The Images:-

We have taken great care to fairly represent and describe all our products. The images are compressed to reduce download times. This compression sometimes alters the colour balance and will degrade the overall image quality. If you wish to see more detailed images, then please contact us and we will send you a better quality image.

The Stock:-

Our guaranteed original stock is constantly changing and we try to keep the web site updated as items sell or are added. Please accept our apologies if a listed item becomes unavailable. Given the unique nature of our products, we cannot guarantee to be able to obtain an identical alternative. If you request an item that is out of stock, then we will inform you typically within 1 working day.

Our Prices:-

Each item has a listed price in UK Pounds sterling. The total order price is converted to your local currency on your credit card statement. For a precise value in your currency, you could use the Xerox on-line currency converter (www.xe.com). Within the EU, antique maps and books are zero rated for VAT, so no tax is payable. You are responsible for the payment of any local taxes and duties for orders placed outside the EU.

UK dispatches are sent by Royal Mail.
dispatches are sent by airmail, if the item is over £50.00 they will be sent "signed-for" airmail.
