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.

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.

Our Home Scrapbook No. 3, Masonite Corporation (1943)
11 Our Home Scrapbook No. 3, Masonite Corporation (1943)
U.S.A. Masonite Corproation 1943 Scrapbook No. 3 soft cover Very good condition 
I acquired this along with several other booklets advertising the dream of a new or renovated home after WWII. Most of them were dated a little closer to the end of the war -- this one is earlier at 1943. The goal was to assuage the pent-up desire with the promise of new items, new technologies, new homes. The charming French house on the first spread is the perfect opener, even if too small by today's standards. The booklet offers much information on kitchens, insulation, entrance doors, farm buildings and much more. It measures 8-1/2" x 11" with 22 pages and sports a nice Cleveland, Ohio ad for the Appalachian Hardwood Lumber Co. on the back cover. Very nice collectible.

12 Portage County Farm Bureau First Annual Year Book 1932 (Ohio)
Portage County, Ohio Portage County Farm Bureau 1932 First Edition soft cover Very good 
Just got this from a collector who loved farm related ephemera. It's fairly hard to find, but interesting not only for its farm content, which mostly consists of the make-up of the bureau in various Portage Co. towns, but for its local names and accompanying advertising. Booklet measures 6"x9" and has 44 pages. Covers the following towns: Atwater, Aurora, Brimfield, Charlestown, Deerfield, Edinburg, Mantua, Palmyra, Paris, Randolph, Ravenna, Rootstown, Shalersville, Streetsboro, Suffield and Windham.

I've never seen this magazine until last week when I got a few of them. This issue is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. The magazine measures 7" x 8-1/2" and has 63 pages.The articles are long which is why there are three articles: The Borning Struggle: The Civil Rights Movement -- An Interview with Bernice Johnson; My Life, Jessie Lopez de la Cruz (farm workers); and A Rank and File Strike at G.E.. All articles are accompanied by large black and white photographs.

The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
17 The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
Philadelphia E. F. Houghton & Company 1964-1972 soft cover Very good condition 
I haven't seen these quirky little magazines since I first started in business 19 years ago. So I'm pretty tickled to find them again. Houghton just celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. To celebrate they printed a special issue of the popular magazine which was closed down in 2008. These 13 I have now are nice and clean, all identical in format and design -- just different accent colors. They're small in size measuring just 4"x7" and are billed as a publication "for people who like to do their own thinking." Topics range from products made by the company and other interesting things that have nothing to do with it. Let's start with the industrial articles which include these products: Cindol lubricants high-temp lubes, Houghto-Safe 1120, Houghton custom molded rubber parts and I-rings and more. The rest of the articles cover these topics and more: Football as big business, metal-working in a blind school, the big boom for small boats, Houghton in Sweden, Soccer Discovers America, the progress and problems of trucking, tuna fishing off Rhode Island, our farm paradox, in defense of industry, living costs around the world, and sports highest paid lightweights. The magazines measure 4" x7" and have 46 pages each. Issues include these: April 1964, Dec. 1964, Feb. 1967, June 1967, Dec., 1967, April 1968, June 1968, Sept. 1968, April 1969, Sept 1969, Dec. 1969, June 1971. Fall 1972.

Warren Real Estate Exchange  Warren, Ohio, Cleveland,Ohio 1899-1900 C.H. Struble (Advertising pamphlet)
18 Warren Real Estate Exchange Warren, Ohio, Cleveland,Ohio 1899-1900 C.H. Struble (Advertising pamphlet)
Warren,Ohio C.H. Struble 1899 soft cover Good-plus 
This is a fascinating little item -- a turn of the century pamphlet published to sell property in the Warren/Cleveland, Ohio markets. The agent was C.H. Struble and it's his picture on the front. When closed the pamphlet measures 3-1/4"x6-1/2", but opens to a large single page with printing on both sides. For such a small thing it certain offers a lot of information! Large deals and loans were a specialty, but he also offered a varied array of properties including a 10 room summer house on 29 acres with a bank barn and out-buildings, considered to be "a very desirable summer residence for any business man of Pittsburg, Youngstown or Cleveland." He also offered five lots on West Market and suggested exchanging a good farm for city property. Most of the text, however, is comprised of descriptions of various properties with one "xed" out. I tried to find info on C.H. Struble, but he seems to be lost to time. Pamphlet is clean and nice, but I did have to repair a few tears with almost invisible, non-browning archival tape.

German Prisoners in Great Britain, Charles Momjian
19 Charles Momjian German Prisoners in Great Britain
Bolton and London, England Tillotson and Sons Ltd. 1940's Presumed First Card cover Good condition 8-1/4 x 10-1/2 American Ambassador in Berlin 
The huge amount of photographs in black and white of pictures es of the lives of German prisoners in Great Britain. Each picture is as large as the booklet itself. There are 62 pages and all are elegant images at the theatre, playing tennis, making model ships, football, a tailor's shop,working in the poultry farm, instructions in English language, gardening, and many other things -- both of whoch are work and enjoyment. The book is clean and attractive, thought there is some light browning to the early pages.The only other defect is a repair made by a previous owner who used book tape which is very strong, likely for some problems on the outer edge of the cover.
