The book has arrived, and it's excellent condition. Very impressed
with the packing you have done. I am amazed with the state of the text.
Was it really printed in 1649 ? The quality of the cover is superb as well.
Many thanks.

There is something very comforting about Spelman which
is not always the strongest feature of many other
similar bookshops, I must say. So, well done for
making it such a serious and yet welcoming place. I
certainly took a lot of pleasure visiting it--more so
when I find something that "I've been looking for for

A long sought-after book located with you and ordered on the 8th February,

good order and condition and at a reasonable price.
Great service!
I will spread the word about Ken Spelman Rare Books, and you will be my

A quick note to say that Elaine arrived safely and in good order. She was
very well packaged, and seemed to enjoy her intercontinental trip. I could not be happier with the book or with your service. Thank you very much. You are a credit to your industry. For what it is worth, I have now bought books from over 100 bookshops all around the world, and this is only the 3rd congratulatory email I have sent! Like most Australians, formal politeness does not come naturally (although we are otherwise quite pleasant).

Having just ordered via Bibliofind, I did my usual check of the dealer's web site. I wish to congratulate you on what is unquestionably the best book website I have seen. The layout is attractive and intuitive, and it was very fast to load & run. Alibris should buy your interface! I wish to particularly thank you for your links page. This is the most comprehensive and thoughtful I have come across. There are topic links included therein that I have been (vainly) searching for for ages. You have made my day.
