I agree with you, but have no real hope that the general ebay seller will figure out the difference between copyright date and impression date. If they do, likely they will chose to emphasize whichever they feel will increase the value of what they have for sale.



You have hit the nail on the head with " they will chose to emphasize whichever they feel will increase the value of what they have for sale". For the most part, this is what sellers are doing, IMHO. Some sellers are genuinely confused, many are just deceptive (I've had plenty where I have pointed out the mistake choose not to correct their auctions).

That seller has cropped up before. Always has the pointless photocopy of the will as a "bonus item". I think was also guilty of the horrible red Guild Hobbit in a dustjacket.

Also, spectacularly failed to notice that Beanie Babies are now worth nothing....

I'm surprised HC haven't reprinted this yet (but I suspect they will at some point). The 2004 Deluxe Hobbits were creeping up strongly in price a few years back due to lack of availability, and then HC did a (presumably less expensive Hong Kong) reprint, which pushed them back to being a 20-30 pounds book on the used market. I don't ever see eBay listings that distinguish between the original print and reprint, as I suspect most people don't know the difference, anyway.

Makes a nice change from "Near Fine", which seems to be the default claim that most book dealers make for their books these days, no matter how damaged the book might be.
