About this Item

N.d., circa 1930s. (Date given of 193- in one of the illustrations, and the idealized women in many of the blotter illustrations are hennied platinum blonds as were the thing in the early 1930s.) 4to. 30 by 22 cm. 37 pp. plus 12 separate samples in two different sizes. All the samples are folded down their center. When open, the larger samples are 30.5 by 40 cm, oblong, and the smaller ones, 23 by 30 cm, oblong. The idea here was for a large, splashy pictorial onto which a company could print its contact info and other promotional material, either on the picture itself or more often, the flip side. A common use of these blotters was as menus such as one might find at a diner. The blotters might alternatively serve as a top sheet of a brochure, or as pictures for a calendar, attachments to the ad proper, etc. The pictures on offer vary widely, and can be divided into categories such as scenic views, cheesecake pin-ups, genre scenes (foxhunting, dining, folksy Norman Rockwell, etc.), cutesie juvenilia (babies and small children doing various things), sporting, holiday-oriented, repros of evocative artwork. Many of the illustrations straddle more than one category. Probably the come hither nymphets -- think a young Joan Crawford, Marion Davies or Jean Harlow -- and the bucolic prospects are the most salient types, and one might surmise, the biggest sellers. Unknown is the exact name of the company that produced this catalogue. The catalogue and separate samples are all clean and show the most gentle of prior handling. Bookseller Inventory # 004416

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
