How to Build A Better Home / Copper and Brass Research Association
1 How to Build A Better Home / Copper and Brass Research Association
New York Copper and Brass Research Association circa 1920's-30's soft cover Very good 
Very nice booklet oversized at 8"x10-1/2" Though clearly an advertising vehicle for the Copper and Brass Research Association, the contents are most impressive -- NOT a "fluff piece." It's illustrated throughout with both photographs and drawings with the emphasis on the use of brass and copper as an investment for the future -- copper roofs, copper leaders and gutters, brass plumbing, and copper, brass or bronze hardware. Booklet has 31 pages and is clean and tightly bound. The top front edge shows evidence of something stamped on it at one time, but is smudged. There is no date, and few clues, but a drawing of a family in front of a house indicate by woman's clothing that it's 1920's or 30's.

2 Metal Craft Supply Company Catalog (1948)
Providence, Rhode Island Metal Crafts Supply Company 1948 Card cover Good condition 
Very nice catalog -- clean and bright inside with no names or writing. There's a few spots of edge wear and rubbing to edges at back, and darkening at spine, but overall it's quite good with a tight binding. The company provided equipment and supplies for brass, pewter, aluminum, silver and copper work. Items included are metals in sheet and wire form, hammers, mallets, anvils, solders, enamels, stones, findings, and etching and polishing materials. Many black and white photos and drawings. VERY attractive!

Loyalty In Business by Elbert Hubbard (1921), Hubbard, Elbert
4 Hubbard, Elbert Loyalty In Business by Elbert Hubbard (1921)
East Aurora, New York The Roycrofters 1921 Hard cover Very Good condition 
Very clean, attractive book, found much less often than most of Hubbard's books, but still designed in the distinctive Arts & Crafts manner of the Roycrofters. Book measures 5"x7-1/2" with handsome brown mottled paper over boards, matching end papers, bright copper printing to face and a brown suede spine. Book is clean as a whistle inside and out with no names or writing and no bumps to boards. The text was originally published in the pages of Hubbard's magazines, The Fra and The Philistine. A compendium of articles addressing success turned into a charming book. 119 pages.

The American Rifleman Magazine June,1931 (Elmer Keith), Keith,Elmer
5 Keith,Elmer The American Rifleman Magazine June,1931 (Elmer Keith)
Washington D.C. The National Rifle Association 1931 Vol. LXXIX No.6 soft cover Good-plus 
Oversized magazine which is clean as a whistle inside. The only real fault is two small nicks and some mild soil to bottom edge of front cover. I cleaned it with a document pad, but didn't dare use book cleaner on the ink. The magazine has advertising and several articles which include one by the famous gun writer, Elmer Keith, who wrote about the new 225-grain Western tool and copper bullet and new Noske scope. Other articles are titled: A Near Modern Big Bertha; Hunting in the Yukon; Bedding Rifles in Stocks; Hint for the Making and Uses of Bullet Swages; and Pistol Regulation, Its Principles and History. Magazine measures 9"x12" and has 52 pages.

The Animal Image.Contemporary Objects and the Beast (1981, Monroe, Michael W.
6 Monroe, Michael W. The Animal Image.Contemporary Objects and the Beast (1981
Washignton D.C. Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of Art (Smithsonian Press) 1981 Card cover Very Good 
Very nice, clean, tightly bound card catalog with just a few small defects to back cover. Mostly it's a few very small rubbed areas and one small crease which became a closed tear. It feels to me that something, perhaps white glue, is what closed it. The catalog is pristine and and has wonderful photography in both color and black and white. Paper is nicely coated and the text is ample throughout. Very unique works, most of which are three-dimensional. Booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11-1/12" and has 48 pages. Works are from numerous artists. 106 objects. One of the most surprising artists was Collette who exhibited a cloissone on fine silver with 24K enamel wire and panels joined by copper electroforming.

Studio Potter Journal Volume Eight, Number One  (June 1979), Sabin, Peter; Williams, Gerry (editors)
7 Sabin, Peter; Williams, Gerry (editors) Studio Potter Journal Volume Eight, Number One (June 1979)
Goffstown, New Hampshire The Daniel Clark Foundation 1979 Volume Eight, Number 1 Card cover Very good condition 
Studio Potter Journal which is at least 40 years old. It was only published twice a year. This is the first one for 1979. What's interesting about this one is two articles with photographs of the artist, Bernard Leach, a potter from Great Britain. The first article is "Bernard Leach 1887-1979: Towards A Standard" and the second is "Bernard Leach Two Recollections". The first one can be removed and opened up to reveal on the back a full two page poster image of Leach. Other topics are copper red glazes, producing brilliant copper reds in glass, copper red salt vapor glazes and a lot more about red copper. There are also cameos of various potters, their work, and their surroundings. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/4" and has 78 pages with many black and white illustrations. The only faults are a bit of sunning to the spine and a small stain to the back cover. Overall very nice
