About this Item

N.d, circa 1910. (No. 19 of series.) 25 elephantine leaves or plates (15.5 by 12.5 inches, 43 by 33 cm), including title page. Plates 451 to 475 in the series. All with cartoon stories and verses accompanied by color illustrated panels in all kinds of configurations on the page. Sometimes just two different illustrations, sometimes as many as, or even more than, a dozen. Highlights from a purely visual gag, as well as perhaps historical point-of-view, is the plate entitled "De Utilite des Aeroplanes", which pokes fun at the perils of early plane aviation, and another plate that features a flying machine that resembles a grasshopper, but the satire, parody and humor is far-ranging and boundless. Plates are all clean and binding is tight. Boards, with illustrated paper pasted onto board, has considerable wear, soiling and foxing, with some chipping and minor edge loss of the paper. However, the illustration of a bow in a clown outfit is still attractive and indeed, a component in making for a handsome package overall. Bookseller Inventory # 001427

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.
