Shipping Policy and Rates


All books and dust jackets are inspected to insure you receive what you ordered, and all dust jackets are placed in archive-quality clear plastic covers for protection. All books are then wrapped in paper and then bubble wrap, and placed in sturdy shipping boxes to insure safe delivery. We ship within one business day of receiving your order and payment, primarily via USPS. (Other carrier service may be available if you request it.) Your shipping amount will be shown to you at checkout, and will be based on the book(s) weight, insurance (if applicable), delivery location, and method of delivery. In some cases, multiple book orders, or orders for over-sized or especially heavy books, will not be calculated properly by the carrier. We will do our best to find the best rate, and let you know if there is any adjustment necessary. As a general rule, the following rates apply: Domestic Shipping: Standard Shipping for U.S. residents is $3.95 via USPS Media Mail for the first book, and $2.50 for each additional book. The usual shipping time is 2-9 business days. Expedited shipping for U.S. residents is $5.95 via USPS Priority Mail for the first book, and $4.50 for each additional book. Odd and oversized books and book sets may require a shipping adjustment, but we will let you know if this is necessary. The usual shipping time is 2-5 business days.


International Shipping: Standard Shipping to International customers for single books is $26.95USD, via USPS Priority Mail International, and includes insurance. The estimated delivery time is 6-10 business days. Expedited Mail delivery, via USPS Express Mail International, including insurance, is available for $46.75 USD. Estimated delivery time is 3-5 business days. Shipping for multiple books, book sets, or oversized books will be higher, and will be calculated by weight on actually USPS shipping rates, and we will notify you of the actual shipping cost.
