Condition and Descriptions

We do not sell rubbish !
Please read descriptions carefully though, main faults noted, reading copies are meant for readers rather than collectors
Most of the books we sell are old so therefore may have a musty or 'old book' smell from time-to-time
This can exacerbated by the lamentable British publisher habit of using high acidity paper
Because I'm so used to it I, generally, can no longer detect it so it would not appear in a description

Hardback - Hardcover Books

All faults are noted including previous owner names, inscriptions or stamps etc
Standard international grading terms apply

Please do not hesitate to contact us for a fuller description

All books are unconditionally guaranteed as described
We are very particular about condition - you will not be disappointed
All books thoroughly checked, cleaned, presented and all dust wrappers have removable film covers fitted
First Edition means first impression/printing - reprints or later impressions are clearly noted

Reading Copies

Any book described as a reading copy is deemed, by us, to be below par for the fastidious collector
They are usually very scarce out of print titles but suitable primarily for reading
They will be clean with complete text etc but may show faults that diminish their collectable value

Paperbacks - Softcover Books

We do not sell tatty copies, all are clean and presentable
There may be some minor wear and rubbing to edges and spine
They may also show light and minor signs of having been read
Once again all books are cleaned and checked
If you are a collector of paperbacks with specific condition requirements...
