About this Item

N.d., circa 1918. 8vo. Unpaginated, 60 pp including prelims. Full of wonderful chromolithographic plates, 30 in all, depicting women and soldiers of World War One. The illustrations have a naive charm that efficiently capture the fashions, culture and ways of the era, and with the verse celebrate light-heartedly the good works done by women who ran the canteens that brought a little comfort and hominess to soldiers wounded or during respites from the front. Here we find the Sallys memorialized in the Kern musical starring Marilyn Miller just two years later, the ballerina that could have inspired Chiparus or Erte and who launched countless Art Deco bookend figurines, the matrons later spoofed in thirties comedies. With its dark olive-hued paper and block lettering, the book should also be appreciated as a cohesive production. Minor soiling to the paper pastedown. Bookseller Inventory # 002055

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.
