Item details

Antique Beautiful Original 1896 W. Atlee Burpee & Co Seed Catalog Cover Page Only. 5.25 x 8.25 Inches (133.35 x 209.55mm) Select Sweat Peas Front Cover - No catalog pages. **Note: I assume this was part of a catalog but could have very well may have been a 1896 supplement or single sheet flyer/advertisement. This is the Original Cover and not a reprint or reproduction. Has reverse interior information and seed offers. Cover was taken from the catalog apparently and found stored-collected in an old collection photo album sleeves. Intact appears cleanly and evenly detached from the full catalog . Interior page has some browning or foxing, front page has no obvious discoloration or wear on the graphics or background color. Some of the white dots on the right bottom corner I am not sure is imperfection of the original printing or lithograph process. Picture against a darker background board, color is a cream white. Color is amazingly vibrant and clear.

No noticable damage, no tears, crease or stains. Will note that slight buckle is from being stored rolled and does lay flat and will frame nicely. Paper is intact and firm but has age wear but still should be handled with some care and caution. Front Identifiers: Top "Lottie Eckford...Copyrighted" Bottom " 6 New Sweet Peas....Painted from nature for W. Atlee Burpee & Co....See Other Side For Special Offer". Interior Title: "Thirty=two Thousand Pounds of Select Peas for 1896"....Bottom: " W.Atlee Burpee & Co., Philadelphia Pa." **See Pictures

Note: Spring is here or soon to be let us hope! Listing this and one other, had two other antique seed covers listed prior and decided to list this now, especially since I am getting that spring planting fever. This of course is highly collectible and often rare Burpee catalog cover. Burpee Seed Companies long horticulture impact and history plus the beautiful art work of it's catalogs. Wonderful for the collector, historical, or for the avid gardener!

Returns & exchanges

For Domestic orders the time limit for refund/returns is 21 days. This is to avoid return request months after a purchase. Also the optimal time to complete a refund is within 30 days. This is partly due to the etsy time limit in offering the most simplists way of direct purchase refunding within the sold listing. It can get more complicated and requires more time and effort once the 30 days has expired. In addition why this is important is I as the seller still have incurred listing and selling fees once the 30 days lapses which normally is not reversible after the 30 days, or at least much more complicated to do so.

Please keep the 21 day time refund limit in mind when purchasing. Return shipping cost paid by buyer. A partial refund may be possible depending on damage or for any unusual reason for returning. For International buyers--please buy with extra caution and care. International refund/returns is strongly discouraged without very obvious or unusual situations.

International orders: Returns are much more limited for International orders- I strongly suggest to be certain about the item you want before buying. If unavoidable and necessary contact me within days not weeks after receiving. No returns/refund after 7 days of obtaining. International returns can be complicated by time and higher costs, All return shipping cost is the buyers responsibility and not part of any refund or credit. Refunds will not be given till the item is received back and in original sold condition.
