1 – BOOKS:

L.E.A. will provide any book in English, from any publisher, in any field of study, published in any country.

Some of our potential customers may think we only supply books published in the U.S. In reality they may order any English-language book published in any country. In reality a sizable number of books we supply are published in England, the Netherlands or Germany, but the publishers’ US and European stock is nearly always available at the same price. Therefore we regularly supply all books published by Oxford UP, Cambridge UP, Methuen, Macmillan, Dekker, Elsevier, J. Benjamins, de Gruyter, Springer-Verlag, etc. to any customers in the world . In brief, it is easier, faster and more economical for our overseas customers to concentrate all their orders in our New York office than it is to order them from various countries in Europe.

We have often supplied English language books published in several other nations such as Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, India, and several African countries, as well as several northern European countries). If the book is in English and in print, we will obtain it for you.

We also supply books published in Canada (in English or in French). Nonetheless customers should consult about pricing for these books. Some publishers will have their stock in the US at priced in US dollars. Others sell them only from Canada in Canadian dollars.
