Sales Tax

For shipments within the state of California, state sales tax will apply.

Those with a valid reseller certificate on file will not be charged sales tax, please indicate such in the comments section when ordering.


Our standard method for shipping to domestic customers is USPS media mail service; the charge for a single book is $4.00, please add $2.00 for each additional book (when ordering a set, each volume counts as an individual book).

For international orders, we use the USPS International First Class when possible, or Priority International when necessary. International shipping is billed at cost, we do not upcharge for our packaging; we will notify you separately of the cost via email.

If there is a need to receive your order quickly, please contact us and we will make all necessary arrangements to meet your needs.


We do not accept returns for books sold through our storefront. 

Returns of online orders are subject to review on a case by case basis.
