Fine. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 4048 p. Drug Facts & Comparisons (Hardcover). Audience: General/trade. "Like new" (as in never read) but slightly shelf-worn hardcover (w/o dustjacket, as published). Facts & Comparisons (1999) 4096 pages. Original owner's name neatly handwritten on first blank page, however it is quite evident that the book has never been read. Inside it is immaculate and shows no reading wear, pages crisp and clean, unmutilated and except for the owner's name on the first blank page, unmarked. However the outside of the book is slightly blemished by very slight edge and corner shelfwear and rubbing to covers, simply the consequence of being shelved and re-shelved. Merely superficial cosmetic blemishes. Except for the original owner's handwritten name, the overall condition of the book is consistent with new stock from an open-shelf book store (such as Barnes & Noble, for instance) wherein otherwise "new" books (particularly one as bulky as this) might often show a little shelf wear. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. Selling on-line since 1997a. #DF&CWKH53.
Good. "Like New", but ex-reference (hospital) library hardcover (w/o dustjacket, as published). Lippincott (updated 2007 printing) 3144 pages. Belonged to (non-circulating) hospital reference library. No external markings indicating it was a reference copy, sim "Like New", but ex-reference (hospital) library hardcover (w/o dustjacket, as published). Lippincott (updated 2007 printing) 3144 pages. Belonged to (non-circulating) hospital reference library. No external markings indicating it was a reference copy, simply a stamp on the title page and a pocket glued to the back endpaper. Since it was a reference copy and not a check-out copy ("not to leave this room"), it is immaculate and shows almost no wear. Reference is unblemished except for very light edge and corner shelfwear to covers (as one would expect to see with such a large, heavy book), consequence of being dragged across the bookshelf. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, in nearly unread condition. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. Selling on-line since 1997. #DF&CWKH61a.
