Default A Most Curious Book from Amazon

I ordered a book from an Amazon Partner. It is a new book. Reasonably priced. Some sort of healthy eating book Mrs. IA wanted.

It arrived today.

It came from a book dealer New Delhi, India. I didn't notice I was ordering it from an overseas dealer, but whatever. Not the first time I've done it.

Now for the most curious part.

Printed as part of the cover is a red circle wherein is inscribed the following:

"Special Indian Edition. Sale in the US & UK is illegal."

The book was printed in India. All I can figure out is the publishing rights in the US & UK belong to another company.

Still, a most curious occurrence.

PS: I'm in the US.

Sale in the US is not illegal. Importing it may not be allowed. Still got through customs so you should be fine.

I'm not worried about it. Technically it was sold in India and shipped to the US. It was just something odd to see on a book.
