Mine arrived. I opened the box and the presentation is impressive.
I have been do a bunch of overtime so I am somehow waiting until Sunday to sit down to enjoy them. I’m afraid if I start looking at them I won’t sleep.

Got mine yesterday. I'm not so strong since my arm tendon surgery, and this box is heavy...!

Surprised and delighted to see a near-twin to the JR I bought from Fred a few years ago on first page (of sorts) of Vol. 1:

Received my books today. Epic stuff. Great information. I immediately opened the caseback on my Andover to see if it might be a rare 14k gf. Dangit, nope. Fun reading. Thank you Fred, and everyone involved.
