AbeBooks' uniqueness is our network of independent booksellers who work with us to provide the most diverse selection of rare, used and out-of-print books on the Internet. It is these sellers, with their experience, commitment and love of the used and out-of-print book business who help all our buyers find that treasure they've been looking for.
All books are shipped promptly within 1 - 2 business days.
Shipping rates are based on a book and package weighing 1kg. If your order exceeds this, we will contact you and let you know the new shipping rate.
