About this Item

94 pp. Supposedly 1,200 copies printed on Linweave Text "of which this is the last". With red cellophane which is used as overlay to several images to reveal something entirely different underneath from what one sees without the cellophane. Full of risque vignettes and verses, some by well-known writers and humorists such as Ogden Nash, and with plenty of nudity, both photographic and drawn, to tweak the prurient interests of men and perhaps some women. A worthy precursor to Playboy Magazine, and one which really conjures up the urbane sophistication of Art Deco thirties habitats we imagine occupied by Nick and Nora Charles or other couples in the frothy screwball comedies of the era. Both naughty and literate, and these two qualities are each intensified by the presence of the other. The Dutch Treat Club, incidentally, was a real club that was formed in 1905 by illustrators and writers who met sociallly for lunch. At the time of this publication, members included of all people Norman Rockwell, who resided then in New Rochelle. The back of the book includes a directory, in reverse alphabetical order, of members. This copy has a fair amount of shelfwear. Some rubbing along the gutters with a bit of mull revealed. Inside tight and clean. Bookseller Inventory # 001565

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.
