As we appreciate the age and delicacy of our stock, we safely wrap each item for transit.
Sometimes, we may need to use a pre-used box for the optimum safe journey of the item.
Postage in the UK is by First Class, Royal Mail and costs are usually based on weight and size. European delivery is via Air Mail and the rest of the world by both Air and Surface Mail.

For non-fragile items, we may use a courier.
Sometimes, we may be able to hand deliver for free if you are based around London & Brighton.
