CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

"I‘m sending you this email, first, to thank you again for a most pleasant, international transaction from start to finish: your initial, honest description of the three book set, responsive emails, ease of payment, meticulous packaging, speedy shipment, and your kind, follow up email.  In Gratitude." E. Trimboli

"The book was perfectly packaged - in fact this was the most perfectly packaged book I have received over the years - well done." G.M. Davies

"Brilliant communication, great service, and packaged really well. Item arrived before the suggested delivery date. These guys are an absolute pleasure to deal with and will be very happy to buy from you again. Many thanks for a perfect hassle free transaction." D. Carter

"Many thanks for the three books which arrived in perfect condition - expertly protected and packaged - it was almost a shame to open the very neat brown paper wrapping. As a collector of first editions, I'm absolutely delighted with these three rare hardback, near fine, beautifully bound first printings. Thank you for providing such a superb, very high quality service. Very best wishes." J. Speirs

"I know I should, but I don't often get around to leaving seller feedback but Hall of Books really impressed me. This book is a gift so it was very important it was in the right condition - described as 'as new' it absolutely is, being in perfect condition. But the packaging was also excellent: a tough Jiffy bag and inside the book wrapped in brown paper+inside that more bubble wrap. THANK YOU!" A. Williams

"Wow! Super fast delivery to the Netherlands, three days before the delivery estimate. Well packaged (double bubble wrap) and item as described. What I appreciated especially and made me choose this seller, is their detailed description of the condition of the book. Which turned out to be completely accurate. I'd recommend them! Chrissie 

"Absolutely superior. I have ordered over 500 books on-line. This book was the best-ever packaging - three layers: outer a padded mailer, middle, bubble-wrapped; inner, strong, thick butcher paper. Also, book condition was 'fine' although advertised as 'very good'. Highly recommended. If available, I would buy every book from this seller." T. Walker

"Well described item, fast delivery and well packaged. A pleasure to find a seller who knows how to accurately describe a book's condition. So important when buying without seeing the book." P. J. Andrews

"Thank you so much for the lovely book which has arrived this morning. I am delighted with it. Is there somewhere I can leave you positive feedback, I would like to! Kindest regards." J. Peters

"Book beautifully wrapped in brown paper, then in a padded bag. Book arrived in perfect condition, sent and bought by a book lover! Will buy more books from this source, many thanks". G. Cameron-Ramshaw

"I purchased this to replace a book I got some 35 years ago from the School Bookshop when I was a nipper. I consider the book I purchased recently to be in good condition for a 2nd impression of a book originally published in the early 1930's and very reasonably priced. It arrived almost immediately, well in advance of the estimated delivery date. Very pleased with the service provided." P. Barry

"Excellent service. Very fast shipping and delivery. Packaging was protective but also easy to open. I could see that these people love books. When I received the book I realised that I already have it... But I was so happy with the quality of the service, which was much better than the average service provided by many booksellers I bought from, that I decided to keep the book the same..." H.A. Nascimento

"If anything, the book is in even better condition than the seller described. It had also been very securely packaged for postage. I am pleased with the book and delighted with the quality of service provided." M. Aspinall
