      Comments about The Hubble Cosmos:

      Three of four books I have received from National Geographic recently were damaged in shipment. Unlike other shippers, NGS does not pad the edges of the books it ships. When the boxes get rough treatment, the corners of the covers get badly damaged. I love the books, but I would like to get them in like new condition.
