Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
8 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.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Home and Family (7 Color Postcards pre-1963)
9 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Home and Family (7 Color Postcards pre-1963)
Boston, Mass. Bromley & Co. circa 1950's early 1960's) Near fine 
Seven beautiful glossy, full color postcards showing the interior and exterior of the home of American poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; a depiction of his sons, Charles and Ernest; and of his wife, the former Frances Elizabeth Appleton. The house was located at 105 Brattle Street, Cambridge Mass. and Longfellow lived in it from 1837 to 1882. The chairw as given to him as a gift on his 72nd birthday from the children of Cambridge because it was made of the chestnut wood made famous in his poem "The Village Blacksmith." The room with the fireplace was Longfellow's study. The other one with a table was the dining room, and the staircase is what he referred to as "the broad hall stair" in "The Children's Hour". The cards not used and show only faint toning to backs. All will arrive in plastic sleeves. A nice little gift for the right person.

Leather Postcard Here's My Postal Card Mailman Mailbox
10 Leather Postcard Here's My Postal Card Mailman Mailbox
1906 Very good 
Novelty postcards are fun and this leather one is perfect for a collector of postcards -- as it expresses the idea of trading cards with firneds to build a collection -- "Here's My Postcal Card Send Me Yours, I Am Collecting Post Cards." Under this is a line for adding one's name and Charles Patton took advantage of it. He mailed the card Dec. 3, 1907 from Warren, Ohio to Miss Edina Vanderslice of Garrettsville, Ohio.

Munsey Magazine October 1896
12 Munsey Magazine October 1896
New York Frank A. Munsey 1896 Vol. XVI No. I soft cover Good 
It's interesting how Munsey Magazine had a HUGE circulation and yet it's less well known than Century, Harper's and Frank Leslie's. I just got six issues though so am happy as a clam. Before I tell you about this one though here's a fun fact about Munsey -- it was considered a bit racy and some stores would not stock it due to its "undressed women and undressed statuary." This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, a previous owner trimmed off the overhang of the yapped edges-- a common reaction when they develop chips and tears. Magazine offers great ads, fiction and articles The best of the latter includes a piece about the Carroll family of Viriginia (Charles Carroll); and two back to back articles that almost share the same title -- first, Types of Fair Women and then Types of Modern War Ships. I guess they're both called She, so why not? There's also tons of stuff on the actors and actresses of the day, as well as a piece on current artists. with portraits. Altogether fun!

The inside is very clean but does show faint dampstaining to top margin of pages, a stain to front cover, a repair to lower spine which seems to be holding, and a chip to bottom spine and to lower edge.

Political Poster Charles E. Hughes for President; Frank B. Willis for Governor; Myron T. Herrick for Senator (Republicans, 1916)
15 Political Poster Charles E. Hughes for President; Frank B. Willis for Governor; Myron T. Herrick for Senator (Republicans, 1916)
Columbus, Ohio The Ohio Republican State Executive Committee (1916) 1916 Good condition 
This is a graphically appealing poster with three Republican candidates on the same poster running for three offices in 1916. One won and the other two lost. Charles E. Hughes lost his bid for the presidency when Woodrow Wilson won the popular vote with 600,000 votes and a squeaky win in the electoral vote. The winner was Frank B. Willis for Ohio governor who later became a senator from 1921-28. Myron T. Herrick lost his bid for the Senate, but served as an ambassador to France from 1912-14 and later from 21-29 The poster measures 14" high and 20-1/2" tall. There is one tear from the right edge to Herrick's oval "frame. It was taped at reverse side by previous owner and is closed. The only other problem is a few tiny chips to bottom edge.

Sketches by Boz, Charles Dickens; Goodall's Household Library 1885 (In Custom Made Box)
18 Sketches by Boz, Charles Dickens; Goodall's Household Library 1885 (In Custom Made Box)
Leeds, England Goodall, Backhouse & Co. 1885 Dickens, Charles Second Limited Edition soft cover Very Good in Very Good Box 
This is a most unusual find, a copy of the Goodall Library edition of Charles Dickens' first published work which made its debut (in hard cover) in the 1830's. This is the second Goodall (British company) unabridged printing of 250,000 soft cover copies in 1895. It sounds like a lot -- and it is -- but it's not easy to find a copy, as it was ephemeral by nature. Whoever owned this one valued it enough to have a special box made to protect it -- and protect it it did. The booklet has a sewn binding which is tight and effective and its pages and cover are clean, showing only a tiny bit of foxing to lower edge and two small chips to the same area/ As you can see from the cover, it was used as an advertising vehicle. Look around the margins at front and you will see references to custard powder, egg powder, and blancmange powder. The book measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 106 dense pages, plus a couple more pages of advertising. The box is in very nice condition.
