Cincinnati In Bronze (With Slipcase, 1959)
1 Cincinnati In Bronze (With Slipcase, 1959)
Child Health Association 1959 First Edition Stated Hard cover Very Good Condition Very Good Conditon 
Crisp clean gift book still in its handsome slipcase. I've seen this book before, but never in a slipcase before now. The book is crisp and clean as new with no names or writing. The dustjacket has a few little nicks, but overall is quite nice. The photo on front is the Tyler Davidson Fountain, a gift to the city by Henry Probasco in memory of his brother-in-law, Tyler Davidson. It was dedicated in 1871. The rest of the book likewise celebrates all things commenorated in bronze in the Queen City. Book measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and looks great in slipcase which shows no fault. This one's both hard cover booklet and gift book.

How to Build A Better Home / Copper and Brass Research Association
2 How to Build A Better Home / Copper and Brass Research Association
New York Copper and Brass Research Association circa 1920's-30's soft cover Very good 
Very nice booklet oversized at 8"x10-1/2" Though clearly an advertising vehicle for the Copper and Brass Research Association, the contents are most impressive -- NOT a "fluff piece." It's illustrated throughout with both photographs and drawings with the emphasis on the use of brass and copper as an investment for the future -- copper roofs, copper leaders and gutters, brass plumbing, and copper, brass or bronze hardware. Booklet has 31 pages and is clean and tightly bound. The top front edge shows evidence of something stamped on it at one time, but is smudged. There is no date, and few clues, but a drawing of a family in front of a house indicate by woman's clothing that it's 1920's or 30's.

This gorgeous unused postcard is a thing of beauty, a little gift to give or keep. The card is heavy (for a postcard) due to the metallic-looking portions and the padded red fabric trimmed with red ribbon that makes a bow in the upper left corner. The center section shows a Christmas tree beneath which are the words "Merry Christmas." The outer frame is a bronze color and the center is gold.

11 Faber, Ursula A.: Breyer, Mrs. Henry W. Sr. Japanese and Chinese Art Belonging to Estate of the Late Ursula A. Faber, 1963 ) Parke-Bernet
New York Parke-Bernet Galleries Inc. 1963 Soft cover Very good condition 
I love these old auction catalogs. This one includes the main collections as listed above, plus some from minor collectors. The catalog measures 7-1/2" x 10-1/2" and has 89 pages showing 414 lots. Photographs were not as plentiful as today, but there are black and white photos which display several items in one picture. There are no names or writing -- I love it when they pencil in the realized prices, but no luck here. What I can't get over though is the fact that the yapped edges are ALL THERE. The overhang causes small tears and eventually the owner trims them. I repaired two tiny tears and one soft corner to upper front using archival tape on the reverse side. Among the items are wood and bronze sculptures, early dynastic bronzes, pottery and porcelain, paintings, prints, screens, decorative objects, furniture and lamps.

Treasures of Early Irish Art 1500-B.C. to 1500 A.D. Plus Commentary Booklet (1978), Professor Franch Mitchell
14 Professor Franch Mitchell Treasures of Early Irish Art 1500-B.C. to 1500 A.D. Plus Commentary Booklet (1978)
Washington D.C. Metropolitan Museum of Art 1978 0870991647 / 9780870991646 Second printing Car cover Vary Good condition 
The main exhibition book is lacking in nothing. Gorgeous works of art make every page an immersion in color and design.There is much text on the pages but inside this catalog there's a separate commentary on it too.The exhibition was taken "across the pond" to the United States, though none of these major treasures ever made the trip before -- for good reason. Imagine sending the the Book of Kells, the Ardagh Chalice and the great stone cross from Dysert O'Dea. But traveled they did and returned safely to Ireland. The exhibition catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 221 pages, pus the extra booklet which covers in 14 counted pages the various eras from prehistoric gold to late medieval Ireland.
