    Livres bien reçus. Conformes au descriptif. C'est tout de même dommage que les frais d'envoi soient aussi élevés, excessivement dans ce cas je pense. Le montant de ces frais sont souvent un frein.

    Mijn excuses, tot uw update heb ik geen bericht ontvangen. Het boek is zoals op de foto's te zien is duidelijk de eerste druk uit 1912, en geen herdruk. De eerste trade edition heeft 8 plates en geen 24 plates dat is deluxe edition (en de foto's geven duidelijk aan dat het geen deluxe edition is), dus dat was een type fout.

    Verzendkosten bij kavel waren € 12. In plaats die te gebruiken voor aangetekende verzending, spendeerde verkoper slechts € 6,95 aan verzendkosten, en stak de resterende 5 Euro in eigen zak.
