Weren't you taught to NOT stick out your tongue? Well, here could be the reason why! A doctor can tell if your tongue is coated and bilious, if you have syphilitic lobulations, or herpetic inflammations, so keep it in your mouth! I love the period patina to the page and muted coloring of this anatomical antique plate. This illustrates the jaw, teeth and different infections and diseases that come in this area. Plus there is a page or two that were found attached to each other, still bound, though free of the book. Cool!
The page measures 7.25" X 9.75". There is the mellowing of the page color from it's almost century of existence, and discoloration around the edge of the page, plus some dots in random spots throughout. And there looks to have been something pressed between the pages, and you can see in the photo that there is tiny debris in the binding between the two pages ,but this adds to the aged patina that gives the piece history. This will arrive plastic wrapped to cardboard and protected in an envelope to assure you will see it in the same condition as it is now.
As always, your shipping charge will be what the post office prints on the stamp for parcel post. If I quoted high, even on multi-item purchases, I will refund you the difference back to your PayPal account. If I quoted low- you've got a deal!
Your item will be shipped within 7 days. I recycle all of my shipping boxes and even some envelopes, as well as 97% of the packing material. Since it is Seattle, I often use Starbuck's boxes, and because I have a commercial bakery in my home, you might see a chocolate box or two. If you have concerns with my reusing these boxes, please communicate it, and I am sure I can find another source for your purchase. I ship USPS, generally parcel post. I estimate the postal charge when I list an item. If I charged you too little, lucky you! I will pay the rest. If I charged more than Parcel Post fees, I will opt for faster delivery if the amount covers that price. Any amount over will be refunded back to you if you paid by PayPal. Even if it's two cents. It's just what I do.
I always get orders sent out within 7 days. It is usually 2-3 days. Insurance is only used on larger, or more breakable items, and it is mentioned in those specific items. If you wish to have insurance, mention it in the buyer's notes. Often , the price can be covered with the amount you paid in shipping. If it is more, I can always send you a bill via PayPal. After I have sent off the package, I will send you a note to confirm.

Returns & exchanges
I want you to be as excited when you open the box as the moment you purchased it. If it isn't what you were thinking, contact me and I will make sure you end this transaction satisfied. If the item arrives broken, I might ask you to present me with a photo of the damage, but then return the cost of the item and shipping for that item. At 2950 sales, I have had 3 items lost in the mail. If you have waited what you feel is a reasonable time, please contact me, and I'll go through my tracking to see if there is anything I can do.
I love to ship internationally, so contact me about any item and I'll add your country to the shipping options. On out of country purchases, only PayPal can be used as a form of payment. Thank you!
