Books are firstly wrapped in strong protective bubble wrap before being mailed in a bespoke card book mailer , for the majority of books.
Large volumes and sets will be mailed in very strong hand cut card boxes. Being a bibliophile myself I completely understand what a precious item a book is, and I understand therefore how to handle a book carefully and treat it with the reverence it deserves.Not resident in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. From UK buyers only I will also accept Personal Cheques and Postal Orders. If paying by either of these methods your package will take a little longer to reach you as it will be despatched only when funds clear. If anything in my condition ratings I will tend to down rate a book rather than run the risk of being misleading. The customer will remain responsible for the cost of returning the item.
