Heya, folks.

I acquired a copy of Deities and Demigods with the Cthulhu mythos that I'd like to put up at Gen Con.  Here's my concern: it looks very much to me like it was a library copy at one point.  There's the remains of a label on the lower corner of the spine, and what looks like a spot for a library card pocket in the back.

Now, I have no way of knowing when, which library, or whether this was legitimately purchased in a library book sale.  That being the case, do you think I should refrain from selling?

If there are really no identifiers, then there is no way for you to return it to a potential rightful owner.  Sell it.

Odd that there are no stamps on the endpapers with the library name. In general, ex-library copies are clearly marked as being an ex-library copy.
