We are a small team of devoted book and art collectors who enjoy digging through piles of books every day. We work within our parent company TheBookBundler.com.
We clean, repair and preserve all books prior to shipping. Every book is an authentic treasure, we choose based on rarity and unique individual attributes.
Stamps - We stamp 1 book in every order with our seal of authenticity. Our stamps change every year. Typically we stamp the book we believe to be the 'centerpiece' of the order. Individual book orders are always stamped.

We sort and grade our books into two main categories of used books, Premium Used and BEATER Used.
PREMIUM Used - Books are clean and may contain a previous owners name or inscription on the inside. Occasionally books will contain small or inconsequential page creases or bends, small 'nicks' or inconsequential tears on pages or small bar-coded inventory stickers, otherwise these tend to look very close to 'new' even if the books are older.
BEATER Used - Ex-library books and books with cosmetic wear to cover. We make sure all BEATERS have all the pages and are still readable. These typically sell for 30% less than our Premium Used boxes.
