Book Conditions



  •     As New is self-explanatory. It means that the book is in the state that it should have been in when it left the publisher. This is the equivalent of Mint condition in numismatics.
  •     Fine (F or FN) is As New but allowing for the normal effects of time on an unused book that has been protected. A fine book shows no damage.
  •     Very Good (VG) describes a book that is worn but untorn. For many collectors this is the minimum acceptable condition for all but the rarest items. Any defects must be noted.
  •     Good (G) describes the condition of an average used worn book that is complete. Any defects must be noted.
  •     Acceptable shows wear and tear but all the text pages and illustrations or maps are present. It may lack endpapers, half-title, and even the title page. All defects must be noted.
  •     Poor describes a book that has the complete text but is so damaged that it is only of interest to a buyer who seeks a reading copy. If the damage renders the text illegible then the book is not even poor.
  •     Ex-library copies must always be designated as such no matter what the condition of the book.
  •     Book Club copies must always be designated as such no matter what the condition of the book.
  •     Binding Copy describes a book in which the pages or leaves are perfect, but the binding is very bad, loose, off or non-existent.
