About this Item

The drawings are all rendered with an uncommonly precise hand, if by an amateur. Oblong, 17.5 by 25.5 cm. 29 pp. of drawings, ten of which are watercolored, the remained, ink work. Some of the ink work is credited as having come from other sources, and so the artist here copied or adapted from these sources, which include the artist Hansi, or cartoons from the Daily Chronique or The Cartoon. All the watercolors bear no such crediting, and so it is assumed that these and a few of the ink drawings are entirely original. Since it is obvious that the artist, probably this J. Cheuillotte (whose name is on the front cover) had a proficiency with drawing, the purpose of the album might well have been to share some favorite cartoons with others, or to hone his own craftsmanship through emulation. The depictions of the Germans is less about showing them as sinister as much as simply absurd. Light wear and finger soiling here and there. Bookseller Inventory # 003255

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.
