24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
1 24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
U.S.A. American Preservation Unknown date Unknown edition Disbound Articles Very Good Condition 
I found these disbound articles in a box of Architectual Review Magazines which I bought at auction. I almost tossed them out until I realized how worthy they are. Each of the 24 focuses on a particular area within a state located anywhere in the country. They all derived from American Preservation magazine, so the color photographs are stunning. Each article is pretty long with many images. I wish I had more room to show them. Areas are these: New Orleans Lower Garden District; Providence, Rhode Island; Salem Massachusetts; Eutaw, Alabama's Greek Revival Architecture; Galveston, Texas; Mizner's Eden Palm Beach's Flamboyant Architecture; Brownsville, Texas; Waterford, Virginia; Helena, Montana; Columbus, Georgia; Madison, Indiana; Eureka Springs, Arkansas; Key West, Florida; Jacksonville, Oregon; Mt. Auburn in Cincinnati, Ohio; Manchester area of Pittsburgh; Savannah, Georgia; Powelton Village, Philadelphia; Saratoga Springs, New York; Crested Butte in the Rocky Mts.; Detroit's Woodward East; Oakland cemetery; Galena, Illinois and Bay View, A Summer Resort in Michigan. All are clean and stapled. Will still ship for $2 media in the U.S. as always.

Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
4 Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
Atlantic City, New Jersey H.J. Heinz Company Circa Early 1900's card cover Good-plus condition 
This is such a charming catalog, published to accompany an antiques and art exhibit on Heinz Ocean Pier in Atlantic City, "the seadside home of the 57 varieties." I'm surprised that there is no date, but I certainly can't find one. The clothes, however, offer a good clue. There were 162 items on display, many of Asian origin, but not all. The guide book measures 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" and has a few black and white photographs throughhout. The one I showed is the only damaged one -- loss of upper corner which does not impinge on the integrity of the image. Two wonderful color scenes inside -- one at the back of the front cover showing the beach and the second inside the back cover showing the Heinz Model Kitchens in Pittsburgh, PA.

East Hampton, New York Guild Hall Museum 1987 Card cover Fine condition 
I bought this in Michigan, so it's not surprising that a gift inscription on the bottom of the title page reads, " To---- and ----, So nice to have you in Ann Arbor." Other than that there's no defect. Crisp and clean as a whistle. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 36 pristine pages. Many black and white photographs show off mansions, family homes, vacation homes -- even an aluminum beach house. The text is lengthy and seriously addressed which deems it a collectible.

Washington D.C. U.S. Department of Commerce; National Oceanicand Armospheric Adminsitration; Ocean Survey 1975 Edition 13 Card cover Good folder, fine map 
Nautical charts are interesting and this one is huge. The folder is a bit toned and has a couple small abrasions -- one at upper left hand corner at front and one on back of the folder at the middle left. Both sides of it offer extended information. I opened the map to its length and measured it at 15" x 57" long (see photos). The map is pristine with no tears to folds -- no defects at all. The map's scale is 1.40.000 nautical miles.There's also a brochure inside with a 1975 tide table for Long Beach Island and vicinity published by Sandy's Sport Shop of Surf City, New Jersey.

Nine Florida Brochures Titusville, Sanibel and Captiva, Sanlando Springs, Seminole County, Daytona Beach Shores, New Smyrna Beach, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Florida Turnpike (1960's)
12 Nine Florida Brochures Titusville, Sanibel and Captiva, Sanlando Springs, Seminole County, Daytona Beach Shores, New Smyrna Beach, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Florida Turnpike (1960's)
Florida Various publishers 1960's soft cover Very good 
I got all of these from an estate which dated back to WWI. Everything I bought was something that held meaning for the man who owned it. This trip to Florida appears to have been the vacation of a lifetime, as these are the only travel brochures he had. Normally I would list them individually, but decided to keep them intact for old time's sake. Only one brochure is dated, but it's easy to discern that they are all from the 60's due to the clothes and hairstyles and the phone numbers which have word prefixes. All are in color except the turnpike one and the Daytona Beach Shores. The latter has black and white photos of many motels.

Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
13 Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show 2004 catalog (and Newspaper)
USA UBS Main sponsor 2004 February 13-17 Card cover Very good 
This is not an auction catalog. The treasures are placed in booths where vendors answer questions, offer information, and in the end seal a deal that make both seller and buyer leave happy. What's interesting of course is the items presented in the catalog as advertising. All are on golssy paper and in full color. The newspaper was from the Palm Beach News highlighting art, jewelry and antiques not only over the counter, but also in seminars. A few titles are these: The Inside Story -- Behind Some of the World's Great Jewels; The Connoisseur's Heart -- the Joy of Living With Antiques and Art; and Collecting Faberge. The catalog shows a bit of wear to cover's edges, but is clean and tightly bound. There are some names written at the front, but none cause a problem. The catalog measures 9" x 11" and has 83 pages.

Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
14 Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
New York Playbill 1968-80's Very good condition Hard cover binder; soft cover programs Very good condition 
I saw the word Playbill on the spine of the binder and had to have it, especially when I saw that the shows were older, from 1968 to the 80's. There are 14 programs in all, most of which are Playbills from the various New York City Broadway theaters, but there's also a couple from community theaters close by but outside the city, including Jones Beach. Some programs have ticket stubs stapled to them which is always a bonus. New York shows include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie; Plaza Suite; 1776; Company; Sleuth; No, No Nanette; Annie; Peter Pan and more. Very nice find for a theater buff.

Postcard Evelyn Boat Russells Point, Ohio 1920
15 Postcard Evelyn Boat Russells Point, Ohio 1920
Unknown Unknown 1920 Good 
Nice postcard of the popular Logan County tour boat, Evelyn, filled to the brim with sightseers. The card's photo shows an attractive greenish tint and is captioned at the bottom "Evelyn Boat, Russells Point, Ohio." The bottom margin shows evidence of writing in pencil which seems to have faded almost away. The reverse pencil is also fading, but I can make out this much: Dear Mother, I am having a grand time. We went fishing and I caught a little fish. I've been over to Russells Point four times alright. We are going over to Sandy Beach today in a boat. Your Son. " The name is faded. Card was sent to Springfield, Ohio. There is a small flat crease to upper right corner. Card will arrive in plastic sleeve.

Real Photo Postcard Cliff House and Seal Rocks, San Francisco (1940's)
19 Real Photo Postcard Cliff House and Seal Rocks, San Francisco (1940's)
Unknown Location EKC circa 1940's Fine condition 
Very nice, clean postcard which has a glossy finish and a white margin. The back is not divided and there is no writing or stamping. The stamp box shows the logo of the EKC Company. The logo is one clue to the date, as are the cars and the history of the Cliff House. It opened originally in 1858 and then again in 1863, 1877, 1883, 1896 and 1937. Clearly this photo was taken after the 1937 renovation. The hotel perches over Ocean Beach, a site that claimed some 30 ships.Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.
