My parcel arrived before 7.30 AM this morning . That’s less than 6 days since I found your listing on the Abebooks website and placed my order. I’m sorry to admit that if I’d ordered this book from a dealer in the UK, I really do not think it would have arrived so promptly.
Tim in the UK


Great selection and great service.
Uko in Kirkland, WA


I had no issues with ordering from you (it was over ABE Books). The price and service and delivery were professionally done.
Richard H. in Wingham, Ontario, Canada


Have done business with you many times in the past, and it has always been a good experience.
Jeff in Arkansas


You're an excellent bookstore. Every transaction has been smooth. With only one exception, each book I've ordered has been in very good or better shape. In the case of the one exception, where the book was old and fell apart, you provided an immediate refund.
Dennis


One of the greatest and fairest booksellers. Does not sell every book for exorbitant prices and e.g. it is often cheaper to buy the book in my case in USA at Zubal incl. taxes, than ordering it in my home country germany.
Thanks again! Jan in Germany


I find it refreshing I have found a bookseller who I can TRUST on the accuracy of the condition of the books. Many sellers I have tried (and don't use anymore) have said their books are Very good or Good condition and the find the book has bad bindings and/or full of highlighting and markings inside on many of the pages making the book useless as well as being a rip-off for the price paid.
Ray in Clayton, CA


I didn't expect the order to come before Christmas -- but I did nonetheless. Very fast service.
Henry in Indianapolis.


Always great service!
Ed in Santa Fe


I am especially impressed by the comparatively rapid delivery time from USA to UK.


Books that I want quite often turn up on your lists, and at reasonable prices.
John P., Southampton, England


It is very good to know that, should an ordered book for some reason not arrive, Zubal offers an excellent 'back-up plan’.
Henk in Langenhagen in Germany


Exquisite in every detail, well packaged for safety, and a timely delivery.
Thank You! Laurie in Hartford


As a native Clevelander, Zubal's is somewhat of an institution. I used to enjoy rummaging through their shop on West 25th Street but now enjoy browsing their stock online. A truly great dealer with terrific service, knowledge and a wide variety of books to choose from Tom from Cleveland

The book that I was purchased was in pristeen condition (despite having been published and printed almost TEN years ago and is a first edition, first printing as well! It was packaged reasonably well, shipped promptly and was received undamaged. I am very pleased and I will definitely be purchasing from Zubal Books in future
Bill from Long Beach, CA 90806


I've purchased from you before and enjoyed the excellent service. Thank you.
Martin in Wichita KS


I am a faithful and recurrent customer of Zubal (it is very easy to verify!). For purchasing (after chasing) used books on mathematical science, ZB has no peers in the English speaking world and very very few in the ? speaking world. When I'm seeking for a difficult to find work, my first motion is looking at Z's catalogue and, often, my quest succeed. The old factory in the belt of Cleveland is a sort of Ali Baba's cave, with no thief, of course. Robert in Crêts-en-Belledonne near Grenoble (France). pleasantly surprised!
Marty in upstate NY


Excellent service and good quality books priced well.
RS in Cupertino


Today I received the books. Thank you again for the fast, uncomplicated delivery and the very well preserved books! At least five, full golden stars!
Jan from Germany


Book was in brand-new condition as advertised. Very satisfied with your service.
Jeffrey from Brooklyn, NY


I've been a customer for more than 24 years. I hope to be for another 20. :)
James, Bronxville NY.


Excellent service all-around would definitely buy more books from you in the future.
Joe from New York


Generally speaking, Zubal books are quite well packed and their description is very accurate. In my opinion Zubal bookstore is a reliable store. Prices are in the same line as the average market but, usually, books are better than average.
Juan from Pozuelo de Alarcon, Madrid, Spain


I'm very pleased with the packing and with how quickly you ship the book.
Jack in Kalamazoo, Michigan


The attention to detail is what separates Zubal Books from its competition. A superb website, with an intuitive interface, and a comprehensive book inventory, plus value added pricing, is a winning combination. It is always an rewarding shopping experience, worthy of high praise, and continued patronage.
Jack, from Arizona


Very pleased with my item and with your excellent customer service.
Linda, Santa Clara, CA


Great service, great books.
Leonardo from México City

Books arrived speedily, in great condition,and as described.
Bill, Plattsburgh NY


Fast shipping and secure packaging.
Guy, Decatur, GA


I am a bookseller and buy from you for my personal collection, so am quite picky. I have always had the best experience w/Zubal.
Gayle from Independent Books in Long Beach, Washington


I have bought from 20+ online used book stores, and your package is, without a doubt, the best!
Guy in New York


Zubal is one of the first vendors I would buy from.
Geoff in Dubuque, IA


I've been dealing with Zubal Books for years and have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the firm and its personnel (Tom Zubal in particular). For an academic mathematician like me, who is schooled along old-fashioned lines, including the use of real, hard-copy, paper books, ready to be read and (if you'll forgive me) written in, Zubal Books is a true haven.
Michael, Los Angeles.


You did what you said you'd do...so I'm happy.
Ian in West Sussex, UK


I sometimes pay a little more for you excellent descriptions, 95% of the time your price is really lower, lower shipping, too. Over 10 years with no returns, thanks.
Bo in St Pete, FL.


Packaging was especially well done.
Patrick in Kansas City


As always, superb customer service, shipping and pricing. I really like those periodic sales events, especially when my interests coincide with what is on offer!
Bruce in Albuquerque, New Mexico


I have been shopping with Zubals for 25 years. I usually find your books on ABEBooks and always prefer to buy from you over anyone else. I have purchased a number of books from you over the past few years as I embarked on a new research project.
I like your operation a great deal and respect you as the most significant used bookseller out there. You have high quality scholarly books at reasonable prices. When I am just looking for a quick reading copy, I may choose another vendor, but for collectible quality, I would always use you.
Robert in Lebanon, NH


I shop through ABE, and will likely continue to use that service. I am impressed with the book and packaging quality from Zubal, which will influence my choice in future transactions.
Will, from Bainbridge Island, WA


Always a pleasure to do business with Zubal books.
Gary from Portland, Maine


Great traditional antiquarian bookshop. While it is good ordering online someday I hope to visit the store itself. I know I can buy with confidence.
Mark from Livington Montana


The book I ordered was in wonderful condition, and the price was remarkably low.
David in Rochester, New York.


Books arrived yesterday and look amazing. The Silverberg was even better than expected.
Adam


Your pricing and service continue to be first-rate.
Sam, Charlottesville, VA


You often have scholarly monographs that are somewhat difficult to obtain for reasonable prices--affordable to those of us who teach! Many booksellers overprice these monographs beyond our reach. So Thank you.
Bob, South Bend IN


Have always been completely satisfied with my purchases from Zubal Books. Thanks you for the great service you provide. I am perhaps prejudiced by way of my age but IMO there is no substitute for books. Real, paper and binding books! I think that your business is a valuable and important activity. THANKS!
William L. on Lummi Island, WA.


Impeccable as usual. Thank you guys!
Daniele in Imola, Italy


Wonderful service with a knowledgeable and accurate description. I love vintage supernatural books and the one I recently bought from you was wonderfully described (in this instance most sellers would not know that the fading "ghostly" image on the front pictorial board was, in fact, deliberate and painstakingly achieved. Kudos of the highest order!
Philip, in Atlanta, GA


I come to Zubal for quality books in my technical field and areas of personal interest. I also buy books for my son, who was a professional hunter in Africa. That creates a wide diversity of interests!
Rod in Polson, Montana


This 87-year-old book is in SUPERB condition (EXACTLY as you described!). It arrived very securely packaged, and was quickly shipped. I could not be more pleased. Thank you very much for your thoughtful professionalism.
Bob from Kankakee, Illinois
