Delivered exactly what I wanted!

Delivered exactly what I wanted! Shipment tracking information could have been better… Package was late and no ability to actually track it. But I got what I wanted and it was a great resource.

Good availability; delivery somewhat late

I was very pleased that the item I wanted was available, and it arrived in very good condition. However, it did not arrive when it was scheduled to arrive, despite my having paid extra for faster delivery. The company did refund the expedited shipping charge, which pleased me.

Value for money

I have ordered couple of times from them and got an excellent service both the times. I ordered an 1987 newspaper from them the first time and it arrived at an excellent condition. Also they did send me a 1887 newspaper as well,mostly that is a reprint, however loved reading it. Second time ordered a 1923 newspaper with frame. The frame didn't fit the newspaper correctly. When I emailed them about it, they did refund me. Will order from them again.

Purchased a birthday book for my 100 year old Grandmother

Purchased a birthday book for my Grandma’s 100th birthday! It came in a beautiful box, her name engraved on the cover, and her special birthday message on front page. I also gifted her a magnifying lens to go with it since the print is so small. After she opened it, she immediately started reading it from cover to cover without the use of magnifying lens! Her eyesight is better than mine for sure! She loved looking at it and so did everyone else at the party. Such a special book!
