If more than one book is purchased, we will consider providing some discounts.  If you are a re-seller, please let us know, and we will let you know what wholesale discounts may be available.

Most of the books are in reasonably good condition.  Exceptions to this general rule are described.  For your information, we may have used some words unfamiliar to you:

 

Frayed (the leather or cloth is worn down);

Loose (refers to binding; this means that the page or cover is still intact but it is loose);

Torn off or Off (when page or cover is not intact);

foxing is when a paper becomes brownish.
