Glossary of Printing Terms:
X-Lib

Ex-Library

Identifies a book that was once the property of an institutional or corporate library.

Usually there are noticeable marks and stamps on the binding and/or in the text.

It may also have library card pockets, and it often shows considerable wear and/or rebinding.

For collectors, it is worth considerably less monetarily than a book that has not been owned and marked-up by an institutional library.
