Copies of Zubiri's books in Spanish can be purchased online from the following sources, all of which accept credit cards on line and all of which have secure servers to do so:
Book on Hand which, despite its name, is an online Spanish bookstore based in Barcelona with a very good selection of Zubiri's works and a good interface.
Librería Cervantes, in Oviedo, also has a nice selection of Zubiri's works.
Librería Porrúa, a fine online bookstore in Mexico City, especially valuable for its many low-price editions of philosophy books in Spanish. They have some of Zubiri's books as well, though the price is higher than in the Spanish stores. Their interface is very good.
Librería Jovellanos, another fine online bookstore in Mexico City, with a good selection of Zubiri's works.
Another fine bookstore in Madrid with which the Foundation has had very good experience for both Zubiri and other books is Libreria Fuentetaja. They do not have a web site, but requests and payment may be made by e-mail. They are familiar with Zubiri and have been able to obtain and ship copies of all of his books, unlike some of the other bookstores. Books are sent promptly and shipping charges are reasonable, even for air shipment:
Calle San Bernardo 48
28015 MADRID, Spain
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Readers may also wish to contact the following bookstore in Salamanca, whose staff has been very cooperative:
Librería Plaza Universitaria
Plaza de Anaya, 9
Phone/Fax (34) 923-268-932
Tell them that the Foundation Xavier Zubiri recommended them. Ask for the manager, Asunción. Note that she does not speak English; you may wish to send your request by fax. Contact the Foundation if you have difficulties or need assistance.
Finally, for copies of Christian classics of all types, many in bilingual editions, there is the old-line publishing house Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos (BAC). Their web site is not yet operational, but they can be contacted by e-mail. Purchases still require the sending of a check, however:
Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos
Don Ramón de la Cruz, 57 - 1o
28001 MADRID, Spain
