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

Thanks, Michael and all at Chessler Books! What a wonderful surprise to walkhome from grocery shopping to find my DVDs had arrived today. Cannotadequately describe the peace I felt nor ensuing deep enjoyment ofviewing Disciples of Gill. Stunning in the footage and music. Seeing my eternalheroes 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; Iam tremendously grateful.  --  T.H.  SC

Please hang on to the books for today, I will race over the border and sort out theaddress this afternoon. I will send you the info this afternoon or evening. Theworst problem with shipping to Canada now is it takes months for the packages toarrive.  --  -- 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 abook 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 thanjust on-line is much more satisfying. I guess if I was simply after the books themselveson-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 afind. Newspaper clipping, note from a friend, ticket to a talk, etc.. . Sometimes this issignificantly more important than the book itself as it creates a context and history. Iconsciously add such items to my books with the next browser/owner in mind. It’s thesebits that are the one-offs that make a find sometimes creating an unexpected turn inthe provenance for the book.  You have earned yourself a privileged position throughyears of work. It must be very satisfying to be contacted by individuals with suchcollections and have the opportunity to talk with owners and get to examine thesetreasures.   I am still drooling over your many recent offers knowing that theyhave probably gone but just seeing many of them in a ‘catalogue’ is fascinatingKeep up thegood work.  --  FR  NZ

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

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

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

Hi Michael! Love your sales!I just came across my stash of your catalogs that goback 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 youhave a terrific weekend.-- J.M. AZ

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