Terms and Conditions


The prices quoted include shipping costs (registered, surface) per item – i.e., when we ship more than one book to you at one time, the costs will be lower. If you prefer a different shipping method (airmail, EMS – cf. below), the costs will be higher. If requested, we will quote you the prices of the different shipping methods. Prices are subject to change due to currency fluctuations. Credit card purchases can be processed in US$ only, € payments can be made only by bank transfers. We also accept PayPal.


Upon receiving your inquiry, we will double-check our stock to make sure that the book(s) you are looking for is/are on hand. We will then send you an updated quote for your purchase. Once we receive your payment resp. your credit card details, the book(s) will be shipped by your preferred method (cf. below).


Our default shipping option is registered surface mail (up to 5kg). This is the most economical way, though as well the slowest (ca. 4 to 8 Weeks for Europe, 8 to 10 weeks for North America, 10 to 14 weeks for South America, Asia and Australia, allow for delays in December). Airmail takes normally between 10 and 20 days, EMS should take no longer than a week. We assume full responsibility for the books you ordered and paid for to reach you. Our experience is that very, very few shipments go astray, and even of those a number turn up after a while – but the postal authorities will only try and trace a missing parcel three months after it has been sent off. There is nothing we can do about that and, sometimes, we have to be very patient.
