All books are wrapped in tissue, brown paper and bubble wrap. The books are placed in a cushioned envelope, a protective cardboard book wrap or in a well-cushioned cardboard box.
Customs charges and import/export duties and taxes may be charged to the customer by their local custom authorities. These charges are usually payable, directly to the courier company or local border authority, by the customer when the parcel enters their country. In many countries printed books have a reduced rate of VAT/TVA.
Shipping is charged at cost price. Charges are based on the weight of each book and its packaging. If your book order is particularly heavy we may, in some rare circumstances, contact you for extra shipping charges.
We are happy to send your parcel on a quicker service if you need it by a specific time. We can arrange shipping with the major carriers and couriers. We can also ship on your own account. Please contact us for details and a quote.
