Let me tell you - Daedalus is FABULOUS!!! Shipping is low, I always recieve my order within 3 days & they have a wonderful inventory. They're basically a warehouse that carries leftover, out-of-print, & overstock books. In fact, there was a recent article on them in The Washington Post about what a great business they are.
And I agree that they ARE a terrific business. I've gotten not only fabulous out-of-print cooking & gardening books from them, but also CD's, DVD's, & great notecards. In fact, this past Halloween I gifted several friends with boxes of "Gargoyle" notecards that Daedalus had on sale.
Daedalus makes a LOT of $$$$ off of me - lol!!!! But they're worth every penny. Everything is packed extremely well - I have yet to receive anything less than pristine. But you know, their customer service is so wonderful, that I wouldn't worry if something did arrive less than.
