The only thing that worries me is that no one else even bid on it! I agree, everything about the listing itself looks promising.

If it makes you feel any better, I was going to bid - had my finger on the confirm bid button - but just didn't hit it (having bought so many books in the past couple of days).

All looks great to me. A great addition to the collection and a real bargain. Congrats.....
I wanted to bid too, but I've spent too much recently.

Trotter is referencing book grading terms, not intrinsic consumer value with his comment here I believe. I agree with him, that is definitely poor condition, not acceptable.

Very true. I'd have found the money to "Buy it Now" if it was "Acceptable". Still, I'll be shocked if it doesn't sell. Just not many of those around, in any condition.

I don't like the eBay category 'acceptable' for listings, it seems to mean that the book may still have most of its pages, a better definition would be "Very Poor"
