Terms of Sale

We accept cash, checks, money orders, American Express, Visa and MasterCard. All books are in very good or better condition unless otherwise described. Books in wrappers (soft covers) and dust jackets may be slightly chipped. Owner's name, inscriptions or stamp and bookplates are not described unless obtrusive. Items may be previously sold. We cannot guarantee the item you order will be in stock. But we sure try! Books may be placed on hold for two weeks (fourteen days). Any book may be returned for any reason within two weeks of date of purchase for a full refund less shipping costs.

Shipping Terms

Orders ship within two or three business days of date of order. Often they ship the same day. Occasionally, extra time is needed to locate a book. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your order is heavy or over-sized, we may contact you to request extra shipping. We ship at our cost.

Within the U.S.A, we ship via United States Postal Service (USPS) media mail, with delivery confirmation, unless another level of service or carrier is requested. Standard media mail shipping costs are $4.50 for the first book and $2 for each additional book. Media mail generally takes 5 to 14 days but has been known to take longer. Elsewhere, we ship as requested and at cost. California residents please add appropriate sales tax.

Please note that once your order is shipped, it is beyond our control. Your order's safe and timely arrival is the responsibility of the US Postal Service and, for international shipments, foreign postal services. We take every precaution to ensure your books are accurately addressed and professionally packed. We also use US Postal Service Delivery Confirmation whenever possible. In addition, you may request insurance, which will be billed at cost.  We can also supply you with proof of shipment (delivery confirmation) on request. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
