Conditions of Use

Books and any other items are offered subject to availability at time of order. You can shop on-line or contact us directly. We aim to provide an efficient and helpful service, and do our best to despatch books as quickly as possible. (maximum four days) However, please allow for weekends and bank holidays when calculating the arrival time of your book (s).
If you wish to cancel an order, please let us know as quickly as possible. If the order has already been dispatched, you may return it at your own expense and we will refund the cost of the item/s. It is essential that you inform us before returning any item. Every attempt is made to describe items in our inventory accurately. Those items are therefore fully guaranteed so that if for any reason you're not satisfied with the delivered item you may return it for a full refund. In accordance with the UK's Distance Selling Regulations (, items may be returned within one week (7 days) for full refund, provided you contact us first for a Return Authorisation Number and return the item properly packed and insured (if of a value greater than GBP20). Occasionally there may be information, typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order). We will immediately inform you if the correction substantially affects the validity of the order.
Book Descriptions:
Neat ownership inscriptions or dedications are not always detailed. We try to give a fair and reasonable impression of the condition of each book. Ex-lib: former library book where the only indication of such ownership is a library stamp, and/or bookplate and perhaps a reference number, on the front endpapers (anything more intrusive will be detailed). Yellowing of pages due to age and type of paper will not be an excuse to return a book. (If we consider the discoloration to be abnormal, we will mention it in the description). Minor rust marks and spotting, foxing will be mentioned and the price of the book adjusted accordingly. 19th-20th century books will invariably have signs of ageing and good common sense should be applied as any book of this age will have signs of usage. Any defects, staining, water damage, loose binding, defacing, missing illustrations/pages, and anything else that we feel detracts from the condition and value of the book will be detailed.
