Beautiful edition of this longish novel; should hold up under multiple readings. Arrived quickly and very carefully packaged. I'll definitely look for this seller again; arguably the best of quite a good lot. I don't have any complaints....

Delivery, handling and packaging as well communication are all superior A Plus. Advertised description of the book's condition is over stated/inflated. However, the price of the book is very fair and customer friendly

positive comment by Judith P on May 8, 2015

Condition as described; excellent secure packaging; arrived first of large order; fast email confirmation too. Small thing: upgrade quality of bookmark needed - print is disintegrating, unreadable. But will certainly check their book supply in future!
