Making your purchase could not be easier. Orders may be placed via e-mail, post or telephone. When ordering by post we would strongly recommend you contact us to confirm availability before forwarding payment.
All telephone orders must be confirmed via e-mail or post at your earliest convenience.
We will always acknowledge your order via the e-mail address supplied.


Please contact us to confirm the availability of any item on our website to avoid disappointment. Whilst we make every effort to update the website on a regular basis, occasionally an item may be sold or become out of stock prior to your enquiry. We are more than happy to reserve any item for you and await your prompt payment.


Payments may be made by cash, cheque, and postal order or via Paypal. Customers using paypal can therefore pay by credit/debit card.
Please note: Payments by Paypal attract a surcharge of 4% to cover associated fees incurred for this service.

Cash Payments:
            We can only accept cash in UK sterling. We can accept Euros or US dollars at an agreed prevailing rate, but only by prior agreement.
For your protection, we strongly recommend cash payments are sent by registered post.

Payment by Cheque:
            We can only accept cheques drawn on a UK bank account. Please allow 5-7 working days to clear.
Please make cheques payable to: Martin Dunne
All payments must be cleared & the funds available before items are dispatched.


To assist customers who wish to purchase items costing over £250, we are pleased to offer a monthly payment plan. Customers wishing to take advantage of this option may spread the cost over five equal monthly payments. Once payment is made the balance owing will be confirmed by e-mail on a monthly basis upon receipt.
We DO NOT charge interest, surcharges or any other fees for this service. We cannot however, extend payment terms or alter the payment plan and all monies are non- refundable.


Due to the fragile nature we always prefer cases of taxidermy to be collected in person where possible. We can also deliver by prior agreement.
Any item may be collected from our showroom in Essex by prior arrangement.
We post worldwide (legalities permitting) and whilst every precaution is taken to protect all items i.e. bubble wrap, polystyrene chips etc, we cannot accept any responsibility for items damaged in transit.

Due to the varying sizes and weights of many of our books we believe it unfair to quote a fixed post & packing rate that covers every title.  To keep it simple and straightforward we charge POST & PACKING AT COST which we are always happy to quote for. We believe this is the fairest way, particularly for multi purchases. We do however endeavour to include known p&p costs with each title.
To help ensure a safe and speedy delivery all our books are sent recorded post and will therefore need to be “signed for “at the destination. For added security we obtain proof of posting and insurance comes as standard.  This also helps safeguard against delivery problems particularly, as some of the scarcer titles cannot be immediately replaced.
Books can be collected should you so wish.
