|HOME||BOOKS FOR SALE||COLLECTING TERMS||SEARCH||BLOG|
Images of damage to an upper spine, ranged from best (#1, upper left) to worst (#9, lower right).
Assuming that the spine is representative of the condition of the rest of the book, here is how I would rate these books:
1. Fine (no bumping damage at all)
In addition to being bumped, all the books in this second picture show fraying to a greater or lesser extent. I would describe these as follows:
Images of damage to corners, ranged with the best (no damage) at top left.
1. Fine. Corners are perfectly square and undamaged.
5. Fair. Corners well-bumped, edges worn, cover appears bowed.
