2 A Cruise Round South America 1930 (S.S. Samaria)
Boston, New York etc. Raymond & Whitcomb Company 1930 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a rather scarce travel guide from the Golden Age of Travel. It's very clean and tightly bound with a small bit of isolated edge wear and a small crease at lower spine. Measurements are 6"x9-1/4" with 48 pages. Many wonderful black and white photographs of sites to see, but also a picture of the ship, the S.S. Samaria. The itinerary shows that the cruise began from New York on Feb. 1, 1930 and ended up at New York on April 4th. In between passengers visited Cuba, Panama, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, the Argentine Republic, Brazil, Barbados, Martinique, and the Virgin Islands. Only 280 passengers would be accommodated on the ultra lavish ship. No price for the cruise -- you had to contact an agent!

Arthur's Illustrated  Home Magazine (May, 1875)
3 Arthur's Illustrated Home Magazine (May, 1875)
Philadelphia Timothy Shay Arthur 1875 No. 5 Volume XLIII soft cover Very Good 
Though not as well known as Godey's, Arthur's magazine was a hit in its day.This issue is from May,1875 and is clean and tightly bound. There is a small loss of paper at the bottom of the spine and a light stain from moisture to the bottom front corner and a light one also to bottom corner at a few pages in the back. Several pages of fashions are found at the front of the magazine, but Arthur's seemed to feel its readership was worthy of more intellectual material as well -- the first article is about South Wales. There's also articles about books and libraries, the island of Philae, burrowing bees, gardening, and the the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania. Also includes stories and poems. Ads are confined to the back, but one full page one shows an ad for an early book club offered by the magazine's publisher. The magazine was launched in 1852 by Timothy Shay Arthur of Philadelphia who remained its editor and publisher until his death in 1885. After that it stayed around a few years before slipping away into the annals of time.

5 Christie's South Kensington Leica Cameras, Cameras and Optical Toys 1996
London Christie's South Kensington 1996 Nov. 21, 1996 Card cover Near fine condition

Civil War Envelope The Rebel States South Carolina (1861)
6 Civil War Envelope The Rebel States South Carolina (1861)
New York Reigles & Co. 1861 Very Good condition 
Here's an ephemera item which deserve its title -- the odds of an empty envelope hanging around for over 150 years is amazing. I have never seen one before in person, but I have seen pictures. These were printed for multiple states, but this one happens to be from South Carolina. The devil carrying the flag, the bold letters spelling The Rebel States, and the pastel color were used for all. What differentiates them is the state's particular seal in front of the devil. The envelope is closed, but there is nothing in it. It measures 3" tall by 5-1/2" wide. It will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Fortune Magazine, November, 1938 (Saks Fifth Avenue)
7 Fortune Magazine, November, 1938 (Saks Fifth Avenue)
New York city Time Inc. 1938 Volume XVIII, No. 5 soft cover Very good condition 
There's lots to read about in this over-sized magazine, but I think the most provactive is the story about Saks Fifth Avenue, which to this day keeps the population fashionable. Other topics of interest are: The Industrial South; Nunn-Bush and labor; the adventures of Del Monte; energy sources, including solar; and a look at the American Medical Association. Magazine is big at 11-1/2" x 14" with 174 pages. It's clean inside and out with just minor spots of edge wear to cover, but overall is really very nice. We have others listed online here, but also have a stack that are not on yet. So if you're looking for a specific example please let me know and I'll see what I have.

8 Gilcrease: The Journal of Gilcrease Museum Vol. XIII, No. 1 (Spring/Summer 2005)
Tulsa, Oklahoma Thomas Gilcrease Museum Association 2005 Vol. XIII, No. 1 (Spring/Summer 2005) Card cover Very good 
Very attractive magazine. The focus on this issue is Peru and ancient cultures of South America. The articles are all illustrated with color photographs, many of which depict the art of the various civilizations. Content includes these topics: Hiram Bingham and Machu Picchu; Dego de Trujillo's account of the conquest of the Inca by the Spanish in 1532; the ancient cultures of South America; and emperors of the Inca. The magazine measures 8-1/2" x 10-3/4" and has 64 pages. It's crisp and clean with no names or writing. The only fault is a light crease to lower corner of the first half of the text. I was able to flatten them and it's quite nice.

Ken Magazine July, 28, 1938   (Ernest Hemingway Boxing,   Germans in South Tyrol, FDR as Counter-Revolutionary)
10 Ken Magazine July, 28, 1938 (Ernest Hemingway Boxing, Germans in South Tyrol, FDR as Counter-Revolutionary)
1938 Vol. 2. No. 2 soft cover Very good condition 
Ken magazine launched on April 7, 1938 via the founders of Esquire, but it lasted just a scant two years with two issues a month. It was political and controversial, so much so that Ernest Hemingway stopped writing for it after 14 issues. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 13-1/2" with 86 pages. This issue has a boxing article by Hemingway titled My Pal The Gorilla Gargantua. The cover story is Austrians In All But Name, a criticsm of the Reich for failing Germans of the South Tyrol. Other stories include Roosevelt as counter-revolutionary; water pollution in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and St. Louis; and how a white man almost hung for killing a Black man. There's also many wonderful full page photographs and many features. I have many of these magazines, so if you don't see the one you want inquire and I'll see if I have it. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but please contact us with destination for an exact shipping quote.

11 National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association South Eastern Rendezvous 1982 (with Medallion)
Friendship, Indiana N.M.L.R.A. 1982 Soft cover Good condition 
Crisp and clean as new with the keepsake medallion in it's original bag stapled to front corner. NMLRA is still conducting target shooting competitions using single bullet muzzleloaders. The competition is about sport of course, but it's also an endeavor for competitors to arrive in historical garb. The program measures 5-1/2" x 8-3/4"and has 16 pages. The only defect is the fate of many programs of all kinds -- a vertical fold right now the center. It's unusual to find the token.

Southern architecture is beautiful, whether it's public buildings or neighborhood homes.

What's wonderful are the details such as garden gates and doorways. The booklet is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. The only faults is some loss of the top layer of paper next to the spine, but it's hardly noticeable.

18 Real Photo Postcard Baseball Diamond. McElroy Park Jmestown, Norh Dakota. 1951
Jamstown, North Dakota No publisher stated 1951 Very good condition 3-1/4 No photographer stated 
Big crowds made McElroy Park on a good day with nice covered bleachers, plus the outside seats. As for the card, there's a bright postal stamping on the back showing that Jack Joyce, of Canton, Ohio sent it. The sender posted the card at Mound City, South Dakota, also in 1951. The writer was clearly a baseball fan, so I'll let the buyer read the rest. The card will arive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Samoan Bark Cloth (TAPA) and Letter from Hawaii
19 Samoan Bark Cloth (TAPA) and Letter from Hawaii
Honolulu. Hawaii R.J. Baker Unnown, No Zip code. TAPA clothand letter Fine condition Designed and painted in Samoa 
I know this is a bit out of the box, but how many times does an ephemera dealer run into a Samoan bark cloth? It's quite large, is hand painted, and folds easily from 28" x 40" to 8-1/2" x 12". Along with this unusual textile there's a letter written by R.J. Baker Photogrpaher ansd Publisher of Fine Books, located in Honolulu and sent to Frances Tripi of South Euclid, Ohio. The letter reads, "The Samoan bark cloth, known as TAPA, is made from the inner bark of the paper mulberry (Broussonetia papyrifera) which in Hawaii is a small tree or shrub. The process of preparing the TAPA is a complicated one, involving soaking, scraping, beating and sometimes oiling and dying. In primitive Hawaii the TAPA served as bed covers, capes, loin clothes and sandals." The rest of the letter awaits you!

Shoes They Are Wearing In Russia To-Day; Corona Kid Company, Boston (circa 1920's)
20 Shoes They Are Wearing In Russia To-Day; Corona Kid Company, Boston (circa 1920's)
Boston, Massachusets Corona Kid Company circa 1920's Soft cover Very Good 
Very quirky advertising brochure for the Corona Kid Company of Boston, strangely not dated. The oldest reference of the company I found was the July 3, 1901 issue of Book & Shoe Recorder which lists them as an advertiser for leather. The next reference was 1903 when Shoe Worker's Journal mentioned that the company baseball team was the best in the area. Then in 1914 there was a notice that they had moved up South Street. The last notice was in 1921 which indicated that the company was big in patent leather -- which brings us to this advertising piece. Its big sell was that Corona Colt leather required no polishing -- just washing. It's in full color and has 12 pages.
