Kestrel Books

How to Order

We have over 30,000 titles available in the store.  These are not searchable through our website so you must visit the store to view and purchase them.  However, a selection of about 1000 of our books, mostly out-of-print and hard to find, are searchable online using the Browse Books or Search Books links in the main menu or you can order directly from us. Our prints are only available directly from Kestrel Books.

If you wish to order directly from Kestrel Books, just email us the description of the book and the book inventory number, along with your shipping address. We will advise you of the shipping cost. The book will be held pending your purchase for up to 5 days.

Shipping Costs

If you order through ABE Books they will quote their shipping costs. If you order directly from Kestrel Books, we will quote costs based on destination and whether by air or surface.

Our usual shipping cost to Canada and the U.S. is from $6 to $13 US.  Larger/heavier books will cost more, as will books shipped to international destinations. Insurance charges will be at cost.


Payment Methods

We offer the convenience and security of PayPal for online payments. We also accept VISA, Mastercard and American Express. Just phone or email us your order and we will arrange the payment.
