Hello, I just received a book from you …I just wanted to say I wish every bookseller took lessons from you in how to package a book. There's nothing bulky about your package, there's no excess padding, yet the book is so carefully wrapped I imagine you never get a complaint about the slightest bump. I couldn't be more pleased.

Books can be returned for a full refund if found not to be as described, please contact us within 2 weeks of receipt.
Both books arrived safely thanks to your expert work. As these books are both very heavy, they could have easily been damaged in shipping. I have never received any books that were so carefully wrapped and boxed.
