About this Item

Book. 4to - over 9¾. Unpaginated, 92 pp with 21 full page (11 by 9 inch) plates of feminine goddesses of the early twentieth century (the kind of women one might imagine in a Ziegfeld Follies of the day). Other pages, with light verse paeans to these women, also the kind of lines that might have been recited in a Ziegfeld cheesecake production number, surrounded by lovely borders of roses, vines, etc. Front board with some soilage. A small close tear on one leaf and a tiniest of pinprick holes near edge of a leaf near the end. Generally clean and tight. DJ, now protected with mylar, has considerable soilage and a few chips, one being rather larger (2 inches at widest). On the other hand, DJ comes with ribbon "To My Valentine" which is extremely rare. A very good copy overall. Bookseller Inventory # 000797

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.
