Allis-Chalmers Annual Review 1944
1 Allis-Chalmers Annual Review 1944
Milawukee, Wisconsin Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company 1944 Annual, 1944 Card cover Very Good condition 
This is a wonderful wartime report from Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing covering all aspects of the business including power generation; power distribution; processing items such as metals, coal, rock products, cement, forest products, petroleum, rubber, chemicals, food, and solvent oil; industrial; construction and agriculture; and transportation. The book is over-sized at 8-1/2"x 11" and has 80 pages. Minor small horizontal creases to spine, likely endemic to the publishing process, but otherwise clean and tightly bound. There is also a letter laid-in to accompany it. The book does have text, but it's the photographs and technical drawings that command your attention. VERY nice and not commonly found.

Chevrolet For 1942
2 Chevrolet For 1942
Detroit, Michigan Chevrolet Division of General Motors 1942 soft cover Good condition 
Wow! What a great cover. But pretty though it is the date tells the story. WWII began in 1939 and would not end until 1945. Given such hard times -- food was rationed, as was gasoline, the country needed metal, gold, rubber and also other commodities for the war effort. America asked its citizens to help with money by buying Victory bonds. The catalog is really cool though -- it measures 5-1.2" tall and 12-1.4" across. Be sure to see the last photo which shows the engine. Catalog is clean and bright with no the features offered in the chassis. There's a tiny bit of edge wear at random spots to front cover and a crease to front cover which I have flattened with an iron.

Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
5 Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
New York Time-Life 1934 Volume IX, No. 2 soft cover Very good 
Yesterday I got thirty Fortune magazines from the 30's, so if you don't see what you want let me know and I'll see if I have it. Fortune was one of the most beautiful magazines of the Depression era and still retains interest in its articles as well as its design. This time two topics caught my attention -- the ever controversial Father Coughlin and wine production in the United States. There's also stories about radium, industrial designers, U.S. Rubber and more. The magazine is very large at 11-1/2"x14" and has 142 pages. Only faults are a small chip to top front edge and minor wear to very bottom edge of spine which does not impinge on the binding. Very handsome and no label. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but extra shipping is required due to weight and size. Same for U.S. priority. U.S. media mail is just $2.00 as stated.

The Chemical Rubber Company Brochure Cleveland, Ohio (1934)
8 The Chemical Rubber Company Brochure Cleveland, Ohio (1934)
Cleveland, Ohio The Chemical Rubber Company circa 1934 soft cover Fine 1 
Really nice advertising brochure with no date, so it required some sleuthing. What did the trick was the ad for a book, Adventures with A Microscope by Julian D. Corington. The book was published in 1934, so the brochure was likely issued in '34 or thereabouts. There is no mailing label on it and no fault of note. Closed it measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2", but folds out to a whopping 28" with scientific products pictured on both sides.

The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
9 The Houghton Line: Not A Yes-Magazine (13 issues 1964-1972)
Philadelphia E. F. Houghton & Company 1964-1972 soft cover Very good condition 
I haven't seen these quirky little magazines since I first started in business 19 years ago. So I'm pretty tickled to find them again. Houghton just celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. To celebrate they printed a special issue of the popular magazine which was closed down in 2008. These 13 I have now are nice and clean, all identical in format and design -- just different accent colors. They're small in size measuring just 4"x7" and are billed as a publication "for people who like to do their own thinking." Topics range from products made by the company and other interesting things that have nothing to do with it. Let's start with the industrial articles which include these products: Cindol lubricants high-temp lubes, Houghto-Safe 1120, Houghton custom molded rubber parts and I-rings and more. The rest of the articles cover these topics and more: Football as big business, metal-working in a blind school, the big boom for small boats, Houghton in Sweden, Soccer Discovers America, the progress and problems of trucking, tuna fishing off Rhode Island, our farm paradox, in defense of industry, living costs around the world, and sports highest paid lightweights. The magazines measure 4" x7" and have 46 pages each. Issues include these: April 1964, Dec. 1964, Feb. 1967, June 1967, Dec., 1967, April 1968, June 1968, Sept. 1968, April 1969, Sept 1969, Dec. 1969, June 1971. Fall 1972.

10 Thomas Edison, John Burroughs, Harvey Firestone Vacation (The Firestone December, 1916)
Akron,Ohio Firestone Rubber Company 1916 December, 1916 soft cover Fine condition 
This is NOT the entire issue of the magazine, but it's pretty spectacular if you're interested in Thomas Edison, the author, James Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone, president of Firestone Rubber Company. The three men took a two week camping vacation through New Jersey, New York and Vermont. They met up at Edison Laboratories in Orange, New Jersey in late August where they climbed into Edison's "motor truck" which carried all three passengers, plus camping gear. The story of the trip is told in captioned pictures over two oversized pages which measure 11" x 15". The previous owner collected all things connected with the Akron, Ohio rubber companies.

Easton, Pennsylvania Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society 1931 volume IV, Number 2 soft cover Good condition 
I grew up in Akron, the Rubber Capital of the World, so these journals, though hard to find, are like old friends to me. Today I bought maybe ten, so if you would like me to look and see what I have I would be happy to do it. This issue contains many articles, but here's a few examples: Tensile Tests of Vulcanized Rubber at High Speed; The Influence of Rubber "Resins" in Zinc Oxide-Accelerator Mixings; The Kinetics of Vulcanized Rubber; Isoprene and Rubber; The Constitution of Rubber; The Fusion Curve of Natural Rubber and Determination of Alkalinity of Reclaimed Rubber. The journal measures 6"x9 and is tightly bound with no names or writing. Faults are confined to a small loss of outer layer of paper to front cover at lower corner next to spine and a crease to lower back corner which I have strengthened with a slim piece of archival tape to both sides.
