Domestic (inside the United States) Shipping rates: We charge shipping on ALL orders. Our standard charge is $10.00 for the first book and $4.00 for each additional book. Shipping is via United States Postal Service (USPS) priority mail (3-10 days), and is the default method used. Media mail is $3.99 for the first title and $2.00 for each additional title. We have found media mail delivery times to be inconsistent so please allow additional time for delivery if you chose this option (up to 6 weeks in some cases like Alaska and Hawaii). Insurance, if required, is additional, and charged at cost.
Non-domestic (International) Shipping rates: We charge shipping on ALL orders. Orders are normally shipped via USPS International First Class (delivery time varies) and cannot be insured (weight limit four pounds per parcel and size limits do apply). If insurance is required, shipment must be made by USPS International Priority at additional cost. Our cost for any expedited shipping service will be charged in place of the domestic standard charges noted above. Maximum insurance coverage varies depends on destination country and may require shipment via USPS International Express Mail. Please do not ask us to misrepresent book values for duty purposes.
Heavy books or large shipments: Heavy books or shipments will be charged additional postage at our discretion to cover the additional postage costs incurred.
Uninsured packages: Please note that the USPS does not provide any sort of insurance on packages. If you require insurance against loss of package or damage to packages in transit you MUST buy insurance.

Wantlists: We accept wantlists and try to quote new material to existing customers on a priority basis.
