To be honest, they could do a lot better than just replacing with a page from the facsimile Hobbit. Not that hard to source matching paper (blank pages from same-era books) and then print a scan of the facsimile page onto the matching paper and then insert that page onto the stub of the original. It would match quite well.

Not a problem, so long as it is disclosed to any future buyer, I guess. That said, I'm surprised at the price being so high for a book with this kind of damage.

I was so ready to bid on this auction but the seller must have gotten a request to add a Buy it Now and accepted... I wish I had thought to ask that!

Looks far from "fine"; look at those tatty corners. Still, C$30 is a crazy low price. Seller clearly had no idea what they had.
