About this Item

N.d., circa 1830s prior to 1837 when William IV passed away. N.p. Each card is 62 by 56 mm. The cards each contain six lines of text. Above the portrait the dynasty to which the monarch belonged is given. Below the portrait is the monarch's nme, and then his birth and death years, when his/her reign began and how many years he/she reigned, except for the card pertaining to William IV, who was still alive, and his card states, "Long Life and Happiness to Him, and prosperity to his people". The cards were surely meant as an educational tool for children. The cards come in a marbled paper covered box, probably the original issued by the publisher. The box bears a date of 1834, relating to an almanac, which was probably issued by the same publisher, but regardless is general corroboration as to the dating and the origin of the deck. The box has one edge which is torn to bottom but the box is still functionable. Moderate soiling on the cards. Bookseller Inventory # 005078

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.
