    Not a good experience as I had to pay a 60€ shipping charge, the most expensive one I've ever paid. In addition, when I received the package I had to pay another 7,33€.

    Response by seller
    You happen to live on an Island and that itself incurs additional
    shipping. Also you are liable to customs oversight and as a resident
    you should have been aware of this. If you bothered to check the additional shipping cost reference stated by Catawiki on the listing you would have been aware of them.
    Please don't blame me for the EU customs regulations or your inability
    to read an auction submission properly.

    Very happy with the with care packed books which arrived today.
    However the books where in a worser condition as expected which wasn't shown at the pictures when sold. This was disappointing.
