About this Item

A beautiful set of Bayntun full red morocco bindings for Carroll's final classic! WIth the original cloth boards and spines bound in. 8vo. 18.5 by 13 cm. xxiii, 400, xxxi, 423 pp. (Without ads.) These are ex-library in the lightest, and least intrusive manner thus that few would consider that status much of a demerit. Both volumes have the bookplate the College of the Holy Names on their front endpapers -- this bookplate resembles essentially that of a private collector. The spines have the faintest trace that there once was a code or call number lettering there -- the tiny spot(s) are only visible under the brightest of light. On the title page there is in the upper corners the institution's name blindstamped onto the page in small lettering -- this is quite inconspicuous. And finally, on the copyright page there is a small stamped number, again something that can easily escape one's notice. From the beauty and condition of the binding, we would conjecture that the set was donated to the college by a collector or his estate, and once in the college's hands, was virtually never touched.

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.
