About this Item

Funny dirty fore-edge painting of a Dr. Syntax type playing the violin while screwing a maid! The fore-edge surprise thus relates to the contents of the book. 12mo. 16 by 10 cm. Unpaginated. The fore-edge is unsigned, but it is well done -- one would not suspect that there is a painting when the book is closed. All edges are gilt. The binding itself has light wear but is a striking, handsome period binding. Full Straight Grained Morocco, Gilt Border Decoration. Bookseller Inventory # 004406

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.
