About this Item

A beautiful near miniature stone book, measuring 113 by 73 by 10 mm and weighing 8.1 ounces. We particularly like the contrast of the spine and corners, suggesting of a half calf binding. There are other details to note, such as the indentation for the "text block" and the bands on the spine. The two stones also couldn't be more different, with the yellow-ish stone nearly a solid color (with tiny vanilla bean flecks) and the darker stone rich in veining and highlights. A few very tiny edge chips do not diminish this stone book, which we would still grade fine, or near fine. Sleek and smooth, this would make for a wonderful paperweight. Dating is elusive, as is the exact provenance. Bookseller Inventory # 005120

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.
