About this Item

N.d., circa 1870. Unpaginated, 12 pp., including wraps which are bound in, followed by 33 leaves, all blank, of card thickness, giving the slender volume some thickness. 18 by 12 cm. Scarce, with only one copy located on OCLC (at the University of Leiden). The plates depict Punch and Judy, with a baby, throwing the infant in the air, Judy clubbing Punch, a circus dog biting Punch's nose, a hangman and Punch. Accompanying the rather elegant chromolithographs, which are framed with a decorative puppet stage box, is a narrative poem telling of the doings, and this is rendered in Dutch. The deep blue morocco has corner gilt ornament plus a gilt centerpiece, with five raised bands on the spine and gilt ornamentation in the compartments between bands. The binding is more modern and is pristine. Two leaves of the Geschiedenis have minor paper repairs in their upper corners. Some light offsetting from the plates. Bookseller Inventory # 002626

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.
