Book is in excellent condition for a 1946 printing. Price was unbeatable (the lowest of all the AbeBooks sellers offering this book). It was carefully packaged and received in a short period of time.

Very impressive list of books. I appreciate the great
sevice you provide, thanks!

Zubal has the most competitive prices for several antiquarian and scarce titles. That's something to be welcomed.

You guys are fast and good, reliable and reasonably priced. I am pretty happy with everything, Frank and I live in North Bay, Ontario.
The conditionof your books are always excellent and as described.
Jeff from Cumming, Ga
I am always impressed by Zubal Books
attention to detail and careful descriptions of each book listed. It shows a greater knowledge of and care for their stock and, if I lived in Cleveland, I'd certainly want to work for you. Your greater care in packaging is far higher above the average for other dealers on the internet as well and I'm deeply grateful for such an ongoing commitment to excellence.
Curtis W. in Brooklyn, NY
I have been buying books from Zubal. The books are VERY reasonably priced and the service is very prompt. They are quick in answering questions over mails and in case of any problems they settle the issue immediately. As a book lover far away in Mumbai I am quite pleased to have discovered such a gold mine !!
Krishna G., a Professor of Mathematics, located in Mumbai.
I was very pleased with the book that I ordered from you. I am a bookseller, and only buy books in fine and/or near fine condition, and the book you sent me was fine. Price is an important factor since I need to sell the book, and your price was one that allows me to sell it a a reasonable profit. Since I don't recall the details of the packing and delivery, I simply marked Very Good, though Excellent might have been a good choice. Thank you for a very nice purchase.
Lillian, Santa Monica, CA
The Zubal books employees are quite helpful.
I have been buying from Zubal for quite a long time now and I am quite happy with the products.
Gopala K., Mumbai
Zubal books you are really my bookstore. I believe in you and I trust you to deliver the quality of my books.
M. D.: University of Calgary, Canada
I was very satisfied with the entire experience with
Zubal from the start. The selection was good, books were as described, shipping
was prompt, and the books were safely packed to protect them from damage during
shipping. Keep up the good work!
Mike and the location is Middleborough, MA.
The book came in excellent condition --- no creases, no damaged binder, no written notes, no splotches or spills. Just like I had purchased it off the shelf. The packing and packaging were done in a professional manner.
Tom, Tampa FL
I liked the professional packaging. I order a lot of books and a few get damaged from poor packaging. This was not one of those.
Baragoon from Sydney (Australia)
You're the only actual bookstore I buy from anymore. Sure would love a Washington DC branch to browse in! [Alas that ain't gonna happen till virtual reality gets a LOT better!]
David, Alexandria Va
I was very pleased with the book that I got from Zubal books and will buy from you again !!!!

Roy H., Sydney, Australia
I would like to thank you for the excellent service,
the care you have put into posting the book, which arrived this morning. It
was packaged so that it was really safe during journey and is in excellent
Mia in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Though I'm a bookseller myself, the books I just received from you this week were for myself and I was totally pleased--from the ordering off your own website to the notifications as to posting and arrival times and tracking info. The books were heavy (30 ibs) but were professionally packed and arrived on time and in great condition. great job and I will be ordering with regularity Jeffrey and my location is Irvine, CA
The book was in excellent condition, and at a great price. Way better than buying the book directly from my own school's book store. Delivery took a but longer than I am used to but that is expected as I live in a different country. I emailed your staff and they were very helpful. I am very pleased with the service. Ashton, from Ontario Canada.
The book you sent was a truly outstanding copy of the last edition of this work. Do you by any chance have vol. 2, which are the notes and glosses accompanying the text in vol. 1? In any case, 1000 thanks!
- Gareth Jenkins
We second-hand book buyers appreciate it when the book arrives undamaged after its journey (eg corners not bumped), and in the condition described - telling the buyer if the book is extensively foxed is important, for example. I have purchased several volumes from Zubal, and always found your descriptions to be honest.
- Roger, in Sydney, Australia
Great service from a great book operation - Michael from Shepherdstown, WV
I find Zubal to be a great resource for the very
unique and rare books and publications that I collect.
- Debbie ; Whidbey Island, Washington
I have bought books from Zubal for several years through abebooks.com. You are speedy, communicative, and your product is as described in the listings - thanks!
Jim Albuquerque, NM
Zubal books has more then excelled in my experience as a customer. Their service was above and beyond anything i've experienced. Keep up the good work and thank you.
Book recyclers like yourself are perhaps the greatest source of knowledge in our time. the wisdom of the age viewed from the persectives of a given generation are often lost as social norms change. Books go out of print and out of stock. Too many people think that if a book is not current it has no relevence for today. Even novels were written with different terms of reference 20, 30, . . . years ago.
Thank you for being there to fill this need. Also, many of us would not be able to afford to read if organizations like you were not there.
Margaret - Alberta, Canada
Fantastically rapid service from 'the other side of the pond'. The book is in mint condition and is a very useful addition to my collection of middle english books.
Ian Naylor and I live in Bingley, West Yorkshire, England.
I've been a customer, though surely not one that pops into your mind at once, for probably more that 30 or 40 years, and no way will I end that relationship. You people are excellent at what you do. Could
I change the current marketplace? Don't I just wish ! Could I buy more
books? Not easily, as both money and space are, in my case anyhow, quite
limited. If my words could bring more fire under your sales ovens, you'd need a
team of chefs. Thanks for all you do. I continue to wear my two Zubal
T-shirts happily (though they do show their age - hey, but so do I) !
A. G. M., New Hampshire
The book was in better condition than I had expected it would be and was very securely packed. Other dealers advertised the same book, but yours was the most reassuring description
John in Boston
You are great!!!!
Sergio from Miami, Florida.
I really enjoyed the service and the packaging. Keep up the good work. As a former Clevelander, I am proud of you !
Gerald West Palm Bch, FL
Everything was perfect with the purchase, the book was "as described", the comunication with the staff was perfect and caring.
M.B., BRESCIA, ITALY
Thank you for prompt service. Your prices are competitive and the condition of the book was exactly as advertised.
Martha, Everett, WA.
I have always been impressed with the fact that ZUBA:L packages even inexpensive items with obvious care.
Fantastic value! Loved the sale, picked up some books I'd had my eye on for a long time. Zubal has been a great site for picking up science books for value prices. Joyce, Maine
Thank you Zubal, you are a very trustworthy company! It's sometimes hard buying used books because often the book is in very poor condition & the seller will not care to help...but this does not apply to Zubal & I am very thankful & will continue to order from you!! All the best! Joanne B., Washington
I have bought bought over fifty books from your website over the last year. I am 100% satisfied with your services! The books have always been in excellent condition (even better than expected) and at unbeatable prices. I will keep buying with confidence. Thank you! Patrick, Montréal, Qc
Zubal Books is a fabulous source for the books in which I have an interest. Your service is excellent and you deliver exactly what you advertise. Robert, Syracuse, NY
I was amazed at the care in packing and the speed in delivery. Professional, safe, and secure packaging kept my purchase safe. Zubal Books is definitely on my top list of sellers. - Mike, Rochester, NY
I ordered through Abebooks. I have ordered before from Zubal through Abebooks, and everytime I see Zubal listed as the seller I have a sense of confidence and reliability - a genuinely trusted seller. I don't think you have much room to improve because you are already doing a great job from this customer's point of view - just keep up the same level of service.
(On the "condition of book" item in the survey - your books always arrive in the condition anticipated and as described, so "satisfied", but the survey question is weird - do you mean satisfied with the description and your honesty (excellent) or do you really mean the condition of the books, some of which are quite antique and accurately described as being in shoddy condition?) Posted by Marc.
The prices are very competitive and the selection is great. I am proud to have such a store in Cleveland. I have watched the others close (Kay's, Publix, etc.) but Zubal remains. Jonathan/Pepper Pike, Ohio.
Excellent is the only word I can use here, for about ten years now I am buying books from Zubal and for me this is the best bookshop when it comes to finding rare and specialized books. Your stock of books on physics and chemistry is unique and I shall certainly buy more from you in the future. Gerard, Utrecht, The Netherlands.
I just received my order of the advances in photosynthesis and
respiration vol. 25. The book is beyond my imagination. It is almost
brandnew.Thank you very much and I hope to deal again with you in the
P., Qingdao, China
Zubal ! You're great ! I received the books yesterday Apr 30, 2008, via USPS and Brazilian Postal Service. Those people are much more efficient than UPS and much, much more cheaper. As usual, your package was in fine condition and the books are kind of new even being 55 years old ! Thank you, I'm glad to be your customer.
Diderot Encyclopedia - Dover V2

San Martin, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Dear Mr Zubal,
It's a pleasure to take advantage of the 20-percent off "thank you" offer you emailed to me several days ago. I only recently 'discovered' you while searching via abebooks and was enormously pleased with my first purchase. The book I ordered ("My Own Right Time" by Woodward) arrived in exactly the condition described in your abebooks listing. That in itself may not be so remarkable, but, over the past decade, I've ordered out-of-print technical books from dealers all over North America and Europe, and I have never seen better packaging than yours. Kent R, Gaithersburg MD
Just a word to let you know that Ketterlinus arrived safely yesterday. Many thanks for your service. Just the sort of printing item that I'm interested in!
Yours sincerely, Gavin B.
Just to say that I am delighted with my recent purchase of Wild Sports in The Sudan by F.L. James.
I do not know if you run a system sophisticated enough (mine probably isn't!) to be able to quote me any Big Game Books you have, particularly on Africa, and pre 1955?
If you can, please go ahead!
All Best Wishes,
Hi Zubal Books,
I thought you'd like to know that my package arrived safely today and I'm
very pleased with it. Everything is exactly as I'd anticipated and so I'm a
very satisfied customer. It was good that it was sealed in plastic as the
weather was wet here today and the postie was also careful to place it out
of the rain as best he/she could, and in the end there was no problem that
caused any concern.
I received the book on July 31th.
Book in very good condition (like new).
Thank you very much. Jean, M., France

Thank you once more, and kind regards,
Ellen Gibson-Pelkowski, Ober-Moerlen, Germany
To whom it may concern,
I just received this book today and I want to say THANKS for a
great book. Your description of the condition of the book doesn't
do it justice. This book, I feel, is in excellent shape for its
age and you helped me just about complete all the history books
dealing with the Columbus Police Dept. 1990 is the only one I
need, so if you "run" across one I'd be happy to take it off your
Again, thanks for everything and I have your site book-marked
on my computer for future use.
Thank you very much. I received the book today (so fast!) and it is
magnificent! Thank you again. ---dan w., Brookline MA

Just wanted to let you know that I have recieved the book (yesterday) It is brilliant, just what I wanted!
Thank you so much, if you ever have any more books on this subject (Georgian England landscapes, especially nottinghamshire, but also on the aristocracy of the same period and their houses and parkland)
once again thank you
Just to let you know that the books/journals arrived yesterday, Thursday 26 October 2006, here in Sarasota. Thank you for packing them well and thanks for the unexpected bonus of the Zubal's T-shirt.
If you come across issues of the Philippine Craftsman for Volume I (1912?-1913--I am missing Numbers 1-7), I would always appreciate hearing of them from you.

Thank you so much for this book. It arived at my door safe and sound. The author of this book is my husband's grandfather and I have been looking for it for ages. He wrote another book called "What God hath Wrought" - A.N.Williams. My husband was named after him and his name is Jon Williams Langerak.

I just received today the book. Many thanks.
Alessandro C., Italy
The various Port Series books arrived a few days ago, in great shape and faster than expected. I was looking for some type of feedback mechanism on ABE, but did not find it. I just wanted to let you know that I am a very pleased customer. Thank you again for combine the shipping on my two book orders. It was appreciated.
The book was indeed at the local PO. They simply neglected to put a notification slip in my PO box. Thanks so much for the quick response and good service.
Glad to report book arrived safe and sound; pleasure to do business with you.
Niall O., Cork, Ireland
It is a highly recommendable book -together with the first volume- for further graduates or senior undergraduates as developing the mathematical essence of topics very accurately on a field -applied maths- so ready to 'disrupt' the feel of mathematics -since dealing with 'time' and so
on-. It gives a flavour of how maths are not subject to fashion at all but notations mostly, and keeps fairly updated for research reference today as often quoted yet concerning advanced basics

Hello, dear ZUBAL Books team,

I received the book today well package via priority mail. Thank so so much.I have booked several books from you through different channels.Everything is good and you are very professional. China
I've bought books from your store for several times.
Each buying is an interesting and wonderful experience.
The internet makes us closer than ever.
You can imagine, how should these happen were there no internet.
I thanks for your staff's professional job.
Hope I could be in your store some day and have a cup of tea, or maybe coffee.
You can post anything I write, wrote you.
With full name, surely no problem!
To be your costomer is my honour.
Thanks so much Jean for all your help with this matter. It's really
scary for us, good thing my husband is so anal about checking our
statement frequently. I'm glad the guy didn't get his books from you.
It seems that it would not be worth the risk for such small orders but
maybe that way people can continue to use other's cards without the owner
noticing. Either way we appreciate your prompt and courteous service!
And it has arrived! Thank you so much for sending this book so promptly.
Marjorie, Northampton, MA
Yes thank you I have received the Book in good condition.

Thank you so very much for sending the 1821 edition of Archibald Robbins'
Journal. I have been looking for this book for sometime and was delighted
to receive such a nice copy at a very reasonable price. I appreciate that
the book was packaged securely as it arrived quickly and undamaged.
All the best -John Alkek, Portland, OR
I received the book with some weeks later, but the book in perfect state, and with the code bar that you sent me, I could track better the shipment. A thing that I note is that you sold me a used book but really it seems as new, I think no one used it because isn’t with pencil marks, or some wear in tah pages, nothing, I want to thank you for your help and your very good service, I hope buy other books to you in the future.
