Terms of Sale

All books are guaranteed as described. Items are returnable within two weeks for any reason. Please phone or e-mail first. Any item that has deemed inauthentic or incomplete without its being so noted is returnable at any time.

We adhere to the Code of Ethics of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America

Shipping is essentially figured at cost. The shipping charge for an average octavo-sized book within the continental United States is $6.50. We will be happy to quote shipping costs for oversized items, or for shipments outside of the United States.

We normally ship UPS Ground within the United States and Priority Mail International outside of the country. Other options are often available, and we will be happy to give you prices if you request.

California customers will be charged the appropriate sales tax.
