I have an unpostable copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in hardcover.
It looks like some sort of liquid was spilled down over the top of the book, close to the spine. There's some slight "crinkling" on the pages due to this, some discoloration along the tops edges of the pages, but not on the pages, themselves. The dye from the outer cover of the book has faded off onto the inside of dust jacket (the outside of the dust jacket looks perfectly fine), and the green dye from inside the pages has faded off onto the white page beside them. The binding is still good and tight. It's still very readable, just not so pretty anymore.
I will offer it as a freebie with any order from my bookshelf. If anyone's interested, just PM me! :)
