New: A new book, never used.
As New (AN): Although a used book, it should appear unread with no flaws, just as when it was sold new.
Fine (F): Should have no flaws, a perfect copy of a used book. Mint: Another term for Fine.
Near Fine (NF): May show a small flaw, such as shelf wear, but nearly perfect and unread.
Very Good (VG): The broadest category for used books, this describes any average used book. May have small flaws, and has probably been read, but should appear overall clean and attractive.
Good (G): Will probably have significant wear or damage, although is still intact. Suitable for reading, but not necessarily a good gift copy. The old saying in bookselling is "good ain't good."
Fair: Another term for Poor or Reading Copy: Heavily worn or damaged, a poor book will be readable but not attractive.
Binding Copy: This will be the complete pages of the book, but the binding has been broken or damaged to the point it will need professional rebinding
