I wanted you to know that my book arrived in about 3 days in perfect condition. I am not an expert in grading book conditions, but to call this book very good with very good dust jacket is a true understatement. This book is pristine and immaculate. The book was wrapped in tissue, then wrapped in corrugated stuff and then wrapped in brown wrapping paper. I buy a lot of books on line and have never received a book so carefully prepared for shipping. It is refreshing to get such professional attention and I hope I can find more books at your place. - Daniel
