About this Item

A most unusual hand-made book. 8vo., 56 numbered leaves, plus acknowledgment page. Each leaf is written upon only on the recto side. What is most extraordinary about this album is that a high school student executed it with so much proficiency and dedication. While sketchbooks and artistic competence were far more prevalent then compared to now, this album is still a remarkable achievement for a youngster, and surely few of her contemporaries were so inspired by the English syllabus to attempt anything close to what we have here. The actual illustrations contained in this album are pleasing without being exceptional; it is the ornamentation, the borders and the calligraphy, that se this apart. These show an unusual sophistication for a adolescent, and they are applied not only tastefully, but also with a real panache. Wordlessly they create an atmosphere of reverence and delight, and they coax us to read the verse contained within. The material is organized by freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year, surely to track the syllabus, and one can assume that the compiler was selecting the pieces that made the deepest impression. There are some misspellings and the material is offered in condensed form. The leaves are clean and fresh. Minor wear to the binding. Bookseller Inventory # 002323

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.
