About this Item

8vo brochure (23 by 15 cm), 84 pp plus wraps cover, profusely illustrated with black and white photos and illustrations and four pages with color. Illustrations are of shoes made by the company, its stores, interior and exterior, windows, ads, models, miscellaneous. The George Keith Company of Campello MA was a successful shoe manufacturer that issued this magazine for almost two decades as a promotional vehicle, combining advertising and trade catalog-like information with articles, poems and short stories that not very subtly related to footwear and the company's products. Although issued for a good number of years, this is a true piece of ephemera in terms of scarcity, with OCLC showing the only institutional holding at the New York Public Library. Its interest lay in the marketing approach, more public relations or like today's infomercial than a blatant ad, in the shoe fashions of the day, and an insight into the shoe trade of the day -- a company's history, culture, etc. Light soiling to the white front and rear cover, with the trace of a name scribbled in blue pencil across the front top. A trivial closed tear on front cover and minute dent affecting its side and some leaves afterward. Otherwise clean and tight. Bookseller Inventory # 002205

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.
