About this Item

The madcap joys of downhill, skating, curling and apres-ski when active sporting winter getaways in the Alps were first catching on big-time among the moneyed leisure class in the twenties. Insouciant flappers and all their uninhibited pleasures and spirit captured in this arch ABC! 4to. 27 by 18.5 cm. Unpaginated, 56 pp. Dancing, spooning and cocktails are as much a part of the antics as the more official sports. Based on the illustrations of curling, the very same people who were doing it then are still at it -- and they didn't look any younger then, nor had sweeter dispositions. The illustrations are rendered in black, gold yellow and white, with occasional touches of red. Light soiling to the paper pastedown. Cracked hinge at "S". Still, about as nice a copy as one is bound to find. Hardcover. Paper pastedown. Cloth spine. Bookseller Inventory # 004839

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.
