  40. 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.

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

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

  43. Very good condition, very fast efficient service.

It’s great to meet a bookseller who appreciates that books are precious to the buyer. Many thanks. Good feedback left on Ebay.

  152. the book ordered arrived within one working day. it was well packed and in splendid condition. one could not ask for a better service. in future when I am searching for a particular book my first port of call will be hcbooks online

  153. Thanks for your attentive service and great care for the books being shipped. I was very surprised to have a rather bulky 40 volume set appear at my mailbox only 3 days later, 4000 miles away.

  154. 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.

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

  156. This is the second time that I purchased some books from Heron Publications. Charles Fedorowicz’s service was again compliant and supreme!! For future purchases I am definitely looking forward to working with him again!!

    THANKS, CHARLES, FOR SUCH EXCELLENT SERVICES!!

  157. I am very pleased with your speedy, efficient service and delighted with the books. They were as described and beautifully packed. Prior to purchase, all my enquiries were dealt with in a friendly and prompt manner. I would highly recommend your company to anyone looking for difficult to come by old editions of quality books. Thank-you so much for your care in assisting me with this order. I hope to deal with you again in the future.

    Helen

    Alex

  163. 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.

  164. Received my Maugham yesterday, safe and sound.
    Excellent service or, as we say in Dutch, hij was voor zijn roodkoperen.

  167. 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.

  168. 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.

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

  170. 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.

  171. An ideal transaction on a very carefully described book (“Our Mutual Friend” by Dickens in a pristine 1st printing). Communications were courteous and timely. I look forward to future purchases!

  172. Great value books with a courteous and efficent service.

  173. 10 volume collection of Heron books posted to Thailand arrived in less than a week. All books in perfect condition. I highly recommend this excellent seller.

  174. Purchased a first edition of Charles Dickens’ The Life of Our Lord. Book arrived from overseas in time suggested. Item is beautifully cared for and in very good condition. I will use your store again when the need arises. Thank you for your prompt service and response to my earlier email. Very professional and courteous. P.S. My daughter is thrilled with her acquisition.

    1. Many thanks for your kind comments and for letting me know the book has finally cleared US Customs.

  175. Got my kipling order,good delivery good set of books apart from one with a dodgy spine. But overall no problems.

  179. Wonderful book, was delivered next day. Excellent packaging. Charles is very helpful. I will definitely be bookmarking the site and recommending to people I know. Thank you again charles 🙂

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

  181. A few days ago, after a long, long search for a particular book, I came across http://www.hcbooksonline.com 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.

  182. Thank you for your timely dispatch of a much sought after, less well known book. It arrived in an excellent condition and was exactly as the seller described it.
    I am very pleased with not just the book, but also the high value service.
    Thank you

  183. The book arrived promptly and safely, packaged carefully. It was as honestly described.
    Excellent service indeed! I agree with the other comments that it was a pleasure to discover this web-site and I have no doubt I shall return again and again.
    Heaven on a stick!
    I am very interested in a complete Heron collection of Agatha Christie should you come across one.

    1. Many thanks for your feedback, please keep looking at my website, the Agatha Christie collection is coming soon.

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

  185. I recently ordered The Agatha Christie Thriller Collection 40 Vols to be sent to Switzerland. I was surprised by the prompt delivery, very careful packing and accurate communication as far as the processing of the order was at any moment. Great Service! I can highly recommend to order books through this online shop.

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

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

  188. 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.

    THANKS CHARLES,
    Alex

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

  189. 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!

  190. 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.

  191. 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.

  192. 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 🙂

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

  194. 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?

  195. 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.

  196. 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 😀

  197. 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).

  198. 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.

  199. 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!

  200.

  201. 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.

  202. 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.

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

  204. 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.

  205. 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.

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

  207. 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.

  208. As the customer in Canada , I have also very recently (yesterday) received the Heron 40 Vol. Agatha Christie Thriller Collection from HC Books online.com
    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

  209. 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.

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

  214. I emailed Charles on Sunday about some Agatha Christie books to complete my collection, by Thursday I was opening the parcel. 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.

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

  216. 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…
