Book arrived as described and within the ETA expected. Packed in a padded envelope, tracking number was provided by seller promptly after an email request. A++++++++++++++seller.

positive comment by Chris on Jul 10, 2017

Listing ("fine in fine dust jacket") failed to mention pronounced remainder mark. Book arrived 3 weeks after expected date. Book was well-packaged, however, and (aside from remainder mark) was generally as described.

Response from Alibris customer service

Seller shipped on time to our freight forwarding center. Any delay in delivery was then due to the transfer across the international border and not due to the seller's shipping practices.

Paperback, not hard cover, but great shape. Packed well, shipped quickly, good price.

positive comment by Wesley M on Jan 20, 2017

Quite a bargain, considering what other booksellers were charging for copies of lesser condition!

neutral comment by Richard T on Dec 7, 2016

This book was not fine in fine DJ as stated. Both spine ends were banged and wrinkled. There was a raised and rubbed area on the front cover. The jacket was wrinkled at the edges and the top inch of the front was creased.
