That's a pretty specific estimate.

Cut signature from one book and stick in another? I just see stuff like this as worthless -- two books ruined by one signature with no provenance.

I have never been a fan of 'tipped in' signatures, but this is mad, both books ruined :)

It has been updated now, what did she originally claim on this probably 1973, has £0.60 as price, edition of the paperback?

As an aside, I am very grateful that Unwin Books printed the price on the front of the book for early copies, makes spotting genuine examples on eBay so much easier

In used condition, described as both acceptable and well-used.

Looks like it had a tour scuba-diving as well.

OMG here is a good one and a seller to be aware off. He is selling this book and I asked for a pic of whole book, he then posted up different signatures. When challenged they advised that he/she did not own the book but would help sell it to me from another seller etc etc
I declined the offer ! - item reported

Good detective work @Tolkieniano! That seller is definitely just grabbing images from around the web to pretend they have something worth selling. Total scam.
