1.0 out of 5 stars The Nine Tailors DL Sayers - certainly not in good condition as advertised by seller., 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The paperback arrived this morning - nothing like the paperback advertised in this picture.
Actually a completely different paperback, grubby and worn folded covers - not as book seller claimed.
Corners of pages at one time folded by someone who did not finish reading the book.

Not a good advert for Dorothy L Sayers who was undoubtedly a fine writer.

Cabinets of Curiosities

5.0 out of 5 stars really incredible book..., 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly fabulous book, full of beautiful full colour images complimented with a well researched written text.
There is marvellous automata (for example an amazing colour example of a 16th century German automaton of Neptune sitting on a tortoise both of whom can move) with highly ornate baroque astronomical clocks and armillary spheres.
From the grotesque mummified heads to animal skulls; teddy bears to taxidermy, fabled creatures to incredible three dimensional assemblages of contemporary sculpture by the artist Daniel Spoerri in the chapter headed Resurgences...
this really is an incredible book.
