Cleveland Official Souvenir of the Thirty-Fifth National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic 1911
4 Cleveland Official Souvenir of the Thirty-Fifth National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic 1911
Cleveland E.W. Doty 1901 Soft cover Good 
Wonderful souvenir of the encampment of the Grand Old Army in Cleveland in September, 1911. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does have some faults which include small tears to the yapped edges, a slight vertical crease to a few front pages and soil in a distinct grid pattern to back cover. This is not an oil-based stain, as it does not appear on the reverse side. The binding is tight thanks to two staples, but I wonder if at one time it was bound with thread, as there are three very tiny holes through the entire spine. At any rate, the pages are clean as a whistle and there are 92 of them. Coated paper and many black and white photographs enhance the text which is likewise plentiful. A significant item for collectors of Cleveland history, Grand Army of the Republic, or military. Measures 7"x10-1/2"

Chicago; Omaha; Sioux City, Neb.; Los Angeles Cudahy's Packing Company No date. Circa early 1900's card Very good 
This one's not at all rare because it was too cute not to keep! It still charms collectors though and has even inspired modern look-alikes in the forms of magnets. This guy's the real deal though! He measures 2-1/2" across at the widest point, which is his feet, and 6" from the top of crown to the bottom of his feet. "King Pig" sits up and begs to be part of the "Rex Brand" line of meats packed by the Cudahy Company. Both front and back sides of the card are identical. Inside the text covers the celebrated Rex Brand sugar cured meats,pure leaf lard, Cudahy's sugar cured hams, breakfast bacon, Rex Brand extract of beef and Cudahy's Essence of Pepsin should you eat too much of the other stuff!

8 Earl Carroll's Vanities Beauty Souvenir (1940's)
California Oscar Tittman No date. circa 1940's soft cover Very good 
Collectors of Hollywood and California memorabilia will love this program from Earl Carroll's Vanities, a nightspot once located on Sunset Blvd. in L.A. The booklet measures 8"x11" and has plentiful black and white photographs as well as odd facts such as his measurements for the perfect girl (including her ankles and wrists) and his Demandments of Beauty. I counted 16 pages. Booklet is clean and tightly bound with just a bit of rubbing to spine area. Earl Carroll died at the age of 55 in a bizarre plane crash in 1948. I also have some postcards of the showgirls.

If you admire the traditional realist portrait the Dutch painter, Frans Hals' fifty paintings are a treat. This is a hefty catalog which measures 8"x10-1/2" and is printed on substantial paper.

The collection was borrowed from many institutions including, but not confined to, these: Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Museum of Art and other museums and private collectors. Catalog opens with 13 pages of dense text about the artist, followed by photographs of the paintings, and then the descriptions. Catalog is clean and tightly bound.

18 Serial Publications; Essential Parts of the 19th Century Imagination (Robert H. Jackson Collection 1996)
New York The Grolier Club 1996 soft cover Fine 
Crisp, as new booklet with very handsome card laid-in which says, "With Compliments, Robert H. Jackson. Measures 6"x9" and has 42 pages. The Grolier Society, which published it, is an organization of book collectors, so this exhibit is all about books, specifically books which first were published in magazines in installments. This was a popular occurrence -- Louisa May Alcott did it, Dickens did it, and do did many others. The excitement of it was the wait and the fact that the author had not yet written the entire thing yet. An essay discusses this at the front of the booklet followed by commentary on the items exhibited.

The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
20 The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
Atlanta, Georgia Great Gatsby's 1997 soft cover Very Good 
Fabulous over-sized auction catalog filled with rare and beautiful items, all of which are pictured in full color. Measures 10-1/2"x12-1/2 and is clean and tightly bound with just a few spots of wear at spine, none of which compromises its integrity. The former owner's mailing label is on the reverse. This particular catalog is noteworthy due to the sale of Frank Lloyd Wright's personal car, a 1956 Aztec Red Mercedes Gull Wing designed especially for him after he redesigned a New York City car dealership which has since been demolished. The opening bid was to have been $300,000 and Jay Leno was one of many collectors eyeing it, but, try as I may, I cannot find the gavel price. Catalog has 46 pages.
