Description

Early Village Life By Bobbie Kalman First Edition Crabtree Publishing 1981

64 pp. Pictorial boards. Lavishly illustrated. Written for young people, but entertaining and informative for any age. One of the Early Settler Life Series by Bobbie Kalman. Tells of life in the backwoods, how settlers made everything they needed, doctors, newspapers, inns and taverns, and much more. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

The boards and pages are clean and bright.

Lightly rubbed along outside edges No dustjacket, absolutely no goo and glue residue like one finds with most ex-libris books, Stickered on the spine and back board and simple rubber stamp mark inside that reads DISCARD and " Manchester School Library South Windham, Maine." Exlib stamped on the title page, once inside below an illustration and again on the back end page. Library envelope inside.

No grubby fingerprints, pencil marks or dog-ears. I personally believe this book sat on someone's book shelf for the past 31 years, because it looks like it's barely been opened.

Surrender Dorothy. From my bookshelves to your hands, sent with love.

Our Library Doors Are Always Open.

Surrender Dorothy suggests you make a nice hot cup of tea and flop down on the sofa with us!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We prefer PayPal as it's the fastest and safest method.
Cashier's Checks and Money Orders are okay too but only if they are received within four days of your order, otherwise we'll cancel the order and put the item back up for sale.

We BEG you guys, Please... If your Etsy Address and PayPal Addresses are different, please please let us know where you would like us to send your package. We have a real talent for choosing the wrong one.

Returns & exchanges

Returns
We are happy to accept returns in good condition in the original packaging shipped within 48 hours as exchanges only and you agree to pay postage both ways.

Damages In The US Mail.
They happen sometimes.
Although we carefully wrap our vintage breakables in tons of bubblewrap and tons of padding and pack them in sturdy shipping boxes, damages still sometimes happen. *sigh*
Please tell us about damaged goods ASAP. Photograph the damages and send photos to us so that we can work it out with USPS.

Shipping policies

We ship by way of the United States Postal Service only.
Yes, FedEx and UPS are a little bit cheaper, but we find them to be very brutal with our delicates and breakables, so we refuse to play with them.

International Orders
The answer is YES we do ship internationally. Please just ask! There are many shipping destinations on this planet and each one is a slightly different price.

Additional policies

While it is considered customary for many antique and vintage shops to consider offers and dicker prices, our shop simply doesn't.
We've priced our merchandise as fairly as humanly possible. Please don't ask us to haggle.
Thank you.
