About this Item

16 pp of text (pp 7 to 23) followed by 40 brightly colored plates (13 by 9 inches, or 31 by 23 cm) on hard card stock showing traditional dress of the various regions of France. Each plate is accompanied with a separate sheet of light paper with a caption. As an extra bonus a prior owner pasted (lightly) eight cards with hand-colored images of women in French peasant dress. These cards are 9 by 13 cm. The print technology used for the plates coming with the book was photo lithography. The text comes with a still useful bibliography of costume books. This copy is disbound but otherwise the plates are all in fine condition. Minor wear, creases and like to some of the caption sheets. DJ with minor corner chips and now protected with mylar. As to the cards, they have some minor soilage (light fingerprint, dust, etc.). One has a small corner chip. Presumably they came in two envelopes which are also pasted to the rear endpaper.

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.
