TITLE:   The International Blade Collectors Association Price Guide to Antique Knives

AUTHOR:  J. Bruce Voyles

EDITION: Second Edition


PUBLISHER:   Krause Publications






CONDITION:  Very Good               Has minor dog earing on lower right front. Fraying of plastic coating of the rear cover. Condition is consistent with a 20+ year old book that has been read and referred to repeatedly. It does have several pages of advertising at the end of the book, one of which is loose at the binding.




Grading Standards:

FINE:   No defects, as new when first purchased (Like New)

NEAR FINE:  May have 1 or 2 very minor defects. 

VERY GOOD:   Used condition, same as above only it may have two or three more minor defects such as small tears, scratches, small stains to covers, or minor tears and creases to inside pages.

GOOD:  As above only it may have a split hinge, larger tears to covers, soiling or staining of covers, whatever the defect it should be described in detail.

FAIR:   As above with folds and tears throughout, markings to content.

POOR:   As above with loose bindings, missing and torn pages throughout.


ADDITIONAL INFO:   I am a knife guy and I also like books, but I’ve never sold them before so I’m not sure about grading the condition of used books. I pulled this grading system off the web. This is a great book with good information in it, but I need to downsize my library as well is the size of my knife collection.
