books from shops
Please note that Vernon Coleman books are no longer
readily available in bookshops (terrestial or on line). This is because shops
steadfastly refuse to carry stock (despite years of trying) and seem to prefer
to order individual copies from us through wholesalers. If they want six copies
they will send in six separate orders. The whole process is so tedious, time
consuming and expensive that we have pretty well abandoned it. (The bookshop
sends an order to a clearing house which sends the order to a wholesaler who
sends the order to us. We then send the book to the wholesaler who then sends it
to the bookshop. The buyer pays the bookshop who sometimes pays the wholesaler
who then eventually pays us if we send an invoice and at least one or possibly
two or more statements.) The environmental cost of all this sending and carrying
is phenomenal. Time, energy and money is wasted.
The easy way to buy
Vernon Coleman books is to send a cheque to 'Vernon Coleman' at the address on
this page. Please allow 28 days for delivery. (We aim to do much better than
this but 28 days allows for the Royal Mail to overcome delays caused by snow,
rain, leaves, sunshine and the other entirely unexpected hazards by which it
seems to be constantly surprised.)
How to order:
cheques or postal orders payable to `Vernon Coleman'.
2. List the titles you require and please print your name and address.
3. Postage prices are now so absurdly high that we don't charge anything. All our book prices INCLUDE postage and packing within the UK. Sadly, because of Royal Mail's prices and regulations we can no longer send books outside the UK.
