About this Item

N.d., early 20th century. (There was a later version printed in 1945 in Zurich.) Title, followed by 18 color plates depicting various animals -- flamingos, an owl, mice, a stork, pelicans, monkeys, a parrot, a peacock, a squirrel, a turkey, rabbits, swans, hares, ducks, a cat, a dog, a snail. Accompanying each illustration is a rhymed couplet. The color of the plates is rich; the style, simple and winsome. The paper stock, alas, was acidic, and so the pages are brittle, with some cracking resulting, never affecting the pictorial images. A few discreet repairs with inconspicuous achival tape along hinge of a few of these leaves. Still a scarce, and delightful, title. The front cover has some minor loss to the paper pastedown, and the paper is somewhat soiled, rubbed, worn. Bookseller Inventory # 002664

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.
