Shipping Terms

Domestic shipping is $4.00 per book via Media Mail or $6.00 per book via Priority Mail. For foreign orders airmail in one form or the other is the only option available. We use Global Priority Mail for most of our airmail shipments. The medium envelope which suffices for a well packed octavo or smaller is $24.95 ($20.95 to Canada and Mexico). The medium flat rate box is $61.75 and can take up to six octavos. It is often necessary to use the medium flat rate box for royal octavo and larger items (quartos and folios and sets as a rule). The rates quoted with your order are default estimates. If actual costs are more than modestly different than those quoted we will contact you to get your approval to charge the higher cost. On multiple title orders,  both domestic and foreign, of four or more books rates are actually often lower than the quoted rates and if so your final bill be adjusted to reflect that. (For slightly faster international delivery, other options, at greatly increased cost, are available upon request.)

Please note: Due to an flaw in our shopping cart program orders are allowed for any quantity of a title. If you need more than one copy of the title you are ordering please call 415-831-3228 and confirm availability directly to avoid disappointment.
