Morgan --you're mental! When did you start collecting US editions anyway?

In regard to the description (Stu), pretty hard to argue that this is mis-described. With number line use there is no stated date for the impression itself --so what other date, besides the copyright date, is the seller going to give? e.g. LotRs 2004 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (like the matching H you're talking about in the other thread Stu). If this was number lined "3456789", people would still refer to it as the "2004 3rd impression", despite the printing date of the 3rd impression probably not being 2004; but 2005, 2006 etc. It doesn't say. Only collateral information (e.g. from correspondence with HC) would allow you to confidently state the actual date of this impression's physical printing.
[If this is what you refer to in regard to any mis-describing! ]

EDIT: Of course, if the jacket isn't original to this particular copy, then you might have a case.


That is what I was referring to. The 25th impression should not have a modern $14.95 jacket with a barcode. The book and jacket don't match, but there is nothing in the listing to state that. It is moot anyway as the seller has done the right thing.

Under-described as well as over-priced ...

Well at least he spelt the title of the book correctly - and the author's name. And he's right about the date too (presumably) so - what more could a punter ask?

quote: "To reiterate: every page is blank, there is no printing in or on the book. There is no actual printing on the dust jacket, except for a label. It is a blank printer's dummy. "

Clearly the vendor is hoping for a buyer who is both rich, and stupid.
