I can almost smell the horrible vinyl cover on the "journal".

I appreciate that twenty-first century human existence is mostly about being suckered into buying crap we don't need (as we are essentially only intermediaries between production of said crap and eventual filing of same into landfill), but this stuff just needs to bypass the consumer and get trucked straight to some future dioxin-leaking environmental disaster.

Can't imagine the publisher doing such a rough job. I wonder if it was to remove an ex-libris stamp or somesuch. Then again, you would think if someone was trying to hide something, they would do a much tidier job, rather than just ripping a page out.

Why

eBay Item #111602707975


Why is it so cheap???? "Condition is commensurate with age. Faded spine. Foxing/tanning to edges and/or ends. Pages tanned". It would be 800 pounds if it was in good nick! :)

Sorry, I have no idea why these are so overpriced or seemly this popular.


I'd like to own a set purely so I could give them to someone who I don't like. Maybe that is the explanation -- people are buying them for their nemeses.
