About this Item

N.d., but circa 1948. Each century is represented with a folding card that houses a leporello containing 16 color fashion plates of costumes from that century. The folder contains brief descriptions of each card. Thus there are four folders and four leporells, with a total of 64 fashion plates. In addition there is an oblong brochure, also in leporello form (with four leaves) which provides a broader overview of the four centuries of fashion history. All this is housed in a box whose overall appearance (without consideration for condition) is of an earlier era. Each fashion plate is 5.5 by 4 inches, or 14 by 10 cm, and these are in fine condition, as are the folders within which they belong. The only condition issue of this very scarce and attractive set is of the box, which has chipping along the edges of the decorative paper that was pasted to the boards, and two edges, one of the lid, the other of the inner box, have been replaced so as to restore the functional integrity of the box. The 9 by 6 by 1 inch box, taken by itself, is thus in fair to good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 001651

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.
