Of course a beautiful book, being a Folio Society issue. What I was especially happy with was the packaging, which was -bubble wrapped book placed inside a plastic sealed bag which was then shipped in the regular thick cardboard envelope. This all meant that my book was perfectly dry and safe even though when the package was brought into the house it was sopping wet. Our mail man had left it sitting outside on a rainy day. It had been raining all day, and our covered porch was steps away. So kudos for the great packaging, I don’t even know what to say about our mailman.
