I received two copies of this for Christmas. One was autographed, which I am keeping. The other got slightly damaged when our Christmas tree fell over. Lucky for you, I cannot return it. But it is still in good condition as the damage is limited to the back cover and the lower corner of some of the back pages. It is a wonderful cookbook with gorgeous photos of Italy. I plan on drawing the winning name from the followers of this blog on February 28th. Good luck!!
