Scot --

Pure willful ignorance, not only of the Modern Library, but bookselling in 
general. Wannabe seller is either bizarrely optimistic, delusional, or 
dishonest. Definitely lazy. "Appears to be a first edition" is one degree short of 
"appears to be a reading device" for laughability. Such language would have just 
generated ridicule in an old-fashioned mail catalogue. No excuses.

Off to an auction; wish me luck,
