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

Indeed Garm, very odd... maybe the copyright page is no longer there?
Haha Trotter, so true! O well, I must have made the same mistake before I suppose. But then again, ebay is such a fabulous place where the strangest things can happen.

The listing has been changed, the pictures now show the impression details, but the two pictures that I showed before have vanished.

The newly selected pictures show the book in a much better light than before.

I hope any purchaser does not get a nasty shock when they see the spine and library stamps.
