Three weeks now and still have not received this book. Very disappointing.

positive comment by William M on Sep 30, 2019

OUTSTANDING transaction! Condition of book better than described, extremely fast shipping, superb packaging, and very reasonable price. Every transaction I have had with this seller has been excellent!

Excellent service

negative comment by Bartle B B on Sep 12, 2019

Skimpy packaging meant that the corners of this hardback book were damaged in transit. I buy about 50 used books online annually.

positive comment by Raymond on Sep 7, 2019

Book looks new. Looks a couple of pages were slightly folded during publishing. Otherwise perfect and new. GREAT VALUE! Thanks.

Arrived on time and was as described

positive comment by Jeffrey P on Aug 12, 2019

Arrived in less than a week, text clean and overall very good condition as described, with slight front cover crease and general wear to be expected for an out of print paperback

positive comment by Carrie F on Aug 10, 2019

Just as described, great price, and shipped fast! Fantastic seller! Thank you!

positive comment by Gijsbert B on Aug 8, 2019

Excellent transaction, recommended seller.

negative comment by David Silvio P on Jul 31, 2019

I've placed this order back in June and have still not received it. I'm going away on vacation next week and I would like to bring this book which I've paid for with me. Please expedite the shipment

positive comment by Jeremy S on Jul 29, 2019

An all around great experience buying from this seller; would recommend

positive comment by Jeffrey P on Jul 29, 2019

Described as very good but looks almost like new aside from remainder marks, arrived in less than a week

negative comment by Tomos R on Jul 26, 2019

Order cancelled.

positive comment by ChristopherJones on Jul 26, 2019

Book arrived promptly. By and large I'm extremely pleased with it - BUT - i) minor problem: Cornell edition, not Faber & Faber as advertised; ii) a plastic Jiffy-style mailing bag (only!) is no proper or serious way to pack a book weighing 3 lb 2 oz .

positive comment by Daniel M on Jul 24, 2019

Fine seller!
