Our Book Grading System
MINT (M) This means that the book is in near perfect condition. It is complete with its dust-jacket (if present), and is virtually impossible to tell from a new copy.
FINE (F) The book is in excellent condition. Closer examination however will show minor signs of wear and storage. There may be a small inscription from previous ownership, but generally the book is in near perfect condition. Dust-jacket (if present) appears new but may have very slight rubbing on the corners.
VERY GOOD (VG) Still in great condition with minor wear. Apart from slight foxing or fading and/or a small inscription to the inside cover or the book has no faults. Dust-jacket (if present) should be clean with excellent coloring but may have slight rubbing to edges and corners.
GOOD (G) It is obvious that the book is second-hand. Apart from minor faults (edge wear, foxing, fading, minor inscriptions, etc.), it should be in good condition and complete in all respects, unless described otherwise. Dust-jacket (if present) will be fairly clean with good coloring but could have marks, creasing and other signs of wear. The edges could be rubbed or have small nicks or tears in them.
FAIR (FR) The book will display moderate to severe wear, it may be warped, the spine may be damaged but still in tact. The text however will be complete but the book is really only suitable as a reading copy and there may be notes or marking in the margins. Dust-jacket (if present) may be faded, marked, creased or torn.
