A price-clipped dust jacket will typically cost less then an unclipped copy of the same title.
A substantial amount of the value of a collectible book resides in the condition of the dust jacket. Some estimates place this as much as 60% of the overall value. A price-clipped copy will be disclosed in our book desciptions. A price-clipped book will typically cost less then an unclipped copy of the same title. How much less is determined by the relative scarcity of the book.
