My wife is a fan of paperweights. We came across this book, which is out of print, one day in our local library. My wife was taken with it, and I decided to get it for her as a gift. listed a number of sellers and I wanted a new copy and was willing to pay than the cheapest price, figuring that I would be more likely to get a new book. I selected SELLC as the seller. They stated that the "Mint... Last of our New Publishers Sealed..." The book is in great condition, except that it was clearly not unused - it has an inscription on the title page (not from the author) - so it is clear that someone bought the book, wrote in it and then returned it.The book is a fantastic book with beautiful pictures and lots of good info for collectors. I didn't and wouldn't have returned the book (having discovered all of this after finding the book several months after buying it), but I would like the seller to be completely honest rather than mistating the true condition of the book.
I needed a quick reference for a project and this covered some of the material I was looking for. I'll probably put it away with the rest of my antique reference books. but it was handy for the moment.
This is a great informative book , I learned a lot about the process of making paperweights and what to look for in terms of which ones have the most value. All in all, an outstanding book.
Great resource guide and lovely pictures. This book was very helpful.
did not know it was a recycled library book. got what I paid for. Service was very good. Book was less than helpful
Great photographs and good overview. Very good condition, quick delivery.
Not as much info as I would have liked. Vendor was excellent though
