History books, unlike many paperbacks and novels, come in all shapes and sizes. The standard despatch costs which we quote are for a typical university press monograph weighing around 1 kilogram. Pamphlets will cost a great deal less to send, whereas a large architectural folio or a multi-volume set will, of course, cost more.


We use a very good parcel carrier for larger orders and they provide a next working day service within the United Kingdom and at a very economical rate.


Overseas orders are usually sent by airmail unless very heavy.


If you would like confirmation of despatch costs prior to sending your order please ask, we will be only too happy to oblige.  All orders are despatched at cost.


We do not charge for packing or insurance nor do we seek to make a margin on carriage charges.
