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.

The Official Program American and Canadian Sportsmen's Show Cleveland Public Auditorium 1939
4 The Official Program American and Canadian Sportsmen's Show Cleveland Public Auditorium 1939
Unknown location of publisher Expositions Inc. 1939 Printed on cardstock Very Good condition 
The Cleveland Sportsmen Show has been around a long time -- since 1927. The first time around it filled Public Auditorium for just three years due to the Great Depression. Seven years went by and finally in 1937 the doors opened again. This guide measures 4-1/2" x 11-1/4" and opens to four panels which measure 17-3/4" across.The 1939 show opened April 15th and closed April 23rd. What's interesting is unusual competitions which included log-rolling, canoe tilting, wood chopping and cross-cut-sawing. They also had casting tricks and demonstrations, game retrieving, marksmanship, deep-sea fishing and archery. Special events included Native American songs and dances, a sporting dog exhibit, field dog training, trap-shooting, a public rifle range and a public archery range. Guide has information on all panels and on both sides. Very nice! Fairly scarce.

London The Windmill Theatre 1959 35th edition soft cover Good-plus

There's also considerable text about the history of the theater.

Folk Dance Problem Solver 2016, Houston, Ron
6 Houston, Ron Folk Dance Problem Solver 2016
No location Self-published 2016 9781930890486 Annual Card cover Fine condition 
I've been selling ephemera for 20 years and yet I have never seen this guide. I thought it was a stand-alone until I opened the cover and realized that this was the 30th annual issue. It's very well done -- much information on how to emulate dances from all over the world. It is certainly a labor of love -- it's very difficult to turn dance steps into words that are easy to understand. Among the dances in this year's issue are these: The Dorset Four Hand Reel (England); Fjaskern (Swedish, Hurry-Scurry); Lauterbacher (Austrian); Old Family Waltz (Danish); Perinta (English, kissing dance); Polka Dot Polka (American round dance); Tarantella (Italy) and more. Guide measures 9" x 11" and is pristine inside and out. Spiral binding is completely intact. 77 pages.
