Used books

  • Used books


We do not separate used books from new books on the website. However, you can easily identify used books and also ascertain the quality of a used book by following the simple steps in this blog


To find out if a book is new or used, first click on the book. In the new window, the status of the book can be found in the 'Product Code' and also in the 'Specification' tab, as shown below.




How do we grade used books?


Grading used books is something we take very seriously at English books and games. Wherever possible we give both the copyright and edition date of the book so you will know how old the book is. Every used book is carefully inspected for missing pages, pencil or pen marks, tears and general wear. The book condition is then graded for quality.

We do not sell books that are missing pages or text. However, we do sell books that are missing supplementary material, which accompanied the book when new, such as posters, playing cards, dust covers etc... In these instances we make every effort to provide you with this information in the 'Specification' tab.


Used books are graded using the following criteria:


1) Used book - like new

    This book is unused. Dust cover is intact, with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds of any kind. May contain remainder marks on outside edges, which will be noted in listing comments.


2) Used book - excellent

     Book may have minor cosmetic defects (such as marks, wears, cuts, bends, or crushes) on the cover, spine, pages, or dust cover. Shrink wrap, dust covers, or boxed set case may be missing. Item may contain remainder marks on outside edges, which should be noted in listing comments. Item may be missing bundled media.


3) Used book - good

     All pages and cover are intact (including the dust cover, if applicable). Spine may show signs of wear. Pages may include limited notes and highlighting. May include “From the library of” labels. Shrink wrap, dust covers, or boxed set case may be missing. Item may be missing bundled media.


4) Used book - average

      All pages and the cover are intact, but shrink wrap, dust covers, or boxed set case may be missing. Pages may include limited notes, highlighting, or minor water damage but the text is readable. Item may be missing bundled media.
