Delivery and Shipping
It is not intended to profit from Postage and packing, but UK postal rates have several hundred tariffs depending on book weight, size, speed of delivery and destination, thus for most books, standard costs and delivery times will apply. However costs may be higher for very large or very heavy books. A set of volumes, described as one 'item' actually comprises several 'books'. If you require goods to be despatched more quickly or securely (courier, etc), please let us know your requirements and we will do our best to comply. We do try to ship books within 48 hours of order, during Monday-Friday.

Orders usually shipped within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 1 LB, or about 500g. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.
