1. What is the quality of the used books?
The ASC webshop sells all kinds of used books: rare books, special editions, collectors’ items, everything in fact. Most of the books have clearly been used but they are still in good condition. The pages may be slightly dog-eared but the book will not be torn and the cover is in reasonable condition. The books might still have library barcodes and/or stamps in them.
