I WILL ALWAYS FULLY REFUND ALL PAYMENT MADE IF THE BUYER IS UNHAPPY WITH MY DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK.

A MESSAGE FOR OVERSEAS BUYERS:

IF THE BOOK OR BOOKS ARE FAIRLY HEAVY I WILL OFFER THE BUYER THE OPTION TO SELECT AIR MAIL OR SURFACE MAIL DELIVERY AS THE COST OF POSTAGE IS A CONSIDERATION WHEN BUYING FROM ABROAD. LET ME MAKE CLEAR HOWEVER THAT www.royal mail.com STATES THAT ALTHOUGH SURFACE MAIL IS MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE, THE TIME TAKEN TO DELIVER IS USUALLY BETWEEN 8-12 WEEKS. I ALWAYS POST ON RECEIPT OF PAYMENT AND IF A BUYER SELECTS SURFACE MAIL I SURELY CANNOT REASONABLY BE HELD LIABLE FOR NON-DELIVERY UNTIL THE 12 WEEKS HAS ELAPSED.

IF THE BOOK DOES NOT ARRIVE I WILL ALWAYS WILLINGLY REFUND THE BUYER AS IT IS NOT THEIR FAULT. ALSO SURFACE MAIL CANNOT BE TRACKED AND PAYPAL WILL NOT REFUND ME WITHOUT A TRACKING NUMBER. IF THE BUYER PREFERS TO HAVE INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR MAIL, WHICH COMES WITH A TRACKING NUMBER, THIS COMES WITH AN EXTRA COST BUT WILL BE OFFERED BY ME IF REQUESTED.

I HAVE I HAD MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL TRANSACTIONS WITH MANY OVERSEAS BUYERS AND I DO NOT WANT THIS TO CHANGE. THANK YOU.

THERE ARE NO SMOKERS HERE AND BOOKS GO OUT AFTER BEING DUSTED WITH WIPES.
