Terms of Sale

We accept cash, checks, money orders, as well as Paypal, Visa, Discover and MasterCard. Each book's condition is individually described and we take great care to make sure we describe any defects and markings. We cannot always guarantee the item you order will be in stock. Books may be placed on reserve for ten days. Refunds may be issued if book is not as described and if it is returned in same condition originally shipped.  In some cases, a small restocking fee may apply.  Please rest assured that  make every effort to describe our books as accurately as possible.

Trade slips are not redeemable for books in the shop's glass case or from the shop's website.  However, special exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the material traded in and the material traded for.  Thank you for your understanding.

Shipping Terms

Orders ship usually within two or three business days of date of order.  Occasionally, extra time is needed to locate a book. If this is the case we will let you know. 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 and do not charge extraneous fees for handling.

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 $4.00 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. We take every precaution to ensure your books are accurately addressed and professionally packed. In addition, you may request insurance, which will be billed at cost. Thank you for your patience as we strive to get your books to you as quickly as possible!
