Packing & Postage Rates


Our Despatch Policy:

We want your book to arrive in the best possible condition. We therefore only use the highest quality packing materials with all orders bubble wrapped and despatched in heavy duty cardboard book mailers to ensure maximum protection.

We also guarantee safe delivery - should your book fail to arrive or become damaged in transit we will refund your purchase price and delivery charges in full (please see our Trading Policies for details).

Whenever possible multiple purchases will be combined into a single package to minimise delivery charges.

Our Post & Packaging Charges:

Please Note: Shipping prices for UK and International deliveries are as quoted on our Abebooks and eBay listings - please refer to our quoted delivery charges on those sites.

Our packing materials cost approximately 90p per delivery (depending on the size of your books - packaging for the largest titles costing up to £1.25). The bulk of our p&p cost is determined by Royal Mail / courier company - please use the following link to check the cost of Royal Mail deliveries to your location:

Despatch Rates & Estimated Delivery Times:

We aim to post all orders for which payment is received by 12:00pm (Monday to Friday) the same working day - however when attending auctions this is not always possible and despatch may occasionally take up to 48 hours. Orders for which payment is received after 12:00pm are posted the following working day.


Due to excessive delays experienced by some customers we no longer send orders by surface mail unless specifically requested by the purchaser. All prices for international shipments are therefore for airmail delivery - deliveries typically arrive within 4-5 working days for Europe and Scandinavia and 5-10 working days for other countries.


If you would like us to quote for surface delivery instead of airmail please contact us by using the email link in the left hand panel on this screen. Please note that past experience has shown that surface deliveries can take up to four months to arrive.
