Describing the condition of second-hand books accurately can be somewhat tricky, so here's how we describe a book's condition:
New: This book can be given as a present and no-one would know you got it from a used store! As New: Probably read only once or twice by someone very carefully. Very Good: The spine may have some minor creases or minor bumping on the corners of the book. Good: A few creases, perhaps a small tear or two on the dustjacket; spine could be leaning forward. Fair: Good enough to read and still looks quite okay; not in a wonderful condition, though (yes, a pretty vague description, we know). Poor but Readable: Not a book you'd want to keep on your shelf for display-purposes but perfect for a good read.
Books are generally described in a slightly worse condition than they actually are.
Creating book entries electronically for online use is a tedious task, so please be patient as more books are added to the online catalogue.
