Description

Perfect for the coffee table in your retro living room. This is the "HOUSEWIVES' GUIDE TO ANTIQUES" by Leslie Gross. It is a first edition 1959 Exposition Press New York publication. The illustrations were done by the author. It is in very good shape and very sturdy. There are a lot of drawing type illustrations along with some photo pages, even a few blank "note" pages in the back for the reader to leave observations, etc. It measures approx. 8" x 5.5". Great vintage condition. An interesting look at women's history. Will ship media mail.

DOING GOOD: 10% of the purchase price will be donated to a Nashville area non-profit that moves homeless Veterans and their families into permanant housing and assists them in becoming productive members of society. www.wearebuildinglives.org

MULTIPLE ITEMS SHIPPING: I WILL adjust the shipping/handling for purchases of more than one item! You may convo me first, or purchase the items and I will issue a refund for the difference!

SHIPPING in USA: When listing items, I estimate shipping. If I charge $5* or more than the actual shipping cost I will send you a refund after the item ships. (The difference of $5 or less covers the gas/packaging etc. incurred beyond the actual postage. I usually underestimate.) It is difficult to always assess actual cost on items. I do the best I can and will be happy to work with you if you are interested in multiple items! Items will be packed carefully with tracking and depending on value, insurance. NOTE: Shipping quoted is for the lower 48 states. For Hawaii or Alaska please message me for a shipping price quote.
