We make every effort to describe accurately the condition of all of our books. Images of all books are available upon request. We encourage you to contact us in advance of placing your order if you have any questions about a book or its condition. Items may be returned for any reason for refund within 14 days, in the same condition as shipped with email notice of intent to return. Please repack the book carefully to ensure book is returned in this condition.


Processing Orders


We process orders promptly. If payment is by check, books will be shipped upon clearance of check. If payment is by money order or credit card, books will be shipped within two business days of receipt of order. All books are subject to prior sale.


Shipping and Packaging


Books are shipped by the method you select on the check-out page when you place your order. The check-out page states the shipping costs and estimated delivery times. If you have any questions or requirements about shipping, please contact us before ordering. We ship domestic orders using the United States Postal Service. We do not charge for domestic standard shipping (delivery time is usually 5-21 days). Domestic expedited mail is $12.00 for the first item, $4.00 for each additional item (delivery time is usually 3-7 business days). International shipping costs and terms depend on location and services available. All books are carefully packaged and shipped in boxes or, in some cases, in padded mailers reinforced with cardboard.
