And the description is inaccurate. If it's a first printing of the A&U one-volume paperback (the ‘Pauline Baynes edition’) it may be a first British paperback edition, but the first paperback edition is the Ace ‘pirate’ of 1965. And it may be a first English one-volume edition, the first one-volume edition was the Dutch one of 1965.

The photographs look very much like done with care and attention. The copy in it looks excellent. Then why the need to add a provenance with such obvious nonsense in it? Makes the whole thing look fishy.

Which item?

(I think a link is missing.)

Edit:
just saw your link in the other thread. But why another thread? Why not just edit your post here?

As far as I can tell they are exactly the same images, but cropped less closely.
