About this Item

Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC First Search. Oblong 4to. 24 by 29 cm. 56, [2] pp. Fourteen of the pages are bright color plates generally depicting the smart set riding in beautiful vehicles, but also an illustration of the company's expansive headquarters and garage located in Kennington, a neighborhood in South London next to Vauxhall. The text presents both matter-of-fact info about the company's taxi services -- charges, policies, etc. -- but also some lighter breezer fare on such topics as a trip to the Channel or Coventry. Red cloth cover heavily soiled. Endpapers, title and final leaf grubby. Otherwise, lower band of leaves with hint of waviness that might come from a passing exposure to moisture, and perhaps a touch of soiling here and there. A few other finger smudges, minor closed tears and light wear besides. Notwithstanding these issues, a very handsome sales promotion for a cab company that was not just selling itself but also the notion of the horseless carriage as a luxury alternative to the horse drawn vehicle not yet fully vanquished in metropolitan use.

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.
