About this Item

N.d, circa early 20th century. Oblong, 25 by 18 cm, 10 by 7.25 inches. With fourteen illustrated pages, mostly in bright color, all by the same hand of gifted amateur by the name of Winnie Buckman. The drawings are both typical subject-wise of teenager artist's and friendship albums of the day and yet mostly on the highest level of what one tends to find in such albums. On the FEP is written in pencil "A prize awarded for art by Miss Oxley". This probably means that the blank album was given to Miss Buckman as a prize, and it indicates that her talent was recognized in her small girlhood community, Illustrations include one of a clownish man with big feet, Dutch children following geese with a windmill in the background, a pierrot strumming a banjo, the silhouette of an eighteenth century lady and gentleman, a boy and his dog, a woman wearing harlequin tights awhirl in dance, children at the shore, a few Mabel Lucie Attwell style infants, a silhouetted eighteenth century lady with parasol and actual fabric used for the front of her dress, portraits of a man and of a woman wearing a kimono, and a harbor scene. Generally clean. Bookseller Inventory # 002406

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.
