Comments: "Much of the poem was written before 1700 as a result of conversation with Peter Bayle, but none of it was published until after its author's death more than forty years later...the author must have..realized that his positions, though they were now the main prop of orthodox theology, had become too vulnerable to render effective support to the Church against Lucretian materialism."

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
