Bad Service from Seller

So I regularly buy and sell books on I have worked out a fairly reliable system for choosing sellers. I compare: price and condition, total feedback score, any negative recent feedback, and location. Generally this works in my favor, however it failed one day back in September. I ordered from seller free state books a book that they described as being in very good condition for $0.02 and $3.99 shipping, all recent feedback was a 4/5 or 5/5 and located three states away, awesome. What I received was a book covered in highlighter and assorted markings. Out of several pages all but two paragraphs would have excessive highlighting or marks.

From amazon's page: Used - Very Good: A well-cared-for item that has seen limited use but remains in great condition. The item is complete, unmarked, and undamaged, but may show some limited signs of wear. Item works perfectly. A bit pissed I left the following feedback as a 2/5 "While there is no physical damage to the book there is a good deal of highlighting and writing in the first section of the book. This wasn't listed in the description, had it been I would have ordered from someone else. You can still read the text, but it is across large sections across numerous pages. Debating ordering a clean copy from a different seller." Never got any kind of response or apology.
