I bought it as an e-book, so of course getting it right away is a plus. I had a bit of trouble with the delivery, but the provider was extremely helpful, got back to me right away and resolved the issue; excellent customer service.

I have been collecting for over 10 years now and what an eye opener this is. Sadly enough I to have identified few East European fake Galle vases in my collection. The ebook version works excellent on my ipad and the staggering illustrations can be viewed in detail. What a delight it was to read this eye opener.
