All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
2 All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
Honolulu Hawaii Honolulu Star Bulletin 1950 Diamond Jubilee Edition soft cover 
This is a book, yes, but it's an ephemeral one because it's sort of like the phone book -- you can get a new one every year! This one's nice because it commemorates Hawaii's Diamond Jubilee and precedes its statehood. The front sections has a lot of Hawaiian history and there is much info later on the various island and the sugar and pineapple industries. There is also some tourist info and ads for hotels and restaurants, but this is really about what Hawaii was like at mid-century. Photo illustrated in black and white. the book measures 5"x7" and has 352 pages. The only fault is wear to the very bottom of the spine with a small loss of paper at both edges. Otherwise it's tightly bound and clean as whistle inside and out. 352 pages.

Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
5 Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio Broadway Photo Company turn of the 20th century Cabinet card Very good 
Cute little person in a very big chair. May be a rocking chair. There are no names on the back and no dates, so I'm guessing this picture was taken around the turn of the 20th century. The Broadway Photo Co. was located at 1150 Broadway, Cleveland, Ohio, but research hit a dead end from the start. The card measures 4-1/4"x6-1/2" and is very nice and clean with no wear to edges

Cleveland Women's Groups: An Amazing Story (1996)
6 Cleveland Women's Groups: An Amazing Story (1996)
Clevelnd, Ohio Women Celebrating the Bicentennial (A legacy project) 1995 0961326522 / 9780961326524 Special Commemorative Edition Card cover Fine condition 
This book didn't derive from the American Bicentennial, but rather from Cleveland women of 1896 and 1996. In 1896 men took over the city's 100th birthday, so when the century turned from 19th to 20th Cleveland women opened a time capsule which included a letter from Catherine Avery (Mrs. Elroy M. Avery) which asked Cleveland women what they had done to improve the city. At the time of writing she spoke of its good attributes, but also of dirty water, polluted air, homelessness and and poverty. Cleveland women had done much in that century past and pulled all of their work together to create this book which includes 149 pages of women's organizations replete with information on each. Booklet is clean with no names or writing, no spine crease or any other defect. It measures 7" x 8-1/4".

Dainty Dishes The Church of Christ Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio Building Fund Cookbook
8 Dainty Dishes The Church of Christ Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio Building Fund Cookbook
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio Ladies of the Church of Christ Unknown soft cover Good 
Very clean and tightly bound cookbook published to raise money for the church's building fund. There is no date for it, so I tried to do a little sleuthing, but the only church with that precise name was building in the 1960's and this booklet precedes that by decades. I then tried looking up the businesses which supplied ads, but again, not much luck. The only company that appeared was the C.H. Yeager Company which came to Akron in 1906 and changed its name to Yeager Company in 1946. The ad shows the old name, so again, it's clearly before 1946. Judging by the lack of digits in the phone numbers the booklet was published fairly early in the 20th century. The recipes are for light fare -- Hungarian potato salad, strawberry salad, marshmallow pudding, raspberry shrub and many more. Booklet measures 6"x9" and has 46 pages. Only faults are loss of bottom back corner which has snapped off at the point and a little browning to a few pages due to extra recipes laid-in. There even one for homemade dry cleaning!

Eight Coffee Trade Cards (Lion, Arbuckle, Gold Medal, Dilworth's)
9 Eight Coffee Trade Cards (Lion, Arbuckle, Gold Medal, Dilworth's)
Good 
Here we have eight trade cards, none dated, but likely turn-of-the-century. Three are from Lion, two from Arbuckle's,two from Gold Medal and the smallest one from Dilworth's. None have been pasted into an album, though the backs of all have toned from cuddling up too close to other high acidic paper items. There's a small margin stain to one, darkening to upper corner of one and toning to lower corner of another. Overall they are quite still nice. The lagest measures 3-1/4"x5-1/4" and the smallest(from Dilworth's) a petite 2-1/2"x3"

11 Embossed German Postcard Merry Xmas Holly Little Girl Red Coat & Muff

A pretty embossed German postcard wishes A Merry Xmas to You.

This card is still crisp and was not postally used. It's addressed to a Miss Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota and the small message on the divided back read "With best wishes for a Merry Christmas From Eddie."

Formfit In Show Business (Formfit Lingerie Sales Brochure and 33-1/3 RPM Record)
15 Formfit In Show Business (Formfit Lingerie Sales Brochure and 33-1/3 RPM Record)
Formfit Uknowm 50s'-60's softcover Very Good 
Quirky, fun collectible and probably the oddest thing I ever bought. No date on this one, but clothing on drawings would indicate late 50's to early 60's. Bright pink sales brochure was issued to the would-be Formit lingerie salesperson, or as they say on the record, "corsetiere!" Inside it says, "Join Betsy White for a preview in sound of your Show Business Career." This is augmented by a drawing of the stylish Betsy White, a female salesperson holding up a girdle, and a funky picture of an early 20th century chorus line which doesn't seem to really have anything to do with anything. The record plays great and is laugh-out-loud funny. Includes music! Brochure opens as a trifold with photo of president of the company at center. Only defect of note are two closed tears over the area that holds the 33-1/3 rpm record.

Fourth of July Postcard Girl Holding Fireworks (Series No. 3)
16 Fourth of July Postcard Girl Holding Fireworks (Series No. 3)
Near Fine 
I love this card -- I've seen it with a gold background, but never silver until this one came along. The young woman holding the fireworks looks like a Gibson girl. The card is embossed, though lightly, has a divided back,and has never been written on, or sent in the mail. It's in excellent condition -- near fine -- and derives from the first decade of the 20th century, though is not dated. It will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper March 16, 1889 (President  Harrison Inauguration. Sunday Drink Question. Anarchist Sunday Schools)
17 Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper March 16, 1889 (President Harrison Inauguration. Sunday Drink Question. Anarchist Sunday Schools)
Frank Leslie 1869 Vol. LXVIII, No. 1,748 soft cover Very Good condition 
This popular 19th century newspaper is quite large at 11" across and 16-1/2" tall. It appears to have been bound with other issues at one time, as there is one section at top which remains threaded. The cover depicts the swearing in of Honorable G. Blaine as Secretary of State. Harrison had just won the presidential election, so much ink was used discussing his inaugural address, his cabinet choices,settling in with his family in the White House, the departure of Grover Cleveland, and a picture of celebratory fireworks at the Washington Memorial. The other two things that jumped out were anarchist Sunday schools and the Sunday drink question which of course continued for decades. Newspaper is clean and has no tears. I have several others from the same year, so if you are looking for a specific issue let me know. It will arrive flat. Ships in the U.S. for $2. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but please contact me with destination so I can supply an actual postage quote.

Glimpses of Greater Cleveland and Some Old Time Views (1904)
19 Glimpses of Greater Cleveland and Some Old Time Views (1904)
Cleveland, Ohio Whitworth Brothers Company 1904 soft cover Very Good 
This is a surprisingly hard to find booklet, but a very attractive one. I especially like the paper it's printed on -- very satiny to the touch. This is not a history in words, but rather in captioned photographs.The booklet measures 8-3/4"x11-1/2" and has 33 counted pages showcasing 103 counted images of monuments, nature scenes, buildings, water scenes, businesses, downtown -- many views of a bustling city. Booklet is clean and tightly bound with just some wear to outer layer of paper over thin spine which in no way compromises the integrity of the binding. Overall nicely cared for.
