Used books return policy

All used books sold are as-is condition; by purchasing a pre-loved copy you accept that we will send you a book with the type of damage described in the product summary. It may be in better or in slightly worse condition than you anticipated. We have done our best to provide photographs and describe the general type of damage the copy you receive may have sustained, but we cannot catalog each copy, nor can we provide you with a written description of a specific copy’s condition. We will only accept returns under the following conditions:

  • Damage to the book does not match the store description (e.g. if you receive a copy with unbound pages, but the description only indicated minor scuffing)
  • Pages completely missing (you may opt to receive PDFs or photocopies of the original pages at no additional charge)
  • Mould or other decay damage (we will not knowingly send out a mouldy book; we give the books a quick inspection, but on occasion books may have sustained water damage that is not immediately apparent)
  • All returns claims must be transacted within 14 days of purchase
  • All returns must be pre-authorized; contact us at with your order number and reason for return prior to shipping back any books
  • We do not provide refunds on shipping charges
  • If you’re not sure about any of the points in this policy, it might be best for you to buy a new book instead of a pre-loved one. Keep an eye on the website, we’ll be offering new books soon!
