About this Item

Highly unusual miniature book shaped liquor box. N.d., circa 1900. 53 by 31 mm. Inside the box is a miniature scotch bottle, complete with a cork. The bottle is now empty, but it looks as if it once did have the real stuff. We have seen and had book shaped flasks, but never before this have we experienced an object quite like this. The closest is a miniature box containing a perfume bottle. We can imagine that this novelty might have been a party favor of some sort, but we know nothing specific about its origin other than it was made in Germany notwithstanding the English title, which of course is meant as a joke. Light soiling on the front cover. Fading to the leather. Bookseller Inventory # 005079

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.
