Happy Hits

Excerpts from recent online book descriptions:


– Very Good + in god DJ. [A book on John Baptist de La Salle.]


– Slight sunfade to spine end, background color only not the words. It has faded to a light purple color and looks good still with red lettering (not faded).


– A spill stain on the cover dose no damage to the rest of book.


– Book is pretty nice, the dj is kind of ratty.


– So much beaurocratic Bla-bla that I can’t figure who the actual publisher is.

– Page 533 has chip on side of page, no words affected. The rest of book id great and this flaw is not large. The low price compensates for it.


– Spine, edges inside border of endpapers all seem to have soil from smoke.


– Hardback about very good condition (front & rear end pages torn out).


– Like New. May be shiny, in some instances dust jackets are not included, no missing pages, no damage to binding, may have a remainder mark.


– Our feedback rating says it all: Five star service and fast delivery! We’ve shipped four million items to happy customers, and have one MILLION unique items ready to ship today! [Actually at four stars.]


– Not a bad copy overall, but toms of little things wrong with it. Worst fault is a brown stain from pp 64-70 top and bottom edges and in the gutters of the pages, bad on pp 66-7, from a very acid bookmark.


– ******SHOWS SIGNS OF AGING*********************.


– Ugly brown vertical streak on dedication page, neat inscription on front endpaper.


– VERY EX-LIBRARY, STAINS.


– The images are excellent but the edges of pages (in the white) look like someone with coal dust on fingers have paged the book.


– Goof Condition. [My own, thank you very much.]
