NOTE ON CONDITION: at G G ALLSORTS we try to give an overall impression of the condition of the book on every occasion – for the more expensive books we give more individual detail plus the overall condition evaluation.  The ratings are listed here in the order we give them to assist you in considering your purchase but please use them as a guide only and read the full condition report if there – as with everything else in the listing, any questions please ask:

VERY GOOD: may have a small flaw but nothing more than would be acceptable if buying from a retailer selling new books.

GOOD: may have some small flaws – dustjacket: crimping around the edges very slight tears and maybe a little discolouration from age.  Hardcover: maybe a slight fading or marking.  Pages: slight edge marking and maybe some slight yellowing if book over 10 years old.  Dedication/ book plate. 

REASONABLE: may have damage to the dustjacket, slight damage to the hard cover and yellowing to the pages in line with age.  Bigger dedication/book plate. 

ACCEPTABLE: showing signs of age. Dustjacket with some tears and discolouration.  Marks, fading or damage to the hardcover.  Pages yellowing, maybe some foxing due to age etc May have some pages missing/loose but not from the text section of the book – may have some underlining/highlighting (this will be mentioned in the listing if there).  Foxing and age related problems

READING/ READABLE COPY: may have loose pages, lots of underlining, bad dustcover, cover damage, page curling, discolouration etc etc  only older or rarer books will be listed in this condition others are recycled.

POOR:  May have loose/missing pages.  Damaged cover and general problems which will be listed.  Only rare and old books are listed with this condition when it would be better to have a poor copy than no copy.  Modern and readily available books will not be listed in this condition.
