Unfortunately, whilst people continue to buy items with cut signatures having no provenance (or frankly cut signatures at all), these items will keep on appearing.

In my opinion, a cut signature on a piece of paper is so obviously falsifiable, it has to always be considered worthless.

Yesterday I was in one of those outlet bookstores that appear for a few moths and then disappear, (In Australia), and I was a little surprised to find a few first printings of B&L discounted already. Then I also found some 'Lay of A&I' there also. The latter were essentially in as new condition, while the B&L were a little scratch and dent they were acceptable, the one I got was 'Fine'. Admittedly the B&L does have that awful discounted book texter line on the base, but 'Lay of A&I' doesn't.
Unfortunately my days of perfectionist book collecting are over for now, while I am studying, but still, considering my local bookshops didn't have B&L stocked when I went to get it, I found the outlet bookstores stock reasonable considering they were only $5 AUD each.



I never quite understood quite why current books got remaindered in Oz, but I used to see it quite a lot, even though the book was still getting reprints in identical format.

Sounds like you got a bargain.

Even more confusing. These aren't remotely rare.
