I have just received the copy of Mysterious Island by Jules Verne which I ordered previously. The book arrived in the condition in which it was sent and I am very impressed with the condition of the book. I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance and will certainly order again! Billy Dinwoodie, Johannesburg South Africa
