About this Item

Book. Folio - over 12. xi + 208 pp. One of the loveliest of decorative arts books from the early twentieth century, both as a book production as such as well as an exemplar of how to bridge scholarship and research with readability to make something far more than a coffee table book but which is a delight to pore through all the same. Spine lettering has some sunning but still clear. Bumping to cloth corners and squinshing of spine tips, meaning they are pressed towards the text block. Gilt frame decoration on front board bright. Binding is tight. Some foxing on endpapers. Pages of heavy stock linen generally clean, with only a few tiny fox marks in the work's totality, with exception that frontis color chromo plate has moderate foxing on the plate. Overall a very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 000812

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.
