Welcome to our website, we hope you enjoy browsing our range of high quality natural history books. We are always happy to hear from potential new authors regardless of the stage of your project. To our valued customers we are very grateful for your business in these uncertain times! If you are purchasing from overseas please make sure you are familiar with your customs and import regulations and any potential import duties you may be liable to pay. There is an increasing tendency for parcels sent to EUROPEAN COUNTRIES to be held up at customs AND for the authorities to contact the recipient and request payment of import and VAT duties before the parcel will be released! This can add significant delays to our customer receiving their goods. There is an option for us to PREPAY the IMPORT DUTIES AT THIS END, which should speed up customs clearance considerably and also not result in any additional surprise payment requests. Please email for more details. Thank you.
