Please use the Shopping Cart, telephone direct, or send by e-mail. If ordering by post, be sure to print your order clearly, using the full title and product code to avoid confusion. All customers paying by Credit Card must state their home address. However, orders can be sent to an alternative address (for example, to work); in this case, please indicate both addresses in the Shopping Cart.


If you wish to use your Credit Card or Debit Card, we must have the Expiry Date and Security Code (the last three numbers on the signature strip), in addition to the long number. We cannot accept American Express or Diner’s Club.

We no longer accept cheques or Postal Orders. Maestro and Solo cardholders must quote the number, expiry date, issue number (if available) and Security Code.

Payment is so easy - we take MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Solo and JCB.

Overseas customers may pay by Credit Card, International Money Order (available through your Bank), a Bank Draft (in £ Sterling and drawn on a UK Bank), by Bank Transfer (all charges to be payable by customer). Cash in £ Sterling, US dollars or Euros may be sent, but at your own risk.

However, Barbarossa reserves the right to hold the initial part of any order should a not-yet-published book or out-of-stock item be available again within a reasonable time.

European Union Countries and Rest of Europe

All packages are sent air mail as standard, so that you get your order as quickly as possible.

Rest of the World

All packages are sent surface mail. Air mail can be arranged, but this is expensive and charged at cost; if air mail is required please specify this in the Comments field of the Shopping Cart. As a guide, packages to the Far East and Australasia take two to three months surface and two to three weeks air mail. Please note: as a direct result of the 9/11 terrorist atrocity, shipments to the United States are subject to close scrutiny and possible delay by US Customs.



Most books are well described on this site. However, should any title not meet your specifications, you may return the book in good condition and within fourteen days of receipt for a replacement or refund. This guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights. Barbarossa Books may refuse a full refund if any returned items are damaged due to insufficient packing.

Most of the books listed on this site are in stock and can be despatched quickly, but please allow at least 28 days for delivery in some cases and many weeks for some imported books.


All transactions will be processed in £ Sterling. The use of the currency converter is to give you an indication of the cost in your chosen currency


Every effort has been taken to ensure that the book descriptions are correct, and the website information is updated regularly. However, publishers and official UK importers can and often do change prices, availability and publication dates at their discretion - without giving any notice.
