Californie Illustration Pour L'Exposition De Paris 1900. California Paris Exposition.
6 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.

Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
7 Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
Springfield, Ohio Crowell-Collier Publishing Co. 1943 Volume 112, No. 2 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean magazine with just two faults -- a little foxing to bottom margin on reverse side of cover and the mailing label at front. Otherwise it's tightly bound and attractive. Measures 10-1/2"x13". The issues from the WWII era are especially good -- many color ads with a military theme and a military cover. This cover features General Jonathan Wainwright, Commander of U.S. Forces on Bataan Peninsula March 18-May 6, 1942 when he was taken as a prisoner of war in Formosa. There's an article inside about it. Other interesting articles include Presidential predictions for 1944; the opium boats, sinister "pleasure ships" which sailed from Hong Kong before the Japanese were at war, but ultimately revealed Japan's silent weapon; and life behind barbed wire. There are also a number of short stories, including one from the very popular, Faith Baldwin,

Cracked Magazine, November 1964
10 Cracked Magazine, November 1964
New York Major Magazines 1964 Number 40 soft cover Very Good 
We often see later issues of this humor magazine, but the ones from the 60's are a bit harder to find. Here we have the November, 1964 issue in clean, tightly bound condition. In fact, it's fairly remarkable given the pulp paper on which its printed. Among the zany articles are these: The Transylvanian Teen Scene, the Big War, A Martian Writes Home from Earth, Way Out -- West, How I Saw Europe on 58 Cents A Day; and A Sunday At Coney Island. The magazine measures 8"x10-1/2" and is clean and bright. Black and white cartoon format.

Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper March 16, 1889 (President  Harrison Inauguration. Sunday Drink Question. Anarchist Sunday Schools)
13 Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper March 16, 1889 (President Harrison Inauguration. Sunday Drink Question. Anarchist Sunday Schools)
Frank Leslie 1869 Vol. LXVIII, No. 1,748 soft cover Very Good condition 
This popular 19th century newspaper is quite large at 11" across and 16-1/2" tall. It appears to have been bound with other issues at one time, as there is one section at top which remains threaded. The cover depicts the swearing in of Honorable G. Blaine as Secretary of State. Harrison had just won the presidential election, so much ink was used discussing his inaugural address, his cabinet choices,settling in with his family in the White House, the departure of Grover Cleveland, and a picture of celebratory fireworks at the Washington Memorial. The other two things that jumped out were anarchist Sunday schools and the Sunday drink question which of course continued for decades. Newspaper is clean and has no tears. I have several others from the same year, so if you are looking for a specific issue let me know. It will arrive flat. Ships in the U.S. for $2. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but please contact me with destination so I can supply an actual postage quote.

Gourmet Magazine (2 issues, March & May, 1962)
14 Gourmet Magazine (2 issues, March & May, 1962)
New York Gourmet Inc. 1962 soft cover Very Good 
I bought these from a cookbook collector who kept them clean and beautiful for many decades. Gourmet was definitely a top tier publication for those interested in creative dining. It's interesting to see how even gourmet food has changed while some classics live on. Among the writers is Lucius Beebe. I remember selling Beebe's railroad titles back when I first became a bookseller and was amazed to find that he's also Lucius Beebe the foodie. Both magazines have great color ads and articles covering pre-summer suppers(you have to SEE the picture with this one to believe it!), dandelion wine,a woman's fond recollection of her grandmother's African American cook, the literary history of the potato, Thai food, eggs, blue trout and more. I have quite a few of these from 1963 and a couple from 1964, so if you're looking for one hit the contact button and I;ll see if I have it. Eventually they'll all be on here.

Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians Booklet (SIGNED by Lombardo & Band Members, 1950's)
16 Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians Booklet (SIGNED by Lombardo & Band Members, 1950's)
Hollywood, California Popular Programs circa 1950's Card cover Good condition 
I almost passed this one by because of the inked name on the front cover and the wear along the spine. But I opened it anyway and there was Guy Lombardo's signature! From there it got even better -- I found four more signatures from band members -- Bill Flanagan, guitarist and vocalist; Kenny Gardner, vocalist; Cliff Grass, saxman and clarinetist; Victor Lombardo, youngest brother (saxaphonist); and a name I can't decipher. It's next to Lebert Lombardo, but it's a conundrum because the first name seems to be Lebert, but the last name looks like it ends with "t." Booklet is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs and provides much information about Guy Lombardo and his family and band. As stated, the booklet has some issues, but it's still tightly bound and clean and of course the signatures are historic.
