Ordering books

To have books shipped to an address not in the United States, please go to foreign orders.

(To order by mail, scroll to the bottom).

Books are sent by the USPS or by a combination of the USPS and UPS called "Mail Innovations", which replaces the old media mail. Most books are shipped from Michigan, zip code 48197. Priority mail generally takes 2-3 business days once it is shipped; Mail Innovation takes longer. The USPS has eliminated priority regional boxes; we can now offer just priority flat-rate envelope and priority flat-rate box. The box can hold 3-4 books.

Some of our books are available as pdf ebooks. The ebook versions of the vector calculus book and the student solution manual include corrections to all errata posted September 15, 2022. However, you will not be able to print ebooks. Please read this before ordering an ebook.



The rates below include a new increase in USPS and UPS rates.

Mail Innovations Priority Envelope Priority Box
1 book $6.95 $8.05 $17.10
2 books $8.85 $16.10 $17.10
3 books $10.75 $24.15 $17.10

Sales tax: If books are to be shipped to New York state, sales tax is due. But if the book is required or recommended for a course, an exemption is possible (this link is to the NY State Department of Taxation and Finance website). If you qualify for an exemption, please send a copy of your student ID, and the name of your school and the class for which the books are required or recommended, to hubbard@matrixeditions.com. Then when ordering the book, choose "United States, not NY" from the shipping options.




See note above about extra charge for priority shipping when only the vector calculus book (print version) is purchased.

If you would prefer to pay by Paypal, please write Barbara Burke Hubbard at hubbard@matrixeditions.com.
