About this Item

Each card measures 18 by 12 cm. George Knight and his wife were a successful team of theatrical producers and performers during the late nineteenth century, known for farcical comedy, and "Over the Garden Wall" was a comedy written by George Knight which their troupe had as a stock item, playing regularly, often on tour, over several decades. The work, though, was not set in stone with an unchangeable script, but rather, songs and comedy bits would be added and discarded constantly, as the performers, time and venue changed. One of the cards depicts lovers kissing by a wall, and the other, a bull ramming into the man and hurling him over the fence. The two cards are meant to go together -- that is the source of their merriment -- and the antics supposedly give a little taste of the theatrical production. Bookseller Inventory # 004344

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.
