The book was exactly as described by the seller and the packaging was excellent. It's an early 20th century publication and I was worried about its condition, but I was delighted to realize that even I wouldn't have wrapped it better. The only disadvantage is that it took about 1 month and a half to be delivered (overseas delivery). Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and intend to use the seller again in the future!
