I happened to order this from Amazon (adveristed as the 70th Anniversary Hardcover), but received a regular reprint of the 1995 Edition (duly returned). Not sure if it actually exists at all yet in Hardcover.

Seems to be a misplaced photo.

See this other auction listing from the same seller.

Looks like the seller mistakenly added the photo from the above listing to the 1915 Oxford Poetry Listing.

Regards.

Unfortunately, it would appear to be another fake. Here is an auction from the same seller for a Signed Harry Potter Book (with Letter).

http://cgi.ebay.com/Harry-Potter-Gobl ... ZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

From a Feedback Comment back in March, it would seem that the Seller sold another Signed Harry Book, and again with a letter.

Caveat Emptor!!

Like you, I did not bid because I was not 100% sure. However I did email the seller about the book. He said the book was inscribed to a P. P. Mroczkowski.

I presume this is Przemyslaw Mroczkowski. I found a bibliographical entry as follows:

"Mroczkowski, Przemyslaw: Dżentelmeni i poeci: Eseje z literatury angielskiej. Kraków: Wydaw. Liter., 1975. 306, [2] pp.
Zł. 45.00.
See the chapter "Uczoność a wyobrażnia w Oksfordzie", pp. 278-307, an essay about C. S. Lewis and Tolkien.
Title in English translation: Gentlemen and Poets: Essays on English Literature. "

But can you ever be 100% sure about a signature. But I must say I was very tempted to bid. I had the feeling that it was all genuine.
