2 France Illustration Magazine July, 1948
Paris Revue Hebdomadaire 1948 soft cover Very good 
Very large magazine measuring 11"x15", published in Paris in the FRENCH Language. The cover photo shows a scene from the United States Republican Convention in Philadelphia that year. The magazine was political, but it also discussed books, science, art, and cinema among other topics. The stories in this issue cover the politics Of Finland and their elections; Rouen, the tourist port on the Riviera; the ransom of liberty; the clouds of Cuba; electricity; and the Grand Week of a horse race. Magazine is clean and nice with no label. Only faults are a small tear to outer edge of front cover repaired by me at back with non-browning archival tape and a bit of light soil to back cover.

Irish Hospitals' Sweepstake Ticket 1953
5 Irish Hospitals' Sweepstake Ticket 1953
Ireland 1953 Very Good 
I haven't see one of these since I was a kid. My Irish grandparents used to buy them, but it was a very mysterious thing. Not only did the ticket itself look scary to me, but the whole thing was shrouded in mystery. Now I know why -- they were illegal in the U.S.!The Irish Sweepstake was not like today's lottery where numbers are drawn. Each ticket was assigned to a racehorse, so it was really a form of gambling. By the 60s the U.S. lightened up on it, but sales were already declining by then -- helped along by a report via Fortune magazine that the original motive to support Irish hospitals had morphed into goodies for for-profit businesses. The ticket is in fine condition and will arrive in a plastic sleeve backed by cardboard. It measures 3"x3-1/2". Every Irish-Americn needs one for auld memory's sake!

It also includes a horse show prize list as a separate tri-fold brochure .Both items are very clean and the graphic on the cover of the main program is wonderful.Program measures 6-1/4"x9-1/4" and has 40 pages.

Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
13 Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
Pittsburgh, PA D. Arnheim early 1900's Very good 
Arnheim's liniment is best known for its slogan "For Man and Beast." It's an example of truth in advertising because Arnheim's peddled his product for both horses and people. The reverse side of the card shows a glowing testament of its efficacy for people, as well as a list of maladies it could help -- rheumatism, lumbago, bruises, sprained muscles and tendons, inflammatory sore throat or quinsy, diseases of the air passages, pains in the side, back or loins, cramps or pains in the bowels, neuralgia, headache and swelled face from toothache. Two cards have the exact same copy, but the third (little girl with the hat) offers a testimnonial too. They all measure 3"x4" and are quite nice, save toning to outer border of the one with the little boy on the fence and a small corner crease to the pink one.

Le Cheval Bleu (The Blue Horse)1942, Hale, Nathan
15 Hale, Nathan Le Cheval Bleu (The Blue Horse)1942
France Flammarion 1942 card cover Good 
Why the original bookseller felt a need to put the stock number on the front corner of this cute little booklet is a mystery, but I can't remove it. Other than that and a little wear to edges, however, the book is clean and tightly bound. The pictures are charming and the text is in FRENCH. This is number 11 in a series for children. I have several pf these and will eventually get them all listed, but if you are looking for a title let me know and I'll see of I have i., Just use the contact button and I'll get back to you.

Broadway Bill (Little Big Book 1935), Hallinger, Mark
16 Hallinger, Mark Broadway Bill (Little Big Book 1935)
Akron, Ohio Saalfield Publishing 1935 first edition hard cover Very Good condition 
I grew up in Akron, Ohio where this book was published. So many of our books when we were kids came from Saalfield. The company had lots of ties to Hollywood which is why this one is typical. They also published LOTS of Shirley Temple books, apper folls etc. . This book was tied to the Columbia film of the same name starring Warner Baxter, Myrna Loy, Helen Vinson and Walter Connolly. The book is illustrated throughout with black and white stills from the movie. It's a small book measuring just 4-3/4" wide and 5-1/4" tall and part of Saalfield's Little Big Books. Book is tightly bound with no names or writing and clean pages which have toned -- almost of the Big Little Bigs toned due to the acidic paper used. There's little exterior wear, but nothing really egregious. Overall it's a nice little collectible.

Postcard Grandstand For the Paddock, Miami Jockey Club, Romer, G.W. (photographer)
20 Romer, G.W. (photographer) Postcard Grandstand For the Paddock, Miami Jockey Club
Chicago Curt Teich Co. Unknown Circa 1920's Linen Very Good 
Beautiful linen card with just a tiny crease to tip of upperright corner. It's a gorgeous Florida day and the crowd is huge and well dressed. Look closely in the foreground and you will see a lady attireed in a slim skirt and red cloche hat -- VERY 20's. The Miami Jockey Club was relatively new in this picture shot by G.W. Romer, as it opened its door in 1925. But here's the odd part -- In 1927 a Florida Supreme Court banned on betting on horses which in the lurch for the 1928 season. In 1929 though, they came up woth a new system called the "buying option." To bet you bought a stock certificate (a postcard), and if the horse won you got a dividend. If the horse lost you were bankrupted. Betting became legal in 1931. Card is clean and unused and will arrive in a plastic sleeve.
