They're only following in a long tradition of UK/European typesetters...

I'll comment further later, but one thing I've noted over the last 10-15 years of collecting is that the quality of book listings has absolutely plummeted; maybe there's just more inexperienced sellers out there. Abebooks today is absolutely horrible.

Is Canterbury Classics not a real thing?

Having a look at other items the seller has for sale. All books & at least half a dozen (without counting them here) signed. So, a pretty odd response (to a question of provenance) considering the seller is selling so many other signed books. Also note that the seller makes no claim about them being signed; another pretty suspicious method of listing, thus avoiding claims of mis-selling.
