Condition Guide

Typical Usage: 'F/VG' ( fine book in very good jacket).

Very Fine (VF) - As new with no defects, crisp, tight binding, absolutely no flaws under close examination.

Near Fine (NF) - No defects, little usage, and markings are minimal. A minor flaw may be present.

Very Good (VG) -  It shows some signs of wear and is no longer fresh. Attractive, but not unusually so. Does not lie flat when open.

Good (G) - The average used book with all pages present. Books with loose bindings, highlighting, cocked spine, torn dust jackets, can fall into this category.

Fair (FR) - Obviously well-worn and handled but no text pages are missing, however, it may be without endpapers or a title page. There might be markings, but they do not interfere with readability.

Poor (P) - All text is legible but may be soiled and have binding defects. Reading copies and binding copies fall into this category.
