Well, the seller does describe the condition as 'Acceptable'. I always wonder what that means; 'acceptable' to whom?

But later in the description, the condition is downgraded (I suppose) to 'good'.

"GEORG ALLEN & UNWIN LTD

second impression 1962

hard cover + jacket

63 + 1 page

good condition"

What's the '+1' page, I wonder?

Am I missing something here, this is very expensive for a 1st/1st but for a 1st/2nd.

Interesting article here - an EU court ruling says that eBay may be held liable if counterfeit items are sold through it and eBay had "sufficient information that the goods were not lawful" and did not prevent the sale.

That's indeed a beautiful painting! To me it seems like an object that would be more suited for auction houses, like Sotheby's and Christie's.
