About this Item

12mo. 12 by 8 cm. 173, [2] pp. With eleven exquisite hand-colored plates of actors in costume in addition to hand-colored title. Also hand-colored allegorical vignettes on the cover, front and back, and a different one on the slipcase, with elaborate neo-classical ornamentation around the perimeter of both. This is a collection of short plays done by the Vaudeville theater. Vaudeville is a term that has evolved. In the eighteenth century in France it referred to songs or poems recited in a theater, and here it essentially refers to an early form of musical comedy. Scarce, with only institutional copies located on OCLC First Search in Chicago and Morgan. Slipcase and cover with moderate soiling, less on cover proper. Scattered foxing. Plates, though, are clean.

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.
