About this Item

N.d., circa 1920s. Small folio-sized. 32 by 26 cm. 97 leaves with color vignette images of foods (fruits, vegetables, soups, desserts, meats, fish, etc.), followed by a few blanks. The images, essentially clip art, are only on the recto, between eight and a dozen items on most pages, for a total of 853 vignettes. (The vignettes are numbered 1 to 853.) No title page -- the front cover serves as that, and this was intended as an utilitarian catalogue and nothing more. The bright, "generic" illustrations were clearly a source for food businesses to order what pictures they needed for signage, advertising, menus, mailings, etc. more economically than hiring an artist to do original artwork. All the sheets have a protective coating that give them a glossy sheen. They are held together with screws in a stab binding. Scarce, with no other copies located on OCLC or elsewhere. Other than the top sheet which has soiling, the sheets are very clean. Light foxing to the endpapers, and typical wear from use to the boards. Hardcover. Paper pastedown. Cloth spine.

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.
