination is about 24 EUR for a 1 kg packet, and each additional kg is 2,00 EUR to the US, or 3,00 EUR to Japan.

Printed Lists: You may buy the printed, book-size illustrated lists by sending a 10$ or 10€ bank note.
