I'm after a copy if anyone has one for sale at a reasonable amount (i.e. not $300).

Cheers
Stu

Most likely someone contacted the seller with a better offer, but you will probably never know. Unfortunately these things do happen sometimes. Better luck next time.

That is really unfortunate--they know they have a questionable item, yet they go ahead and sell it.



It isn't just unfortunate, it seems more like it is just plain dishonest. At a minimum, one would think that there should be some kind of note as the the questionable provenance of the item.

i was the one that ended up getting this book, so i will let you know if it is a lighter shade or as i suspect just the lighting effect that is from the flash on the camera. The photo of this book on Tolkien books looks very much the same as well.

I bought a copy of the lord of the rings 1997 deluxe Indian paper edition with the quarter leather, which on the photo appeared to be brown, but as we know is black. I was a little anxious but the ebayer assured me it was just the flash and luckily for me it was, so i am hoping the same will happen this time.



This book looked a bit tatty - what is the general consensus on the final price on this one. I wouldn't mind buying a copy, but this one seemed a bit expensive for the condition (or am I off base)?

From the Festival Art and Books website:


Returns accepted within 7 days. Please notify me for approval before sending. Returns accepted on the basis the item is seriously not as described and if full list price is paid.


So, presumably if a book is seriously misdescribed, but the buyer didn't pay full list price, there is no refund...? Also, if a book is only a bit misdescribed (surely it is either misdescribed or not?) then also no refund applies...?

The fact is that in the UK, one has certain statutory rights, and misdescribing a product breaches those rights, so a refund is pretty much always going to be legally applicable in cases of misdescription.
