  31. The Primo Levi book arrived promptly and was as good in condition as I had hoped it would be. I now know where to start when I want to complete my Folio Dickens collection. Thank you.

  32. I just wanted to leave this feedback as Andrew and Charles have been extremely helpful. I was only looking for information about the books I had and thought that maybe they might want to purchase them. I sent an email with pictures attached and they came back to me very quickly and made me an offer dependant on the condition when they saw them. I accepted their offer and the following day the money was in my account. The whole process took less than a week. I would recommend this company to everyone, and if ever I am looking for a specific book, this is the first place I will start.

  33. ‘Thank you so much for such a prompt service. The folio book has arrived and is as new – fantastic condition. Your price of sale beat all other competitors by some margin for the book quality. I will be buying from you again.’

  34. Very impressed with the service I received from you. I was missing four books from the Dickens Collection. You told me you had them and sent them to me promptly. Thank you.

  35. Received book today 22/1/22 within two days of placing order. Book as described. Very happy with your excellent service

  36. Received my full set of Thomas Hardy books and am very happy with them. Really well packed too, which is always good for peace of mind. Thank you and would recommended to friends without hesitation.

  37. The book has arrived today – thank-you! First class service and I will certainly bear you in mind for future similar purchases.

  38. I am completely impressed with HCBOOKS online. I ordered a book set on Tuesday, November 16th and they were delivered to my Indiana address on Friday, November 19th. It blew me away how quickly the set was delivered. Also, the books are in beautiful condition. I wholeheartedly recommend this excellent business.

  39. Just received Tales of the unexpected by Roald Dahl, Folio Society 2001. Pristine condition, lovely cover, great illustrations. Arrived promptly, website really easy to use, the book will make a fantastic gift. Definitely recommend.

  40. Thank you for my lovely book which arrived today. It’s in great condition, just as described and had been well packaged. Now that I’ve discovered it, I’ll certainly be using this company again.
    Many thanks

  41. I’m not going to lie I’m sat here in my pants and dressing gown in absolute shock ! I ordered a collection of Raymond Chandler yesterday and less than 24 hours later the books are sat in my lap.
    Great turnaround and super fast delivery. I definitely recommend and have already told my sister who is busy looking through to see what titles you have in stock.

  42. Today the package arrived. I would like to thank you for the quick service and the way you carefully packed the book. I am sure my daughter will be extatic to receive this present for her birthday. She is an english literature student and loves to read these kind of books.

  43. I received my four volumes promptly and as described – great experience and good to know you exist. Some of these desired Folio books are hard to find and you have a great inventory. Many Thanks!

  44. I couldn’t believe how fast my book arrived…and I’m in Australia! Beautifully packed and a simply beautiful copy of A Brave New World. Thank you so much 😊

  45. Very impressed with HCBOOKS!! I ordered a copy of Main Street by Sinclair Lewis on a Saturday afternoon and it arrived brilliantly packaged on the following Tuesday morning! I was so happy to find this beautiful copy as I bought it as a gift, and was really struggling to find a nice hardback edition elsewhere online – so this is definitely the right place for harder-to-find books . Will certainly be ordering from this website again :)

  46. Books arrived safely and securely. They were also in the condition as described on the website (which was almost as new). Service from ordering through to delivery by Royal Mail (so much better than the likes of Hermes, Yodel, etc, etc) was first class and very prompt. Would recommend HCBooks without hesitation.

  47. My copy of A tale of Two Cities arrived today in excellent condition and complete with all pages. I was struck by the thought of how well the Heron books have weathered the years, it being 50 years since publication.

  48. Just to express my appreciation of the very impressive service I received from you in purchasing “Villette”. Having had difficulties with the payment online yesterday morning, I had planned to phone you at 9.00 when you opened but you noticed my purchase was incomplete and phoned me at 8.55 to offer assistance and most kindly took my order over the phone which made things much easier. Then, to my amazement, not 24 hours later and when I had not expected to see it for several days, my purchase was delivered to me, very well packaged and in beautifully pristine condition for an old book. It is a long time since I have received such excellent service, offered in so friendly and helpful a manner, let alone such swift delivery so thank you very much indeed. I shall not hesitate to recommend you and shall certainly return for further purchases.

  49. I received my book promptly as promised. Within two days of placing my order.
    In superb condition as described.
    Pleasant and helpful bookseller, I will use you again and certainly recommend you to others.
    Thank you.

  50. I ordered a Folio Society edition of Aesop’s Fables and it was delivered two days later, well wrapped and in perfect condition. Excellent service!

  51. Good morning, I wanted to compliment you on your service. You telephoned me last week in quick response to an email I sent you saying I was having difficulty placing an order. The book arrived the very next day – someone must have raced off to the post office! Today I received your receipt for the book on Bourbon Kings. Thank you for such an efficient and clear response.

  52. I had been searching for a particular Folio series and was delighted to find it here at a reasonable price. Delivery to Australia (!) was prompt and affordable, and the books arrived in the exact condition described and excellently packaged.

    Will definitely check this site again if I need a difficult-to-find book. Thanks!

  53. Once again, first class. Lovely books, great value, and expertly packaged. Thanks

  54. My books arrived today in good order – I am very impressed with both the quality of the books I received and the packing and shipping.

  55. I have been ordering from HCBOOKS for a few months now. Must say they are the best and most reliable online service I have come across. Excellent service and excellent delivery times to the UAE!

  56. Thank you for excellent high quality service. My book arrived very quickly and was packed with great care. I’m happy I found this edition here and will enjoy reading it again. I would have no hesitation in recommending hcbooks and will buy from you again.

  57. Hello Charles I received my books today and I’m very happy with them, all in excellent condition as usual. Thank you for your fast efficient service.

  59. My order arrived today, very well packed and in perfect condition. Many thanks

  60. Just to say thank you for the wonderful Folio Society set of Bronte books from 1991 that arrived today. They are a present for our granddaughter who we took to the Bronte Museum as she started her second year at Lancaster Uni in 2019; she is now about to graduate and then goes on to do her Masters next year. As I opened them I thought that I must have been the first person ever to see inside of them. They have never been read and are pristine. Many thanks

  61. Just to say that my husband is very pleased with his recent purchase. Professional and friendly service, well packaged and speedily delivered to us within two days of placing the order. Thank you very much and we will buy again from you in the future.

  64. My first order and am absolutely delighted – the book is exactly as described ‘mint condition’. Delivery to the UAE really fast . Great service!

  65. Charles, thank you so much for the set of books and the speed of delivery (24 hours from ordering). I haven’t seen them myself yet as they went direct to my sister but she is ever so pleased with her birthday present and she writes
    “There are 23 hard back books all in very good order and wrapped carefully with crinkled plastic paper. They look good and I will keep them in the box and take them out one by one to read.”

  66. I bought the Works Of Alfred Lord Tennyson Poet Laureate Macmillan 1892. And it is the best thing I have ever bought. It’s a beautiful book and I’m so happy I bought it !

  67. Thank you. Very kind of you. Looking forward to another wonderful group of books. With COVID, we’ve been spending our book budget with you folks at HC Books. Such superb quality and exceptional service. We appreciate dealing with such a superb bookseller.

  68. Just to let you know that I received my 16 volume Folio Charles Dickens collection on Wednesday and I am very happy with it. Thank you for your quick and efficient service. I will keep an eye out for any further books to add to my classic collection in the future.

  69. We received our books today , very pleased with the books , speed of delivery and secure packaging . The overall service was very professional and we are extremely satisfied . Thank you very much .

  70. Have ordered twice now, multiple selection of Folio books. The books were in perfect condition, better than described. A bit bewildered as to how you can ship the books to the US so quickly!! In both cases, received the books within 2 days. Thank you for your superb service and your beautiful books. You’re a treasure.

  71. I ordered 3 books on Saturday which have arrived within 3 days in excellent condition as as described on the website. I am very satisfied with my purchase and the transaction and delivery and will be back to buy again.

  72. Just to let you know that your firmly packaged parcel just arrived, well packed to foil our postal delivery system! Of course I have come to expect nothing less from you, never-the-less, I am grateful.

  73. Thank you for this morning’s delivery. Very happy with my purchase.

  75. Went above and beyond to make sure that I got the books that I wanted. Really happy with my books and the service. Looking forward to buying from you again soon.

  76. Received the books today – one day ahead of schedule – UPS are obviously much more reliable than Fastway Couriers ! Books are in lovely order as you described – almost like new !
    Thank you !

  77. Hours in A Library by Leslie Stephen (3 vols, Folio Society 1991) just arrived in pristine condition. Obviously volumes had never been out of the slipcase since printing. In fact it took twenty minutes to extract the volumes without damage they were so tightly packed. I am incredibly well pleased!

  78. Package arrived well. Thanks for the fast and smooth service.

  79. Thank you very much for sending “Chartres” by Colin Ward.

    I shall certainly enquire of you again when looking for hard-to-find books.

  80. My book arrived today in lovely condition, quickly and securely.
    Thank you very much, I will consider you again.

  81. I felt compelled to sing the praises of HC Books online. I ordered a pretty difficult to obtain book of EM Forster’s A Room with a View (Guild) to replace one I gave away as a gift decades ago. After searching extensively, to no avail, I found it here, and for an inexpensive price. I also bought 3 other volumes of HG Wells, Rilke and Poe. They arrived the very next day, superbly packaged, and in pristine condition.
    I shall certainly bookmark their website and peruse their stock on a regular basis in future. Many thanks!

  82. First time using hcbooks online for a copy of a book I struggled to find elsewhere. Such a lovely binded copy rather than the usual paperbacks from Amazon, my mother in law is going to love it. Superfast postage too and worth the extra carriage charge to be delivered by decent courier.

  83. Huxley arrived sooner than most domestic orders from America, as always, and without harm.
    Thank you for your exceptional offerings and service.

  84. Unbelievable, the book has already arrived here in the USA. Just wanted to let you know. Thank you very much. [Ordered 29/9/20 Delivered 01/10/20]

  85. Excellent in every way – perfection!

  86. Excellent service – the books I ordered arrived promptly and were exactly as described. I will certainly order from HC Books again. Thank you Charles.

  87. I have just received the ‘Prose of John Donne’ and it is in excellent condition and delivered very promptly within a matter of days.
    This is the first time I have used HCBOOKSonline and from this experience would recommend their service unreservedly.
    They have a wonderful stock of Folio Editions, very well presented and an easy to navigate web-site. I will definitely be using them again.

I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and the service I received!

Living in Ireland, I was expecting some delay but today, five working days later, I was delighted to receive the novels. I am more than pleased with both the quality of the books (which was exactly as described) and the whole service, which was first class. A special word of thanks for the great communication. I would have no hesitation in ordering again from this website.

  132. I am delighted with the books. Thanks very much. The outer box had one corner bashed in where it had been thrown and bounced, being rather heavy. Fortunately the inner packing absorbed the blow and the books were unscathed. Thank you again.

  179. I purchased many Heron books bound by Hazell Watson and Viney Ltd. in the 70’s to read later.
    I have just got around to reading two of them, Madam Bovary and Notre Dame. Both these books have cracked at the spine where the outside plastic joins the book cover. Although they have only been read once and very carefully, it does seem a shame that although the paper in wood-free the plastic covers are such a terrible quality and do not last one reading. Perhaps the plastic suffers from age hardening.

    1. Yes, sadly this can happen to some books from this publisher. I have mentioned this in the Heron Books listings in my blog as it is something to look out for when purchasing pre-owned Heron Books.

  180. Better than described. Would deal with this seller again

  181. Superb condition and quick delivery, as always with this seller. Recommended.

  293. I have recently purchased Pamela, Vol 1 & 2, by Samuel Richardson. Although the total cost was a bit pricey (and the credit card company even had the audacity to charge a “Foreign Transaction Fee”), the final cost of $36.46 was worth it. The volumes are in excellent condition. I was wondering, are there any copies of the original publication available?

    1. Many thanks for your purchase, I will add your request to my wants list and let you know when I find a copy.

  294. Excellent service, ordered on Tuesday, arrived today, Thursday. Excellently packaged and just what I wanted. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, it is always good to know that Canada Mail are delivering again.

  302. I ordered the Dickens collection yesterday and it arrived today which is excellent as it came from the main land to Northern Ireland.

A pleasure to deal with.

  303. Received my Maugham yesterday, safe and sound.

  306. I ordered some books from this website, having come across it through eBay.
    There were some problems with the delivery going to the wrong address, which Charles was quick to rectify in a courteous, efficient manner.
    I shall definitely be a regular visitor in future.
    Many thanks.

  307. Thank you for your excellent service.
    I had this book as a child and loved the stories and the illustrations. I have been looking for a copy for years but I couldn’t remember the author or of course the publisher. I have visited every book shop wherever I have visited. Tried to track it down on line, but until I saw yours, I had almost given up. Of course now I know the illustrator and publisher there are quite a few on line references to it
    I am so happy to turn the pages again and remember the magic and escapism that this book brought to a pretty impoverished child just after the last war. We didn’t have many toys so books and the Somerset countryside were my world.
    Thank you for helping an elderly Lady re-live that simple wonder in this mad electronic world.

  308. Prompt and efficient service. Seller was responsive and most helpful.

  309. On a whim yesterday, quite late in the afternoon, I ordered a book from Charles and was most impressed to receive it today, beautifully packed for the post and exactly as described. I am most impressed by this efficient service and will certainly try to use it again.

My daughter is thrilled with her acquisition.

  319. Just received the R.L.Stevenson collection. Wonderful books. a service, as usual second to none.

  320. A few days ago, after a long, long search for a particular book, I came across and gave it a whirl. To my utter amazement there it was. I immediately phoned the owner, Charles, and had an extremely pleasant chat with him, and indeed, he informed me he had the book. A few exchanged details and the very next day the book arrived. In a world full of daily bad news and cause to gripe and moan about things that constantly go wrong, Charles and his hcbooksonline are the long longed for breath of fresh air.
    I have no doubt I shall be trawling through his pages in the hope I’ll be phoning him again. Charles, thank you so much for the most utterly wonderful service and of course, my lovely book. Wishing you and your friends and colleagues all the very best, Maurice Pledger.

    1. Many thanks for your lovely comments.

  323. Very pleased with the book(s). five star rating, for quality,
    speed of service, and perception of customer needs.

I can highly recommend to order books through this online shop.

  325. A pleasure to deal with – wish I could afford EVERYTHING!

  326. Ordered book (The Ruin of Sir Walter Scott) midday. Delivered following morning. Good service.

  327. Just recently I received a book that was hard to get, namely “When the Lion feeds” provided by EDITO-SERVICE of the Wilbur Smith collection [at the time they published only a certain amount of his books. Edito-Service published other works by other authors as well]. A few times I’ve searched for this publication over the internet to no avail. Thanks to Charles & HCBooks he made it available and his response and service was quite expeditious. He stated accurately that the book was in very good condition,and his replies were honest: I’m very very pleased about the book and was not deceived by it’s condition, in fact I was more than pleased by it’s condition. If ever there are other special publications that I would like to obtain but can’t,then I know whom to contact.


    1. Glad to help Alex, many thanks for your order. Charles

  328. Love the website and the invitation to email with a specific book request – but darned if I can find an email contact… this is the best I can do! I’m looking for just Vol. I of Pickwick Papers Heron Centennial Edition. Thank you!

  329. Recently I bought a set of books written by Winston Churchll, the history of the english speaking people, chartwell edition via ebay.

    I received the books quickly and they are in very good condition. I am very happy with this purchase.

  330. I got exactly what I wanted – the complete Short Stories of W. Somerset Maugham – and it wasn’t easy. Between my clumsiness with numbers when trying to fill out the purchase forms, and the bull-headedness of my credit card company that required three attempts to clear the purchase, Charles was patient and helpful every step of the way. Now I’ve got my treasure out here in the Mohave Desert. I so appreciate the time and effort it took for the set to get here.

  331. Sooooo excited to receive the amazing copies of Pride and Prejudice and two of Shakespeare’s plays. The prompt arrival (to Australia!!) and the careful packaging have greatly impressed me. Can’t tell you how excited I was when these packages arrived. Prices also really good. My new favourite on-line store :)

  332. Excellent service, polite and reliable. Books arrived very well wrapped. Goes to a lot of trouble to satisfy customers.

  333. I have to agree with other posts – your service is excellent in every respect: goods as described, very prompt dispatch, impeccably packed. What more could one ask?

  334. Hi would love to commend you on your service. From initial contact to receiving my books was excellent. Polite, fast, reliable, and prompt. Could not ask for more. Thank you.

  335. i just purchased the 12 volume set of books written by winston churchill during his time as prime minister in the war. this volume came exceptionally well packaged so there was no way they could be damaged. the seller was completely honest about the condition of the books which do display some VERY SMALL signs of wear and tear which is expected. a lovely volume which i will definitely enjoy reading and i definitely recommend them :D

  336. I was most impressed by the excellent service. The set of books was very reasonably priced (with postage included), the packing protected them very well, and they arrived with startling promptitude, delivered by a friendly courier. Altogether a most pleasant experience (unlike some online purchases I could mention).

  337. I was trying to find a good home for a set of books and for them to be purchased at a reasonable price. I found just the right home with Charles. Selling my books to Charles was a pleasure – he is knowledgeable, polite and very efficient.

    Totally recommend doing business with Charles – I certainly would not hesitate to do so again.

  338. I am very pleased. Apart from obtaining a set of elusive French books I had been trying to find for some time, I was delighted to obtain them at such a reasonable price, in a good condition, making allowance for their age, and delivered so promptly. I will be browsing again!

  339. Charles&Hc books are reliable,efficient&suppliers of goodquality books!Thanku for sorting out my Dickens Editions that I had been after for so long.This is one site that I would recommend to anyone whose interested in literature.They aim to please&thats exactly what they do.Also,the books were packaged so well it was an impossibility for them to be damaged in transit,very reassuring. Fair prices&alove&respect for the written word&the glorious book,that’ll do for me.

  340. Books arrived in fine condition. What an interesting packaging method so the Post Office can’t bash the corners. Thank you for all your efforts in finding these volumes for me. They are in fine condition to match my set and look great in their new home. Your service is indeed excellent and your communications photographic descriptions great. Thoroughly recommend your company to others. What a pity we have to pay the post office such a high price. Your price was fine but theirs was exhorbitant.

  341. Excellent service. The book arrived as agreed and communications on progress and payment was timely, accurate and efficient. I also really like the website itself. Very informative and thorough. A very professional set up.

  342. My book arrived as described & in excellent condition. Very pleased. Thanks.

  343. I’ve really appreciated everything about my purchase.From the early communications,to the final act of purhase everything has been excellent: book’s description accurate to the details,prompt answers to whatever questions I’ve put about,immediate posting with very surprinsingly low cost and arrival in a very short period of time .A bookseller to be vividly recommended whose web site is bound to suffer my many visits.

  344. Excellent service! No sooner had I ordered than the book had arrived. Congratulations to you and the Post Office, and in making a comment have discovered bibliophile bliss in your web site.

  345. Excellent service from start to finish! I agree with all the comments re packaging etc.

  346. The book arrived within 48 hours of ordering and was exactly as described. The packaging was excellent, so the book was in perfect condition. I continue to be delighted with the selection and service of HC Books Online.

  347. As the customer in Canada , I have also very recently (yesterday) received the Heron 40 Vol. Agatha Christie Thriller Collection from HC Books
    The books were packed in the same careful way as described above , and the seller’s description of the books was almost correct , in VG condition he stated – I would rather say in MINT or nearly mint condition , so I am very happy with the purchase indeed…
    Charles is obviously a very reliable dealer who loves books and care much about his customers. I can say this for certain because when there occurred a minor problem with the norwegian carrier (WHICH WAS ENTIRELY MY OWN STUPID FAULT!) , with Charles’ great help and outstanding service – minded attitude it was rather quickly solved , and very soon the books were delivered straight to my door…
    As we say in norwegian : ‘Tusen takk skal du ha , Charles’! .. I will surely enjoy the wonderful books…
    Best regards , Bjorn

  348. I recently received the beautiful 40-volume collection of Agatha Christie mystrery novels. I am very pleased with both the quality of the books and the speed of delivery. The order was shipped on a Monday from UK and received in our small, remote, northern town in British Columbia, Canada, on the Thursday. That is amazing service. I asked for the books to be packaged well and they were. Every book or pair of books individually wrapped in bubble wrap and the carton was securely sealed. Thank you so much for such excellent service. I will not hesitate to order from HCBOOKS online again.

  349. Swift and professional, book just as described, which was immaculate and as new. Perfect, many thanks!

The responses to my emails were always prompt and the books arrived very well packaged and in wonderful condition and at a very good price. Altogether a superb service.
    I will certainly use this company again and recommend it to my friends.

  354. My order just arrived, (Dickens, Christmas stories 2 vols). Beautiful books in first class condition. Packing was excellent. Many thanks for a great service.

  355. And so…I have just ordered 2 more books from HC BOOKS!They were waiting for me when I came back from a rambling holiday in Brittany: I waited till last night to open the carefully wrapped parcel as I wanted to get rid of the coming-back-from-a holiday-chores first and be fully settled to enjoy the first glance in front of a log fire!
    N°1 is a very good edition of Robinson Crusoe that was published in 1841: although the pattern on the cover is a bit faded and the binding had to be strengthened, the book is in good condition and the illustrations after Grandville are just great!
    N°2 is a late 19th century copy of the Vicar of Wakefield: It is in very good condition and the leafy pattern on the cover is beautiful!
    I look forward to reading these two beautifully illustrated books once I have finished reading my current paperback (Toast by Nigel Slate).

    Thank you to HC BOOKS for being such a reliable company! I have this feeling I might become a regular customer…

  356. Have just purchased “THE BUCHANAN PORTFOLIO OF DICKENS CHARACTERS” absolutely over the moon with it – service all round was impeccable and communication second to none – will definitely do business again.
