About this Item

4to. 25 by 16 cm. 34 pp. 14 of these pages are of cartoons that are meant to make edifying points. Most of the other pages are filled with ice cream fountain concoctions, with a few pages worth of text that is full of tips and encouragement. Topics include such things as "cashing in" with motorists, ideas for capitalizing on cold and hot weather, being business-like instead of smart, using the window to sell, etc. The use of cartoons was obviously inspired by the huge surge in popularity of comic strips in newspapers at the time, while the business-pointers are very much in the American can-do business philosophy of the Dale Carnegie school. Soiling and wear on the cover, and some other indicia of use within, such as a small closed tear in a margin, some creasing, etc. Still a nice copy of a scarce piece of culinary ephemera.

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.
