This seller has listed and relisted the same books numerous times -- even when it appears an auction has been won. Also appears to knowingly hide restoration/trimming.
Action 44http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 1701wt_905
This book has been listed 4 times to date. Twice as a BIN which no one hit, and twice in auction format for significantly less than his BIN price. When I asked the seller why it was still for sale, he stated that the buyer backed out. Twice now?

Note: It is clearly the same book, but pencil markings have been erased on the front cover and the tear at the spine has been sealed or closed up in some manner. Spine seems to have shifted to the back, so it was probably pressed. The brightness has been pumped up in the scan to give the cover a brighter, cleaner appearance.
Also note how the the back cover image has been cropped to conveniently hide the severe trimming.
