Re: Xeroxed Marlo Magazine: What would you do?

On August 30, I asked the seller (zanderduncan), the following question about his Marlo's Magazine #1 lot (151395542441): Why are you selling print outs of a pdf? Reply: reprints started at very low bidding price, because they are print outs. if you don't want reprint, don't bid, and pay high price...

Re: Xeroxed Marlo Magazine: What would you do?

The guy is actually selling a lot of magic books so he can probably tell you more about what you bought. If you look there are items just like what you bought that were phot...

Re: Xeroxed Marlo Magazine: What would you do?

It looks like you may have bought an authorized reprinted/photocopied/whatever from back in the day. The guy sold issues 1, 2 and 3 and no more. If he was making the copies then he would have more to sell or sold more. Plus he has 100% feedback. http://www.ebay.com/sch/zanderduncan/m.html?item=15139...

You have got to be misunderstanding that.

So many packages from the early 80's had the glue fail. I wonder why it happened for so many years. I would think that they would have got a handle on it and fixed it after a year or two. Richard, will there be information about the packages where the glue has failed in the Tenyo book you are writing?
