Hello All,

I purchased a DMG 1st print on eBay and the cover is in excellent condition, there is a name stamped inside the cover. The overall condition of the book is excellent, as described, but the seller missed about a dozen instances of pencil writing within the book. The writing is very meticulous and neat, not sloppy, and appears to be the necessary "corrections" to the 1st addition. I paid $66 for the book and the seller is willing to offer a partial refund, as I would like to keep it. I was thinking that a $20 refund is "fair", but hard to say. Would you guys please give me your opinion.

Thanks in Advance - Paul

$46 does not sound like a bad price for a 1st print DMG.  If you can live with the minor imperfections (eye of the beholder, you, not the monstrous type ;)), I think the deal is fair.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

For what's it worth, I went through a similar situation a couple of years ago with a 1st print DMG oddly enough.  I got a $20 refund then because the seller didn't want to take the book back.  All the writing that was in the book I bought was in red thin marker, so I don't know how he missed it.  I think what you are asking for is fair.  If he doesn't refund, then I would move to return the book since the item was not as described and get your money back.

Sounds fair to me

Hi Guys,

I greatly appreciate your advice and guidance ... it is difficult to evaluate something when you have a vested interest in the matter  PDT_Armataz_01_21
