Having just spent a lot of money on what I think is a rare item, eBay often comes up trumps with what can only be described as What????

Why would a seller continue to use photographs of items similar to merchandise they reportedly have in their possession? Why not use the originals? One cannot help but suspect the seller is simply fishing for high bids on items they know they can then purchase for less elsewhere.

It's an Alan-53 Auction. He always lists things with pictures of different items. Wouldn't touch one of his auctions with a ten foot pole.

And I notice that the 3 sold were for 125 quid. A cynical observer might think they were trying to catch out the unwary by getting a few sales under the belt and jacking the price. You would have to be pretty dumb, though...

That;s the best picture of a mutant drowning a chicken that I have ever seen. What are you complaining about?

This one's even worse - there are pages missing, but the tape is still there!

Prob. library bindings - An interesting set, because of the typography and pictures on the front of TT and RK.

I think this seller likes to be included in The Wonders of... thread

All the current items for sale would make it in with no issues.

Very sad and hugely overpriced listings
