Domestic Shipping Information


Preferred Shipping
We charge only actual postal costs--there's never a "handling" charge.

We prefer to ship via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.  The flat rate for this service (for most books) will be $5.60.  With the USPS Delivery Confirmation number you can track your package on the Internet, via e-mail, or via a toll-free number.

If you're buying multiple items, we can consolidate your shipment and send everything together. As many as 8 or 10 books can sometimes be sent by insured Priority Mail for about $15.00.  Let us know the various titles and ISBN numbers, and we'll let you know the exact cost for shipping everything together.


Alternative Shipping
For very heavy books, we also offer "Media Rate" shipping with Delivery Confirmation.  This service is much slower than first class mail.  Inquire if you prefer this mode. 

Express Mail (overnight service) is also available.  Please inquire.


International Orders

Direct Internet Orders
The fastest, easiest way to order is directly from our Internet book catalog.  The "Buy Now" buttons by each book link to our secure (encrypted) system, so it's safe, fast, and easy to order and pay by credit card.

We'll promptly confirm your order and payment, and send you a detailed shipping confirmation.  Most orders are shipped immediately.

E-Mail Orders

In most cases we'll recommend shipping your books via Global Priority Airmail, which is now available in about 50 countries worldwide.  This service costs only a bit more than regular airmail, and is much faster and more secure.

Just send a note, telling us the book(s) you want, and your mailing address, and we'll immediately confirm the total price, including shipping, by return e-mail.  Click here to send your e-mail order.

Then you can make payment with your credit card (via PayPal), or send us a check or money order, and we'll ship promptly.  We also accept Pounds Sterling and Euro payments via PayPal.

Please inquire for particular postal rates to your address.

If you're buying multiple items, we can consolidate your shipment and send everything together. Let us know the various ISBN numbers, and we'll let you know the exact cost for shipping everything together.
