A Merry Christmas Angel Mary Baby Jesus Vintage Postcard Metallic Silver
1 A Merry Christmas Angel Mary Baby Jesus Vintage Postcard Metallic Silver
Unknown Unknown Fine 
This is a beautiful embossed card with metallic silver details all over it which don't show up in the picture. They're literally everywhere! The card has a divided back and is partially addressed, but was never sent. It appears to be from the early 1900's. The recipient was supposed to have been Mrs. Ambrose Balmat and the message reads, "A Merry Christmas to you all from your brother Louie." This one's a beauty!

2 America 100 Years Ago: Old Views (1946, complete 32 prints in folder)
Buremberg Jacob Mendelsohn 1946 Card folder Very good 
It's amazing that this item remained intact since it came out in 1946 and then was given as a Christmas gift in 1981. There is a small inscription on the reverse side of the front cover which reads, "From Konstanze, Christmas, 1981." Everything is clean and nice with just one small spot of foxing to two prints and a light freckling to the folder. The prints are on paper and measure 7-1/2" x 10".

American Forestry Magazine December, 1918 (WWI Emphasis)
3 American Forestry Magazine December, 1918 (WWI Emphasis)
Washington D.C. American Forestry Association 1918 Volume 34, Number300 soft cover Good 1 
Magazine shows a little light soil to cover and a flat crease at lower front corner. The spine strip is intact, though I glued it a little at top and bottom. Magazine has no label and the pages are pristine aside from a bit of light soil and tiny flat creases to lower corners of a few pages at front. Printed on quality coated paper. Many black and white photographs. Because this was war time even forestry turned its attention to the war and those who served in it. Some of the topics include: the reforestation of France; the effect on war on France's forests; how forestry and tree culture concern the disabled soldier; memorial trees for dead soldiers; and Christmas boxes for the forest and lumber regiments.

American Photography, November 1932
4 American Photography, November 1932
Boston, MA American Photographic Publishing Co. 1933 Vol. XXVII, No. 11 soft cover Very good 
This is a wonderful look at photographic history. It's not a magazine for the casual Kodak owner, but a serious look at photographic technology as it was in 1933. Articles cover exposure and development; photographic Christmas cards with hand-drawn borders; development with paraphenylenediamine; aerial photography with a rebuilt reflecting camera; the photographic translation of color into monochrome; telephoto pictures and infra red plates and much more. Lots to read. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Many ads too for photographic equipment. Magazine is clean and tightly bound. Measures 7" x 9-3/4". Only fault is light toning to back cover. See last photo.

6 Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas Little Girl, Lit Tree,Lantern
Germany 1908 
So pretty, this image, and lightly embossed -- another sweet card from Germany. It's very clean and nice with just a spot of wear to upper left corner. It was sent to a Miss Mabelle Lindsay in care of Mrs. Jacobs, 330 Atwood, City -- that's it for an address! Can you imagine trying that today? The message reads "Many thanks for cards.

Christmas Greetings From the Regiment of Midshipmen (circa 1960's)
9 Christmas Greetings From the Regiment of Midshipmen (circa 1960's)
The Regiments of Midshipmen Unknown Heavy Cradstock Fine 
Beautiful, unused Christmas card fashioned from especially heavy card stock for use by the Regiment of Midshipmen. There is no date, but I am pretty sure that the image on the face depicts the chapel which may well date it from the 60's. It measures 6"x7x1/4" and opens to reveal a color painting of the U.S. frigate Constitution.

Christmas Postcard A Christmas Reverie Santa with Pipe and Smoke 1908
10 Christmas Postcard A Christmas Reverie Santa with Pipe and Smoke 1908
1908 Very good 
An ornate design with a shiny gold background and embossing make this one a standout. There is a slight postmark to the front, so the price has been adjusted for same, but it's still a beauty with just a little corner wear! Note the kids in the whirl of smoke from Santa's pipe. There's no indication of origin, but there is a printed notation on the back that says St. Nicholas Series No. 3. The message on the divided back reads "How did you find everybody in Logansport? Am going to Niad (?) this afternoon and wish you could be there too. That candy was just fine. Mary." The card is addressed to Clara McGlorie of Logansport, Indiana and postmarked 1908.

Christmas Print by Ethel Franklin Botts 1906
11 Christmas Print by Ethel Franklin Botts 1906
Unknown 1906 Very good Botts, Ethel Franklin 
This is a lovely print with a Christmas theme rendered by Ethel Franklin Botts, a student of the great Howard Pyle, as was Jessie Wilcox Smith. Her style is a bit different though with a hint of a collage look at times. She was very prolific and an important illustrator of the day. I don't know exactly what children's book this print derives from, but I do know that it's an illustration for a James Whitcomb Riley poem. The book was published in 1906. Clearly, this was a page of the book - I purchased it from a long time dealer who salvaged plates from disbound and damaged children's books. He was NOT a breaker. The print measures 6-1/2"x9-1/4" with the image measuring 5"x7-1/4". There is a remnant of paper from another page at left margin, but will not appear after framing. Several different scenes from same book available.

Daily Food for Christians 1910 (Miniature Book)
12 Daily Food for Christians 1910 (Miniature Book)
New York Thomas Y. Crowell & Co. Circa 1910 Hard cover Very Good No jacket 
Pretty little book which was a gift from a mother to her daughter. The book has no printed date so the inscription dated 1910 saves the day. It measures 3-1/4" x 2-1/2" and has 192 pages. The book is nicely made with subtle endpapers and gilding around all three edges of the text block. Book was intended to be read daily -- a few lines from Scripture and a few from a hymn. The inscription reads "Miss Virginia Lane Christmas, 1910 From Mother."

Embossed German Postcard Merry Xmas Holly Little Girl Red Coat & Muff
13 Embossed German Postcard Merry Xmas Holly Little Girl Red Coat & Muff
F. Beuthien 1909 Very Good 
A pretty embossed German postcard wishes A Merry Xmas to You. Red coats and white fur muffs seems to have been all the rage for little girls at Christmas at the turn of the century -- but what a charming image it makes. 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."

Federal Smallwares Catalog
14 Federal Smallwares Catalog
New York City Federal Smallwares 1979 Catalog R1979/11 Soft cover Good condition 5-1/4 
This is a new catalog to me, but I love the cover with Santa lugging toys and books for the good boys and girls. But even the grown-ups got some goodies -- small collectibles from all over the country. The order form is still bound-in with no writing. Each item is measured and photographed in black and white. There are only a few small defects to the catalog -- two small pieces of archival tape on both sides of each corner. One last lost the corner at the back. I also added a white label due to an another partial which was half adressed, hence the plain label.The vatalog has 146 pages.

Fortune Magazine December 1934 (Illuminated Manuscripts, Steinway Pianos, The Diesel Engine)
15 Fortune Magazine December 1934 (Illuminated Manuscripts, Steinway Pianos, The Diesel Engine)
New York Time-Life 1934 Volume X, Number 6 soft cover Very Good condition 
The Christmas issue of Fortune Magazine always sported a particularly beautiful cover. What adds to the impression though is the size of the magazine at 11-1/2" x 14". Everything is clean and nice, but there are a few defects -- a few small isolated spots of edge wear to cover, a small bit of foxing to bottom of contents page (see photo) and a bit of the same to the spine side of back cover (again, see photo). The articles this time include: Washington D.C., The Federal Budget (A Guide to U.S. Spending), The Dutch Throne, DuPont, Illuminated Manuscripts, The House of Steinway (pianos), and The Diesel Engine. Ships for $2 in the U.S.. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but may be expensive. Please contact us with destination and I will provide an exact quote.

German Embossed Postcard Merry Christmas Girl in Red Coat & Muff by Fence
16 German Embossed Postcard Merry Christmas Girl in Red Coat & Muff by Fence
Germany 1908 Very good 
All dressed up for Christmas in a red coat, a fur-trimmed hat, and a muff. This card is German and is embossed which is why the penciled message on the back is virtually unreadable. It was sent, however, to Miss Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The date on the postage stamp is likewise obscured, but it appears to be 1908. Card will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
17 Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
Harper Brothers 1888 Vol. XXI No. 50 soft cover Very good 
Though this is actually a magazine, it's printed in newspaper fashion and yet remains remarkably good. There are few tiny edge tears and a chip from the side of page one, but I have been able to mend all tears at folds with non-browning archival tape which is nearly invisible. When opened the magazine measures 12"x16-1/2". The two brown stickers on the face are the mailing labels to De Soto, Missouri. This is the Christmas issue so there are holiday stories, but also an article about embroideries at the London Arts and Crafts Exhibition as well as two pages devoted to embroidery patterns. There's also an article about fashions from New York and a page of art showing them.

Harper's Bazar January 7, 1888
18 Harper's Bazar January 7, 1888
Harper & Brothers 1888 XXL No. 1 soft cover Good-plus 
Very clean attractive magazine presented newspaper-style and geared to women. It's quite large, though folded in the middle and has no mailing label. There's a bit of toning at the fold and several small edge tears which have been pressed and, if s9ignificant, repaired with archival tape. Measures 11-1/2"x16-1/2" with 16 dense pages. One of the most interesting stories is a first person account entitled "How We Spent Christmas Day in India" with accompanying drawings. Other topics include winter bonnets (hence the cover girl),the occupations of women college graduates, rich and spicy foods, old English dances and several pieces devoted to New Year's. Many ads at back which are also great fun to read.

19 Holiday Goodies and How To Make Them (Book in a Box, 1952)
Mt. Vernon, New York Pater Pauper Press 1952 Hard Cover Fine in Good Box 
Book itself is clean as a whistle with no sign of use, other than a stamp on the front free endpaper which reads "American Dairy Association." Book measures 4"x7" and has 61 pages. Nice art throughout in the same design and colors of the cover. Among the recipes are these: Popcorn Christmas Trees, Brown Lace Cookies, Merengue Stars, Holiday Molasses Taffy, Chocolate Caramels, Cranberry Topsy-Turvy and much more. The book is in perfect condition -- the box (which is seldom seen) has been repaired at all corners with archival tape. Someone else did the top ones and I did the lower! There's also a stray black at the top edge of the box. Overall very nice.

Holly Leaves, The Christmas Number of the Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News, 1954
20 Holly Leaves, The Christmas Number of the Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News, 1954
London Commonwealth House 1954 soft cover 
From its spectacular red, black and gold cover art to its slick pages, large size, and terrific ads, this vintage British collectible magazine is a thing of beauty! It measures a whopping 10x14-1/4" and is clean as a whistle inside and out, marred only two small errant red marks to bottom front at gilt. Poems and stories abound, but it's the art and the ads that take the breath away. All are gloriously frameable if you can bear to cut the magazine. This edition is especially interesting due to its article on the post office packet service and the gorgeous paintings and history of Plymouth. Magazine has been beautifully preserved. If you love art and/or England it truly doesn't get any better than this. I started out with a stack of these -- this is one of two left. NOTE: Overseas orders welcome, but due to size please use the contact button and include destination and item so we can quote actual cost.
