About this Item

Very unusual, and beautiful, book press intended for miniature books. N.d., nineteenth century. Dimensions: base is 20 by 10 cm, and with its four rounded legs, it is about 4 cm to top of this base. The two screws that lie onto of the base rise 14.5 cm above the base. One turns the handles to squeeze miniature books between the slabs of wood. The "washers" at the base of the screws are bone rings. In the center of the base top is a rectagularly well, with glass covering decorative tapestry. Bookseller Inventory # 003662

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.
