About this Item

Large oblong. 14.5 by 11 inches, 37 by 18.5 cm. Nine leaves with artwork, meaning two leaves have two drawings each, the rest have a single watercolor of varying size. All watercolors were done on separate sheets then inserted into grooves neatly cut into the album. Many blank leaves behind those that are used. The watercolors were executed by one hand without question, an Emma S. who was a German speaker, based on the tiny caption, mostly illegible, that is written neatly in the corners of a few sketches (the cursive is antiquated and thus not easy to decipher but the umlaut, rendered with one penstroke, was in keeping with writing styles prevalent in German-speaking lands then). One of the sketches bears the date of 1874, and it is assumed that all were done at about this time. The watercolors are uniformly vibrant and clean. The morocco spine and cloth of the boards are worn, with rubbing along the edges and joints. Bookseller Inventory # 002070

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.
