1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
1 1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
New York Empire State Railway Museum Inc. 1971 Sixth annual soft cover All items very good 
This is an interesting combination of items, all in one from a previous collector. The 6th Annual Steam Passenger Service Directory of 1971 was stuffed with numerous newspaper stories about trains, primarily from the Toledo, Ohio area during the 70's. These did cause some toning to the reverse side of cover, both front and back, but I have sequestered them now in a plastic bag in which they will arrive. Also accompanying the directory are a brochure, a business card and an unused ticket, all from the Toledo Lake Erie and Western Railway, Inc. The directory measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 128 page , all of which contain a black and white photograph, plus info on each train.

30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
2 30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
New Orlean, LA G.F. Castleden 1924-1929 Fine in Very Good Envelopes 
These are a lovely find if you are enchanted by the architecture of New Orleans. I've never seen this many in one place ever, but I got them from the estate of a Castleden collector. Castleden was a British artist who emigrated to New Orleans and continued his career as an artist there. The cards were aimed at the tourist trade -- ten scenes for a quarter. Three of the original envelopes will accompany them, but the cards weren't in them, so I am uncertain which belong where. The scenes are Old World beautiful and include, but are not confined to, these subjects: Pirate Alley, the monastery of the Capuchian monks, the staircase of the old St. Louis Hotel, the courtyard of the old Spanish Arsenal, oyster schooners, the Spanish Gate of Cabildo, the Courtyard of the Little Theatre, and the Little Green Shutter Tea Room. None have been used and all are in excellent condition. The envelopes are a little worn, but not bad. The photo shows an array of cards, but not all -- there really are thirty!

Atkins Saws In The Home & Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads (Vintage Advertising Brochures from E.C. Atkins & Company)
4 Atkins Saws In The Home & Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads (Vintage Advertising Brochures from E.C. Atkins & Company)
Indianapolis Atkins Saw Company No date 
Though some would argue that Diston Saws, made in Philadelphia, were the finest handtools of the 19th and early 20th centuries, others would rank products made by the E.C. Atkins Co. of Indianapolis right up there with the best of them. This wonderful brochure entitled Atkins Saws in the Home gets the point across with both its cover graphic of a smiling man using a hand saw and this snappy copy: "Mr. Happy Man says a saw that 'chews' may cost less but the saw to choose is an Atkins. The Finest On Earth." Though the trifold brochure is undated, it appears to be from the 20's or 30's. It measures 4x9" folded, 12" by 9" when opened and 12x18" when extended to full size. The graphics of the full extended page are fabulous --wonderful images of the various saws produced by the company in black and white against a light grey background banded in the same blue as front cover.Copy includes Hints for the Home Workshop, Useful Facts & Figures, How To Care For A Good Saw, plus info on the company and its motto -- "For the man who does things." We will also include a smaller brochure advertising Atkins Silver Steel Dado Heads booklet printed with the name Waco Tool Works of Chicago. This, too, is a trifold, but measures just 3-1/2" x6" closed. Both are in very good condition with just a small bit of soiling to outer fold of larger brochure and a speck of paper loss at a couple corners when fully extending (see photo). Goof gift for an antique tool collector.

This calendar is absolutely pristine. It's one of those where the home office prints the names of the various agencies who in turn use it to reward their customers with an annual gift. There was only one image back then, but as always it's a nice one, especially if you are a doll collector. The calendar is big at 11" x 17" and all of the tear off month pages are intact. Very nice!

Gourmet Magazine (2 issues, March & May, 1962)
14 Gourmet Magazine (2 issues, March & May, 1962)
New York Gourmet Inc. 1962 soft cover Very Good 
I bought these from a cookbook collector who kept them clean and beautiful for many decades. Gourmet was definitely a top tier publication for those interested in creative dining. It's interesting to see how even gourmet food has changed while some classics live on. Among the writers is Lucius Beebe. I remember selling Beebe's railroad titles back when I first became a bookseller and was amazed to find that he's also Lucius Beebe the foodie. Both magazines have great color ads and articles covering pre-summer suppers(you have to SEE the picture with this one to believe it!), dandelion wine,a woman's fond recollection of her grandmother's African American cook, the literary history of the potato, Thai food, eggs, blue trout and more. I have quite a few of these from 1963 and a couple from 1964, so if you're looking for one hit the contact button and I;ll see if I have it. Eventually they'll all be on here.

Large Three Stooges Art Print(Shades of Brown and White)
17 Large Three Stooges Art Print(Shades of Brown and White)
Unknown Location Unknown Publisher Unknown Date Very Good 
If you love the Three Stooges this is a great image. What's perplexing is there's absolutely zero information about its publishing history. The artist's name is not even incorporated in the design. I bought it from a collector who had it rolled in its original mailer, but the tube offers no clues either. The print measures 21-1/2" tall and 27-1/2" wide including narrow white margin on all sides. Striking graphic.

Leather Postcard Here's My Postal Card Mailman Mailbox
18 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.

New Work Liberty Publishing Corporation 1935 soft cover Very Good 
Liberty Magazine was all about news, pop culture, politics and fiction, but with just a sly touch of the National Inquirerer.

There's other articles, several short sotries and a part of a serialized novel by Achmed Abdullah, which was the pseudonym of the Russian-born author Alexander Nicholayevitch Romanoff.
