Our goal is for you to be, at the very least, satisfied with the condition of the book you receive, preferably delighted. To that end, we are generally conservative in our descriptions. You can expect the book you receive to be as described or better.

Unless indicated otherwise, any book described as a "First edition" is also a first printing. Books previously printed but in their first printing of the edition described are designated as "First thus" (or "First American edition", etc.).

Returns are accepted at any time, for any reason (or no reason) and are refunded in full, including return shipping. We accept responsibility for any book damaged or lost in shipping.
