1993 owner's manual originality question

Hello all,

I recently bought the 300-page owners manual for my XJ40 to supplement the well-worn original that came with the vehicle when new. The “new old stock” version I purchased seems to be a copy (no glossy pages and color photos). I’m thinking it was a mistake on the seller’s part? Would $40 US that I paid be a fair price for this “NOS” copy? Thank you in advance.

Check the part number (back cover?) and compare …
