Got the book today, it was indeed the photo that has made it look a lighter shade of brown than it is. I think the price is about right.
The fading at the bottom is also alot less noticeable than in the photo as its much more dark brown with only a faint line/crease where it has gone a shade lighter so i don't really know what went on with the photo there (angle of light on leather?). I will take a photo if anyone is bothered, lol.
But i am very happy, its in way better condition than i thought it was (no general fading of spine and the rubbing is minimal, not like photo) also in unread condition inside.
This is the first book i have bought that wasn't in fine condition and although i want to buy all my books in mint condition I'm fine about this, though i will be annoyed if another one goes for 30 pounds now!
Just got to save up for mint 1st edition 1st imps of the hobbit and the lord of the rings now, haha.
