Terms & Conditions

Descriptions

Camp Books is powered by over 10 years’ worth of experience handling rare materials, and an extensive reference library related to bibliography and LGBTQ+ history. Physical descriptions use terminology best defined in ABC for Book Collectors, and historical notes are followed by further reading for each description. When in doubt, we benefit from proximity to the British Library for any extra research needed, as well as the insight of colleagues from the book trade, the library world, and academia. Please feel free to use the research and descriptions of each book offered here for educational purposes, and you are free to remix or duplicate the material here provided you cite Camp Books (campbooks.biz) and highlight any changes you have made. If there are any further materials, images, or readings we can provide to assist in your own work—especially educational or artistic—please contact brooke@campbooks.biz. Camp Books is committed to making the information each object contains as widely accessible as possible in facsimile or other formats whenever possible.

 

Pricing

The books offered here are a mixture of Camp Books’ own stock and items offered on consignment. Pricing is based on condition and rarity as determined through research, especially relying upon OCLC and ViaLibri.net, and/or on the value determined by consigners. Objects sold pay for the running of the business through the purchase of further materials. Camp Books cannot offer appraisals, but if you are interested in offering materials for sale or consignment, please get in touch (brooke@campbooks.biz).

 

Purchase

Prices are in pounds sterling, and shipping is calculated after you order. If you are based in London we can arrange delivery or pick-up in person to avoid shipping costs. All goods remain property of Camp Books until payment is received in full. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase you can return the object within 10 business days.

 

Community & Sustainability

Camp Books is careful about how it spends its money, supporting queer- and POC-run businesses first & foremost wherever possible (so far it’s ever possible). Camp Books is committed to the environment, running its digital platform on wind energy and using only recycled and/or recyclable materials for its day to day operations, stationery, printing, and shipping.
