25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
1 25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
The North American Association of Venezuela 1966 soft cover Good 
Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela. Clearly, this was a big event, as the ads in the program are largely national -- Chrysler has the back cover and Helena Rubenstein cosmetics has the flip side. Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Venezuela, and the ties that bind Venezuela to the United States. Illustrated with black and white photographs. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does show light foxing to outer edge of front cover and also at first two pages. Otherwise very nice. Slight tobacco scent.

2 A Happy New Year Bird Series Postcard Large Red Bird in Pine Boughs 1910
Unknown 1910 Very good 
The greeting, A Happy New Year, is hiding in the pine boughts in the lower left hand corner, so is easy to miss. But what a handsome card this is! It's gilded and embossed with a bold image superimposed over a small winter vignette. Lovely! This card was sent to a Mrs. C. Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The message reads, "Dear friend, Your card received. Thanks. It is a fine ? you have. Wish I could visit you sometime. Let us send cards once in a while. Best wishes for a Happy New Year. M.A." Card shows a little corner wear at the top, but is otherwise clean and nice.

All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
4 All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
Honolulu Hawaii Honolulu Star Bulletin 1950 Diamond Jubilee Edition soft cover 
This is a book, yes, but it's an ephemeral one because it's sort of like the phone book -- you can get a new one every year! This one's nice because it commemorates Hawaii's Diamond Jubilee and precedes its statehood. The front sections has a lot of Hawaiian history and there is much info later on the various island and the sugar and pineapple industries. There is also some tourist info and ads for hotels and restaurants, but this is really about what Hawaii was like at mid-century. Photo illustrated in black and white. the book measures 5"x7" and has 352 pages. The only fault is wear to the very bottom of the spine with a small loss of paper at both edges. Otherwise it's tightly bound and clean as whistle inside and out. 352 pages.

Choice Songs From Crowning Glory (Hymnal, 1893)
12 Choice Songs From Crowning Glory (Hymnal, 1893)
Chicago Billhorn Brothers 1893 Hard cover Good condition 
This is a slim hymnal of 104 songs. It was owned by Mrs. Ellen C. Hammett who declared it her book on front free endpaper with a simple penciled name and date of 1894. The book is lacking a few pieces of overlay paper primarily along outer edge of front cover. There are also a few toned areas on front endpaper. The pages are otherwise very clean and binding is tight. The ones I recognized are Bringing In the Sheaves, Rock of Ages, and Nearer My God to Thee. Book measures 5-1/2" x 8"

13 Clara Ford Nurses Home Detroit, Michigan (1926)
Unknown location C.T. American Art 1926 Very good 
Very bright clean postcard with just a tiny flat crease to upper left corner. Otherwise pristine. Card shows a white border, a divided back and a two cent stamp which matches the 1926 postmark because the postage rose from a penny to two cents from 1925 to 1928. The card was sent to Springfield, Ohio and the message reads thus, "Hope you and Marie had as good a time as Dot and I are having. Hazel." Card will arrive in new plastic sleeve.

Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
14 Collier's Magazine July 10, 1943 (General Jonathan Wainwright POW)
Springfield, Ohio Crowell-Collier Publishing Co. 1943 Volume 112, No. 2 soft cover Very Good 
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. Measures 10-1/2"x13". The issues from the WWII era are especially good -- many color ads with a military theme and a military cover. This cover features General Jonathan Wainwright, Commander of U.S. Forces on Bataan Peninsula March 18-May 6, 1942 when he was taken as a prisoner of war in Formosa. There's an article inside about it. Other interesting articles include Presidential predictions for 1944; the opium boats, sinister "pleasure ships" which sailed from Hong Kong before the Japanese were at war, but ultimately revealed Japan's silent weapon; and life behind barbed wire. There are also a number of short stories, including one from the very popular, Faith Baldwin,

Cuyahoga Falls Sesquicentennial Cloth Banner and Sesquicentennial Program (Ohio, 1962)
15 Cuyahoga Falls Sesquicentennial Cloth Banner and Sesquicentennial Program (Ohio, 1962)
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio City of Cuyahoga Falls soft cover Very good 
This is such a fun find. I've had the sesquicentennial book a couple times, but I've never seen the cloth banner. Yet here they are together from the same previous owner. The banner is quite large at 27"x36" and is printed on one side. There is a small section at the lower right corner where the thread seems a little dirty on the hem, but otherwise it's crisp and clean. The program shows a little wear, but not much, and has no names or writing. Inside there is a laid-in certificate with no name filled in for the Cuyahoga Falls Area Jubilee Belles. The program measures 8-1/2"x11" and is filled with historical photographs in black and white, plus historical info and info about the town's celebration. 90 pages. Sells as a set and ships for $2 in the U.S..

Echoes of a Lost Generation: Poetry and Essays of the Holocaust  (1978)
16 Echoes of a Lost Generation: Poetry and Essays of the Holocaust (1978)
Cleveland Heights, Ohio Cleveland Heights High School 1978 Second edition Card cover Good condition 
I bought this booklet years ago in Cleveland Heights, but was not sure where it came from originally ,so back into the closet it went several times. But this time my research answered the question of location. It's a student publication written and published at Cleveland Heights High School. There are stark black and white drawings and a few black and white photos. The students grasped both the history and the emotion of the horror. Many wrote with the voice of the children but others told the story of the adults who lost their lives too. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" with 46 pages and each poem or essay is signed by its author. Booklet shows only some light sunning around the edges of the front cover, but is otherwise nice.

Engineering News and American Contract Journal April, 1887
17 Engineering News and American Contract Journal April, 1887
New York Engineering News Publishing Company 1887 Vol. XVIII, No. 17 soft cover Very Good 
It's not common to find an example of this early technical magazine and especially not in such nice condition. There is a small bit of soiling to outer edge of front cover, but it is otherwise very handsome. Oversized at 11" across by 14" tall. Numerous ads at front and back with bold graphics showing various pumps, pipes, derricks, engineering and surveying equipment, fire hydrants, valves. etc.. Even submarine tunnels and early steam shovels. A sampling of articles include the following topics: a landslide on the New York, Central & Hudson Railroad, the foundation for the 1000-ft. Eiffel tower in Paris, and the proposed Long Island Bridge. Technical drawings throughout. Magazine begins pagination where the previous issue left off, but we counted 15 pages of dense text, plus 25 pages of ads.

French Hand-Tinted Photo Postcard Woman at Tea Table 1922
18 French Hand-Tinted Photo Postcard Woman at Tea Table 1922
France 1922 Very Good 
Pretty in peach is this lovely young woman seated at a tea table alone -- or is she? Her expression may say otherwise! The details and the hand tinted dress, tea things, lamp and flowers add so much charm. This card was sent in the mail from Vianen, but is still quite lovely with no real wear. The divided back has a lengthy message and was sent to someone in Europe.

Gail Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Two Trade Cards
19 Gail Borden Eagle Brand Condensed Milk Two Trade Cards
New York City New York Condensed Milk Company 1886 and 1887 Very good 
It's very interesting that the cutest babies are in the older card (1886) and the -- shall we say, odder ones? -- followed the next year. Both cards have the same copy on reverse side, which is devoted to the directions for use. Interesting, too, that this product remains on the grocery shelves today. the pastel card measures 3-1/2"x5" and the other 3-1/2"x5-1/2". Both are clean and nice, though I did re-enforce a corner crease at bottom left on the pastel card with invisible non-browning archival tape. The other card has toned a bit at back. Otherwise they're great.

20 Group For Creative Meditation Tenth annual Transpersonal Conference March 18, 19, 1978
Ojai, Califonria Group for Creative Meditation 1978 card cover Very Good Condition 
This is still a very relevant booklet as it provides not only the itinerary for the two day conference, but commentary from each speaker explaining the various topics which include: Holistic Meditation; Silence; and Synthesis of the Visible and Invisible. The text is dense, so there's a lot to read in this 36 page booklet. It measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and is very clean and tightly bound with no writing. The only fault is some toning around the edges of the cover. Otherwise crisp and nice.
