"So, the book arrived in perfect condition, it's really a beautiful copy, like new, thank you very much for your kind and quick help and careful packing". June 2008. DR, Hungary

"A truly great catalogue on British butterflies and moths…" (MMIII)

"Thank you for the absolutely stunning lepidoptera catalogue."

"It was a great pleasure to read your latest catalogue".

The moth ID guide "…arrived safely today….and will be a much needed companion to our recently acquired moth trap."

"I have just spent the weekend drooling over your superb catalogue MMIII.!"

"That price is absolutely extortionate" Customer bought the book six weeks latter (having, no doubt, trawled the internet universe for a cheaper copy)

"I find it rather depressing that collectors are driving the prices up, and that their books will probably gather dust on their shelves - couldn’t you sell them blank pieces of wood with authentic wrappers and let us enthusiasts continue to use the books as the author intended."

"Many thanks – just what I wanted"

"I am delighted with this. You were right about the plates. Thanks." (The Transformations of British Butterflies by H N Humphreys and J O Westwood).

"Yes, you were quite right about the Aurelian Legacy…….I am frightfully impressed with your service especially your careful packing."

"Many thanks, soon the only place where it will be possible to see butterflies will be in books."

"A well produced and interesting book"

"I look forward to receiving subsequent catalogues as I am not on the internet and enjoy browsing through a list"

"Thank you for sending the book so promptly – it arrived the next day".

"An acquisition of a set of my own represents the realisation of a lifelong ambition. The books will bring us hours of pleasure and will become a family treasure." (The Natural History of British Butterflies by F W Frohawk).

"Many thanks for…( the Guide) – it should be a great help."

"I am quite delighted with the books, they were absolutely first rate; right edition, good condition and wonderfully packed to your usual standard".

"The books are installed on my bookshelves and look most imposing. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to acquire these unique volumes at what was, I guess, something of an advantageous price. I am truly grateful and will treasure them."

"You are NOT a man of your word" Oops! (Telephone conversation)

"Very pleased with my purchase"

"Many thanks. It is a splendid tome."

"I was thrilled with the books"

"Thanks. It is rather a splendid book" (Southwood and Leston’s Land and Water Bugs).

"Many thanks for the book. I have been searching for, and just missing it for close on 10 years!!! Cheers." (Barcant’s Butterflies of Trinidad and Tobago)"

"Thank you for the pamphlet….. It was such a rare and pleasant surprise to receive a purchase item without previously having been required to supply credit card details, date of birth, inside leg measurement and all sorts of other twaddle. Thank you for improving the quality of my day." 20/7/09. JMB


"My compliments for a very nice homepage, easy to handle and with good overview" M S, (Sweden) May 2007

"I am absolutely delighted. I hadn’t expected to find a copy with my first ever e-mail enquiry…and at a sensible price"

"Just a quick note to say the book arrived today and I would just like to say how pleased I am not only with the book but also the prompt attention my order received." K L. 16/7/07.

"Thank you very much - parcel arrived safely yesterday, much earlier than anticipated. Congratulations on extraordinary service." R N, South Africa. 6/08

"Received in good condition - lovely book, with thanks." C S. 11.09.
