Choice Songs From Crowning Glory (Hymnal, 1893)
1 Choice Songs From Crowning Glory (Hymnal, 1893)
Chicago Billhorn Brothers 1893 Hard cover Good condition 
This is a slim hymnal of 104 songs. It was owned by Mrs. Ellen C. Hammett who declared it her book on front free endpaper with a simple penciled name and date of 1894. The book is lacking a few pieces of overlay paper primarily along outer edge of front cover. There are also a few toned areas on front endpaper. The pages are otherwise very clean and binding is tight. The ones I recognized are Bringing In the Sheaves, Rock of Ages, and Nearer My God to Thee. Book measures 5-1/2" x 8" 
Price: 16.00 USD

Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
2 Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
Germany International Art Publishing Co. Unknown 
What a cutie for the Fourth of July, or even Memorial Day. It looks like the work of Ellen Clapsaddle and there are attribtions of this is in the marketplace, but I have gone over it thoroughly with a magnifying glass and cannot find a signature to confirm it. Nonethleess it's a sweet image with the banner reading the first few lines of "My Country 'Tis of Thee." Love the way the little patriot is standing on a pile of stars! Great graphic. The card has a divided back and was never maile. Penciled message reads "Bertha From Madeleine." Tiny bit of corner wear, but otherwise crisp.

Woman's Day Magazine June, 1945(C.C. Beall poster bound-in), Souvaine, Mabel Hill (editor)
6 Souvaine, Mabel Hill (editor) Woman's Day Magazine June, 1945(C.C. Beall poster bound-in)
New York Stores Publishing Company 1945 soft cover Very good 
The striking cover of this June, 1945 womens' magazine is an eye-catcher, but there's something special awaiting inside too. Open the front cover and there it is --an 8"x10" poster still bound-in and with no tears or creases. The outer section reads "We Thank Thee" A Commemorative Painting by C.C. Beall. In his day this watercolorist was a fairly big deal -- covers for Collier's, advertising campaigns for Maxwell House Coffee and government posters supporting WWII. His sun has faded these days, but the art is really lovely. The magazine's cover was also painted by him and is signed as such. At this point in the war Osaka, Japan was heavily bombed. The painting shows people reading letters signed by several people, one of whom was Dwight D. Eisenhower. The letters are hard to read, but the gist is a need for a united country supporting the war effort. The rest of the magazine consists of recipes, fiction and homemaking articles except for one -- Return to Cologne by Vincent Sheean. The author asks if the fallen city has learned its lesson. Magazine measures 8-3/4"x11" and has 88 pages.
