Sorry but neither of you are serious bidders please move along, the seller, princetn sells to serious bidders only.


I would consider myself a serious bidder in general, just not on this set... does that count? I think so. So I asked princetn if he'd accept $1,225 (a discount of about what the set would be worth in very good condition and maybe with first printings)... figured I'd post the reply since it might be useful for other serious bidders:

"YES AND WE ALSO OFFER FED EX IF NEEDED. (NAME REDACTED.)"

If you're gonna lie blatantly and say that something is a first printing when it clearly isn't, please, at the very least, don't include a picture of the copyright page. At least make an effort.

I personally have not seen before. I have to admire the entrepreneurial spirit in most cases, but for Cheetos it’s gonna have to be a more famous likeness to get my hard earned moola... 😉

If only it had been a 1954 Library Card, then would have considered it, but would not pay that much for this item

So... "Like New" condition?

Condition: Like NEW- light coffee stains/spots on edges of a few ending pages (including the back endpaper) and on the textblock. Remaining pages are new. For more information check provided images or ask us.


Those coffee stains are not "light" my friend...
