 Shipping label from this brilliant, brilliant bookstore "Wonderful Books By Mail."  Which is exactly what it is.

I ordered a copy of Henry Fairfield Osborn's Men of the Old Stone Age which arrived today from "Wonderful Books By Mail" (via AbeBooks.)  The shipping label is a stratigraphy of text -- retro Western horse photo print and the bookstore's name taped over it. 

This copy of the 1925 printing is tagged as having belonged to the USNTS: United States Navel Training Station, Farragut, Idaho (1942-1946.)  Ah, books in motion.
