About this Item

Handsome desk set of faux books! N.d., circa 1900. Each volume is a near miniature, measuring 8 by 6 cm. With the bookcase, the height of the set is 11 cm, and the width of the case is also 11 cm. The volumes' red spine labels say "Stamps", "Pins and Clips", "Erasers" and "Rubber Bands". The set may or may not have come with these utility supplies, but the volumes are now empty boxes. It is the ensemble, with the matching inclined bookshelf, that makes this such an appealing antique item. The faux leather mimics the texture of a thick morocco rather well. Setting off the borders of the volumes boards, as well as the side edges of the bookshelf, are bands of gilt vine decoration. Corners minimally bumped. Light wear generally. Full Faux Morocco (Paper pastedown). Bookseller Inventory # 004338

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.
