1890s Book Abbe Constantin Ludovic Halevy Pub Caldwell


This is a sweet little book with a gray spine with silver embossing. Part of the cover has yellow and red flowers on a blue background. It is hardback. The book was written by Ludovic Halevy, author and playwright. (1802-1883)

I can't find this book, with this same cover but there are many of these books out there with numerous publishers. This on is published by HM Caldwell NY circa 1890. Many of these sellers are selling them as first editions as well - be careful out there, there is no way that there are this many first editions from different publishers.

This book is 6.5 x 4.5" and has 204 pages. The cover is worn some, the pages are yellowed but still soft. There is a little spine separation at page 16 & 17 but the pages feel secure. There is some pencil writing on the inside cover but no other writing. There is one illustration at the first of the book.

Shipping from United States

I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING.
