Customer Feedback UPDATED 2018

Thanks for your service, Michael! Can't adequately express how much Chessler Books has kept my interest in climbing, mountaineering, and life at a great level. Blessings, and have a wonderful Veteran's day, brother! -- T,H,  SC

Thank you to Mr. Chessler for all his years of service to this industry and for helping me meet Sir Ed before he passed away.   -- S.H.  ID


Thank You Michael - I'm really enjoying each and every one of the books that you are sending to me - and Thank You also for the OUTSTANDING packaging job that you have done with each of my last orders - I greatly appreciate your efforts! With my respect and my very best regards,  -- D.S.  -- CA

Google+    Vanessa O'Brien   Jun 10, 2015  Just want to shout about this amazing  bookstore  chesslerbooks.com … run by Michael Chessler - his inventory is incredible

I have purchased books from this shop on several occasions.  When I have had occasion to discuss my purchases by phone with Mr. Chessler, he has been most knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject and gracious with his time.  My purchases have all been reasonably priced, all have arrived in the condition advertised or better, and all have been well-packed.  His selection is encyclopedic.  I recommend him highly. Yelp 2016


I recently ordered a somewhat obscure Mt Kenya topo map using Chessler Books' online sales (I'm not sure they even have a retail store).  The map shipped and arrived promptly, much more than I can say for the guidebook I ordered from Amazon's marketplace.  They aren't the cheapest place to buy books, but for rare items, like climbing books autographed by the legends of the sport, they've got the corner on the market.  Yelp   2010

I've been collecting mountain and travel books for a long time, and have always found you have a unique product out there in the market.  You'll leave areal legacy Mike with those of us who collected these books. Getting them signed was such a great idea, I know it made it much more personal for me.  -- B.P.Canada 2018

I got the autographed ice axe. Beautiful! Thanks! --  T.D.  VA  2018

Bought a Nice Ed Hillary ice axe from you and it is on my wall. Thanks. -- W.K. Auckland NZ  2018

Michael, I received the last of my recent orders today and just wanted to say thank you...for the great books and also for the kind gift of Mountain LightPostcards...i appreciate it.  I was in Bishop CA this August, quick climb on MtWhitney... but Galen Rowell country... the gift was a pleasant reminder of Rowell's great work and beautiful country.  Thanks.  --MA  ID  2018 

This mail to confirm I have well received my order : no problem, and very fast.Thank you very much. My best wishes for the new year.  -- DK  France  2018

Good to be back! Have missed you for at least 15 years now! Now at 52, I am training to climb high level again, and using these DVDs and such to restoke the fires! Many thanks for still being around. You are the BEST in the world! -- TH WV

Thank you for always being so efficient with our orders and informing us of your inventory! -- GF  Canada

Dear Mike, Many thanks for the two beautiful books which have arrived safely today in fine condition. I'm looking forward to an interesting and inspiring read. I thank you for your continuing excellent service and hope this finds you in good health.  --RG  UK

Dear Michael,  The Young Savages arrived and I am delighted in every way. The book is exactly what I would have chosen if I had any expertise at all in the subject matter.  Thank you for your expert guidance. It is good to know there are still booksellers like you. Sincerely,  --L.B. VT

Thanks as always, Michael. Wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season, and in the New Year. Be well, brother! --TH  SC

Hi Mike,Per our phone conversation on Wednesday you mentioned I should request a fine copy if you have one.Thanks for another great order at very nice prices, and have an excellent holiday. Much appreciated, -- EJ  WA

I just wanted to quickly thank you for HIMALAYAN QUEST : The GermanExpeditions to Siniolchum and Nanga Parbat by Paul Bauer.  Splendid book and one I hadn’t known about. This one stays in my personal library. Thanks again, -- T.M.  CA

Thanks, Michael and all at Chessler Books! What a wonderful surprise to walk home from grocery shopping to find my DVDs had arrived today. Cannot adequately describe the peace I felt nor ensuing deep enjoyment of viewing Disciples of Gill. Stunning in the footage and music. Seeing my eternal heroes of the rock mature with immense dignity has given this aging and broken-hearted climber (lost my lady love to cancer last year) renewed solace. Perfect; I am tremendously grateful.  --  T.H.  SC


Please hang on to the books for today, I will race over the border and sort out the address this afternoon. I will send you the info this afternoon or evening. The worst problem with shipping to Canada now is it takes months for the packages to arrive.  --  -- P.A. Canada


You are the best! Thanks for everything!  --  J.M. AZ


I was extremely interested to get your report on your life, times, and survival as a book seller. Bravo!All the best, Michael. --  E.F. HI


Thanks so much! I had to dig to find this book for the rock that is in my back yard! -- M.H.  CA


These two email from yesterday are exactly why ordering books by email rather than just on-line is much more satisfying. I guess if I was simply after the books themselves on-line would do the job but it’s the little extra bits of info that make the transaction. You mention ephemera. If I see climbing (or related) books in an ‘old’ bookshop I always check to see what’s inside. It’s those little extra bits that make a find. Newspaper clipping, note from a friend, ticket to a talk, etc.. . Sometimes this is significantly more important than the book itself as it creates a context and history. I consciously add such items to my books with the next browser/owner in mind. It’s these bits that are the one-offs that make a find sometimes creating an unexpected turn in the provenance for the book.  You have earned yourself a privileged position through years of work. It must be very satisfying to be contacted by individuals with such collections and have the opportunity to talk with owners and get to examine these treasures.   I am still drooling over your many recent offers knowing that they have probably gone but just seeing many of them in a ‘catalogue’ is fascinating. Keep up the good work.  --  FR  NZ



Thanks, Michael. Even if only in minuscule amounts, I always wish to buy something from your latest offerings.-- E.F.  HI


Great selection (and prices), Michael! best, --  L.K.  NY


Thanks, Michael. Have changed addresses since last ordering. Wonderful pictures on site of absolute legends. Thanks for all you do, brother. You are a true inspiration. Keep up the marvelous work.  -- T.H. SC


Hi Michael! Love your sales!I just came across my stash of your catalogs that go back to the early 1990's (possibly late 1980's)...treasures all! Cheers -- A.Z. CA


Thanks again for everything! Its always a treat getting these packages. I hope you have a terrific weekend.-- J.M. AZ


Media mail is fine. You have some excellent books available (I have them), and your buyers will be so lucky to gain them at such reasonable prices. -- E.F. HI


Hello Mr. Chessler. Thank you very much. The item arrived today and is amazing!My son will absolutely love it! It is a sincere pleasure doing business with you! -- T.P. TN


I was glad to discover that Chessler Books is still going strong, after 32 years! 20 years ago, in 1996, I sold you a whole stack of Mountain and Rock & Ice magazines, copies of which I see you are still offering, bless you!  --  J.R. MD
