Book Grading Guidelines: Ex-library books, Book Club editions, and remaindered books will always be identified as such. We try to describe each book we list as completely as possible. Although we may not mention every spine crease or scratch, we make every effort to make note of all significant defects, including bookplates, writing or markings, and strong odors. The VERY GOOD and GOOD categories may be modified with a plus (+) or minus (-) sign to signify that the book(s) being described falls a little bit above or below the usual book with that grading.
LIKE NEW / AS NEW: Item could easily be mistaken for brand new. The book is tight and crisp with perhaps minor wear along the book's exterior edges. No missing pages, and all pages are undamaged with no creases or tears. There are no markings of any kind. The only signs of wear may be minor rubs or scuffs to the cover or jacket from shipping, or lightly bumped spine ends or corners from shelving.
FINE: Some evidence of slight wear. Approaches the condition of LIKE NEW, but without being as crisp. This copy may have been opened carefully one or twice, resulting in a light reader's crease (a crease along the edge of the cover by the spine) or minor stress lines on the spine. The binding is still tight. Cover or dustjacket may have minor rubbing; hardcovers may have lightly bumped spine ends. NEAR FINE : This grade signifies a book or dust jacket approaching FINE but with a couple of minor defects or faults. Original cover lamination (if any) may be slightly peeling at the corners. Edge staining (if any) could be slightly faded. Pages are largely white but may show browning around the edges. No major creases or bends are in the covers. The book or jacket may have lightly bumped spine ends, a small amount of rubbing wear, or light wear showing on the jacket or board edges. There will be no tears or markings. An assortment of minor indications of wear may be present, but the book remains a very nice copy.
VERY GOOD: The book is obviously used but is still fairly tight and structurally sound. There are no missing pages. Any noticeable wear is not major. There may be some light wear, soiling, fading, or yellowing, depending on age. Cover luster/gloss may have faded or plastic lamination (if any) may be peeling in spots. There may be slight bends or creases on the cover of softcover books. There may be a small amount of marking inside the cover or on an end page (i.e. previous owner identification, bookstore stamp) but there is no underlining or highlighting of text. The spine may be bent from several readings but will show no more than a moderate amount of creasing. Softcovers or board edges may show light edgewear. Jackets may show a little rubbing or crinkling at the edges. Any tears or chips in the jacket will be identified.
GOOD : A typical "used" book. This book is showing signs of wear and use, but remains structurally good. There may be foxing, yellowing, or similar age-toning. The cover or jacket may show some wear – fading, soiling, loss of luster, creases, scratches or small tears. The spine of softcover books may be slanted and will likely have moderate to heavy creasing. The majority of pages are undamaged (minimal creases or tears). This book may have some markings – bookstore stamps, previous owner identifications or minimal underlining of text. A dust jacket rated good will likely have some tears or missing chips. ACCEPTABLE (FAIR / POOR / READING COPY) : A worn book that has complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title pages, etc. Possible writing in margins, possible underlining and highlighting of text. May be soiled, scuffed, stained, or spotted, and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc. The book is in the lowest useable condition. Jacket (if any), may have large tears or be incomplete.
