Doug in USA September 2014 Hi Folks, Just to let you know the Sunbeam Alpine manual arrived in fine condition this afternoon.  Thanks for the heavy-duty packaging, as the post office can be brutal on books.
David in USA February 2013

Received today perfect condition. Thanks for excellent service and careful packing.

Charles in USA January 2013

Sorry to be late with this.  the book arrived in fine shape.  A lovely book.  I am still perplexed as to why it was never translated ...  thanks very much! all my very best

Howard in USA April 2012

Thanks very much, the Mercedes book The Star & The Laurel arrived intact and as advertised this morning.  Thanks so much for shipping immediately.  Thank you also for using a cardboard box to ensure it's safe arrival.  So many booksellers put heavy books in bubble wrap envelopes which don't survive well in the bowels of the post office.  It was a pleasure doing business with you!

Terry in Canada April 2012 The book arrived in excellent condition late last week. Many thanks for both packing the book well and for your help with this. I too look forward to doing more business with you in the future, I'm always on the look out for rare and interesting automotive books.
Meta in USA April 2012

Anthony in UK November 2009

Just to let you know that Automobile Year Vol 6 arrived safely yesterday, beautifully packaged.  I am so pleased to have it, already having Vols 2, 3 and 4 of this rare series.  I bought them at the time of publication, including the very first volume covering 1954.  I made the mistake of lending it to a work friend of mine decades ago and never got it back.  He left the company and I lost touch.  You learn a few lessons in life and this was one, NEVER lend books!  Now out of print, if Vol 1 ever comes your way I would be interested to know. In all probability it would be completely unaffordable but go on - tease me!!   Vol 6 is in mint condition and covers a very important year in F1 - the first British World Champion and Vanwall winning the Constructors title.I'm an author myself in a small way.  My book 'Motor Racing.  Reflections of a Lost Era' was published in 2005 by Veloce and has done very well.  Has it come your way I wonder?  Another one was 'BRM. A mechanics Tale' by Dick Salmon with which I had a good deal of input. Nice to have done business with never know about the next time!  I would never have known about Vol 6 but for the internet! 

Bill in USA  September 2009

I just wanted to let you know that I received the book yesterday.  Unfortunately, I was not here (at work) to receive it.  But when I came in this morning I found it sitting on my desk.  The packaging was secure and the book looks fantastic.  I think it's great that you have the ability to reprint out-of-print books.  It's a shame other author's don't allow you to reprint their works as well!!!

Nat in Australia August 2009 I got it! Thanks for not giving up and all of your help!  Looks good - off to the shed next weekend
Jay in Canada  August 2009

Just as a quick aside, your inventory of books is really quite amazing. It seems that every time I search Abebooks for a title, one of your listings shows up! And of course its an added bonus that your books are typically of the highest quality, as well as being very reasonably priced. The fact that you pack so well, provide easy cross border shipping, and have such great knowledge of the subject is just added icing on the cake :-)

John in New Jersey

Although we've never met, I truly feel as if you're a friend.  I can't thank you enough for your patience and guidance regarding my search for Rolls Royce books... It's truly a joy to call and actually learn about the books BEFORE I have to buy's as if your "store" is in my hometown and I can just stroll in and talk with you about what it is I'm looking for!  The quality and efficiency of your service is remarkable...and the ease of ordering via phone / e-mail is just FANTASTIC... especially when much of what I'm looking for is "out of print"!!


The book arrived safe & sound, and it is incredible.  Thanks for your e-mails, prompt service and patience.  I hope to do business with you again soon and will highly recommend you to my friends.

Chris from Pepperidge Farms Sales Department

Just a note to thank you very much for your help in supplying the three exquisite Daum crystal sports cars for our use as awards at our National Sales Meeting.  First, I'd like to say the cars were magnificent.  In fact, my manager considered only giving two awards so that he could purchase one of the cars for himself!  The three recipients were just overwhelmed.  These "trophy" awards were perhaps the most exciting that we've ever presented.  I want you to know that these cars are very much appreciated and will be cherished by the award winners forever.  Thank you also for your immediate help in getting these to us when we gave you very little lead-time.
