Brian Stableford - Journey to the Center. Daw, No. 492, mass market paperback, 1st printing, 1982. Cover art by Ken Kelly..VERY GOOD TO FINE condition. Square spine with NO creases, extremely faint cover hinge crease, minor edge wear, and previous owner's seal embossed on first page. See photos. Paperback books are strictly graded according to the following guide:
FINE (F) Books graded Fine are unused and like new without
any flaws. A Fine book is comparable to a new paperback on a bookstore shelf.
Pure white pages are not required for this grade, however, as a slight
darkening of the page with age is inevitable.
NEAR FINE (NF) Books in this grade are also unread and like
new, but have some very minor imperfections, generally due to storage or shelf
wear. For example, the book might have slight edge wear, a small chip at the
top or base of the spine, light rubbing of the cover or some other minor flaw.
These are extremely high quality books.
VERY GOOD TO FINE (VGF) Books graded VGF are high quality copies
that show minor signs of use. This is the highest grade for any book that
appears to have been read. For example, if a book has a light crease down the
spine from being opened, but no other significant flaw it would qualify as VGF.
Paperbacks that were read carefully one time then put back on the shelf, will
generally be in VGF condition. This condition is also used for unread books
that are not quite About Fine due to some more noticeable flaw.
VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+) Books in this grade show more obvious signs
of use but still appear to be above average used copies with no significant
creasing, spine roll, page browning, or other serious problem.
VERY GOOD (VG) Books grading VG are typical used books and will
exhibit general wear (but not heavy wear). Flaws common to this grade include
minor cover creasing, light spine roll, minimal water stains, spine fading
(from exposure to sunlight) and peeling cover lamination. This grade covers the
widest range of condition and it is expected that some books grading VG will
appear to be somewhat better than others.
GOOD (G) Books in this grade will show heavy signs of use but
will still be complete and intact, including both covers, spine and all pages.
GOOD MINUS (G-) Any truly poor books (i.e., torn, taped, or
heavily warped) receive this lowest grade.
Additional plus and minus signs are occasionally used to
indicate relative strength within a grade.
