About this Item

German homemade book of cartoons relating to a soldier's canteen during the Second World War. Oblong, 15 by 21 cm. 18 leaves. Original text and illustrations confined to rectos, with informal comments by others on four versos. The work is a light satire of German efficiency, precision, obediance, and the like. There is not really much sense of the national convulsions of the period. The illustrations, rendered in colored pencil and crayon, are suffused with charm. In one, an alarm clock is hitting itself over the head. Others could easily fit into the light cartoon strips of American newspapers of the era (Blondie and the like). The verse is fluid, but its narrative thrust is somewhat diffuse. It is the illustrations that matter. Front cover has repaired crack. On front the crack line is still visible, and within the board has been stabilized with a strip of paper that doesn't match perfectly color-wise. Other crease lines, soiling, and wear on covers. A few loose leaves. Minor edge dampstaining and browning to pages within. Card, bound together with twine. Bookseller Inventory # 003291

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.
