This beautiful book was part of a 3-book purchase from this shop. I can say this about each of the three— Exactly as pictured and described! The owner included my gift note for my precious friend that these were for, AND they HAND-WROTE the note in a beautiful script! It looks as if they have included a very special gift of ornate keys. I am VERY touched and impressed! As for shipping and arrival time, I was impressed. I didn’t realize at the time of purchase that this shop is in Hawaii. I live in So Cal. My purchase had to deal with the Atmospheric River 😱 getting across the Pacific to L.A., then across the US to my friend’s home in Michigan. No complaints here! My friend loved each book, being an author herself! Her name is Susan Vandepol, author of Life After Breath, a book for widows. Outstanding read to come along side!

Response from Black Diamond Peach

Thank you so much for your AMAZING review! Reading this has just absolutely warmed my heart and you are so kindhearted. I loved hearing that your friend, Susan Vandepol (I LOVE that book you mentioned and highly recommend it to anyone!), loved these books and everything that came with the package! Thank you so, so much for trusting me with your beautiful gift for your friend, and I am so grateful for customers like you! <3

What a wonderful acquisition… well represented and packaged with such care… I LOVE the fact that the piece came with some historical documentation, allowing me the ability to research where the book came from and who possessed it. What a story to go with the importance of the book itself. Now I am a part of its journey! I have it in its new home, displayed in a nice wooden shadow box with all its documents… along with a description of the book’s content and the importance it played leading up to the French Revolution! VIVA LA RESISTANCE!!!

Response from Black Diamond Peach

I’m so glad to hear that you love this beautiful book as much as I did, and it’s absolutely wonderful to hear how much you value it by taking such good care of it and loving the amazing story behind it. Thank you so much for an awesome review, as well as supporting my small business. I can’t wait to see what you find next! <3

The quality of the item is not perfect, but the listing reflected all of the imperfections of this old book. This book is a really cool addition to my growing collection of antique and vintage books. This is not my first purchase from Black Diamond Peach and it definitely won't be my last.

Response from Black Diamond Peach

I try my hardest to be as honest as possible about the descriptions and I truly appreciate that you love your book just as much as I did! Thank you and I can’t wait to see what you find next!
