This crisp and clean catalog was the vehicle to disperse a 30 year collection during the summer of 2003. There were 55 pieces of very old English tableware, many painted in color enamels. One of the most interesting items of the collection though is the one on the cover. It's called an etui and it contains a gold fruit knife, scissors, an ivory notecard, a snuff spoon/needle and pincers. The date is circa 1755.

Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
7 Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
Chicago Aldens 1951 Autumn and Winter 1951-52 Soft cover Good condition 
I wish the previous owner hadn't used the front cover as a scratch pad to see how much it would cost to buy two items. I wish even more that he or she had tried to erase it, maybe because the answer is wrong! Anyway this is a very nice catalog. I don't know this company and have never seen one of their catalogs, but I very much like the size which is easily handled at 5-1/2" x 9-1/2". The catalog has a whopping 972 pages of fashions for the whole family, toys, jewelry, engagement rings, household items, furniture, guns, shoes, typewriters and much more. This is a complete immersion into material culture at the beginning of the 50's -- 65 years ago. The order blank is still inside and has not been used. Only other fault is creasing to lower corners both front and back, but both have been discretely taped for strength.

Annual Circular for the Eighth  Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
11 Annual Circular for the Eighth Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
Cleveland, Ohio The Cleveland Academy 1869 Eighth year soft cover Good-plus condition 
It's interesting that in the eighth year of the Cleveland Academy the school still sent a circular rather than a catalog to students and would-be students. The other interesting thing is that the senior and middle grade classes were populated with girls only. The junior class and the preparatory class, however, had both girls AND boys, though girls dominated. Example --the junior class had 44 girls and nine boys. Members of the graduating class were Laura Barnett, Helen P. Briggs, Fannie A. Fuller, Nettie Hall, Grace A. Kingsley, Cora Kingsley, Gussie Marchand and Ada W. Simonds. The circular shows a light skim of grayness to top front edge and an indentation to the upper fold from a paper clip. A previous owner wrote 68-9 next to the date which is 1869-70. I held it up to my magnifier and the printed date is right. A very scarce item.

New York Parke-Bernet Galleries Inc. 1950 March 9, 1950 Card cover Very good condition

At this point the collection was owned by Mrs. Edwin M. Berol.

Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
15 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.

Atwater Radio Catalog 1927 / Atwater Kent Radio Log (1929)
17 Atwater Radio Catalog 1927 / Atwater Kent Radio Log (1929)
Philadelphia Atwater Kent Manufacturing Company 1927 Soft cover Good 
These two Atwater Kent items came together so, as always, I kept them that way. The catalog isn't perfect, but is tightly bound and clean. Defects include vertical crease on all pages and cover, but I have ironed it flat and put it in the book press. There's a also a tiny corner missing to lower front cover, a part of mailing label on front has been removed, there's a few faint pencil marks on back, and evidence that something was once pasted on top edge of a two page spread (see photo). The radio card log is interesting -- it's completely filled in on both sides and dated 12-25-29.

Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After
19 Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After "V" Day By Crane Co. (1940's Relevant Ephemnera Laid-in)
Chicago, Illinois Crane Company 1940's Soft cover Fine condition 
This is more dream book than working catalog because it was printed while WWII raged on. The Crane Company knew there would be no building or remodeling until after Victory Day, but they also knew that people had stockpiled lots of war bonds for later. It was a good move because it sparked both creativity and interest while consumers waited. The booklet is filled with kitchens, baths, and heating and plumbing items. It measures 8-1/4" x 11" and has 21 colorful pages with only a few in black and white. Also laid-in is a booklet of the same size which shows many choices in various categories. Each item is drawn and has a little box to check your favorites. The previous owner has checked them in pencil, but I left it because it's fun to see what items appealed. You can erase if desired.

20 Beautiful Premiums For B&W Coupons Catalog No. 20, 1942
Louisville, Kentucky Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corporation 1942 soft cover Very Good condition 
This is a small catalog with lots of eye appeal. It measures just 3-1/4" x 6" with 60 pages, all illustrated in full color. Aside from a small crease to upper back corner it's in excellent condition with no fault of note. All you had to do was buy cigarettes, hang on to the coupons, and trade them in for something in the catalog -- and what an array of items!
