AbeBooks' uniqueness is our network of independent booksellers who work with us to provide the most diverse selection of rare, used and out-of-print books on the Internet. It is these sellers, with their experience, commitment and love of the used and out-of-print book business who help all our buyers find that treasure they've been looking for.
All books are available on a first come/first served basis. Returns require pre-authorization from us, and are permitted only if the book is not as described or we accidentally send the wrong book from that listed. Return postage is refunded only if book is returned insured. Books containing CDs or DVDs, whether opened or not opened, may not be returned. We do not offer Dealer discounts and cannot drop-ship.
Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. All Books are shipped wrapped in bubble wrap before being sealed in waterproof bubble mailers. Our rates for Priority or Expedited shipping does not include the use of boxes due to the extremely high cost of mailing. Customers insisting on boxes will be charged for extra postage at current postal rates and any approval for such increase must be authorized though ABE before the books can be shipped .
