· NEW: Just what it says, direct from
the publisher or distributor.
· LIKE NEW: Could easily be mistaken for
brand new. Undamaged cover, no missing pages, all pages undamaged (no
creases or tears), no underlining/highlighting of text, no damage to
binding, no writing in margins.
VERY GOOD: In great condition for a used
book. Has been read but has no easily noticeable damage to the cover, all
pages are present and undamaged (no creases or tears), minimal
underlining/highlighting of text (perhaps on a few pages), no writing in
margins, very minimal identifying marks inside cover, very minimal wear and
tear. May be ex-library, with usual treatments; if so, the book will be
noted as such in the comments.
· GOOD: Very minimal damage to the
cover (no holes or tears, only minimal scuff marks), minimal wear to
binding, majority of pages undamaged (minimal creases or tears),
highlighting/underlining acceptable on textbooks as long as text is
readable and it is not an excessive amount, no missing pages; if so, the
book will be noted as such in the comments.
· ACCEPTABLE: These are books that have been
saved from being unnecessarily discarded. This book has a lot of history,
but still deserves a loving home. Some significant wear to the cover but
still intact; binding may be slightly weak. There might be writing in
margins, or underlining/highlighting of text; there are no missing pages.
May be slightly stained or discolored, but not excessive. If this is with
usual treatments or has some unusual or severe type of damage, such as
water or binding, it will be noted in the comments.
