What's wrong with the description of this item?

I sent them an email via eBay having being galled by this section of the description of the item and garm's point "What's wrong with the description of this item?" and then having the cheek to put the following in the listing.

"Purchase with confidence ~ all books, ABA gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Don't miss this opportunity to obtain this much sought after and increasingly Scarce True UK First Edition for your collection!!!"

Dear dragoonbook,

I notice in the description of this item you refer to it as a "True UK First Edition". If you look at the second picture that you have posted and the fifth line from the top it states "Second Edition (fifth impression) 1951". The first four impressions of the book are first editions, this copy is a second edition as stated.
Regards Andrew

Thanks for your email. We will take this item down and relist it
properly. We apologize for our error.
