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.
