Terms of Sale: I've done my best to state clearly and truthfully the condition of each and every book I have listed on-line. Sometimes, however, books change condition insofar as they sit on the shelf for a long time, get moved by customers, get taken to and from book fairs, and so on. If for some reason you don't like your purchase or it arrives somehow damaged, or if it doesn't get to you at all, you might be eligible for a refund within 30 days of the estimated delivery date. If you've changed your mind about ... [More Information]

Shipping Terms: Most orders will ship within one to two business days, but often times, they will go out on the same day as they are ordered. I've based my shipping costs on the assumption of books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized (extra thick, extra long, etc.), I may contact you to let you know that extra shipping is required. Bubble mailers and boxes will be expertly and securely wrapped and monitored. Please contact us if there is anything extra or different you need us to do.

Store Description: Blue Jacket Books offers a carefully selected inventory of used and out-of-print books in many fields, including the arts and sciences, poetry and prose, social sciences and humanities. We carry rare, antiquarian, and collectible items, as well as books for pleasure reading and research. Most of our inventory is used, but we have a selection of new titles of local and special interest. We regularly purchase libraries, estates, and personal book collections, as well as individual books of value. We are located in a Civil War-era building in historic downtown Xenia, Ohio, about 20 minutes east of Dayton. There are about 30,000 books on the store shelves, and new arrivals come in every day. The vast majority of our inventory is not listed on-line, including most of our inexpensive paperbacks, so if you can't find what you're looking for on the website, we invite you to contact us directly. We are always happy to search for out-of-print books for you, and we are doubly happy to place your school-book orders for you.
