Let The Buyer Beware

I have listed a very important and scarce bookplate from the library of Frederic Remington on Ebay.
Here is a link:

A word of caution- There are at least two dealers on Ebay who are selling scans of  bookplates on a buy it now basis .You have to scroll down quite a bit before you are told these are reproductions.I suspect many buyers are so anxious to buy what seems to be a fantastic bargain that they never scroll down far enough to see the tricky wordcraft..Here is an example of what I mean:

Like I say , let the buyer beware.

You got it right - Let the Buyer Beware. It says in the red highlighted text that you are purchasing a PHOTO.
