I'm writing to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for your very professional and awesome packaging job. It's so nice to know that some people do care when packaging vintage and antique books for their customers (I say this because I've had some bad experiences recently with some other book dealers who did a miserable job of packaging a book from 1824). Best, -V.W.
