Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
3 Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
Ottawa,Canada Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Department of Trade & Commerce 1939 Soft cover Good 
This is really a nice publication from the 1939 World's Fair, all about Canada. In part, it beckonsto travelers, but it's also a serious look at Canada's industries and exports. The book is tightly bound and clean, bit as with every copy I have ever seen, it has a few faults. The spine shows wear to top and bottom, though I have re-glued it and it's firm. There's also a little bit of pink stain on the front page, creasing to upper front corner, and the page opposite the color plates shows some foxing. Overall though, the book is quite wonderful with a pull-out color map,lots of photos, and several fold-outs about various industries, including the manufacture of cellophane. Book measures 5-1/2"x 8-3/4" and has 176 pages.

Color Postcard All-American Chevrolet Soap Box Derby Parade Confetti (1960's Akron, Ohio)
4 Color Postcard All-American Chevrolet Soap Box Derby Parade Confetti (1960's Akron, Ohio)
Boston, Mass. ColorPicture circa 1960's Fine 
This card is fabulous! There's no date on it because it's unused, but I grew up in Akron, Ohio and I know I was at this parade when I was a kid because we never missed it. I know it's from the 60's too because that's when Chevrolet sponsored the Soap Box Derby and that was when the Derby was a REALLY BIG DEAL. The parade was heading up Main Street with the truck positioned between the two department stores, Polsky's and O'Neil's, which were right across the street from each other. I still remember the thrill of the flying confetti! Card will arrive in a plastic sleave

Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program
5 Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program "The Good Old Days"
Cleveland, Ohio The Excelsior Club 1927 soft cover Good-plus condition 
Ephemera from the Excelsior Club, a social venue founded in Cleveland in 1872, is not often seen, but here we have a program from New Year's Eve 1927. The club was much like the Cleveland Union Club, but for upscale Jewish families with a Germanic cultural background. From the beginning help from the Halle family of Halle's department store fame was integral to the club's success. The program shows the scenes of a musical "The Good Old Days" which required members to take to the stage as singers, dancers, musicians, actors and tambourine players. Looks like great fun and is a glimpse at a Cleveland landmark that closed in 1931 when the Excelsior melded into the similar Oakwood Club. Their last building became part of Case Western Reserve University. Program measures 5-1/2" x 9-1/2" and opens to two pages, plus another at back. Overall good, but it had been folded horizontally. I ironed it and it is now flat. Program includes many names.

Florida Official Road Map 1952
6 Florida Official Road Map 1952
State Road Department of Florida 1952 soft cover Fine 
Crisp, clean, seemingly unused, map of Florida -- just the thing for a 50's road trip. What's neat about it is that you could use the front address lines and send it back home to friends and family. This one, however, was not sent.The map sports color photos and when folded is larger than the maps issued by the service stations. Closed it meaures 5"x8-1/2". There's extra tourist info too, such as a list of the meanings of Florida Indian names. Note on front -- "Drive safely .... prevent sorrow." This was a time when kids bounced around the backseat of the car like balls for playing jacks. I was one of them!!

Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
8 Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
Chicago Rand McNally 1937 Second Edition soft cover Good-plus condition 
Very handsome booklet with many large photographs throughout. It came from a travel service affiliated with the Higbee department store in Cleveland, Ohio as per stamp on the back cover. This is a second version of the original which was a brochure and published in 1922. This one measures 8" x 9" and has 38 pages. The photographs are beautiful in black and white with a wash of pink to many. The text invites the visitor to see the Grand Canyon from various spots. Especially nice was the comment from Theodore Roosevelt on page one, "The Grand Canyon of Arizona fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison -- beyond description -- absolutely unparalleled throughout the wide world. Let this wonder of nature remain as is now is .... " Booklet is clean with a just three very small tears to cover edges which I repaired on reverse side with small pieces of archival tape.

Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
10 Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
Columbus, Ohio Hartman Stock Farm 1904 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a horse lover's information/advertising book issued by S.C. and M.D. Hartman, importers and breeders of Percheron Draft and German Coaching horses for their Columbus, Ohio farm. The Hartmans also operated a poultry department, but the only reference to that here is a full page color ad and a few pictures of outbuildings and a couple pages of info. The spotlight is definitely on the horses. Contents include, among other topics, these: the Barb, or the horse of the Sahara; an anatomical study of the horse; a study of the mouth of a horse; description and illustrations of Hartman Farm; origin of the Percheron; imported Percherons, home bred Percherons; and the German coach horse. Book is clean and tightly bound, measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 189 pages printed on quality coated paper. Only faults are a spine crease and a bit of light foxing to exterior page edges. Otherwise quite good. Hard to find.

Invitation 25th Anniversary Pomorean Literary Society Scio College (Ohio 1893)
11 Invitation 25th Anniversary Pomorean Literary Society Scio College (Ohio 1893)
Scio, Ohio Pomorean Literary Association Scio College 1893 Near fine 
Pretty invitation professionally printed and then decorated with flowers and ribbon by hand. The invitation is one-sided and printed on heavy card stock with decorative scalloped edges on all four sides. It measures 4"x6-1/2" and is in very nice condition. I failed to find anything about the sponsoring group, but Scio College had more lives than a cat. It began as Rural Seminary, a Methodist Episcopal school, and then became New Market College named for its town, and then it was the One Study University which required students to take classes only in their major. That apparently didn't worked out that well, as they dropped the idea and named it Scio College for the town of Scio. Enrollment dropped, however, so the pharmacy department was taken over by the University of Pittsburgh and everything else merged with Mt. Union. A scarce item, but a nice find for the right person.

Magnetic Declination in the United States 1935
13 Magnetic Declination in the United States 1935
Washignton D.C. U.S. Department of Commerce 1935 soft cover Good 
I must admit that I had no idea what magnetic declination was when I bought this booklet. The mystery of it intrigued me and I'm forever attracted to huge maps in small booklets. As it turns out, magnetic declination refers to the angle on the horizontal plane between magnetic north (the direction in which the north end of a compass needle points), and true north (the direction along a meridian towards the geographic North Pole). Apparently this angle varies depending on one's position on the Earth's surface, and over time. So this booklet charts it in the U.S. in 1935. The large fold-out map offers a picture of the changes. The map measures 23"x28" and is crisp and clean with no tears. The booklet measures 6"x9" and has 47 pages illustrated with tables of info. As you can see, the cover shows some smudges. I ran a document pad over it, but it proved impervious.

Nautical Chart 12324 New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway Sandy Hook to Little Egg Harbor (1975)
14 Nautical Chart 12324 New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway Sandy Hook to Little Egg Harbor (1975)
Washington D.C. U.S. Department of Commerce; National Oceanicand Armospheric Adminsitration; Ocean Survey 1975 Edition 13 Card cover Good folder, fine map 
Nautical charts are interesting and this one is huge. The folder is a bit toned and has a couple small abrasions -- one at upper left hand corner at front and one on back of the folder at the middle left. Both sides of it offer extended information. I opened the map to its length and measured it at 15" x 57" long (see photos). The map is pristine with no tears to folds -- no defects at all. The map's scale is 1.40.000 nautical miles.There's also a brochure inside with a 1975 tide table for Long Beach Island and vicinity published by Sandy's Sport Shop of Surf City, New Jersey.

Ontario Non-Resident Angling License 1955
15 Ontario Non-Resident Angling License 1955
Ontario, Canada Ontario Canada Department of Lands & Forests 1955 soft cover good 
This 1955 fishing license was issued to a man from Parma, Ohio off to Canada on an "angling vacation." The license is a small booklet which contains pertinent details about the issuee, as well as Ontario "fishery regulations" and info on the Game and Fisheries Act. It shows browning on both front and back covers, as well as a loss of the top layer of paper at the bottom back corner (small). All fishing coupons are still intact, so Mr. Martin must not have been too lucky. The coupons are very specific, each for a different type of fish and each allowing for 5 or six of most species, but only one each for Atlantic salmon, quananiche, and sturgeon.Light blue pages very clean and tightly bound

Postcard Fire Department Headquarters, Indianapolis, Ind.
17 Postcard Fire Department Headquarters, Indianapolis, Ind.
Indianapolis, Indiana Majestic Publishing Company circa early 1900's Good-plus condition 
What a colorful and interesting scene this is. Not only does it show a handsome fire station, but also vehicles, fire fighters, and the horse power that fueled the machinery. The card shows a tiny bit of corner wear and writing on divided back. It was never sent, but it has been written on across the dividing line with no attempt at an address. The writing is a little hard to read, but the gist of it is the writer was busy with company and likes the recipient's choice of cards. Nothing too exciting there, but the picture at the front is great. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcard Market Avenue Shopping Center at Night Canton, Ohio
18 Postcard Market Avenue Shopping Center at Night Canton, Ohio
Chicago Curteich 40's-50's Fine 
Saturated color and a glimpse of a vibrant shopping area makes this Canton, Ohio vintage postcard desirable. The card has not been postally used and has no writing on it. Crisp and clean. Though it says "shopping center" on the card it's not the typical strip mall, but rather a center comprise ofcollective stores. I can make out the names of two -- Woolworth's and McCreary's. If it's the McCreary's I think it is it was a department store. The card will arrive in a plastic sleeve.
