Scully Jones Company Slide No. 3
3 Scully Jones Company Slide No. 3
Chicago, llinois Scully-Jones and Company Unknown, but pre-1963 
I am fascinated by these sorts of little measuring devices -- can't let one pass me by. This one is not dated, but it's before zip codes which means it's from before 1963. It was made by Scully-Jones, designers and manufacturers of standard and special production tools, including tap and drill chucks, arbors, cutting tools, boring equipment, centers and more. This device provides dimensions for quickly drawing or machining Brown & Sharpe tapers. The slide is in good working condition and measures 4"x8" closed and twice the length when completely extended. Only faults are a small abrasion on one side on the plain white section and tiny corner chip to the reverse.

Scully Jones Selector No. 2; Dimensions for Drawing Morse Tapers
4 Scully Jones Selector No. 2; Dimensions for Drawing Morse Tapers
Chicago Scully-Jones and Company Unknown Very good 
I am fascinated by these sorts of little measuring devices -- can't let one pass me by. This one is not dated, but it's before zip codes which means it's from before 1963. It was made by Scully-Jones, designers and manufacturers of standard and special production tools, including tap and drill chucks, arbors, cutting tools, boring equipment, centers and more. This device is two sided, so it performs two functions -- providing a Morse taper number and the size of the taper per foot and per inch which is helpful for drawing them. The slide is in great condition and measures 4"x7-1/4" closed and twice the length when completely extended.

Smith & Wesson Manufacturers of Superior Revolvers (Original Envelope Plus Xtras) 1930
5 Smith & Wesson Manufacturers of Superior Revolvers (Original Envelope Plus Xtras) 1930
Springfield, Massachusetts Smith & Wesson 1930 Card cover Very good in good Envelope 
Very nice catalog plus lots of extra goodies. The main attraction of course is the catalog which has 40 pages of products. Each item is photographed and described with plenty of detail. The catalog measures 7-1/2" x 9-1/2" and is very clean with just some light foxing to first and last pages. The catalog slips into the original envelope which is quite study, though has lost its flap. There had also been a letter which came in the letter section at the bottom of the larger envelope, but it has not survived. However, there's a nice brochure about the K-22 ,the Outdoors Man's Revolver, which opens to further text on both pages and still more at back. There is also a small price guide for the 1930 catalog and a very colorful little brochure about the S. & W.".38-.44" which opens to 8-1/2"x 10-1/4" Brochure is printed on both sides. All told, this is a nice package for the collector.

The Ohio Messenger: Official Organ of the Ohio Woman's Christian Temperance Union (three issues, 1937)
6 The Ohio Messenger: Official Organ of the Ohio Woman's Christian Temperance Union (three issues, 1937)
Westerville, Ohio The Ohio Woman's Christian Temperance Union 1937 Volume L. Nos. 6. 8, 11 
I have a copy of one of these on here at this writing, dating from the early 1900's. I thought that by the 1930's that that cause had been put to rest. But no -- the organization was as passionate in the 30's to continue the war on alcohol. Two big assemblies were back-to-back in July -- first in Lakeside, Ohio and then in Lancaster, Michigan. Here's a few headlines from the Ohio Messenger: Alcohol As a Medicine; A National Outrage (the end of prohibition); Liquor's Vast Program to Reach Youth and Women Through the Magazines; New Deal In Business as Rum Manufacturers;and Why I Don't Drink Whiskey. The magazine measures 9" x 11-1/4" and each issue has fifteen pages. An interesting look at a movement charted by women.

It's Fun to Buy From Forslund's Portfolio of Quaint American Furniture (1958 catalog), Carl Forslund
7 Carl Forslund It's Fun to Buy From Forslund's Portfolio of Quaint American Furniture (1958 catalog)
Grand Rapids, Michigan Carl Forslund Inc. 1958 1958 Catalog Card cover Very good condition 
This catalog joins a list of furniture manufacturers and sellers from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. For decades they had dominated the furniture industry, but the items in this catalog are not the furniture of the 50's with its obvious modernity. Forslund's was a retro trip through colonial and rustic furniture and accessories including dishes, lamps, carpet, and more. But even within the retro look there were choices -- quaint American, Forslund farmstead, plantation pine, and American mahogany. The catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 104 pages.

The Clevelander Magazine May, 1968, Dudgeon, Thomas H.
9 Dudgeon, Thomas H. The Clevelander Magazine May, 1968
Cleveland, Ohio Greater Cleveland Growth Association 1968 Volume 45, Number 1 Soft cover Near fine condition 
This magazine traces its beginning to 1926 when the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce launched it. Over the years it shrank and grew, depending on the winds of prosperity, but in the late 60's change swept in when the Chamber of Commerce became the Greater Cleveland Growth Association. This issue from 1968 is the product of the latter, but in 1970 the magazine became a hard cover journal issued four times a year. That lasted for two years and then the Clevelander went soft cover again -- until the new kid on the clock, Cleveland Magazine, won the audience. The covers of the magazine during this period were bold and beautiful. This issue is focused on metal, specifically steel. The ads echo the editorial content -- one ad especially from Dayton Steel is terrific (see photo). Topics include metalworking, the challenges of steelmaking, laser art, Cleveland manufacturers, Stouffer Foods and much more. The magazine measures 8" x 11" and has 64 pristine, tightly bound pages. Only fault is a tiny tear to bottom edge of front cover which was stabilized by me with invisible archival tape on reverse side. (Ohio-2)

Small Bore Rifle Hand Book 1928, Lieut. Colonel Tonsend Whelen
10 Lieut. Colonel Tonsend Whelen Small Bore Rifle Hand Book 1928
New York Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute 1928 first Edition Crd cover Good-plus 
These older booklets are getting hard to find, so when this one popped up I took the offer. The booklet is overall nice, and tightly bound. It measures 6" x 9" and has 38 pages with a dense text and many black and white pohotographs throughout. The text covers equipment, markmanship, ranges and rifle clubs. The defects are these: two creases to the lower front corner which I "bandaged" with archival tape on the inside to keep it from snapping off and a name and address on the back cover. There is is also some faint penciling there, but it's very light.

Bainbridge, Ohio Collectable Treasures No date Volume One Card cove Near fine condition 
Crisp, clean booklet, slightly oversized at 7" x 10-1/2" with 34 pages including several ruled pages for notes which were never used. This is not something to read -- it's a reference guide for collectors to provide factory codes by certain manufacturers. There are also a few pages at very back with codes for edged weapons too.
