About this Item

Oblong, 21 by 27 cm. Leporello or accordian format, with ten panels, most with two sample swatches. Twelve of these sample sheets are dedicated to geometric patterns -- lines, curves, chevrons, diamonds, etc. The balance are taken up with foliage, animals (butterflies, dogs, fish, buffalo. The latter part has two panels with four sheets each, and two with just one larger sheet, and these last two are done on a black background as well. The album is a handsome collection, probably done by an advanced student. Marie Rust's name is inscribed twice, and so we assume she was the creator of the patterns and the album.

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.
