I loved the book & the offered price. No issues with delivery. In an age of easy duplicability on the net, only properly-priced books will survive. In India , at least, sellers should forget about selling books above Rs 2,000 even if they are imported ones. I am looking forward to buying Russell's History of Western Philosophy when it is available at a heavy discount (though I have its ebook).
The Basic Writings Of Bertrand Russell,A 2017 Indian edition of this book is available (available for purchase in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka). Search for '9781138302006' (without the quotes) on the search bar of amazon. Right now, it's available for 1058 and is amazon-fulfilled and prime-eligible. 9781138302006 is the ISBN of the book.
You can verify that the book's ISBN is original by googling 'The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell site:routledge.com'. Routledge is the publisher of both editions of the book.
I will update about the quality of the Indian edition after I receive the book.
Update: Quality of book is good. Font might be small for some people. The table of contents of the book is below:
