Terms & Services
Our Customer Commitment
We remain active collectors and bring a collector's sensibilities to bookselling. We strive to treat our customers as we wish to be treated. This ethos informs our terms and services.
Even though much of the antiquarian book business is now online, we try to bring the same level of personal care and attention that a collector might find in a traditional "brick and mortar" bookshop.
Our descriptions are reliably detailed, accurate, and forthright, always accompanied by images of the actual item offered, enabling our customers to be fully informed and confident about any purchase. We endeavor to answer inquiries fully and swiftly. We pack and ship all orders with care and attention.
We have considerable experience with most of the myriad works by and about Winston Churchill. We are committed not only to helping Churchill’s words find your shelves, but to sharing our bibliographic experience via our online Guide to Churchill’s books, our blog and videos, and direct communication. What we know we are happy to share. And what we don’t know we are eager to learn. Please feel free to contact us with questions and comments.
For orders placed via our website, we accept payment in U.S. dollars ($, USD) via credit card, PayPal, cash, or, for returning customers, $USD check.
Confidential Customer Contact List
We periodically contact our customers regarding new listings and special opportunities. Join our contact list to receive first notification of new listings and exclusive offers.
Standard shipping for delivery within the United States is USPS Priority Mail with tracking. For international sales we typically use USPS International Priority service. We are happy to use other customer-preferred shipping methods. No matter what shipping method we use, we invoice at cost. We do not charge for careful packaging and materials.
If you need your item urgently, we will do our best to accommodate.
If you seek an item you do not find in our current online inventory, please contact us; we may have it in unlisted inventory. If not, we will likely be able to find it for you. We encourage us to let us know your wants.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us immediately and make arrangements to return the item within ten days.
We are able to help assemble full collections of Churchill’s works, working closely with individual collectors to identify and accommodate their preferences and budget. We are also able to help you commission preservation cases and fine bindings.
We never share your contact information, purchase history, or preferences with any third party.
We gift wrap all orders. We are happy to include gift notes.
