About this Item

Stationery with four prototype vignettes, each with an allusion to a nursery rhyme. The four nursery rhymes are "Rub a dub dub", "Tom Tom the piper's son", "Mary Mary quite contrary" and "Simple Simon met a pie man". The vignettes are large postage stamp sized, or 4 cm square, and are in color. There appearance is that of color woodcut, but the actual printing process used to produce these is of course not that. There are fourteen pieces of stationery in all, and the stationery page is 14 by 10 cm, and each is folded, resulting in four such pages a piece. Also five small envelopes, so obviously, some of the envelopes, as well as the stationery, was used. We believe, though, that it is likely that there were no more than four prototypes, and thus each is represented. Everything is housed in the orginal box, which depicts a child asleep with fairy tale animal characters frolicking on the child's bed, and a dog jumping out of a semi-open Mother Goose book. This is a most charming juvenilia ephemeral survivor. Other than being incomplete, no notable condition issues. Bookseller Inventory # 003631

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.
