Dear Argosy, the book has already arrived well in (old) Amsterdam! It's indeed a very nice piece. Many thanks & best regards to New York.
Thanks so much for the great job you did in protecting the book I bought from you! Poor shipping practices among the high volume sellers on abebooks.com is a major issue for me as a book lover, so I've been trying to avoid dealing with the ones I can't trust. It's great to see a seller treat books with respect!
