If you look at the first picture of it being held and zoom where the inside of the spine should be visible at the bottm, it looks like it is present. I think the person just didn't take any photos of it. Looks like a good copy for the money.

Edit - if you look at the feedback, the seller changed his mind about selling the book, and reneged on the deal.

I'm guessing someone offered him more money (which reflects as badly on the person offering on a fairly closed auction as on the seller)....

I'm not sure why anyone would be trying to protect this worthless, ex-library copy.


The seller is Alan-53. That should be enough answer for you...

Is it not standard practice for sellers to declare their copy of RK to have first state text on p.49, whichever state they have?!!


"Tolkin" vs "Tolkeen"....

Deagol,

Congratulations on winning best web site at the Tolkien Society Awards for 2015.

http://www.tolkiensociety.org/2015/04 ... ty-awards-2015-announced/

Very well deserved


Indeed, well done - and thanks. It remains unchallenged as the "go-to" website. Don't ever decide you are bored with Tolkien and take it down!
