We realize that buying books online is difficult because you don't
have the luxury of actually seeing the book before you make your decision.
At Franklin Books, we strive to make your purchases as risk-free as possible. We
follow four basic rules:
- We grade our books conservatively;
- We describe our books as extensively and accurately as possible;
- We pack our books tightly and securely for shipping.
- If you feel a book does not match our description, it is returnable for a full refund.
The following are the terms used to describe our books:
Mint - As New:
The book is in the same immaculate condition as when it was published and
most likely will be in the original publisher's shipping box or shrink wrap.
Normally, our highest rating. A Fine book approaches the condition of As New.
Any superficial/minor fault will always be noted.
A book approaching FINE with minor defects which will always be noted.
A book that shows some signs of wear on either the binding or paper.
The defects will always be noted.
Describes the average used worn book that has all pages or leaves present.
All defects will be noted. We rarely ever list a book in Good condition unless it is of
sufficient rarity to be the best available on the market.
Describes a book that has major flaws. This copy may be soiled, scuffed, stained or
spotted and may have loose joints, hinges or pages. We do not sell books that are in Fair/Poor condition.
If you ever have any questions about the condition of a book, we strongly encourage you to
call or email us and we will be happy to pull the book and provide you with any information
you need to make an intelligent decision on your purchase.
