Hello everyone!

I stumbled over an auction on Ebay, and after asking the seller about who has printed it, the headband and dyed edge, he has posted some pictures which are quite strange for me.
It appears to be a 1977 George Allen & Unwin, printed by Clowes & Sons with a unpriced dustjacket and bind in cloth,
therefor it should be a Export Edition Variant 1 as listed on Deagols site (Kudos to your work! It was and is really a great help for me).
But there shouldn´t be any edition which has a blue and white striped headband and no blue dyed top edge.

In the pictures you can see, that the top edges from the cloth are faded nearly to grey.
Is it possible that the blue dye on the edge of the paper faded away too or someone sandpapered it for whatever reason?

Maybe someone can shed some light on this.

I won't disclose the price, as that isn't really any of my business, but Orcraider confirmed it was sold --and paid. I don't have any reason to suspect otherwise. Of course, deals fall through --but in this case the money has, metaphorically, changed hands. And, I may be mistaken, but I'm sure he would have said if he had decided to simply hold onto it.

It's great to have confirmation that copies are out there. The hunt goes on!
