We recognise that when buying books over the internet there are various aspects that are important.

1. The book should be as described.
2. Buying the book should be a straightforward process.
3. Books should be well packed, protecting corners to ensure that they are not bumped.
4. A speedy service should be provided.
5. The client should be informed when the book has been posted or if there is going to be a delay.

We aim to satisfy all these points and we receive many positive emails by way of feedback. A selection of them is given below.

If you have any comments we would be pleased to hear from you.

Pleased to confirm safe arrival of the Tompion book today. Thank you for dealing with the order so quickly (and for packaging the book so well). Wonderful service all round!

I have received yesterday my nice book about skeleton clocks. Exactly as I wanted, and in good state, thanks for this. Your description about the book is correct and well done. This is the magic of internet: it is possible to get here in the Netherlands a book out of print since long, and coming from over the channel...
