Re: [BKARTS] Book-cleaning problem



Your friend has an additional problem.  Any collectable book is worth about
80% less without the dust jacket.  The extremes that dealers go to describe
1/16 inch rips are amazing. He's probably best off describing them as "reading
copies" and then cleaning the residue.
