Terms of Sale

GUARANTEE. All items are guaranteed as described and may be returned within fourteen days if they prove to be unsatisfactory.

A despatch copy of the ABE manifest travels with your order.

Prices are net, with carriage charged at cost. Packing is free.

Descriptions. We aim to describe books as accurately as possible. Unless otherwise noted books are published or printed at London, are crown or medium octavo in size, and in the original cloth and in very good condition.


Shipping Terms

Postage is charged at cost. The majority of our books are of a standard size of 1 kilogram but some individual items, or sets, are much heavier and may require extra postage. If this is the case we will advise you before shipping.

We used to offer Royal Mail Economy Rate to customers overseas but this seems to be taking a lot longer than before and in our experience is now not so reliable. We are, therefore, sending out all overseas orders by International Tracked. And inland, for more expensive books, by Royal Mail's signed service.

Pamphlets weigh less than standard costs and will be charged at the actual cost for the relevant weight.

Packing is free and substantial. We have had a number of compliments regarding our packing since we started bookselling in 1973. We use industry standard book sleeves for single lightish volumes and we pack sets and big books in cartons. The books are enclosed in biodegradable plastic bags and surrounded by biodegradable pellets. We are very keen to reduce our plastics use to nothing.

All books in transit are insured without charge under our general business policy.
