About this Item

8to. 26 by 19 cm. With 32 more or less finished watercolors or pencil sketches mostly of Japanese costume, scenery, floral display, boats and architectural structures. Since almost all the drawings are dated in Russian, we can assume the amateur artist was Russian, but nothing else is known of his/her identity. Most will find the costume watercolors the loveliest of what is in the album, and there are five of these. But the floral arrangements, still lifes and panoramas do not lack for charm. The level of artistry ranges, and it is conceivable that a few of the works were copied from other sources. Also included is one separate sketch of Russian costume. Wear to the cloth. A small hole in one sheet. Bookseller Inventory # 003103

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.
