    Mijn feedback is over de levering van het boek van Livingstone, Het boek op zich is fraai, maar het was verpakt in materiaal dat zo uit de stofzuigerzak leek te komen

    Response by seller
    The cartons we use are brand new.
    The bubble-wrap is brand new.
    If we have old wrapping paper that comes with deliveries we use this to secure the books.
    The used material is not defective or in anyway soiled. It is used to stop the books from moving about. The object of the exercise is to make sure the books arrive in good condition. Next time I will wrap them in euros for you!!!!
