very quick delivery and very well packed.
Books arrived in perfect condition, well protected. Fast handling and delivery ! Thanks !
thank you, all good! I didn't have to pay additional customs taxes as from other sellers from France and Netherlands!
Book arrived quickly and well packaged BUT fold-out coloured map is missing despite this being in the 'item description'. I feel seller has been misleading by not saying this and am annoyed!I can't understand why you are annoyed?
I really have no idea about any fold-out map within the books. I have only mentioned in the 'item description' (coloured map, showing the region of his labours) and this map is existed in the book. This is an excellent item, and no need for me to mislead any buyer.
Excellent envoi, de beaux ouvrages.
Je suis ravi.
