Photo scans of specific copies are gladly provided upon request.

For your convenience, this website provides a shopping cart. However, you do not need to log in or create an account to make purchases.

          --- The KC "STIMULUS" : A 10 Percent Markdown ---  

 As an anti-recession move, KingChamp Books has reduced all prices on its own web site by 10 percent. This rewards customers who purchase KingChamp's inventory at rather than through marketplaces that charge ever-rising commissions and shipping fees. Thank you for your loyalty. Although the federal government contends the Great Recession has ended (even though the Federal Reserve continues printing many billions in new money each month), KingChamp has extended its "Stimulus"  discounts into 2016.

   And don't forget about our standard "REPEAT CUSTOMER DISCOUNT" -- buy a book here and then get $1 off every additional title purchased. Trade discounts are offered to bona fide book dealers and libraries.


 Please search or browse our inventory by using the search box on the lefthand side of this page or clicking on the browse-by-category link. Feel free to e-mail to confirm availability and reserve a title for 14 days. If you can't find what you need, please fill out our off-line search form and we will search our off-line inventory, other bookstores and book search services for you.

If we don't have the book you need, please try the independent booksellers listed on our Links page. Displayed below is a box that allows you to search the inventories of dozens of other small dealers simultaneously. They, like KingChamp Books, are affiliated with the bookselling portal:


 U.S.: Media Mail rate $3 first book, $1 additional. Priority, $6.00 first book, $2 additional. Canada: Priority International $13 first book, $6 additional. International: International Priority, $20 and up each book. International First Class is available upon customer request, but in some cases, it may be more expensive than International Priority.

NOTE: Despite U.S. Postal Service rate increases every year from 2006 through 2014, KingChamp Books continues to use its 2005 domestic shipping rates to keep your total price as low as possible. The 2007 increase eliminated surface rates for overseas shipping. KingChamp uses International Priority Mail envelopes whenever possible to provide the lowest rates possible.
