Re: The Wonders of eBay

I'm sure a lot of you have noticed the 2nd UK Impression of the Hobbit that is listed on ebay. Also some of you may have noticed that some or most of the photo's were taken by myself some years ago. The link to the auction is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280724837525? ... _trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The reason I'm posting this notice, the seller indicates the book is in the original cloth with repairs to the spine tips. Then the photo's of mine, show that book, but not the exterior. The photo's that have been added after my request show a fully rebound copy, which also appears to have been one that I had rebound, by the small JRRT monogram on the spine versus the runes. I just wanted to point out that something is very wrong on this auction. It may be legit, but something is a bit hinky. The seller has not answered my questions about whether it is rebound or not, says to read the description (mine) and then goes and posts photo's of the fully rebound copy. Just wanted to warn anyone who might be considering bidding on this auction. Photo's of the original 'repaired' cover are attached.
