Chantambre, 91720 BUNO-BONNEVAUX, FRANCE),

- in cash : only for direct delivery in Paris (see below).
An invoice (PDF file) will be sent by E-mail upon request.
- by planned direct delivery in Paris (Châtelet-Les Halles RER station), so with no mailing costs,
- by mail (in practical terms, mailing will mostly occur on saturdays). Delivery costs for France :
9.85 € for one book, 14.95 € for two. For foreign contries (in Europe), "Colissimo" deliveries incur
a total cost of 18.00 €, but a lower charge of 4.60 € should be possible in most cases - this is
to be confirmed in the not too distant future. Outside Europe : to be confirmed.
In any case, initial e-mail contact is recommended, for the following reasons :
- in the case of a mail order, it enables me to confirm that the order has been received
and is being processed,
- it creates a link for the possible sending of corrective (free of charge) updates,
- if needed, it enables me to provide you with information about this book, its sales process,
and perhaps the next edition (beyond 2020... possibly in PDF format and for spreadsheet data
only, incorporating a 10th year which could be 2020).
