I believe, that if you look at a piece, you can tell the condition.? Great.? Excellent.? Good.? Poor.
In addition, the ML website has a listed of all current ML titles and authors on their homepage.? Its great.

I don't know what you mean. Perhaps I'm being unclear in my question.?
Catalogs, pamphlets, and other paper ephemera are more likely to degrade quickly than are books. Often the paper was extremely cheap -- many times newsprint may have been used. It was highly acidic, prone to drying, brittling, and foxing.?
So are you saying you don't give it a condition word such as Very Good or Fair, you just describe the defects??
