Terms of Sale

All books are offered subject to prior sale.
We attempt to describe any defects we see and to note the presence of bookplates and previous owners' signatures. We unconditionally guarantee the authenticity of author signatures and inscriptions. 
All items may be returned within 15 days of receipt and must be in the same condition as originally shipped. Before returning a book, please notify us so that we can advise on packing, shipping and insurance.
We accept all major credit cards, wire transfers and PayPal. We also accept checks drawn on U.S. banks. Shipments to New Jersey addresses will be charged 6.625% sales tax. Payments from outside the U.S. should be made in U.S. dollars. 

New clients are requested to send remittance with their orders or to supply suitable trade references. We gladly offer deferred billing to libraries or other institutions.

We ship books through the U.S. Postal Service. If you would like us to use another carrier, please let us know. 

Within the U.S. we offer shipping by USPS Media Mail for $7 for the first book and $3 for each additional book. USPS Priority Mail is $12 for the first book and $4 for each additional item. We strongly suggest using Priority Mail because of delivery problems with Media Mail.  Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 pounds, or 1 kilo. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. Orders from outside the U.S. will be billed at cost, but will likely be at least $40.

Note to buyers outside the United States: Any customs duties, taxes, or fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
