Buyers outside the UK please note: since Ist Jan. 2021, when we left the EU, customs rules for sending books from the UK have become stricter, and buyers may be charged import duty on the book by their own country, or the package may be opened at customs and subject to delays. I will comply fully with the new customs rules at my end but any import duty charges do not come from me or British customs, and must be met by the buyer.

I accept payment by cards via Biblio. I also accept direct payment by cheque or bank transfer from British buyers only. I try to describe books carefully and in detail. However, books may be returned to me for any reason for a full refund within 30 days of receipt; if the book is not as described, return postage will also be refunded. Please notify me at once if returning. Books are sent in a book box, well-wrapped, and I only charge the actual costs of shipping and packing, I don't make money on it. The rate shown is for a book weighing up to 1kg. If a book weighs over 1Kg, I may request extra postage at cost. If you have an enquiry or would like to discuss your requirements, please get in touch.
