1930 Liberty Magazine Calendar (1973 REPRINT Leslie Thrasher Art)
1 1930 Liberty Magazine Calendar (1973 REPRINT Leslie Thrasher Art)
Coshocton, Ohio Liberty Library Corporation 1973 soft cover Very good 
I wish this were the original calendar from 1930, but it's very obvious that it's not given the advertising info on the front for Akron Industrial Metals Co. But it's still very cute and even threw recipients a bone since 1975 and 1930 shared common dates which meant it could actually be used. Fortunately it was not used, or all the pages may have been discarded. Every month shows a bright color image featuring cute kids rendered by Leslie Trhasher and original advertising on the back. The calendar measures 7"x12-1/2" and has a metal hanger at the top. Only fault is a small stain over the "y" in Liberty on the front.

2 A Cruise Round South America 1930 (S.S. Samaria)
Boston, New York etc. Raymond & Whitcomb Company 1930 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a rather scarce travel guide from the Golden Age of Travel. It's very clean and tightly bound with a small bit of isolated edge wear and a small crease at lower spine. Measurements are 6"x9-1/4" with 48 pages. Many wonderful black and white photographs of sites to see, but also a picture of the ship, the S.S. Samaria. The itinerary shows that the cruise began from New York on Feb. 1, 1930 and ended up at New York on April 4th. In between passengers visited Cuba, Panama, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, the Argentine Republic, Brazil, Barbados, Martinique, and the Virgin Islands. Only 280 passengers would be accommodated on the ultra lavish ship. No price for the cruise -- you had to contact an agent!

Be An Artist At the Gas Range; Successful Recipes by the Mystery Chef (1936)
4 Be An Artist At the Gas Range; Successful Recipes by the Mystery Chef (1936)
Longman, Green & Co. 1936 soft cover Very Good 
If ever a cover screamed 1930'as this one has to be it -- what a strong graphic, both front and back! The booklet was offered in bookstores by Longman, Green who published books by the Mystery Chef -- who, incidentally, lived quite well given the photo at the back of the booklet of his New York living room! But that's a disgression -- the booklet also proved to be, as this one was, an advertising vehicle for the local gas company. It measures 5"x8" and has 96 pristine pages of recipes which are viable in today's kitchen.

Beautiful Windows By Judd (1930's)
5 Beautiful Windows By Judd (1930's)
New York City Draper Fixtures by Judd Circa-1930's soft cover Very Good 
I have a soft spot for interior design items so of course this one jumped right into my hand! Its very attractive with a green suede-like cover printed in gilt at face. The paper is coated and the pictures are quite lovely -- vignettes of rooms showing windows augmented by curtain hardware used as decoration. Judd did't sell window treatments -- they sold upscale window hardware. The booklet measures 6"x9-3/4" and 32 illustrated pages. Each spread describes (much text) something different such as cornices and swinging cranes, how to decorate windows in specific rooms, how to pleat drapes, and how to measure. Lovely!

Stunning catalog filled with vintage cars which were the finest of their time and remain so today. Every page is in color printed on quality coated paper. Inside the catalog is a partial list of the cars which were to be sold. The sale doesn't appear to be an auction though, as they called it an exhibition sale. The oldest cars on the partial list were a 1929 Cadillac Dual Cowl Paeton and a 1929 Duesenberg J. Bohman & Schwartz Berline. The catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 14 lavish pages.

Cheltenham and London Ed. J. burrows & co. Ltd. circa 1930's Third Edition soft cover Very Good 
A little toning around the edges is all that detracts from this attractive map which shows a tape attached to the map with a grommet for easier reading. The map is surrounded by local ads which add greatly to the sense of the era. Map measures 6-1/4"x10"closed and 23-1/2"x25" fully opened.

Compliments of Mackinac County (Michigan, 1930)
9 Compliments of Mackinac County (Michigan, 1930)
Michigan Mackinac County 1930 soft cover Very good condition 
This was very likely a freebie back in its day, targeted to vacationers ready to explore Michigan's Upper Peninsula.The booklet is filled with interesting ads which I enjoyed more than I usually do. The best one is on the back cover, The Grand Mackinac Hotel, where guests could clip-clop off the veranda for a horseback ride. Thomas' Restaurant put the date, 1930, on his ad which is how I was able to date this. Other ads include hotels, cottages, restaurants, shops, transportation and garages for car problems. The booklet is clean, nice and tightly bound. Only fault is a vertical crease, which is pretty common. Booklet has 32 pages.

12 Fortune Magazine August, 1935; Chrysler, Sherwin Williams Paint, Saratoga and Philippine Gold
New York Fortune-Time Corporation August,1935 Volume XXII, No. 2 Card cover Very good conditon 
This is a very nice clean issue. The first page of the text which is printed on heavy, uncoated paper shows a bit of toning to edges, due to a color ad next to it. The magazine is big measuring 11-1/2" x 14" and has very good ads, plus these topics for articles:Chrysler; A Farm In Illinois with paintings by S.R. Badman; Women in Business II, but a stand alone about office workers; Philippine Gold; Saratoga with paintings by Sanford Ross; and especially for Ohioans, the Sherwin- Williams Paint Company

13 Fortune Magazine July, 1935 (Anheiser-Busch, Women In Business, Restoring Williamsburg, U.S. Smelting & Refining)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XII, No. 1 soft cover Very good 
Very clean, nice issue of one of the star magazines of the 30's. The photography is excellent, as are the articles and the magazine's design. Three topics grabbed my attention -- a colorful piece about Anheiser-Busch and its bottled beer, Part I of a story about women in business, and a look at Mr. Rockefeller's renovation of colonial Willamsburg. There's also a piece about the cotton industry, one on U.S. Smelting & Refining and a profile of Harry Hopkins. Magazine has no real defect of note. It measures 11-1/2"x14" and has 140 pages. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but shipping may be higher than stated due to size. Contact me with destination for actual quote.

Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
14 Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
New York Time-Life 1934 Volume IX, No. 2 soft cover Very good 
Yesterday I got thirty Fortune magazines from the 30's, so if you don't see what you want let me know and I'll see if I have it. Fortune was one of the most beautiful magazines of the Depression era and still retains interest in its articles as well as its design. This time two topics caught my attention -- the ever controversial Father Coughlin and wine production in the United States. There's also stories about radium, industrial designers, U.S. Rubber and more. The magazine is very large at 11-1/2"x14" and has 142 pages. Only faults are a small chip to top front edge and minor wear to very bottom edge of spine which does not impinge on the binding. Very handsome and no label. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but extra shipping is required due to weight and size. Same for U.S. priority. U.S. media mail is just $2.00 as stated.

Germany Baden and the Black Forest Vintage Travel Brochure
15 Germany Baden and the Black Forest Vintage Travel Brochure
Reichsbahnzentrale fur den Deutschen Reiseverkehr Soft cover 
Beautiful richly colored graphic to front of this vintage travel brochure. It's not dated, but it came to me with a large number of travel items dating from the early 1930's. I would guess this in the range of 1928-1931. There's a very handsome and very clean, crisp fold-out map at back. The brochure measures 4"x9" and is illustrated with black and white photos printed on quality coated paper. 44 pages.

Gragey and Mason Millinery Real Photo Postcard Storefront Women & Children
16 Gragey and Mason Millinery Real Photo Postcard Storefront Women & Children
Unknown Very good 
This real photo postcard shows the storefront of a millinery shop the name of which appears on the outdoor valance at the top and also on both windows at front. Four women -- likely the milliners and their help and three children add interest. Unfortunately, the card was never mailed so we have no idea where this shop was located, but we CAN date it, as the stamp box shows that it was printed on AZO paper and the symbols show that it dates from 1910 to 1930. This is circa 1910. The divided back was printed upsidedown.

Life At the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago (Oversized Advertising Booklet in Original Envelope, 1930)
17 Life At the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago (Oversized Advertising Booklet in Original Envelope, 1930)
Chicago Moody Bible Institute 1930 Soft cover Fine in good envelope 
Very seldom does old paper survive as splendidly as this oversized 1930 college booklet for the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. It is in very fine condition and retains its own original mailing envelope on which former owner wrote her name. The envelope has some edge tears, but has protected the item wonderfully. Booklet is very handsome, printed on cream paper and measures 9x12-1/2." Photographs run in filmstrip form down the outer edges of each page, with the exception of portraits of staff and founder. There are 29 pages in all with much information about all aspects of life at the school, including such quirky things as the fact that in 1929 students consumed 9,420 dozen eggs! This one needs just the right home.

Los Angeles County (Booklet 1930's)
18 Los Angeles County (Booklet 1930's)
Los Angeles Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles County No date circa 1930's soft cover Fine 
The colorful cover of this attractive booklet is definitely an eye catcher and the condition is superb. At first glance it appears to be a travel guide, but is not. It's a sort of state of the union telling both residents and tourists all the many reasons to be glad they're there! Oddly, it has no date, but the last year quoted for research and statistics is 1936. Black and white photographs abound and are printed on coated paper. Covers all facets of county life. Measures 5-1/4"x7-1/2". An added bonus is a flyer tucked inside from a San Francisco restaurant called The Challenger offering an economy plate luncheon at thirty cents! Two choices -- sausages or spring lamb, both with sides.
