How we identify Book Condition
Condition of a book is usually in the form of "Fine in a Fine Dustwrapper" or F/F, VG/VG etc. The first part is the condition of the book, the second is the condition of the dust jacket. If a "/--" is present, it means that the dustjacket is not present.
Fine (F or FN) - Fine is my highest grade and is synonymous for very fine, as new or mint. For the use of the term Fine, there must be no defects, wear, previous owner markings, etc., and the binding should be tight and the boards without bumps or wear, any defects will be noted.
Near Fine (NF) Almost fine but may have light shelfwear, light rubbing or toning to dustwrapper or previous owner markings. Any defects will be noted.
Very Good (VG) - Describes a book that does show some signs of wear on either binding or paper. Any defects will be noted.
Good (G) - Describes the average used worn book that has all pages or leaves present. Any defects will be noted.
Fair - Worn book that has complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title, etc. (which must be noted). Binding, jacket (if any), etc., may also be worn. All defects will be noted..
