"Dear Wally: I received the book last week and am delighted with it. Such great condition considering its age. Much better condition than your very modest description of it conveyed. Many thanks for your assistance in this matter and for your promptness in shipping it to me.
I also want to thank and commend you for your diligence in locating the book when it was thought to be missing. You would probably be the only bookseller I can recall who has ever taken the trouble to locate a missing book as well as being concerned that the description given was an accurate and honest one. I greatly appreciate such attributes and look forward to doing further business with you should the opportunity present itself.
With kind regards and best wishes from down under.
Sincerely yours, Adrian"

Book arrived in this morning's post and is superb. Thanks for all your help at every stage, the trouble you went to with the photographs, the flexible payment methods, excellent value postage, everything was great. All that trouble for a modestly priced, but (for me) much sought after title.

Here is part of a very special note that I got from Shelburne, VT:
"I received (the book) in great shape for its age and I am not disappointed! I traveled back in time, as you might imagine, when I saw (it). Each page is familiar and I could hear my mother's voice again - - what a wonderful gift . I will tell all my friends about "Eyes of the Owl." I appreciate what you do."
That is why I run this business, not because she bought a $2 book.
