30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
1 30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
New Orlean, LA G.F. Castleden 1924-1929 Fine in Very Good Envelopes 
These are a lovely find if you are enchanted by the architecture of New Orleans. I've never seen this many in one place ever, but I got them from the estate of a Castleden collector. Castleden was a British artist who emigrated to New Orleans and continued his career as an artist there. The cards were aimed at the tourist trade -- ten scenes for a quarter. Three of the original envelopes will accompany them, but the cards weren't in them, so I am uncertain which belong where. The scenes are Old World beautiful and include, but are not confined to, these subjects: Pirate Alley, the monastery of the Capuchian monks, the staircase of the old St. Louis Hotel, the courtyard of the old Spanish Arsenal, oyster schooners, the Spanish Gate of Cabildo, the Courtyard of the Little Theatre, and the Little Green Shutter Tea Room. None have been used and all are in excellent condition. The envelopes are a little worn, but not bad. The photo shows an array of cards, but not all -- there really are thirty!

Alice (1992 Opera)
2 Alice (1992 Opera)
Hamburg, Germany Thalia Theatre 1992 soft cover Good-plus 
An uncommon item, published in tandem with the opening of the dark opera, Alice, which is based on Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The lyrics probe not the story as much as how it pertains to its author. Was not intended for children. Inside front cover (see photo two) is a small drawing signed by its artist. I can't decipher the first namel, but I do believe the last name is Zinn. I immediately thought of David Zinn who does have a history with the Thalia Theatre, but I can't say for sure that this is right. Research shows no account of him having anything to do with the set design for this show. Program is written in both German and English, primarily German, and is illustrated with both black and white photos and drawings plus color plates. Measures 8"x10-1/2" and has 64 pages plus a laid-in insert with info on the songs. Clean and tightly bound with no names or writing, but does show scratches to back cover and a small bit of edge wear, also at back.

New York Andy Warhol 1986 Vol. XVI, No. 7 soft cover Very Good condition 
Interview Magazine is a fun read. In addition to lots of close-up looks at famous people from all walks of life, it's also filled with gorgeous ads for high-end products.

Chautauqua Summer Center For Music and Drama Season Program 1942 (Plus Related Ephemera)
5 Chautauqua Summer Center For Music and Drama Season Program 1942 (Plus Related Ephemera)
Chautauqua, New York Chautauqua Institution June, 1942 Vol. 7 No. 117 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean program which shows the schedule for the entire summer of music and theatre at Chautauqua during the summer of 1942, as well as articles and photographs of the performers. Measures 8-1/2"x 11-1/4" and has 32 pages. There is a vertical crease down the center from having been folded, as so many programs were, but the crease is light. What's interesting about this particular one is the stuff I found inside. The previous owner was a young woman, Elizabeth Lorson, from Wooster, Ohio who was in New York City hoping to be taken on by a voice trainer of merit. Someone from back home wrote the following Western Union telegram (includes envelope) to her which was sent to the Parnassus Club in 1941. It reads, "Fear not about missing the boat. Most likely overcrowded. Anyway advise trying man Genevieve works with Sidney Dietch. His approach remotely like Griffith. Feel winter in New York with right teacher most valuable. You can always come home to me if conditions unhappy. Will write very soon. Lovingly, Eve." Dietch was one of the very finest in the city. Also, included is a postcard stating that the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra would be broadcasted on the radio August 10th, 1941. The message on the reverse is written by the young lady seeking a voice teacher. It reads "Just got mother's letter telling me May is probably coming. Will sure be glad to see who ever comes. Don't suppose you'd get this before Saturday. Will write soon. Love, Betty." She apparently was part of the music program at Chautauqua in 1941. The final item is a photo of an opera singer named Helen Jepson previously from Akron, Ohio, clipped from an unknown source. Wooster is close enough to Akron to have inspired Betty! (Elizbeth)

Chicago Chicago Stagebill 1943 soft cover Very good condition

Shubert. It debuted at the Erlanger Theatre, Chicago. Program measures 6-3/4" x 9" and has 12 clean, nice pages.

11 Earl Carroll Theatre New York Program 1928 (W.C. Fields)
New York City Earl Carroll Theatre 1928 soft cover Very good 
It's relatively easier to find Earl Carroll ephemera from his California night club days than it is from his earlier NYC theatre. But here we have a program from his seventh Follies, this time featuring the famous W.C. Fields. The program has very nice ads and lot of photos of the performers including a large picture of Fields. What's also fun is a close-up article about Carroll's eccentricities, of which there were many! The program measures 9"x12" and has 25 pristine pages.

Erte Exhibition 1987/88 (Price Sheet Laid-in)
13 Erte Exhibition 1987/88 (Price Sheet Laid-in)
London Sevenarts Ltd. (Grosvenor Gallery) 1987 
Beautiful, fanciful, charming -- the adjectives could be strung like pearls on a necklace to describe the works of the famous Russian artist, Erte, whose work graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar more than 200 times. Erte was a Russian artist whose early introduction to Persian art inspired him to pursue a career which included not only cover art, but costumes and stage designs of spectacular merit. This exhibit catalog is not seen often and is in clean, tightly bound condition. The art is all in color and celebrates the five year collaboration between Erte and Leon Leonidoff who from 1963-68 was director of Radio City Music Hall. The catalog marks the first time these works were ever viewed in exhibition. Included with the catalog is a price sheet still in its pocket at back. The catalog measures 8-3/4"x12" and has twenty pages.

New York RKO Palace Theatre 1956 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean program which is more leaflet than booklet, but not too often seen.

Alan King (comedian), and primarily -- JUDY GARLAND! There's info about each act, but Judy takes center stage. Measures 6"x9" and is clean with no tears and no names.

Me and My Girl Souvenir Theater Brochure
19 Me and My Girl Souvenir Theater Brochure
New York Raydell Publishing circa 1986-89 Card cover Very good condition 
Lots of color stills inside and a very attractive cover make this theater souvenir a nice addition to a collection, or the beginning of one. There is no date, but research shows that it opened originally in England during the 1930's and was revised in New York in the 80's. There is no theatre mentioned either, so it's likely that it accompanied a traveling show which including James Brennan and Sheri Cowart who played the leads on Broadway. The main booklet has a laid-in brochure which introduces the cast. The program measures 9" x 11-1/2" and is clean and tightly bound.

Menu Act I Restaurant New York
20 Menu Act I Restaurant New York
New York City Act I No date Card Fine condition 
Very attractive menu for a restaurant that was clearly located in the theater district. There is no date and no city, but there IS a very good clue. At the bottom of the central panel of the menu is this comment, "Act I has a "Hot Line" telephone to Golden Theatre Ticket Service -- we will make ticket reservations for you directly from the reservation desk on the 16th floor." I'm almost certain that Act I was a New York City restaurant because the Golden ticket service remains there. Here's an example of the prices -- prime rib $7.25; Cornish hen Kiev $5.75; and whole stuffed lobster $8.75. This colorful menu measures 8-1/2" x 15" and is clean and crisp
