About this Item

Sumptuous car catalogue of Italian automotive giant rendered in English. 4to. 30 by 22 cm. 26, [8] pp., plus four mounted color plates, representing the four elements (earth, water, air, fire) as exemplified by modern vehicles -- cars for earth and fire, a zeppelin for air. Surveys the history of FIAT, its growth in production and its physical plant, followed by a long list of the racing medals it has won and a list of its many royal and high noble patrons. The next section goes into some detail about the car's features, especially internal specs. Finally, after a page devoted to illustrations of models from 1900 to 1913, there is a five page spread of the then new models. Besides the bright plates and the profuse illustrations interspersed throughout the text, the luxuriant nature of the catalogue is signaled by the mounted round medallion on the cover that mimics majolica. Light edgewear to the wraps, with a flattened dog-ear in a corner. Otherwise, clean and crisp. Bookseller Inventory # 004942

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.
