Condition of Books

We ask sellers to use these guidelines and indicate the condition of the book. They are largely based on the conditions defned by amazon. You can also use the Notes field to provide additional information.

•    New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition. All supplementary materials are included and all access codes for electronic material, if applicable, are valid and/or in working condition. Books with markings of any kind on the cover or pages, books marked as "Bargain" or "Remainder," or with any other labels attached, may not be listed as New condition.

•    Used - Like New: Dust cover is intact, with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds of any kind. May contain remainder marks on outside edges, which should be noted in listing comments.

•    Used - Very Good: Has seen limited use but remains in great condition. Pages and dust cover are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. Unmarked and undamaged, but may show some limited signs of wear. The spine is undamaged.

•    Used - Good: All pages and cover are intact (including the dust cover, if applicable). Spine may show signs of wear. Pages may include limited notes and highlighting. May include "From the library of" labels.


•     Used - Acceptable: All pages and the cover are intact, but the dust cover may be missing. Pages may include limited notes and highlighting, but the text cannot be obscured or unreadable.

•    Used - Damaged: Book has missing pages, obscured or unreadable text, or heavy notes and highlighting. Please explain in the Note field.


We do not permit the listing of advance reading copies, including uncorrected proofs, of in-print or not-yet-published books.
