After the guide was essentially finished, it occurred to me that some translations of  "bibliospeak"  might also help.  Anything that seemed too obvious, too obscure, or inapplicable to Tolkien collecting was not included.
  • Grading scales and for hardcover and softcover books.
  • Damage Descriptions:  for all books, some softcover specific terms, and some notes on dust jackets and slipcases.
  • Glossary of fairly common general descriptive terms.
  • Abbreviations, and the "Anatomy of a Book".
Further information regarding specific books. Incidentally...I am downsizing.  Still collecting, just setting different limits, lately.
