About this Item

In interesting snapshot of the world of automobiles, the year of the first Model T (and thus essentially preceding the revolution in auto manufacturing). 8vo. 21 by 16 cm. Close to 100 leaves, about two-thirds if not more filled with material. Scrapbook includes many pages of cut-out images of the year's models of automobiles, plus newspaper clippings on automobile news, including the prominent races of the year -- most importantly, the New York to Paris race of that year. Regarding this race are photos of the some the obstacles encountered such as Siberian snow. A few leaves have a children's scribbles of planes, a boat, a soldier, certainly done later by someone other than the album compiler. The wrap covers are detached. Bookseller Inventory # 003218

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.
