  1. We grade our books conservatively;
  2. We describe our books as extensively and accurately as possible;

  4. 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.

Very Good: A book that shows some signs of wear on either the binding or paper. The defects will always be noted.
