I can only repeat Wellinghall.

This looks like an automatically generated sales talk, composed from information from the net, without someone checking for basic correctness. The misdescription of facts plainly on display is repeated from in the previous item in this topic's gallery in almost identical manner. But with the priceless (!) addition, that in this case 'Revised Edition' is printed prominently on all three dj's on display! Someone has been thoroughly asleep while putting this up for sale.

I'm not as charitable as Mithrennaith when it comes to this seller. I don't think it's a question of someone being asleep. Apart from the fact that all of this vendor's descriptions are this florid, he's also guilty of deception (in my opinion) in that he's getting us in with the promise of a first ed, first printing set in djs, and only tells us of the true facts later.

I bought my own set for £45.00 ; they're in much better nick, too.
