The books and products provided on are in general not produced for an oversea's market but for local consumption. The overall quality of books, i.e. the quality of paper, printing, binding is by far inferior to standards in the US and Europe.

Additionally, the books are not always treated too well on their way into book shops. They are often stored in dry and dusty places, packed inapropriately and sometimes even thrown about.

Nevertheless, in many cases these are the only copies we are able to obtain. Of course we always try to pick the best available books, but they sometimes still do not meet expected Western standards.

We therefore have to point out that even though most of our books are new, they should be regarded "used". Where we indicate the titles are "antiquarian" or "used" they may have writting or minor defects.
