Embossed German Postcard Merry Xmas Holly Little Girl Red Coat & Muff
1 Embossed German Postcard Merry Xmas Holly Little Girl Red Coat & Muff
F. Beuthien 1909 Very Good 
A pretty embossed German postcard wishes A Merry Xmas to You. Red coats and white fur muffs seems to have been all the rage for little girls at Christmas at the turn of the century -- but what a charming image it makes. This card is still crisp and was not postally used. It's addressed to a Miss Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota and the small message on the divided back read "With best wishes for a Merry Christmas From Eddie."

German Embossed Postcard Merry Christmas Girl in Red Coat & Muff by Fence
2 German Embossed Postcard Merry Christmas Girl in Red Coat & Muff by Fence
Germany 1908 Very good 
All dressed up for Christmas in a red coat, a fur-trimmed hat, and a muff. This card is German and is embossed which is why the penciled message on the back is virtually unreadable. It was sent, however, to Miss Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The date on the postage stamp is likewise obscured, but it appears to be 1908. Card will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Germany Westphalia Hesse and the Weser Hills 1936 Travel Brochure
3 Germany Westphalia Hesse and the Weser Hills 1936 Travel Brochure
Berlin Reichsbahnzentrale fur den Deutschen Reiseverkehr 1936 soft cover Very good condition 
What makes this brochure and map interesting is the pink printing inside the front and back covers announcing the XIth Olympic Games in Berlin, Germany in 1936. Most of these brochures are from 1937, so I was surprised to see it. The 1936 Games were very controversial given the atmosphere in Germany at that time. It's still often referred to as Hitler's Olympics. The brochure measures 4" x 9" and opens to become three times as big as when closed. There are many black and white photographs, plus the usual sort of information for tourists in 32 pages. There is also an exceptionally nice crisp map at back (see photo) which measures 12 x 13"

Huge Fuzzy Die-cut Valentine with Stand
4 Huge Fuzzy Die-cut Valentine with Stand "I'm Pup-Posin That You're Mine"
Unknown Unknown Unknown Very Good 
This is TOO cute -- and I'm actually a cat person! But who could resist such an adorable puppy, especially one with fuzzy velvety black fur! He's die-cut with a stand at the back that has never been used and has no names or writing (see photo 2).His message says, "I'm Pup-posin' That You're Mine; I Love You. I never Growl or Snarl, It's True -- But I'd Snap at the Chance of Winning You!" At the highest point -- from heart to bottom edge -- the card measures 12" tall and is 9-1/2" wide at the bottom.

Lace Thorough the Centuries 1600-1920 (Exihbition catalog 1986), Henley, Bryding  Adams
16 Henley, Bryding Adams Lace Thorough the Centuries 1600-1920 (Exihbition catalog 1986)
Birmingham, Alabama Birmingham Museum of Art 1986 Second printing Card cover Very good condition 
The story of handmade lace has always interested me. Those who wore it were rich - those who made it went blind. At one point it was so valuable that dogs were relieved of their fur which was replaced with a fur "coat" that was stuffed with lace so it could be smuggled. I doubt that story is in here, as the focus is on the exhibit which was held in 1984. This was a second printing in 1986. It covers needlepoint lace, bobbin lace, bobbin applique lace, machine lace and imitation lace, plus lace clothing. Booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11 with 42 pages. All photos are described at back. Very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing.

There is also a sticker from a London gallery affixed to the inside back cover. Lithography and woodcuts celebrate the depth of black against white.
