1973Lee1973 selling PODs as if they are the standard edition. Unfortunately - unless it was a shill bid - it looks like someone bought it.

A non expert seller can be forgiven, but a seller that has been on eBay selling Tolkien for as long as this one has knows he is trying to exploit the naive and ill-informed buyer.

I messaged him before it sold:

"In good condition for age". It might have been printed last week as it is a POD that you can still order new for £50. You have been selling long enough to know this.

He didn't reply.
