More Boxed Books-H.M. Caldwell

Most boxed individual books are rather ordinary where the labeled box contains a box that neatly fills up the box. Of course, some boxes themselves have elaborate designs and illustrations. Today I thought I would show an individual boxed book which is on the bizarre side.

As some of you may know, I am slowly working toward putting together a history and bibliography of the H.M. Caldwell publishing house. I hope to complete it before I keel over. It will take the same format as my website.

Anyway here is a Caldwell book. The box has a labeled flap but otherwise is quite plain. It measures 9.5 x 5.

The box inside however is quite unusual. It is Over the Nuts and Wine written by James Clarence Harvey. It was published in 1906. Look at its shape. It is a 3D representation of a bottle of wine within an ice bucket. The original glassine dust jacket was found within the box. This 134 page book has a different "toast" on each page.

Quite an interesting boxed book.


  1. Fascinating. When did he publish his edition of Abbe Constantin, the 1862 novel?

  2. I think what yοu publіshed was vеry logiсаl.

    I mean, I ԁon't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "More Boxed Books-H.M. Caldwell" is a little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo's homе
