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. We have about 40,000 books on the store shelves, and new arrivals come in every day. We have about 11,000 books available on-line and are adding to that inventory fairly regularly.

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

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.
