About this Item

Gift inscription on front pastedown from author HERVEY ALLEN to DWIGHT FRANKLIN (illustrator of, among other things, some works by TALBOT MUNDY) The inscription, dated in 1923 is somewhat amusing, though hard to read: "To Dwight Franklin / from Hervey Allen / in memory of the girl / with the dark (two illegible words) eye / and her hair (illegible) / down in ringelets / (address and date)" The book itself is an amusing short poem about Captain Kidd, the alleged pirate, with a clever pun at the end. Illustrated with woodblock illustrations. The binding (pink cardboard) is broken along the spine and liable to detach at any moment and crumble. Internally, a very good copy with typically slightly darkening paper. Illustrator Dwight Franklin's bookplate is on the front pastedown. He must have had an interest in pirate stories because the bookplate shows a pirate type ship and he later wrote a book dealing with pirates. Bookseller Inventory # 010218

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
