Beverly Hills Cop Promotion Pack 1984 (Synopsis and 15 glossy stills)
1 Beverly Hills Cop Promotion Pack 1984 (Synopsis and 15 glossy stills)
Hollywood, CA Paramount Pictures 1984 soft cover Very good 
An Eddie Murphy classic in need of a collector! This is truly a fun find. Not only are there 15 glossy black and white stills from the 1984 film, some with two images per page, and all with explanatory notes bearing Paramount Pictures name and logo, but there's a also a great handbook which tells the story. It measures 8"x10" and has 36 pages of info, including cast of characters and actors, technical credits, background notes for the script and bios of the cast and those responsible for the finished product. All items clean and nice -- small corner creases and a few small spots of edge wear on blue card.

CVA Mountain Rifle & Kit Promotion Materials (1977)
2 CVA Mountain Rifle & Kit Promotion Materials (1977)
Haddam, Connecticut Connecticut Valley Arms Inc. 1977/78 Fine condition 
Wow! This is a really nice find. Inside this envelope are many pristine, unused advertising products. The envelope was never mailed which is likely why everything inside is so perfect. The contents include the following: a letter to the dealer; a 1978 catalog replete with price sheet; a huge wall or window banner measuring 12" x 52"; and a counter card (10-1/2" x 14") affixed with a pad of tear-off coupons. None were used AND we have a second unused pad as well.

SIGNED Letter by Alexander Woollcott Endorsing Seagram's Whiskey (circa 1936)
3 SIGNED Letter by Alexander Woollcott Endorsing Seagram's Whiskey (circa 1936)
New York City circa 1936 Very Good 
Alexander Woollcott was the self-appointed head of the famous Algonquin Round Table named for the group's famous lunch and watering hole, The Algonquin Hotel. Also a big presence at these convivial lunches was Dorothy Parker. This letter is typed by Woolcott and signed on his personal stationery when he lived at 10 Gracie Square. My first clue in dating the letter was the fact that 10 Gracie opened in 1930. But the body of the letter comes with a humorous endorsement for Seagram's whiskey which struck me that there might be other letters with this message. Sure enough, I found one on ebay which wasn't dated either, but was signed. So then .... I did a little more sleuthing and -- voila! Woollcott published it as an open letter in the December 19,1936 issue of the New Yorker (he worked for the New Yorker). The letter is written on stationery with a grid pattern and has not been folded. There is some browning to edges and a tiny chip on left side edge. Otherwise it's a very nice literary collectible. Woolcott leant himself to Seagram's for a holiday promotion which is how the signed letters came to be. The one printed in The New Yorker was answered by Eustace Tilly, who was actually E.B. White, also from The New Yorker.

Flats of Cleveland 1987 Calendar (unused), Rutmoin, Ben (artist)
6 Rutmoin, Ben (artist) Flats of Cleveland 1987 Calendar (unused)
Cleveland, Ohio Flats Oxbow Association ans Flats Entertainment Association 1987 soft cover Very Good condition 
I tried to get some info about this item, but hit a brick wall almost right away. This was printed in an era when The Flats were the new Big Thing in Cleveland night life. I'm not surprised that there aren't any calendars online, but I thought there would be some info about the artist and the promotion that prompted it, but no luck. The calendar shows all 12 drawings and was printed with all possible holidays, but has no writing by previous owner. Closed it measures 10" x 13" and of course is twice as long when opened. The binding is spiral and is completely intact. Only fault is very light toning to spots of front cover which show more in the picture than they do in person. Some of the sites included are Heritage Park, the Old Power House, the Flat Iron Cafe, a river view from Moses Cleveland Landing and the Cleveland Crate and Trucking Co. Restaurant.
