Condition Guidelines

CONDITION GUIDELINES FOR BOOKS

Among rare book sellers and collectors, there is no official or universally accepted code of book evaluation and condition, though most dealers do their best to represent a book's condition as accurately as possible. The most commonly used terms to describe a book's condition, and hence it's intrinsic value, include the following: Fine, Near Fine, Very Good and Good. Always keep in mind that these terms, and how they are applied to a specific copy of a rare book, are subjective and will vary based on the seller's experience and interpretation.

Fine
This is our highest grade. A book and/or dust jacket listed in this condition should be almost "like new" with only very minor signs of use, wear and/or rubbing. Any flaws are usually described in the book's listing. A fine copy, particularly if it is of a rare book or rare in that condition, will usually carry a substantial premium in price.

Near Fine
A book and/or dust jacket in near fine condition cannot be classified as fine because it has a greater accumulation of minor flaws and signs of use than a fine copy. It's flaws are usually described in the book's listing. A near fine copy is still an extremely presentable and collectible copy, just not as close to "like new" as a fine copy.

Very Good
A book and/or dust jacket in very good condition will still be very presentable and in generally sound condition, but it will have visible flaws, including minor fading or staining to covers, rubbing of the extremities, chipping at the spine ends, fraying of cloth, and/or soiling and foxing. A plus (+) or minus (-) sign may be added to a very good designation in order to account for the wide range of condition this classification presides over.

Good
A book in good condition will show considerably more wear than grades which precede it and is usually not preferred by collectors unless it is highly rare or of considerable historical significance.


CONDITION GUIDELINES FOR POSTERS

Near Mint: This is our highest grade. A clean poster with bright, fresh color that may have the slightest of wear, but was generally unused, or used once and then carefully preserved thereafter. Acceptable signs of wear may include fold creases with slight fold wear, compression marks (from theater use), and/or fine pin holes. No significant holes and no paper loss.

Very Fine: A nicely preserved poster with bright color, though showing general signs of use. Acceptable signs of minimal wear may include minor fold separation (with slight color/paper loss), compression marks (from theater use) and creasing, minor tears along edges, and/or fine pin holes.

Fine: A poster with fresh color, still nicely preserved, but with general signs of use, comprising a greater accumulation of the flaws acceptable in higher classifications. Such signs may include tears at folds with some paper loss, tears at edges, creasing, fading, writing, compression marks, and/or pin holes.

Very Good: A poster with still fresh color but obvious signs of use and wear, including tears, paper loss, minor holes, hazing or foxing, writing, light creasing and/or staining.

Good: A poster with faded color showing significant signs of use, including tears and paper loss, brittle paper, tape, creasing, writing, hazing/foxing, and/or staining of image area. Could probably use restoration.

Poor: A poster that is damaged and/or worn, including any or all of the flaws described in higher classifications, and in need of restoration.
