Store Policies


Payment Methods Accepted


We accept credit/debit cards - using Paypal; Amazon Payment; and Cheques (£GB only, made payable to Andmeister Books).  Cheques in currencies other than £GB are not practical due to the high charges UK banks impose to process them.




Please email if returning books. Books may be returned within fourteen days. 

If there was mistake in the description or faults unmentioned the total price will be refunded. 

If you find that you ordered the wrong book, or just changed your mind then only the book price will be refunded. 


Shipping and Packing


We strive to have books sent the next working day, unless requested otherwise. If you have any queries shipping please contact us before ordering. 

Very heavy books may need extra shipping costs, if so we will contact you to agree this before proceeding.


Book Condition and Descriptions


We try to describe books as fully as possible. We use the following definitions and note any particular defects.

NEW - Book is new, unread, in print and in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

AS NEW - To be used only when the book is in the same immaculate condition to which it was published. There can be no defects, no missing pages, no library stamps, etc., and the dustjacket (if there was one) must be perfect, without any tears. 

FINE (F or FN) - Approaches the condition of As New, but without being crisp. For the use of the term Fine, there must also be no defects, etc., and if the jacket has a small tear, or other defect, or looks worn, this should be noted.

VERY GOOD (VG) - Describes a book that does show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper. Noting any defects.

GOOD (G) - The average used worn book that has all pages or leaves present, noting any defects.

FAIR - Worn book that has complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title, etc. (which must be noted). Binding, jacket (if any), etc., may also be worn. All defects must be noted.

POOR - A book that is sufficiently worn, to the point that its only merit is as a reading cope because it does have the complete text, which must be legible. Any missing maps or plates should still be noted. This copy may be soiled, scuffed, stained or spotted and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc.
