24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
1 24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
U.S.A. American Preservation Unknown date Unknown edition Disbound Articles Very Good Condition 
I found these disbound articles in a box of Architectual Review Magazines which I bought at auction. I almost tossed them out until I realized how worthy they are. Each of the 24 focuses on a particular area within a state located anywhere in the country. They all derived from American Preservation magazine, so the color photographs are stunning. Each article is pretty long with many images. I wish I had more room to show them. Areas are these: New Orleans Lower Garden District; Providence, Rhode Island; Salem Massachusetts; Eutaw, Alabama's Greek Revival Architecture; Galveston, Texas; Mizner's Eden Palm Beach's Flamboyant Architecture; Brownsville, Texas; Waterford, Virginia; Helena, Montana; Columbus, Georgia; Madison, Indiana; Eureka Springs, Arkansas; Key West, Florida; Jacksonville, Oregon; Mt. Auburn in Cincinnati, Ohio; Manchester area of Pittsburgh; Savannah, Georgia; Powelton Village, Philadelphia; Saratoga Springs, New York; Crested Butte in the Rocky Mts.; Detroit's Woodward East; Oakland cemetery; Galena, Illinois and Bay View, A Summer Resort in Michigan. All are clean and stapled. Will still ship for $2 media in the U.S. as always.

Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
2 Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
New York, New York The New York Botanical Garden June, 1920 Volume 5, No. 2 soft over Very good 
Beautiful publication -- not exactly a magazine, but rather a sequential section which offers beautiful color plates and popular descriptions of the plants. The idea was to subscribe and every so often a new installment would be added to the whole which could then be bound when completed. This installment begins on page 17 and finishes on page 32. There are eight plates printed on heavy coated paper, plus the accompanying information on each. Plants include button-bush, common corylopsis, climbing fumitory, shining aphelandra, beaked hazel-nut, showy obedient plant, hydrangea, and dyphilla. Measures 7-1/2"x11-1/2". Very beautifully done and very clean. I think there was a yapped edge at the sides at one time, but they tear so badly that they usually either fall off or get trimmed off. This one appears to have been trimmed. Lovely!

Bermuda Houses and Gardens (1973)
3 Bermuda Houses and Gardens (1973)
Bermuda The Garden Club of Bermuda 1973 Second edition Card Cover Good-plus 
This is an oversized booklet measuring 9" x 12" with 81 clean, tightly bound pages. The only faults are some toning to a few areas of the white back cover and former owner's name and address in upper front corner of first page. The booklet is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs of the interiors and exteriors of some of the island's most stunning residences at the time of writing, many of which were already 300 years old! Very handsomely presented on quality coated paper.

Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
6 Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XI, No. 3 soft cover Good 
There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows several creases at the corner. There's also a small bit of wear to both the top and bottom of the spine, but it doesn't impinge on the binding at all. Everything is tight. Now then, the best story in this issue is a TEN PAGE extravaganza about Japanese cloth. If you love textiles, or all things Japanese as I do, this one's a keeper! Other articles are about International Cement, Soviet Art, symphony finance, Social Security, the six day bike race at Madison Square Garden, and Duparquet, the company which provided quality cooking utensils and kitchen design. Magazine is huge at 11"x14", but still ships for $2.00 in the U.S. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but due to size and weight the shipping will be higher. Contact me with destination and I will provide an actual cost. No obligation.

French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
7 French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
Paris Reutlinger No date Near Fine 
The tinting of this card is so subtle you don't notice it at first glance. But there are green leaves and a pale pink gown. I'm not sure what this lovely lady is doing, but she's definitely in a flower garden. The card has not been used, so no real clue to date. But it appears to be from the early 1900's. The back is not divided and bears no writing. Up in the left hand corner at front it says that it's part of series no. 12.

Pittsburgh, PA The Mattress Company. The Buhl Foundation. The Pittsburgh Foundation circa 1994 Card cover Very good condition 
This is an interesting look at community rehabilitation. The large booklet takes the reader on a stroll to see "a mixed-use urban district integrating arts, education, commerce and residences, providing a convenient and safe main street environment." Twelve properties on North Avenue and Federal Street were the two thoroughfares to determine Garden Square North. There's also a wonderful card mapping it all out including the buildings and can even be glued to be more dimensional. The booklet measures 11" x 12-1/4" and is clean and tightly bound. No names or writing.

Menu Wagon Wheel Waikiki's Unique Garden Restaruant (1945)
9 Menu Wagon Wheel Waikiki's Unique Garden Restaruant (1945)
Waikiki, Hawaii Wagon Wheel Restaurant 1945 Card cover Good condition 
This restaurant has long been closed, but it was managed by Sally Close (how ironic) in 1945. Oddly, the food could be served in the Midwest with the exception of alligator pears and papaya. Roast leg of lamb with guava jelly was $1.35, one of the two most expensive entrees on the list.There doesn't seem to be a wine list even though it's a dinner menu. Dinner, however, was served from noon to 8:30 p.m.The menu needed some TLC, so I repaired three tears on the reverse side. The menu itself had been stapled badly so that part of it hung out the side. So I took off the staple, ironed the cresae and restabled. A nice collectible of Hawaii past.

Unknown publisher Publisher not stated Unknown date, circa early 1900's Very good condition 
What a charming Valentine! Not only is it pretty, but it also retains it's ability to stay open. When folded flat the white portion clearly reads "To my Valentine."

It reads "To My Valentine: In these blue forget-me-nots, In these fragrant roses too, Read the message fond and true, From my faithful heart to you." The card shows no names or personalized writing.

Postcard Market Street Palace Hotel San Francisco, California
11 Postcard Market Street Palace Hotel San Francisco, California
SanFrancsico, California Scenic View Card Company No Date Fine condition 
Bright, color saturated view of San Francisco's Market Street with the spotlight on the Palace Hotel in the foreground. Also of interest are the trolleys painted in sherbet hues. An exceptionally pretty card. It's amazing that this card was ever postmarked though because the sender provided two different names and addresses. The first one omits the state and shortens the name of the town. I know it was supposed to be Springfield, Ohio because I have had many postcards addressed to this recipient. Mesasage reads "Drove on this street the Sunday we went to Golden Gate Park. Ate lunch in the Cliff House on the ocean front and had tea and cakes in the Oriental Garden. Took a nice drive along the coast. Have been to the Yosemite National Park, a marvelous place. Amy V." Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

New York Art In America Magazine 1965 second printing with revision card cover Very Good Condition 
In 1964 the Museum of Modern Art in New York City closed for several months to construct two new wings, enlarge the Sculpture Garden, and extensively remodel the main building. While all this was underway Art in America Magazine ran an article about it which was printed later as this booklet. It sold out of the first printing immediately, so this second printing was added with new information to keep it current. In addition to the history and facts about the still thriving museum there are beautiful color pictures of Rousseau, Picasso, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Matisse, Chagall, John Marin, Max Beckmann, Braque, Joseph Pickett, Edward Hopper, Joan Miro, and Jackson Pollock.

The General Motors Train of Tomorrow (Advertising Brochure 1947)
18 The General Motors Train of Tomorrow (Advertising Brochure 1947)
Detroit, Michigan General Motors Corporation 1947 soft cover Very good 
Fun advertising vehicle for a special train. It's a fold-out and each panel makes the entire train on one side while the reverse side of the panels are each devoted to an aspect of the cutting-edge design. Folded, this is a small item at 3-1/4"x5-1/2", but fully extended it's 32" long! The idea for the train emerged in 1944 as a promotional model, but ended up full-sized. Among the many unusual features are a chair car for 72 people with carpeted aisles, reclining chairs and individual lighting; a dining car which boasted an Astra Dome where 18 lucky passengers could enjoy all the amenities of a roof garden with great food and air conditioning; luxurious sleeping accommodations, panoramic views. and two cocktail lounges. What a trip!
