Overnight or two-day shipping options will be difficult for us. Please order now for Christmas presents; we will be happy, you will be happy, and the delivery people will be overjoyed.
Speaking of which, we have just received a mailing from the Post Office with their "Mail By..." dates. The "deadlines for domestic ... and military packages" for delivery by Christmas suggest that the deadline for Parcel Post (aka Media Mail, which is what we use) is December 14; for Priority Mail, December 21; for Priority Mail Express, December 23. For APO/FPO, Priority Mail is December 10, and for Priority Mail Express it's December 17.
Order now: give us a relaxed holiday, and make sure your Postal Carrier doesn't need a hernia operation.
The shipping department will be closed for Christmas (23 December - 6 January) (although the annual meeting of the American Historical Association will take up that last weekend, too). You can order, as usual, but there will be a delay in getting your order.
A shipment of Before the Mast: Life and Death Aboard the Mary Rose has just arrived - three copies of a two-volume work. Buy now, and you should have plenty to read during the next snow storm.
Non-American customers: shipping rates to anywhere else have gone up quite a bit. Please write us before placing an order, so we can find out how much it will cost to ship, inform you of that amount, and ask if you are still willing to order. Yes, it can be that expensive.
