Every time I order books from Liber AL I can always rest assured that my books will be well packaged to protect them during shipping from the UK to the USA. These people even wrap the entire box itself with strong tape. Seriously, they wrap the books in cellophane, then wrap them in cardboard book folders. Then, yes more, they add other padding for protection inside the packages. I really appreciate their care and handling of the books I purchase here. Not to mention the prices are good. Trust me (someone who buys books from sellers around the world constantly), you can't go wrong doing business here! One of the best booksellers- period.
