4 Detroit Cultural Center (Design Prototypes 1960's)
Detroit, Michigan Urban Design Division of Detroit City Plan Commission No date, but circa 1960's soft cover Good condition 
A spectacular design book which is not often seen. The condition shows some exterior glitches -- edge wear in spots, a chip to outer paper at outer edge of back cover and two corner creases, also at back. One is superficial, the other I have sustained with non-browning archival tape on the reverse side. This is a large book measuring 12" square with a sturdy wire binding. There is no date, but there was an easy clue in plain sight. The mayor listed inside was Jerome P. Cavanaugh who left office in 1969. Prototypes re for Includes prototype designs for the Institute of Arts, Hall of Man, Museum of Science and Technology, Planetarium, Center for the Musical and Theater Arts, and Gardens.

House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
6 House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
Concord, New Hampshire The Hosue Beauytiful Publishing Co. 1933 New England Edition soft cover Very good condition 
Crisp and incredibly clean -- the pages of this magazine are like new. This isue shows a special New England segment which introduces the love of fishing, tennis, and Bennington College, plus a renovation from stable to house, and a Rockport, Mass. home renovation. There are also gardens, notes from the southwest, French cooking utensils, and bargello needlework. But the most eye-catching is the article "Design For Living: House Number Four of the Home and Industrial Arts Group at the Century of Progress, New York World's Fair, 1933." Magazine measures 10" x 13". Only fault is some small chips to outer side of lower front cover and a few areas on spine strip which needed repair. I used non-browning archival tape to secure it and it's almost invisble. See main picture. .

House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
7 House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
Concord, New Hmapshire House Beautiful Publishing Corporation Vol. LXIV, No. IV soft cover Very Good condition 
The cover art of these magazines scream "come hither!" They're bold, colorful and graphically sensational. I was at an auction which had six boxes of them.To say they were a hit is an understatement -- they sold in a frenzy for more money than they should have. I got the last box, which was as good as the rest, but at the end of the frenzy. There's much to read here about homes and gardens with gorgeous full color ads for house items -- roofs, tiles, paints etc.. One of the more interesting stories is about the scissor craft of silhouette making and William Henry Brown who long ago snipped out beautiful images. Other articles cover peony walks, Holland bulbs, wisteria, Pompeiian gardens, house renovations, a well appointed desk, china services on display in Paris, architecture, stone versus stone masonry and much more. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 12-1/2" and is an inch thick. SHIPS FOR $2 IN THE U.S.

The Ladies' World Easter Number April, 1902
9 The Ladies' World Easter Number April, 1902
New York S.H. Moore & Co. 1902 Easter Number soft cover Very good condition 
I have never before seen this magazine and got it without even knowing it. I bought a box of Ladies Home Journals from the turn-of-the century and this was in the bottom of it. It's quite nice with no mailing label, just the usual horizontal crease. It's an oversized magazine (as many were in those days) measuring 11" x 16" and has 29 pages. There's lots to read about needlework, embroidering book covers, running the house, cooking, gardens and flowers, and mothering, plus fiction. The first story of interest is this: the Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn the Monday after Easter. Believe it or not the custom began in 1878 with 200 kids. By 1902 there were thousands. The second story is the best though!. It's about Jane Addams and Hull House in Chicago. There's a photo of her and Hull House and a lot of information about it and her work -- and all from a primary source.
