When we publish new books, we usually upload them to this website a few weeks before publication date to allow our collectors to place pre-orders. The payment is taken at the time of order and the book is despatched as soon as it arrives in our warehouse. If the book is ordered as part of a larger order then the entire order will be held until the new book is available to save on postage costs.(If you desperately need part of the order straight away then please let us know, we'll do our best to arrange it).
As a general rule we send a follow up email notification to all of our collectors to advise when the books have been delivered to our warehouse and when the deliveries are likely to be made.
