1. Jamison purchased a set of encyclopedias from Encyclopedia Britannica who then assigned the contract to Merchants to complete the delivery and receive payment. The contract contained shipping instructions and specified Jamison’s home address as the place of delivery. However, Jamison never received the encyclopedias because they were shipped via UPS to her P.O. Box. Jamison refused to pay the installments due on the purchase and cancelled the purchase.
Does Jamison bear the risk of loss even though the encyclopedias were never shipped to her home address as specified?
2. Corinthian Pharmaceuticals Systems, Inc., placed a telephone order with Lederle Laboratories for 1,000 vials of vaccine. Corinthian then followed the telephonic/ computer order with two written confirmations. Neither the phone order nor the confirmations mentioned a price.
Is there a valid offer?
