Dear Gillian,

I love the books. Thank you so much. They were very well wrapped Thank you also for the postage refund. That was very kind of you .

Warm regards,



Hello Gillian.

Thank you very much for the recent order I made for lovely, lovely books from your Stray Dog.  It is a real treat to find such books; I wasn’t even aware I needed to buy them!

The first edition of R and C Berndt’s The First Australians is as old as I am; they were my lecturers at UWA in the 1980s when I studied several units of Anthropology.  I realised at the time I was fortunate to have such people as my lecturers; they were very much at the forefront of the modern studies of Aboriginal Anthropology in Australia. 

The Charles Mountford’s Albert Namatjira book is gorgeous.  To have so many prints of Albert Namatjira’s art all together is a delight. 

I am looking forward to going through the Virginia Woolf collection of stories and articles.

Again, thank you  so much for having such gorgeous books, and for their safe transit to me.

Ciao, Sally

Carlotti arrived today. You guys are great and totally professional.

Hi Gillian,

The books have arrived safe and sound.  Full marks to whoever did the packaging … they were very thoroughly wrapped and packaged!  Many thanks also for including the extra catalogue on ‘Old Masters – New Visions’ from the National Gallery.  The prints included in this one are excellent and much appreciated.

Thanks again Gillian for your prompt and reliable customer service.  I will certainly come to you first the next time I’m looking for art books and catalogues!

Kind regards,

Dear Gillian, 

Thank you for sending "Nature through the microscope..." it arrived in good shape.  I taught microscopy from 1952 until I retired in'88, but this a classic I missed.

Hi Gillian

I bought a book a little while ago from you, 'The Gold, The Blue: A History of Lowther Hall.'

Thank you very much it is a very interesting read and has significance as it is where I work and where my daughter attends.

I have a love of history and enjoyed learning of the past happenings at Lowther.

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Amanda [South Australia]


Hi Gillian,

Just a short note to say I received today the book Everyman for Himself, for which I thank you for your promptness and what an excellent copy it is.

A little bit of trivia for you as I’m sure you don’t get too much of this happening to your sales. The author, in fact is my father, so I am always excited when I locate a copy of his work.

Again thank you, Mark.

 Hello Gillian,

A note to let you know that the book and the postal rebate have arrived. Very pleased with both! Appreciate your assistance with this.

Kind regards,

Dear Gillian

Thank you for your prompt dispatch of the book on the history of the Ghan Railway by Fuller. I appreciate the careful and speedy delivery: from placing the order over the internet to my letter box in Kabul, Afghanistan in less than a week. The book arrived in “as-new” condition, for which I am also grateful.

Kind regards,

Paul L


I can say that I was very impressed with the speed of delivery of the book (Ambrose: Eisenhower, The President). It was as described and I was very happy with my purchase. My only comment is that, if anything, it was over packaged! – it is probably not necessary to spend so much of your time on the task.

I am happy to say that it exceeded my expectations – and it taught me where Balnarring is.

Regards, Stephen Archer

 Hi Gillian,

Just wanted to let you know that the book did arrive safely yesterday – thank you! It is very beautiful, and we have all been ooh-ing and ah-ing over it, and are very excited to be presenting it to our lovely colleague tomorrow.

Thank you again for your wonderful service and assistance!

 Hi Gillian,

Thanks ever so much for the two aero-modelling books received OK today.

Very impressed with the way the books were wrapped for shipping!

They are two books that I enjoyed from my teenage years ( a long time ago now) when actively mucking about with model aircraft in Bendigo. Have often thought about the two books and saw them on your site. Will have quite some pleasure reading them again.

Thanks for your prompt service – the purchase experience, the quality of the books and the promptness were impressive and can only encourage further searches and transactions. The experience is all good.


Hi Gillian,

Thanks for the Liberace book!

The inscription and note make it even better.

Much appreciated.

Regards, Paul [New York]

Thanks very much. Hope to do business again.

Happy thanks.

I often browsed Gillian’s excellent bookstore in Port Melbourne, and was sad when it disappeared.

I was delighted to rediscover it online on Wednesday night, immediately ordered a book, and had the book in my hands on Friday afternoon, competitively priced, well packed, and as described.

I can heartily recommend this excellent service,

Peter E.

Just received the book – looks great. Thanks for the very prompt mailing!

Cheers Peta

Will definitely contact you again, many thanks.

I’ve just received the book “Tales of Enchantment” from you. I’m so pleased. It was a book I had as a child although I’m pretty sure it belonged to my older sister. I have been looking for this book for a very long time. I didn’t know the title but I remembered the story about the Wattle and the Waratah and it was only when I read the description of the book that I thought maybe it could be the one.

And it was!

Many thanks once again,


Hi Gillian,

I received “Captivity Captive” today. It is a fine edition and I am very pleased with it.

Thanks very much for your help

All the best
