1 "Seated at the organ I was weary and ill at ease" The Lost Chord Vintage Postcard
New York The Knapp Company Unknown Near fine 
This is the prettiest card I've seen using a line from F. Earl Christy's poem "The Lost Chord." Most of them are in black and white with a rather disheveled background, though more of the verse. This shows only the first line -- clearly it's part of a series -- which reads "Seated one day at the organ I was weary and ill at ease ..." The small center graphic is lovely and makes for an understated, elegant card. It has not been postally used and there is no writing. It's numberd 381.

25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
2 25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
The North American Association of Venezuela 1966 soft cover Good 
Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela. Clearly, this was a big event, as the ads in the program are largely national -- Chrysler has the back cover and Helena Rubenstein cosmetics has the flip side. Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Venezuela, and the ties that bind Venezuela to the United States. Illustrated with black and white photographs. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does show light foxing to outer edge of front cover and also at first two pages. Otherwise very nice. Slight tobacco scent.

51st Rose Bowl Game, Official Program, Michigan Vs. Oregon State (1965)
3 51st Rose Bowl Game, Official Program, Michigan Vs. Oregon State (1965)
Pasadena, California 1965 soft cover Very good 
Great graphic on this vintage Rose Bowl parade program dated January 1, 1951. The University of Michigan Wolverines tussled with The Oregon Beavers that day and the Wolverines not only took the game handily with a score of 34 to 7, but Wolverine full-back Mel Anthony was named Rose Bowl player of the Game. The program is almost a magazine. It measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 98 pages, all tightly bound. there is one small tear to outer back edge, but I mended it with non-browning almost invisible archival tape. Fun gift for a Rose Bowl fan.

A Visitor's Map of Florence And Useful Notes for Tourists   (circa 1926)
6 A Visitor's Map of Florence And Useful Notes for Tourists (circa 1926)
Florence, Italy Fratelli Alinari Art Reproductions (circa 1926) Circa 1926 soft cover Very Good 
A very handsome fold-out map serves as the centerpiece to this Italian tourist brochure. The map shows numerous ads on one side for tourist items such as Italian leather goods and the map itself on the reverse. It is oddly undated, but one of the ads for purses offers a clue when it announces that the company which placed it won the Grand Prix for embroidery in London and Paris in 1926. Brochures also offers an 7 day itinerary for a trip to Florence and information on hotels. Wonderful addition to a collection of travel ephemera from the Golden Age. Measures 5-1/2"x7-1/2" closed. Map opens to 18" wide and 15" tall.

Around the Clock with Rocky and Ruthie 1947 (Trademark Activity Book)
7 Around the Clock with Rocky and Ruthie 1947 (Trademark Activity Book)
Akron, Ohio Saalfield 1947 soft cover Very good 
This is an interesting piece of ephemera for children fro m Akron Saalfield Publishing. It's sort of a book, but more a booklet with a strange little spin. It's very nice and clean and measures 6"x11" with a bright attractive cover design. The only fault is one flat crease to the bottom back corner. It's amazing that this book survived in such great condition because it was designed as an activity book in which children were encouraged to clip pictures of products from ads in the newspaper and paste them at the appropriate places in the story. Fortunately, this copy survived unscathed! The "story" shows a brother and sister at various times throughout the day beginning with brushing their teeth (toothplaste ad required) to a pre-bedtime game of naming trademarks. Rather odd, but cute.

Arthur's Illustrated  Home Magazine (May, 1875)
8 Arthur's Illustrated Home Magazine (May, 1875)
Philadelphia Timothy Shay Arthur 1875 No. 5 Volume XLIII soft cover Very Good 
Though not as well known as Godey's, Arthur's magazine was a hit in its day.This issue is from May,1875 and is clean and tightly bound. There is a small loss of paper at the bottom of the spine and a light stain from moisture to the bottom front corner and a light one also to bottom corner at a few pages in the back. Several pages of fashions are found at the front of the magazine, but Arthur's seemed to feel its readership was worthy of more intellectual material as well -- the first article is about South Wales. There's also articles about books and libraries, the island of Philae, burrowing bees, gardening, and the the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania. Also includes stories and poems. Ads are confined to the back, but one full page one shows an ad for an early book club offered by the magazine's publisher. The magazine was launched in 1852 by Timothy Shay Arthur of Philadelphia who remained its editor and publisher until his death in 1885. After that it stayed around a few years before slipping away into the annals of time.

Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After
11 Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After "V" Day By Crane Co. (1940's Relevant Ephemnera Laid-in)
Chicago, Illinois Crane Company 1940's Soft cover Fine condition 
This is more dream book than working catalog because it was printed while WWII raged on. The Crane Company knew there would be no building or remodeling until after Victory Day, but they also knew that people had stockpiled lots of war bonds for later. It was a good move because it sparked both creativity and interest while consumers waited. The booklet is filled with kitchens, baths, and heating and plumbing items. It measures 8-1/4" x 11" and has 21 colorful pages with only a few in black and white. Also laid-in is a booklet of the same size which shows many choices in various categories. Each item is drawn and has a little box to check your favorites. The previous owner has checked them in pencil, but I left it because it's fun to see what items appealed. You can erase if desired.

14 Boys Grown Tall; A Story of American Initiative (50 Cleveland Leaders, 1944)
Cleveland, Ohio The Plain Dealer 1944 Hard Cover Very good 
This book is not seen as often as you would think. I had one ten years ago and just now got this one.

They were originally written for the Sunday Cleveland Plain Dealer and appeared throughout March, April and May, 1944. Surnames included are: Black Cary, Case, Champion, Chapin, Codrington, Coe, Collens, Cox, Crawford, Dunn, Eaton, Eide, Emerson, Frackleton, Gerhauser, Girdler, Gund, Harshaw, Holliday, Hood, Hoyt, Humphrey, Johnson, Joyce, Klumph, Kulas, Ladds, Leece, Lewman, Lincoln, Martin, Mather, McCrea, McIntyre, Ogelbay, Otis, Reedall, Rivitz, Rogers, Rossiter, Sears, Smith, Stilwell, Weatherhead, Weaver, White, Woodruff and Wysor.

British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
15 British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
Fleetway Press 1924 soft cover Very Good 
This is a fun find because I've never had one before and it's a guide to a huge exhibition which celebrated Britain and the 58 - count 'em - countries that made up the Empire in 1924. All of the countries participated with the exception of Gambia and Gilbraltar, so when King George V opened the exhibition on April 23, 1924 (St. George's Day), it was a moment to remember. The second photo shows a world map that came from the pocket at the inside front cover. The guide measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 128 pages illustrated with photographs. Great ads throughout, plus those contained in the advertising section in photo three. The exhibit and the guide would remind you of a World's Fair.

Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
17 Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
Unknown 1909 Very good 
This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been.

Christmas Print by Ethel Franklin Botts 1906
19 Christmas Print by Ethel Franklin Botts 1906
Unknown 1906 Very good Botts, Ethel Franklin 
This is a lovely print with a Christmas theme rendered by Ethel Franklin Botts, a student of the great Howard Pyle, as was Jessie Wilcox Smith. Her style is a bit different though with a hint of a collage look at times. She was very prolific and an important illustrator of the day. I don't know exactly what children's book this print derives from, but I do know that it's an illustration for a James Whitcomb Riley poem. The book was published in 1906. Clearly, this was a page of the book - I purchased it from a long time dealer who salvaged plates from disbound and damaged children's books. He was NOT a breaker. The print measures 6-1/2"x9-1/4" with the image measuring 5"x7-1/4". There is a remnant of paper from another page at left margin, but will not appear after framing. Several different scenes from same book available.

20 Cinefex: The Journal of Cinematic Illusions No. 67 September 1996 (Independence Day, The Nutty Professor, Pinocchio)
Riverside, California Don Shay 1996 soft cover Very Good 
Very handsome magazine, a quarterly devoted to the technology and artistry behind the movies we love. The big story in this one is terrific, as it offers many pages of text and color photographs which explain the pyrotechnics of the film, Independence Day. How they made The Nutty Professor is also fun, as is the puppetmasters of Pinocchio and even a commercial -- Nikes Eyes on the Ball ad. Magazine measures 8"x9" and has 154 pages on quality coated paper
