Annual Circular for the Eighth  Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
5 Annual Circular for the Eighth Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
Cleveland, Ohio The Cleveland Academy 1869 Eighth year soft cover Good-plus condition 
It's interesting that in the eighth year of the Cleveland Academy the school still sent a circular rather than a catalog to students and would-be students. The other interesting thing is that the senior and middle grade classes were populated with girls only. The junior class and the preparatory class, however, had both girls AND boys, though girls dominated. Example --the junior class had 44 girls and nine boys. Members of the graduating class were Laura Barnett, Helen P. Briggs, Fannie A. Fuller, Nettie Hall, Grace A. Kingsley, Cora Kingsley, Gussie Marchand and Ada W. Simonds. The circular shows a light skim of grayness to top front edge and an indentation to the upper fold from a paper clip. A previous owner wrote 68-9 next to the date which is 1869-70. I held it up to my magnifier and the printed date is right. A very scarce item.

10 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.

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.

Erte Exhibition 1987/88 (Price Sheet Laid-in)
11 Erte Exhibition 1987/88 (Price Sheet Laid-in)
London Sevenarts Ltd. (Grosvenor Gallery) 1987 
Beautiful, fanciful, charming -- the adjectives could be strung like pearls on a necklace to describe the works of the famous Russian artist, Erte, whose work graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar more than 200 times. Erte was a Russian artist whose early introduction to Persian art inspired him to pursue a career which included not only cover art, but costumes and stage designs of spectacular merit. This exhibit catalog is not seen often and is in clean, tightly bound condition. The art is all in color and celebrates the five year collaboration between Erte and Leon Leonidoff who from 1963-68 was director of Radio City Music Hall. The catalog marks the first time these works were ever viewed in exhibition. Included with the catalog is a price sheet still in its pocket at back. The catalog measures 8-3/4"x12" and has twenty pages.

John M. Ashbrook Late A Representative From Ohio: Memorial Addresses Delivered In Congress 1982
16 John M. Ashbrook Late A Representative From Ohio: Memorial Addresses Delivered In Congress 1982
Washington, D.C. U.S. Government Printing Office 1982 Presumed first Hard cover Fine condition 
I have seen these memorials for a couple members of the House and Senate, but this is the most contemporary. Representative John M. Ashbrook R., was a strong conservative, so much so that the 1982 Alamanac of Amderican Politics called his far right beliefs "almost a catalog of lost causes." But Ashbrook was heartily memoralized by his colleagues. The Ohioans who spoke were Clarence J. Brown, Dennis E. Eckhart, Willis D. Gradison Jr.. Tony P. Hall, Thomas N. Kindness, Delbert L. Latta, Bob McEwen, Clarence E. Miller, Michael G. Oxley, Donald J. Pease, Ralph Regula, John F. Seiberling, Bob Shamansky, Louis Stokes, Ed Weber, Chalmers P. Wylie, The Honorable John Glenn, and Haward M. Metzenbaum. The book measures 6" x 9" and is bo,ud in a handsome black cloth. The book has 96 pristine pages and no names or writing anywhere. Rep. Ashbrook died at 53.

East Hampton, New York Guild Hall Museum 1987 Card cover Fine condition 
I bought this in Michigan, so it's not surprising that a gift inscription on the bottom of the title page reads, " To---- and ----, So nice to have you in Ann Arbor." Other than that there's no defect. Crisp and clean as a whistle. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 36 pristine pages. Many black and white photographs show off mansions, family homes, vacation homes -- even an aluminum beach house. The text is lengthy and seriously addressed which deems it a collectible.
