Wow - This is amazing - the book arrived in the post this morning! It was quicker for your book to get from New York to New Zealand, than the two books I ordered from Australia at the same time! Many thanks for that - I know it was sent by cheapest post (at my request) but somewhere along the line I got lucky. Love the book by the way - and it arrived here in such perfect condition I could almost think no one has even touched it before... - Anne W.
