Postage rates
Our postage rates are closely monitored to reflect the actual costs to supply orders. If our postage rates are prohibitive we recommend exploring placing an order through Book Depository via this link as they offer free worldwide shipping to most regions.

Multi-volume sets

A small number of the large multi-volume sets available will be charged at higher rates depending on weight.
