They didn't update their actual legal texts (copyright law is copyright law --it hasn't changed), other in respect to communicating it. It's more of a sharp reminder, I'd say. The problem, surely, is that it's Lewis's responsibility to check copyright issues, not for The Estate to have to pursue him & check for him. The onus is on Lewis. (Or was.)

It truly is a lovely copy and the kind collector's want to find


Really ex-Library copies at £5000, no inscriptions but lots of Library stamps.

It was the only edition to not have any colour illustrations


No it was not, the 1942 UK Book Club edition does not have any colour illustrations.

It seems odd to me that the vendor hasn't given pictures of the frontispiece - which is unique to the 1st imp. - nor the copyright page.

It is strange, the pictures do not really show that is is 1st/1st, but he does show the library markings

There is a cheaper copy on ebay at the moment which is not ex-library, I would have hoped that ebay sellers check this, before they post
