Most books are well described on this site. However, should any title not meet your requirements, 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. We buy from many hundreds of publishers and suppliers from all around the world, so please be patient!


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
