About us

BookDay started in 1997 as an antiquarian bookstore on the Vrijdagmarkt in Antwerp, opposite the Plantin Museum. Since then, we have been selling old and rare books, small antiques and works of art via the internet and from Easter 2024 also in our store in Redu, Village du Livre, rue de Transinne 35, Belgium.

List of used book conditions:

  • As new: means that the book is in the state that it should have been in when it left the publisher.
  • Fine (FN): is "as new" but allowing for the normal effects of time on an unused book that has been protected. A fine book shows no damage.
  • Very good (VG): describes a book that is worn but untorn. For many collectors this is the minimum acceptable condition for all but the rarest items. Any defects must be noted.
  • Good (G): describes the condition of an average used worn book that is complete. Any defects must be noted.
  • Fair: shows wear and tear but all the text pages and illustrations or maps are present. It may lack endpapers, half-title, and even the title page. All defects must be noted.
  • Poor: describes a book that has the complete text but is so damaged that it is only of interest to a buyer who seeks a reading copy. If the damage renders the text illegible then the book is not even poor.
