Is this the original DJ? I bought this from the TS when they'd run out of DJs but I seem to recall seeing a DJ before... and this doesn't look familiar. What's the front label on the jacket all about?

Yes, that's the original DJ - matches the one I have anyway.

Is your label that poorly stuck on?

Mine is ok but it is a bit of a homemade job.

Found one on ebay several years ago. Under front board was an envelope with photocopies of the pages that missed early bindings: 309-312.

Ha Ha, I literally logged on to report this particular wonder. Whenever there is something like this, 50:50, eBay seller cv0030 is behind it. Awful seller, IMHO.

£50 of books (they aren't at all hard or expensive to find in un-slipcased form, i.e. copies not sold as a "set") with a £300 custom slipcase...

I really, really hate this "sophistication" of relatively common copies thing.
