Terms of Trade

Prices are for customer’s guidance – they may change!

The prices published in the catalogue are firm for books which we have in stock - these are mostly second hand.  Books coded XN are new & are included here from publisher’s lists. We have to order these in specially. Regrettably, publishers sometimes change the price, delay publication or withdraw books without warning therefore, for NEW books, the price charged will be that ruling at the time of delivery to us.

We are happy to accept returns for credit if they are not as described in the catalogue. We may offer credit for other reasons at our discretion.
