Q:What are my options when the quality of a book is disatisfying?
A:Obviously we try to describe each book as good as possible. But we look different to a book of 60 years old than a book of 140 years old, than suddenly a tear seems smaller.

Q:In what way are the books quality rated?
A:Next to the objective descriptions, such as publication year, number of pages etc, every book is judged on content, cover and completeness. All books are rated from 1 to 5 stars, 5 stars being perfect (content and cover) or complete (completeness of the book) and 1 star being poor or incomplete.
