What's going on here?

The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien (Hardback, 1992, Centenary edition) (Current bid: £92)

This description only has:-

THE SILMARILLION
J.R.R. TOLKIEN
Hardback Centenary Edition (1992)
Excellent condition


The photo is perhaps a stock picture too.

With the knowledge that this edition ran into several impressions, of which this could be one, one has to ask, simply --why?

I bid on this but quit when it went above the price of one on Abebooks. If it was shill bidding I would probably have been offered it as a 'second chance' and I haven't (yet).

Bought this book with the same sketch and signed a few weeks ago with DJ for far far far less.
