Collier's Magazine: The    Nation's Weekly August 19, 1933 (George Creel, Railroad Troubles, Kathleen Norris, Babe Herman)
1 Collier's Magazine: The Nation's Weekly August 19, 1933 (George Creel, Railroad Troubles, Kathleen Norris, Babe Herman)
New York P.F. Collier & Son 1933 soft cover Robert O. Reid 
Striking cover art by Robert O. Reid sets the scene for August, 1933. Reid's work was frequently on the cover -- and it's no wonder why. This magazine is handsomely illustrated throughout with a nice mix of articles and fiction. The fiction writers include George Agnew Chamberlain, Stephen Morehouse Avery, Ruth Chandler Moore, Roark Bradford, and Kathleen Norris. Two articles that stoood out was one by George Creel, who was an investigative journalist and politiican who served on the U.S. Committee of Public Information, which was actually a propaganda organization started by Woodrow Wilson. In his article he addresses the problems of the railroad industry in the 30's. The other article focuses on Babe Herman, the eccentric Chicago Cubs player. Magazine is oversized at 10-1/2"x13-1/3" and is quite nice with just a few tiny edge tears. Original mailing label at bottom front cover. The recipient was from Barberton, Ohio.

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)

5 Dancyger, Ruth Kubinyi and Hall: Cleveland's Partners In Art (1988)
Cleveland, Ohio John Carroll University 1988 Hard cover Very Good No DJ as per design Ex-library 
This book is rather hard to find. Though it's an ex-library, which is something I rarely buy, I couldn't pass it up. Kalman Kubinyi and Doris Hall carved a place for themselves in the annals of the Cleveland art scene. The book's text is simply typed, but there are photographs of both artists, plus full page black and white art works. The book is bound in black buckram with a nice paper front cover. There's a bit of light soil and a white sticker next to the spine at lower front corner and a stamp on the title page from the library which held it. There's also a stamp to top exterior edge and a pocket at back, but is clean and tightly bound. Book measures 7-1/4" x 9" and has 102 pages of text and 32 plates.

13 Simon, Ruth I. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity, Akron, Ohio (1960's)
Akron, Ohio The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity 1960's Soft Cover Fine condition 
Church histories are excellent when seeking genealogical information to augment a family tree. This one is especially good for that as it offers some history, but primarily focuses on the congregation. Photographs of members are displayed as in a school yearbook and there is also an extensive list of members. The church was well known then for its music, and remains so today, especially for its organ. Booklet is cleana nd nice with no defect of note. Measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has

The Mansfield Old Building Handbook: A Guide to Architectural Styles and Rehabilitation Techniques, Williams,Judith B.
14 Williams,Judith B. The Mansfield Old Building Handbook: A Guide to Architectural Styles and Rehabilitation Techniques
Mansfield, Ohio City of Mansfield 1988 Historic Preservation Commission of Mansfield Card cover, spiral binding Fine condition David Butler; Ruth Leonard Design, Columbus, Ohio 
This is an outstanding booklet. I've never seen it before, but I got it last week thinking it was new, which it is not. It was published in 1988. Much time, effort, and creativity ended in a guide which explains architectural types of homes and buildings in Mansfield and Richland County and has photos for each. There's also information on repairs of roofs, foundations, gutters, siding and more, all of which offer either photos or drawings. What I like best about this booklet though is the art -- it's gorgeous and there are several examples including a fold-out at the back of book.The guide measures 7-1/4" x 10"and has 44 pages plus fold-out.

Harmony In Marriage (Book In A Box, 1948), Wood, Leland Foster Ph.D.; Dickinson, Robert Latou M.D.
15 Wood, Leland Foster Ph.D.; Dickinson, Robert Latou M.D. Harmony In Marriage (Book In A Box, 1948)
New York City Round Table Press 1948 Later printing Card cover Fine condition 
I love books in boxes and this one is so pristine it's amazing. The booklet itself appears to have never been read. It was given as a gift to Ruth and Carl from Harlan with Best Wishes. I like inscriptions because they're part of the book's history. I bought a book in a box at Christmas for a friend and wrote my inscription under the original one -- 100 years later. But getting back to this booklet, the box is sturdy with just a small loss of the outer paper -- about the size of a Tic-Tac. Unlike many marriage books, this one is secular rather than religious, though it does cover in oen chapter religious issues. It also covers in-laws, having fun together, courtesy in the home, money, sex, disagreements, parenthood, and more. Measures 4-3/4" x 7-1/4" with 122 pages.
