I've been buying books from Hamilton for almost thirty years. For what you get the prices can't be beat. All brand new books, at least half are hardcover, for 50-to-70% off retail. They're shipped in sturdy heavy cardboard sleeves that are stapled shut and zip open. Shipping is currently $3.50 PER SHIPMENT, not per book. This extremely low cost of gradually assembling your own personal library is probably why they don't have a big customer service staff to hold your hand or sort out problems (which I've never had in almost thirty years). No credit cards also lets them keep down overhead although that may change some day. They didn't have on-line ordering until about ten years ago. The print catalog makes for good bathroom reading. A little more challenging is the version labeled "New Arrivals" which may run to over fifty pages, with thirty or so books per page, in spectacularly no order whatsoever (no categories or alphabetizing): "Rommel's Afrika Corps" may be sandwiched between "Cats in Quilts" and "Grow Your Own Drugs".
Great business.

I have been ordering books from this bookseller for over 15 years from all over the U.S., and I have never received a damaged book, DVD, or CD. Everything I ordered has been what I requested, and if book was not in stock, they would deliver the books in stock and refund my shipping cost of $3.50. I see that their website is temporary not in use, 1/2013, and I am hoping that they are not going out of business. Their catalogs are amazing.

I have been ordering books from here ever since I saw a little Ad in The Utne Reader in the 1980's .They have a huge variety of catagories. Books usually come in 2 weeks. I love reading the printed catalogue! Then I go on line, make sure the books I want are available and print my order form to mail. The books are always in great shape. Great prices. I have managed to compile a comprehensive art book library over the years thanks to this company . Since the prices are so reasonable, wIhen we order fiction books, we usually donate them after reading. I have recommended this company to many friends and will continue to do so. If you send your order by mail, shipping is only $3.50! .

I have been ordering books from this company since the 1980s. Every time I add alternates if the books I wanted as my first choice are sold out, they send one or more of the alternatives I have listed. I have developed a warm and rewarding relationship with the local librarian at the public library near where I live. I read the books and donate them to the library. The books always arrive in perfect condition in sturdy packaging that is easy and convenient to open. My only irritation remains their absence of any phone number to call. They are strictly mail order but the low price of postage makes their merchandise and service irresistible. I would not buy discount and closeout books from any other merchandiser. I consider myself a customer for life.

Love them! I have ordered books from them off and on for the past 12 years. They are very quick and books arrive in perfect condition. The few times they were out of a book that I ordered, (they are a discount seller and occasionally run out) I have recieved a refund check almost immediately.

I have been ordering from this company on a monthly basis for over 15 years. Their service is excellent and prices are extremely competitive. I like their returns policy; if I am dissatisfied with a book for any reason, I can return it for a refund. This makes it easy for me to order books sight unseen, as I know I can send them back if they don't meet my expectations. Honestly, I hate to buy books anywhere else, because E. R. Hamilton will have them cheaper, and what is easier than buying books from the comfort of your own home? Saves time and gas!

I have purchased nearly 200 books and DVDs from this company and have been extremely pleased with their service. I can't recommend them more highly.

They are fantastic. I have been ordering for over ten yrs with no problem. I even made a monumental error and they were still very professional. I put the wrong check into the envelope. Theirs went someplace else. I informed them of the mix up. I still received my order and I sent out another check. No problem. That is a sign of class and real professionalism.

My second order experience was just as good as the first. Outstanding book selection, prices, and service. I absolutely have HamiltonBook.com bookmarked and know that from now on this Amazon devotee will always compare prices between these two companies before ordering. Since I discovered Hamilton, they've been winning.

Horrible customer service--truly the worst in the industry. They failed to mail 2 books to me and realized it almost a MONTH later. After acknowledging that they'd screwed up, they refused to ship the books via Priority Mail, despite the fact that they were textbooks needed for a class. When I complained, the customer service manager, Frank Burgundy, informed me that their service was truly "impressive," and that, basically, I should be grateful that they usually did their job. He then told me that if I didn't like it, I should take my business (100+ books/year) elsewhere. WOW! Never in my entire life have I had a customer service person tell me to shop with someone else. I hope they're not paying him much.

I have had several problems in the past and have been similarly disrespected when I complained. These people have no clue as to how to treat their customers. Think long and hard before giving them business, because God help you if something goes wrong. I now have to file two claims with my credit card to recover the costs, as the books shipped this late are totally useless.

This place offers discount books that can be purchased over the internet or by mail (through their catalog). They specialize in over stocks and scratch and dent items. All of their merchandise is brand new and offered at a fraction of the cost to purchase in a full service book store. They have added an ability to accept credit cards which makes ordering very convenient and expedites your order. Or..if you want to keep shipping low, mail your order in. It takes a little longer but it guarantees a low flat shipping rate. I've used this place for years and love it.

Shipping costs are very low, which I appreciate and which keeps me coming back to Hamilton.I look forward to many hours of happy reading and purchasing more books.

I've been buying books from Edward R. Hamilton for years. Their catalogue is basically a newspaper with entry after entry of books that are available. They are grouped by 'new arrivals' and then by general theme (history, fiction, sports, etc.). Mostly, they are factory overrurns, but sometimes, they have gently used books -- it's always clearly stated in the catalogue. The books I've bought have consistently been in good condition. There was one that came that was bent during shipping - -they replaced it without any hassle whatsoever.

They have a flat fee for shipping & handling -- it's the lowest rate possible, which means it may take a few days to get the shipment -- but I've never found that to be a problem. ( In fact, I rather prefer it over all the places that just assume you want to spend $20 for next day shipping and don't even give you a less expensive choice.) .
Oh, and they only take checks. No credit cards. That helps keep costs down.
