All books are pre-owned. Books are complete and are in normal antiquarian state, unless otherwise described. Small imperfections, such as a stamp, slight discoloration, a pictorial ex libris or a name on one of the pages, are not always mentioned. The condition of prints and posters will be described in detail in the confirmation mail.
We use the following international standard to indicate book conditions. Please note that we focus on the condition of the cover. Retrobook does not sell book covers in poor condition, that means a cover so damaged that it is only of interest to a buyer who seeks an impression of the book cover. A fine book cover is as new but allowing for the normal effects of time on an unused book that has been protected. A fine book cover shows no damage. A very good book cover may show some small signs of wear, but no tears and no darkening or fading. A good book cover describes the average used worn book. The book may show signs of wear or shelf wear and/or may be slight sunned or faded. In general a good cover will have no tears or dog-ears. A fair book cover shows signs of wear or shelf wear, will possibly have small tears and some fading or is sunned. In general the cover is not chipped, or it will be noted.
Shipment worldwide is from the Netherlands. On all prices on the website we add PostNL mailing costs. An order of more than one book can be combined. In general, we will ship the order the same day the PayPal transfer is received. However we cannot guarantee that a buyer will receive the order on a specific day. If the order has to be sent as a parcel, we will use a track & trace option. We ship the order well packed and will sent prints and posters in a poster roll. A buyer may ask for additional services. For example a registered shipment or a shipment to another address. We guarantee that we deliver all orders to PostNL or any other postal services, but exclude any responsibility of the shipping risk.
If a buyer of print / poster requests a certificate of authenticity (COA), we will forward a COA describing the item and presenting our indications to state that it is an original print or poster as described on the website. In case the quality of the book or print/poster differs significantly from the way it was described on the site and/or in the return mail, the client can inform us by e-mail within 5 days after receiving the order.
