We do not recommend surface shipping for International Orders. Delivery times are in weeks, not days. Further, we reserve the right to refuse orders of high value books requesting surface shipping, as such shipments are not insurable. We will contact you by email, to discuss shipment options.
Books Sold Subject To Prior SaleMost of the books offered on this site are also offered through other sales venues. While we update our listings on all sites frequently, on rare occations a book may have already been sold. If this were to occur we will contact you via email as quickly as possible so that you can make other arrangements.
Unless we have made special order arrangements with you, we do not drop ship orders. All of our listed inventory are owned by us and are on our selves ready for shipment.
