Singer Sewing Library Vols. 1,2,3,4 (Shortcuts to Home Sewing, How to Make Dresses, How to Make Children's Clothes, How to Make Draperies) 1930
1 Singer Sewing Library Vols. 1,2,3,4 (Shortcuts to Home Sewing, How to Make Dresses, How to Make Children's Clothes, How to Make Draperies) 1930
Singer Sewing Machine Company 1930 soft cover Good 
There should be a slipcase with these four volumes of the Singer Sewing Library, but it has apparently been lost along the way. Still we have the four booklets in good condition -- tightly bound with pristine internals. Faults are confined to the outside and are not many in number -- toning to volume 1, a small stain to cover of three, all at back with the exception of No. 1 which shows a small pink stain to lower front corner. Booklets measure 5-1/2"x8-1/4" and have 64 pages in two and 48 in the other two. All are illustrated with small drawings throughout.

The Miniature Book Collector Volume I Nos. 1-2-3-4 Plus Two Miniature Life Magazines (1960), Admomeit, Ruth
4 Admomeit, Ruth The Miniature Book Collector Volume I Nos. 1-2-3-4 Plus Two Miniature Life Magazines (1960)
Cleveland, Ohio Ruth Adomeit 1960 Volume I, Nos. 1-2-3-4 soft cover Fine condition 
These little magazines are revered by collectors and members of the Miniature Book Society which was launched by Ruth Adomeit and other like-minded bibliophiles. Adomiet lived in Cleveland, Ohio and at her time was the largest collector of miniature books in the world. The collection was bequeathed to Indiana University upon her death in 1996. Here we have the coveted first year's output -- all four magazines. In these pages, which measure 3-1/4"x4", are many topics including: how to define a miniature book; Le Petite Oiseau Press; Japanese miniature books; books about miniature books; Life Magazine in miniature; and more. Each issue has 16 pages. Also, along with the magazines are two much thinner issues of Life magazine, the very first issue which came out November 23, 1936 and a later one (no date) in full color, likely from 1960. These measure 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". Very desirable and very scarce.(Collector --Drawer I)

The Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly  1996 (Full Run Vol. 32 Nos,1,2,3,4 Plus Vol. 31 No 4), Hanson, Charles E. Jr.
5 Hanson, Charles E. Jr. The Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly 1996 (Full Run Vol. 32 Nos,1,2,3,4 Plus Vol. 31 No 4)
Chadron, Nebraska The Museum of the Fur Trade 1996, 1995 Volume 32, Nos. 1,2,3,4; Volume 31, No. 4 soft cover Very good 
Five very nice magazines, all four present from 1996 plus the last issue of 1995 which I included because it contains Part I of an article about The First Northwest Trade Gun. Part II is in the 1996 No. 1 issue. Only fault to magazines is a small smudge to top edge of No. 4. Otherwise pristine. Magazines measure 7"x10" and have 16 pages each. Other topics include Jean Baptiste Pratt; fur traders' letters; chief coats supplied by the American Fur Company; the Monhonk Lodge, American trade goods; Indian Department marked issue blanket; voyage on the Mississippi; interesting facts on the Jedediah Smith estate; Thomas Prownall, champion of the Five Nations; British-Iroquois relations in the 18th century; the final settlement of the Jedediah Smith estate and more.
