A Seidel For Jake Wirth Jacob Wirth Co. German Restaurant (Boston, 1964)
1 A Seidel For Jake Wirth Jacob Wirth Co. German Restaurant (Boston, 1964)
Boston Stinehour Press 1964 soft cover Near fine 
The Jacob Wirth German Restaurant opened its doors in Boston in 1949. This booklet was published in 1964 as a tribute. A seidel is a lidded tankard of beer, so this is a toast to good food and good times raised by a list of people who loved it. In addition to the restaurant the Jacob Wirth Company was also a wholesaler of Rhine wine and domestic and imported beers. The booklet measures 6"x9" and has 45 pages of history and stories as well as black and white photographs and a menu at the back.

Alice (1992 Opera)
2 Alice (1992 Opera)
Hamburg, Germany Thalia Theatre 1992 soft cover Good-plus 
An uncommon item, published in tandem with the opening of the dark opera, Alice, which is based on Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The lyrics probe not the story as much as how it pertains to its author. Was not intended for children. Inside front cover (see photo two) is a small drawing signed by its artist. I can't decipher the first namel, but I do believe the last name is Zinn. I immediately thought of David Zinn who does have a history with the Thalia Theatre, but I can't say for sure that this is right. Research shows no account of him having anything to do with the set design for this show. Program is written in both German and English, primarily German, and is illustrated with both black and white photos and drawings plus color plates. Measures 8"x10-1/2" and has 64 pages plus a laid-in insert with info on the songs. Clean and tightly bound with no names or writing, but does show scratches to back cover and a small bit of edge wear, also at back.

Californie Illustration Pour L'Exposition De Paris 1900. California Paris Exposition.
7 Californie Illustration Pour L'Exposition De Paris 1900. California Paris Exposition.
Calfornia / Paris California Paris Exposition Commission 1900 soft cover Good condition 
This is such a seldom seen and beautiful booklet it's amazing that someone kept it only to let it incur defects. I never like to buy items with problems, but this one called for a rescue mission. The biggest problem when I first got it was the cloth spine strip which was completely missing on the front and the spine, but somehow remained on the back. I used a heavy brown book tape, but only on the naked parts -- if you look at the back cover you'll see the original cloth. The others issues are two snapped off corners, one page where something sticky must have caused a small abrasion, and some rubbing to gold edges. The booklet has gorgeous graphics in pastel colors and much information in three languages -- French, English and German. The booklet measures 7" x 10" and has been deeply discounted due to condition.

13 Dresden Treasures From the Saxton State Library; Belser Faksimile Editionen (1987)
Washington D.C. Library of Congress 1987 soft cover Three items -- Very Good 
These three items came together, including the mat for the faksimile illuminated papers. That item measures 8-1/2" x 12-1/2" outside the "frame" and 10-1/2" x 14" inside it. The illuminations include six pages which show the actual age spots and marks.

Generale Proklamieren Friedensregierung! WWII Propaganda Leaflet July 21,1944 (ZG 34)
17 Generale Proklamieren Friedensregierung! WWII Propaganda Leaflet July 21,1944 (ZG 34)
Germany 1944 Good 
Three tiny pin holes and remnants of two pieces of tape to upper corners are all that mar this original piece of WWII propaganda issued on July 21, 1944 following a radio speech at 1 a.m. that morning proclaiming the peace movement by leading German generals. I was able to find a translation which is the white page included with the photo. The reverse side of the original has a section which translates thus: "What This Means To You -- you know what the German Generals knew for weeks - that Germany has lost the war. The Peace Government may or may not be smashed, but no one can change the basic fact. Any German government has to capitulate in order to have peace. The conditions for you and your comrades are laid down by traditional rules of warfare and by the Geneva Convention. The generals have acted. Whatever you yourself may do remember what you now have learned." Leaflet measures 5-1/4"x8-1/2" and is printed on both sides. Includes translation.

This is really a pretty card with bright colors and virtually no wear, as it was never sent through the mail. The cardstock is exceptionally heavy and the design appears to be pasted on. It's a raised design which gives it an extra dimension. On the back it says Series 1700 Made In Germany. The divided back shows the recipient to be Sophie Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The message side says "A Happy Birthday Jan. 30, 1917 From E."

19 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.
