About this Item

An unusual, complete copy with four pages of cut-outs, two in the front, two in the back, untouched and as issued! 8vo. 24.5 by 18 cm. Unusual pagination, with leaves numbered 1 to 6, then A to F, for a total of 24 pages, plus the four leaves with pastedown cut-outs, and text also on the wraps. With twelve chromolithographic plates, plus chromo illustration on the front and back cover. Essentially this is two titles. The first title covers the parts of an upper middle class home of the era, including the lawn and then the parlor, the dining-room, the bedroom, the nursery and the kitchen, and finally, a diversion entitled "The Path to the Woods". The text through this section is rendered in prose, whereas in the second half, concerning trades, everything is in verse. The trades include the shopkeeper, the carpenter, the mason, the painter, the miller, the druggist, the watchmaker, the gardener, the carriage builder, the shoemaker, and the ship builder. Moderate soiling to the cover. Short closed tear down fold of wraps. A few minor chips and other wear. A few leaves with light marginal dampstaining. Bookseller Inventory # 003750

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.
