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.
We guarantee the authenticity and condition of all our items, and offer a full refund within two weeks of delivery if you're unsatisfied for any reason. If this is the case, please contact us via the "Ask the Bookseller a Question" link in the "Bookseller and Payment Information" section. We take pride in being very easy to work with and tend to most always respond within 24 hours.
We ship packages daily, safely packaged in sturdy boxes. Shipping costs are calculated according to an average book size and packing materials. Some heavier books and sets, especially sent internationally, may require additional postage, and we'll write to discuss options should this be the case. Feel free to write us in advance of ordering and we can run an estimate.
Note on International Sales: We make it a policy to accurately fill out Customs forms, declaring the shipment as "Merchandise" and declaring the item's purchase value, and will not declare an item as a "gift" or falsify the purchase price to avoid import taxes. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
