What Our Customers Say...

Just to let you know my signed by the grand daughters, limited edition of Stories from Dickens arrived safely in Melbourne this morning. Considering that I only placed the order on 24th March, 5 days ago, I am again astonished at your fantastic prompt and safe delivery of a well protected book in a DHL box half way across the world.

Many, many other leading book dealers around the world come nowhere close to your efficient dispatch and delivery service.

Chris, Australia

I really am most grateful to you for taking so much time and effort on my behalf and I can’t thank you enough.

Graham, UK

The beautiful books arrived today, thank you so very much! I will take care of them for another 30 years or so.

Charles, USA

The books have arrived safely!  They are all magnificent! I don't know how to thank you sufficiently for your generosity in giving me a very special discount for the three books.  If you really meant it when you said the discount is a Christmas present, I must say it truly is a superb gift from the kindhearted Santa Katherine! Your kind attention is another thing to commend.  Thank you indeed.   Also, I am impressed with the delivery.  It was so quick that i was dumbstruck when told early today i have a parcel from England at the mailroom.  Another thanks for this nice service. I could go on forever to say how your great services have fascinated me, but I know you are too busy for that.To end my note, please accept my sincere thanks for everything you did.  I will keep checking your inventory and make more purchases.
