The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it canít be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didnít disappoint. - G.W.
