Bicycle Certificate and Warranty Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895
3 Bicycle Certificate and Warranty Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895
Chicago Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895 Good-plus 
At the time this manufacturer's certificate and warranty was extended in 1895 bicycles were all the rage. The warranty was good for a year from the date stated, October 14, 1895. Here's what is promises: " This is to certify that the Oxford Bicycle No. 1113 is warranted to be free from defective materials or workmanship, and we will make good any defects found, free of charge, when such part or parts are returned to us (all charges prepaid) for examination. The guarantee does not apply to damage resulting from accident, rough usage, or neglect." It also mentions that the Morgan and Wright's Pneumatic Tires which were used on the bikes were guaranteed by Morgan and Wright. The certificate/warranty measures 7-3/4" x 9" and is very readable with no tears. There are a few spots of foxing, but very minor. It had also been folded, but I ironed it and flattened it in the book press.

Broadside: Pennsylvania Lines Excursions to Loudonville, Ohio Free Street Fair October 8th and 9th, 1902
4 Broadside: Pennsylvania Lines Excursions to Loudonville, Ohio Free Street Fair October 8th and 9th, 1902
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Lines 1902 Good condition 
Very nice broadside with crisp, bright blue printing. The Loudonville Free Street Fair is still held every year, so it's fun to see an early advertisement. The Pennsylvania lines were offering tickets for riound trips for $1.35 to as little as 30 cents. There were three groups of prices -- the first included Crestline, Mansfield, Lucas, and Perryville. Group two included Orrville, Smithville, Wooster, Shreve, Custaloga, Big Prairie and Lakeville. and the third group consisted of Coshocton, Warsaw Junction, Mohawk, Walhonding, Cavallo, Brink Haven, and Edlam. The broadside measures 6-1/4" x 18-3/4". I repaired three small tears with archival tape, but you can't even see them. There is a previous piece of tape on the back and one small area with a small white sticker to the tack mark at the top. The back of the sign is filled with penciled algebra problems!

Cabinet Card Musician With Horn (Portsmouth, Ohio 1890)
5 Cabinet Card Musician With Horn (Portsmouth, Ohio 1890)
Portsmouth, Ohio S. Kiefer Art Studio 1890 Very Good 
This is a very handsome cabinet card produced by the Art Studio of S. Kiefer of Portsmouth, Ohio. The subject is wearing a band uniform, but the only guess as to what band it was is the word on his hat. I used a magnifying glass to read "Civic" which could mean that he played in the town band. At any rate, someone penned the date on the front of the card -- October 2, 1890. The studio that made this must have been upscale, as the sides of the card are scalloped and colored in gilt. The back of the card is lovely too -- it's a shame that a former seller had placed two stickers on the back --one left a blemish to the very top and the second one is still there. The photographer offered this info, "Negatives preserved for future orders. Children's pictures a specialty. Instantaneous Process Used exclusively."

Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Indians Baseball 1993 soft cover Very good 
These items came together so I am leaving them together, as both are mementos of the last Cleveland Indians baseball season to be held at the old Cleveland Stadium. The magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" and still retains its unused scorecards for the final series at Cleveland Stadium. It's a glossy magazine with lots of photos and Cleveland baseball history. Magazine is clean and bright with just one tear to lower front corner which was repaired on reverse side with tape by former owner. The print measures 8"x11" also and shows likenesses of Andre Thornton, Mel Harder, Bob Feller and Lou Boudreau. The text reads "Tribute to Cleveland Stadium October 2, 1993." Nice package!

Gun and Cartridge Record October, 1953
13 Gun and Cartridge Record October, 1953
Chagrin Falls, Ohio Gun and Cartridge Record Inc. 1953 Vol. II No. 7 soft cover Very good 
This one's a cross between a newspaper and a magazine. Retains the newspaper look, but the paper itself is much more substantial which is why it looks so nice. This is NOT the publication of the same name issued by Andy Palmer of Michigan. This one is harder to find and came from Ohio, though Palmer's is getting to be scarce too. The magazine measures 12"x18" and has 12 pages of dense text. It's clean, crisp and bright with just some light toning to edges at spots and darkening at crease. The articles are all short and cover a wide range of subjects, including Micahel Corcoran, a colorful officer in the Civil War, the history of the cartridge, handloading, panzers, an Italian anti-personnel land mine and much more. There are also book reviews, classifieds, and current prices of various arms. I have about a half dozen of these all from the 50's, so if you want a run-down on what's available use the contact button and I'll get back to you.

House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
16 House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
Concord, New Hmapshire House Beautiful Publishing Corporation Vol. LXIV, No. IV soft cover Very Good condition 
The cover art of these magazines scream "come hither!" They're bold, colorful and graphically sensational. I was at an auction which had six boxes of them.To say they were a hit is an understatement -- they sold in a frenzy for more money than they should have. I got the last box, which was as good as the rest, but at the end of the frenzy. There's much to read here about homes and gardens with gorgeous full color ads for house items -- roofs, tiles, paints etc.. One of the more interesting stories is about the scissor craft of silhouette making and William Henry Brown who long ago snipped out beautiful images. Other articles cover peony walks, Holland bulbs, wisteria, Pompeiian gardens, house renovations, a well appointed desk, china services on display in Paris, architecture, stone versus stone masonry and much more. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 12-1/2" and is an inch thick. SHIPS FOR $2 IN THE U.S.

Munsey Magazine October 1896
20 Munsey Magazine October 1896
New York Frank A. Munsey 1896 Vol. XVI No. I soft cover Good 
It's interesting how Munsey Magazine had a HUGE circulation and yet it's less well known than Century, Harper's and Frank Leslie's. I just got six issues though so am happy as a clam. Before I tell you about this one though here's a fun fact about Munsey -- it was considered a bit racy and some stores would not stock it due to its "undressed women and undressed statuary." This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, a previous owner trimmed off the overhang of the yapped edges-- a common reaction when they develop chips and tears. Magazine offers great ads, fiction and articles The best of the latter includes a piece about the Carroll family of Viriginia (Charles Carroll); and two back to back articles that almost share the same title -- first, Types of Fair Women and then Types of Modern War Ships. I guess they're both called She, so why not? There's also tons of stuff on the actors and actresses of the day, as well as a piece on current artists. with portraits. Altogether fun!
