The book arrived this morning and I write to thank you for posting it so quickly and packing it with such care.
The condition of the book is fantastic.
 My son said how much he would like a copy of the book, but having searched online said they were all sold.  By great good luck I found your website and am delighted with my purchase.

I'm extremely pleased with it! I've been collecting New Zealand printed music for nearly 40 years, so I was delighted to have the chance to buy this little gem. I greatly appreciated your efficient service and excellent packing. Even in the middle of Covid restrictions, the booklet got from one side of the world to the other, in only a week or two.

I just wanted to thank you for the Lewis Carrol books, they arrived some weeks ago and in very good condition.
Again I'm very thankful.

I received my order item today safely and I just wanted to tell you how happy I am as the item was in  extremely great condition, truly I was impressed!  And thank you so much for packing it well, I really appreciate what you’ve done for sending this beautiful [Tarot] deck.  I will take good care of it.  


The Darwin item I purchased from you arrived today and I am very pleased. It was exactly as you described it. Further, you did a d*** good job of packing it. It may be the best packing of a book that I have experienced in almost 50 years of collecting.

Thanks again!! I hope we can do more business together in the years ahead.
