Handcolored Postcard Residence of Z. Davis North Market Street Canton, Ohio
6 Handcolored Postcard Residence of Z. Davis North Market Street Canton, Ohio
Brooklyn, New York The Albertype Co. Circa 1907 Very good 
This is a very pretty card, completely hand colored showing the Victorian residence of one Z. Davis of North Market Street, Canton Ohio. The card was made by the Ambrotype Company, but it's a bit tricky to date it, as there is no postmark. I think the definitive clue is the divided back which was not allowed by the postal service until 1907. The card was never mailed, but reads To Nettie xxx, From Jack. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve. Many Canton,Ohio cards available.

Trent Movie Theatre New Rochelle, 1936
11 Trent Movie Theatre New Rochelle, 1936
New Rochelle, New York Trent Theatre 1936 Nov. 4-5; Nov. 6,7,8; Nov. 9-10 Leaklet soft cover Near fine condition 
These little leaflets are hard to find because they're easily tossed away after the movies have been enjoyed. The leaflet is printed on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet folded in the middle, so there are a week's entertainment. The first one is Marlene Dietrich And Charles Boyer in the Garden of Allah and The 39 Steps with Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll. Open it up and Bette Davis and Claude Rains take over "Mr. Skeffinton" and "Lady Bodyguard" with Eddie Albert and Anne Shirley. Next to those are "A Girl, A Guy and A Gob" with George Murphy, Lucille Bal, l and Edmond O'Brien and "Wildcat" starring Richard Arlen and Atline Judge.The back ad is for "Brenda Starr Reporter" with Joan Woodbury, and Kane Richmonds. This apears to be sa erial movie, as the leaflet says "Don't Miss a Chapter every Friday and Saturday." There's also a comment on seeing Brenda every Friday and Saturday. The ads are clean and nice with just one very small tear which I have mended with archival tape.

Your Doctor And You; Brief Dramatic Stories of the March of Medicine Parke Davis Advertising
12 Your Doctor And You; Brief Dramatic Stories of the March of Medicine Parke Davis Advertising
Detroit, Michigan Parke Davis Soft Cover Very Good 
An oversized bound collection of Parke Davis medical ads from the late 1920s. There is no date, but the title page says, "Recent advertisements in a series which has been appearing in national magazines since 1928." It measures 11-1/4"x14-3/4" and is very clean with no names or writing. The ads are pristine. The outer cover was designed with an overhang which, as usual, created small edge tears. Most are not a problem, but a few snaggy one were repaired on the reverse side by me with tiny pieces of archival tape. There are 15 ads in all, each with a message such as the danger of children playing with firecrackers, the hidden danger of diphtheria (two ads), mothers dying in childbirth etc.

Easton, Pennsylvania Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society 1931 volume IV, Number 2 soft cover Good condition 
I grew up in Akron, the Rubber Capital of the World, so these journals, though hard to find, are like old friends to me.

The journal measures 6"x9 and is tightly bound with no names or writing.
