Oh, I'm not suggesting that there was any deliberate deception. And I  
don't see any typos in the listing. I'm talking about absurd  
statements that I see on eBay all the time - statements such as  
"There's no copyright date, so I assume it's a first edition." I have  
no patience with such blatant silliness.
