1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
1 1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
New York Empire State Railway Museum Inc. 1971 Sixth annual soft cover All items very good 
This is an interesting combination of items, all in one from a previous collector. The 6th Annual Steam Passenger Service Directory of 1971 was stuffed with numerous newspaper stories about trains, primarily from the Toledo, Ohio area during the 70's. These did cause some toning to the reverse side of cover, both front and back, but I have sequestered them now in a plastic bag in which they will arrive. Also accompanying the directory are a brochure, a business card and an unused ticket, all from the Toledo Lake Erie and Western Railway, Inc. The directory measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 128 page , all of which contain a black and white photograph, plus info on each train.

Baker Lake Prints 1988 (Canadian Indigenous Art)
5 Baker Lake Prints 1988 (Canadian Indigenous Art)
Baker Lake, Ottawa, Canada Canadian Arctic Producers 1988 0920234879 / 9780920234877 Card cover Very good condition 
This is an interesting booklet about Canadian indigenous art from the Baker Lake area of Ottawa. It began with the Sanavik co-operative which endeavored to create a print program. Unfortunately it didn't catch fire right away, so instead of producing huge numbers of art prints they decided to choose carefully and confine each to a limited edition of no more than 50 copies. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 39 pristine pages. The only fault is some light sunning to spine. There are real photographs of the area and its people, both black and white aand color art, and photos of the artists at work.

Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
6 Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
England The Beatrix Potter Society 1986 soft cover Very Good condition 
What a surprise find this morning! Nine years ago I bought several full years of the newsletters of the Beatrix Potter Society and four booklets like this one filled with papers presented at the Society's Beatrix Potter Lake District Study Conference. All of it is long gone, but somehow this little straggler landed with a bunch of unrelated items. The booklet's articles re these: Lake District Natural History and Beatrix Potter; The Beatrix Potter Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia; Collecting Beatrix Potter; Beatrix Potter Piracies and Sequels; and Bertram Potter and the Scottish Borders. Booklet is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. Measure 7-1/2" x 8" and has 52 pages.

Great Lakes Exposition Cleveland Centennial June 27 to Oct. 4, 1936 (Brochure)
12 Great Lakes Exposition Cleveland Centennial June 27 to Oct. 4, 1936 (Brochure)
Cleveland, Ohio Great Lake Exposition 1936 soft cover Good-plus condition 
This small brochure is not seen too often, and yet it's for the first year of the event which coincided with Cleveland's Centennial. The paper is still crisp and clean, but there is a small tear to the bottom of the fold on one of the panels. Look carefully and you can set it in too of the photos. It had been repaired with what I think is archival tape. The brochure measures 3" x 6-1/4" and opens to 12" with text on both sides of all panels. A lot of information here despite limited space! Nice collectible.

Lake Deering Park Greetings From Portland, Maine
14 Lake Deering Park Greetings From Portland, Maine
Portland, Maine Hugh C. Leighton No Date Very Good 
I think this is the prettiest card showing Deering Park in Portland, Maine I've ever seen. The white caption at the bottom left corner adds to the attractiveness. The card has not been used and is very crisp and clean with just a tiny wear spot at tip of both right corners and a small discoloration at back above stamp box. The stamp box at back is the clue that it's an older card, as it states, "One cent for United States and Island Possessions, Cuba, Canada and Mexico. Two Cents for Foreign."

Photograph Album Camp Whipporwill Grayling,Michigan 1927
16 Photograph Album Camp Whipporwill Grayling,Michigan 1927
Grayling, Michigan Home-made 1927 Card cover Very Good 
Though slim, this lovely clean album captures in eleven photographs a July vacation in Grayling, Michigan, known for its summer get-aways. The pictures are all of the same group, both men and women. Some views are scenic -- a lake, a bridge, a winding road,and a nice log cabin, but there are also people enjoying archery practice, women on the lake in a canoe, posed shots on the bridge, an old car stuffed with people, a shed showing three old cars lined up inside and a car with an open trailer filled with stuff outside in front of the cabin where a man observes. The album measures 6"x8-1/2" and the photos are roughly 3-1/2"x6". The only fault is mottling to the back cover with dark and lighter areas

Findlay, Ohio No photographer stated 1908 Very good condition
