Have a question about this?  Some cheap paper just puckers and warps, but the lower corner appears to have a stain and/or liquid damage.  Either is RWAP.

ETA - the page end damage on the first pic is similar to some I've seen from being shoved in a box with other books and squished around.  Lighting can be tricky in pictures, but unless theres stains or liquid damage the ugly pages are not in themselves unpostable.

Yes, what Denise said.  Look for staining and/or stiffness.  There are things you can tell with a book in hand that an image won't show.

The texture of the page feels different once it's been wet and dried, too.

Yowza...that's a pretty nasty looking book.  I hope you get your credit back.
