  1. The description was precise and wise (this was a title with many editions, and other on-line dealers have been very careless about what they were selling). The book was carefully wrapped, and it arrived very quickly. Friendly and helpful emails. On Line Rare Books reminds me of entering a bookshop in which the person selecting the books has considered each one carefully, and where that knowledge is freely shared.
    Yours truly,

    • Thank you for taking the time to make this comment. I am so pleased that you have equated this site with entering a bookshop because that is exactly what I had in mind when I set up the site, and I have one particular Aladdin’s Cave of a bookshop in mind every time I add a book to these virtual shelves. I like to see myself as a guardian of these books, placing each one on a shelf with care awaiting someone coming along to browse and take the book for a new life on a new shelf! Perhaps I am just sentimental, but at Online Rare Books a book isn’t just an inanimate object – it has a history, and a place in someone’s treasured possessions somewhere around the world!
