Indeed Garm, very odd... maybe the copyright page is no longer there?
Haha Trotter, so true! O well, I must have made the same mistake before I suppose. But then again, ebay is such a fabulous place where the strangest things can happen.

The listing has been changed, the pictures now show the impression details, but the two pictures that I showed before have vanished.

The newly selected pictures show the book in a much better light than before.

I hope any purchaser does not get a nasty shock when they see the spine and library stamps.

MESSAGE TO FORUM MEMBERS

"The Wonders of eBay" is so wonderful that some people want to post wonders from other book sites e.g. Abebooks. To accommodate this we were thinking of renaming the thread "The Wonders of [something else]".

Suggestions please!

Indeed, perhaps just retiring "eBay" from the title would work best.

The Wonders of...

I like that.
