About BookRanger

When viewing book listings on the BookRanger site at biblio.com, you might notice a frequent redundency of descriptive terms such as "clean", "bright", "square", and "unmarked".
This is because we do not buy books blindly in mass purchases. All of our books are hand-picked for such qualities as condition, subject matter, scarcity, and overall appeal. On rare occasions, a book's physical condition may fall below our normal standards, due to scarcity of the particular title or edition. In any case, we make every attempt to use only the descriptive terms which accurately depict the particular book offered for sale.
