About this Item

N.d., circa 1880s. 16 pages, plus cover, with the artful combination of origami paper folding and chromolithographic die cuts to create pages of artfully arranged imagery, or combining the two media into a single pictorial image. While such albums were not that at all uncommon, this one is done with singular neatness and what would seem an intuitive aesthetic sense that results in ineffably delightful juxtapositions. A good amount of the paper work involves a weaving of two different colors of paper, and this can lend an abstract element to the picture created as well. Some of the imagery is religious in nature, with a crucifx at the center of the first page, but most is quite secular and pretty, with many children populating the imagery. Images include one of Bismarck, a Japanese girl or young woman in a kimono. eighteenth century clad children, a martini glass, and one photograph of a girl. The book is 8 by 6.5 inches in its dimensions. Bookseller Inventory # 002412

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.
