The books was listed as New, never used, pristine, clean copy. When I opened the package, the front and back covers are bent, the spine is well creased, and it's obviously been read several times. But it's not worth the hassle and expense to return it so I'll mark this down as a lesson learned.
ALWAYS read the seller's reviews before buying from them. They had several reviewers listing exactly what happened to me and I would have chosen a different seller if only I had read the reviews. :(
