About this Item

N.d., circa 1900. 13 leaves of card stock onto which the once popular poem by Clara Smith was written by hand in a calligraphic script and watercolor decoration ornaments four leaves in addition to the front cover. The artist signed the watercolors with BAMcLeod. While the sweet, doggerilish verse may not suit modern tastes -- it is bound to be viewed with the same condescension as the Joyce Kilmer poem, "Trees" -- it did inspire commercial book illustrators, and this manuscript version more than holds its own with published versions, and the warmth of the watercolors, unmediated by a printing press, immeasurably enhances the visual pleasure these vignettes of the natural world are bound to impart. While we know nothing of BA McLeod, strangely the comparative anonymity of the artist adds an element of interest and mystery to this as a document. The production is bound amateurishly, but firmly, with a strip of parchment, and holes were punched into the bound margin presumably to allow the book to be housed in a looseleaf binder.

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.
