Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
4 Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
U.S. Government 1942 Stapled papers Very good condition 
The Flying Cadets are not heard of much today, but in WWII they provided a considerable amount of personnel. Some were even on the ground working as flight engineers, armament officers, meteorologists, and photography officers. After the war, however, the ground jobs were no longer needed. The Flying Cadets, however, came back in good numbers to serve in the Korean War as pilots, navigators and bombardiers. This five page document was submitted by a Clevelander along with three positive referrals from two Cleveland companies -- two different ones from Cleveland Diesel Engine Division of General Motors and one from General Carloading Company Inc.. The four small documents are receipts for paying his premium for VA service life insurance. Three of these are dated 1945 and one is dated 1946. All are clean and nice.

Child Life Magazine January, Febrary, 1937
8 Child Life Magazine January, Febrary, 1937
Chicago Tand McNally & Company Vol. XVI, Nos. 1 & 2 soft cover Good-plus 
The covers of these magazines are a delight with bright colors and a dollop of whimsey. I put them together in one offering not only because they are sequential, but because othere's a story titled Adventures In Candle Street which is a two parter and now both parts are present. The magazine is color limited inside, but somehow that still seems to charm. Readers will find poems, stories, things to make, things to do, and special features such as junior etiquette, how a 10 year opld boy helped save the lives of six people, movie town news. There's even a secton for mothers. Magazines measure 8-1/2" x 11-1/2" and have 96 and 48 pages respectively. No mailing labels. Only fault is some loosening to front cover of the Feb. issue which I repaired with non-browning, almost invisible archival tape.

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.

There's an article inside about it.

New York New York State Council on the Arts 1971 First printing Loose pages and Hard slipcase Pages fine; Slipcase Very good 11-1/4

16 Fortune Magazine July, 1935 (Anheiser-Busch, Women In Business, Restoring Williamsburg, U.S. Smelting & Refining)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XII, No. 1 soft cover Very good 
Very clean, nice issue of one of the star magazines of the 30's. The photography is excellent, as are the articles and the magazine's design. Three topics grabbed my attention -- a colorful piece about Anheiser-Busch and its bottled beer, Part I of a story about women in business, and a look at Mr. Rockefeller's renovation of colonial Willamsburg. There's also a piece about the cotton industry, one on U.S. Smelting & Refining and a profile of Harry Hopkins. Magazine has no real defect of note. It measures 11-1/2"x14" and has 140 pages.

Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
17 Fortune Magazine March, 1935 (Japanese Silk; 6 Day Bike Race Madison Square Garden)
New York Time-Life 1935 Volume XI, No. 3 soft cover Good 
There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows several creases at the corner. There's also a small bit of wear to both the top and bottom of the spine, but it doesn't impinge on the binding at all. Everything is tight. Now then, the best story in this issue is a TEN PAGE extravaganza about Japanese cloth. If you love textiles, or all things Japanese as I do, this one's a keeper! Other articles are about International Cement, Soviet Art, symphony finance, Social Security, the six day bike race at Madison Square Garden, and Duparquet, the company which provided quality cooking utensils and kitchen design. Magazine is huge at 11"x14", but still ships for $2.00 in the U.S. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but due to size and weight the shipping will be higher. Contact me with destination and I will provide an actual cost. No obligation.

18 Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
New York Time-Life 1934 Volume IX, No. 2 soft cover Very good 
Yesterday I got thirty Fortune magazines from the 30's, so if you don't see what you want let me know and I'll see if I have it. Fortune was one of the most beautiful magazines of the Depression era and still retains interest in its articles as well as its design. This time two topics caught my attention -- the ever controversial Father Coughlin and wine production in the United States. There's also stories about radium, industrial designers, U.S. Rubber and more. The magazine is very large at 11-1/2"x14" and has 142 pages. Only faults are a small chip to top front edge and minor wear to very bottom edge of spine which does not impinge on the binding. Very handsome and no label. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but extra shipping is required due to weight and size. Same for U.S. priority. U.S. media mail is just $2.00 as stated.
