About this Item

An obscure, charming children's book containing two narrative poems, the first, "The Animals' Snowball Match", the second, "The Wooden Soldier". The booklet, 12mo, 24 pp., was a modest production, for better or worse, but accompanying it are the original ink drawings which are more impressive in their un-printed form. Drawings include images of storks, bears, walruses, hippos, elephants, monkeys, and tin soldiers. There are twelve pieces in all, each with a drawing on board or heavy card, and these cover all the illustrations, including the front cover, of the book. Scarce title, with no copies located on OCLC, and the brochure contains no copyright or authorial information, suggesting that this was perhaps privately printed for a business as a marketing gift of some sort. N.d., circa 1900. Bookseller Inventory # 002455

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.
