I buy a lot of books. I’m not proud that many purchases come from Amazon. Amazon shoved expensive books in boxes with no care or protection. I nervously take the book out and instantly see the damage. So much disregard is so disappointing and smacks of speed over care. I received this book from American Nautical Services. carefully opened the box, I looked inside. It seemed to be packaged with care. As I slid the book out with its ample protection. Unwrapping it, I was excited. It was in perfect condition. Thank you for caring!
