As the nights draw out, and spring approaches, what better way to spend an evening than with a good book. Nothing beats a ‘real’ book in my opinion. They are tactile, they have a scent and a personality, unlike books available on e-readers.
Pipe and Slippers aims to deliver to you good quality pre-loved books, at reasonable prices, with honest descriptions of condition, and actual photos of the books in our store. Unless otherwise stated, each picture is of the actual book for sale, both front and back covers, so that you can see the general condition and read the cover notes for yourself.
As you will see, our stock is biased towards transport, military and nostalgia, and are graded as follows:
A – As new, unread, un-creased spine(paperbacks), complete with excellent dust jacket, if applicable, and in excellent overall condition
B – Used, but very good condition. Some minor blemishes or marks, good dust jacket if applicable
C – Used, average condition, as you might pick up in a charity shop or ex libris. Slight marks or damage to corners. Perhaps torn or creased dust jacket if applicable
D – Poor, seen better days, obvious signs of damage or marks, perhaps missing dust jacket
E – Sad, very poor condition, but can’t justify throwing away!
A plus sign (+) indicates ‘better than’ status, therefore C+ would mean better than C grade but not good enough to justify B grade.
Original published price is included if available for comparison.
PB = Paperback, SB = Softback, HB = Hardback
A brief description is included where cover notes are not available.
DVD’s are also available in some sections.
