About this Item

The bookcase cabinet is elegant and striking, with its ornate carved wood floral ornamented pediment and floral and foliate border framing the glass door. This small piece of furniture stands 33 cm to the top of the pediment, and if we measure to the top of the "box" or case itself, 26.5 cm, and the case is 11 cm deep. The glass door can be secured with the original metal key. The legs holding up the case about 4 cm from the ground are black metal and have typical Baroque detailing. The titles are almost beside the point, but they are all titles intended for a young adult readership. All the volumes have elaborate Renaissance Revival or Rococo frilled gilt decoration on their boards, front and back, and spines. We can not say that the case/cabinet was made for these particular volumes, but it most definitely well-suits them and the volumes fit perfectly within. All the bindings were published by Lehuby of Paris and they generally have steel engraved plates. They are 16mo and 14.5 by 9 cm each. Bookseller Inventory # 005162

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.
