1st print of "full size edition" sold out / shipping log

Angelica Kauffmann (c.1780)
"Vestal Virgin"
Two days after the first Dutch interview about Oera Linda was published, the first print (500 copies) of Codex Oera Linda ~ full size edition was sold out. We are already taking orders for the second print of 500 (further edited and improved) copies, but we can not guarantee a release date yet.

Most parcels were delivered without problems (although often later than promised by the postal companies). The tracking service often does not work well, resulting in much extra work, annoyance and stress.

SHIPPING LOG

Report of where the parcels went and what (possible) problems still remain to be solved. This list will be updated.

Some books were reserved (including some shipped to me) for compensation in case parcels get lost or arrive in a poor state (too much damaged). Thus far, 1 book arrived in USA too much damaged so a new copy was sent. Some parcels may end up being returned to us. We will do our best to solve any problems that may arise.
