Delivery and Ordering Information
How do you know if a book is new or used ? Simple. If it doesn't say 'new', it isn't. What is it like if it doesn't say anything about the quality ?
If nothing is mentioned, it is good, clean secondhand quality, nothing missing, nothing falling off. You can also look at the picture. We photograph all of our books and give accurate descriptions of the books for sale if there are blemishes - or good features. The image is of the actual book being sold - unless we have more than one in stock, in which case we describe and illustrate the least good example, so you may get one that is better than described or illustrated.
All of the items offered for sale in the OFFPRINTS section are PB unless otherwise stated.
