Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
1 Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
St. Paul, Minnesota B&B 1917 Near fine condition 
The colorful scene of a sportsman in a boat in what looks like a marshy area made me think this blotter might be newer than it is. I got out my magnifying glass and there it was though -- a 1917 date. The Willard Battery Storage company was founded in Cleveland in 1896 by Theodore Willard. It stayed the course al the way through WWII, but finally changed hands in 1952. As you can see, there's another comapany name on the blotter, the St. Thomas Storage Battery Company, but here's why. Under the phone number of St, Thomas it reads, "All Makes of Batteries Repaired. Authorized Willard Service Station for Elgin County.

Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
2 Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
Chicago Rand McNally 1937 Second Edition soft cover Good-plus condition 
Very handsome booklet with many large photographs throughout. It came from a travel service affiliated with the Higbee department store in Cleveland, Ohio as per stamp on the back cover. This is a second version of the original which was a brochure and published in 1922. This one measures 8" x 9" and has 38 pages. The photographs are beautiful in black and white with a wash of pink to many. The text invites the visitor to see the Grand Canyon from various spots. Especially nice was the comment from Theodore Roosevelt on page one, "The Grand Canyon of Arizona fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison -- beyond description -- absolutely unparalleled throughout the wide world. Let this wonder of nature remain as is now is .... " Booklet is clean with a just three very small tears to cover edges which I repaired on reverse side with small pieces of archival tape.

Countryside Around Geneva 1963, Goodacre, Edward B. (Cheneviere, Jacques)
6 Goodacre, Edward B. (Cheneviere, Jacques) Countryside Around Geneva 1963
Neuchatel, Switzerland Editions Du Griffon 1963 soft cover Near fine Strawinsky, Theodore 
This is an absolutely pristine travel guide marred only by scant evidence that some sort of protective cover had been taped to it at one time. This shows very minorly (see photo two) at small spots front and back. Otherwise it looks like new. The guide came out in a French edition and the author of that one was Jacques Cheneviere whose name is at the top, but if you look inside it states that this ENGLISH edition was written by Edward B. Goodacre. The guide measures 7-1/2"x10" and has numerous beautiful black and white photographs plus text. Only the text is paginated, so there are 28 pages of that plus 48 pages of photos, which I counted, for a total of 76 pages.

Theodore Seuss Geisel  Reminiscences and Tributes (Dr. Seuss, 1996), Latham, Edward Connery (editor)
10 Latham, Edward Connery (editor) Theodore Seuss Geisel Reminiscences and Tributes (Dr. Seuss, 1996)
Hanover, New Hampshire Dartmouth College 1996 Limited edition soft cover Fine condition Fine 
It's hard to believe that Dr. Seuss has been gone for fourteen years. This little booklet is a tribute to him and to his amazing body of work. Almost everyone can quote him. For some unknown reason the one I always think of first is, "This is not good, this is not right, My feet hang out of bed at night." The picture at frontis of him sitting at his desk is wonderful, as are the stories of him related by seven friends. There's also an into by his wife, Audrey Geisel. The booklet measures 5" x 6-1/2" and is beautifully made with its own dust jacket and very nice heavy paper. 49 pages. Only 2000 copies printed.

12 Roosevelt, Theodore; West, Rebecca; St.John, Adela Rogers; Maugham, Somerset; Norris, Kathleen (Hearst's International Combined with Cosmopolitan Magazine November, 1925) Hearst's International Combined With Cosmopolitan Magazine (November, 1925)
New York International Magazine Company 1925 Vol. LXXIX, No. 5 soft cover Very good Condition 
It must have been a happy day when this issue turned up in the mail. It's like having a book and a magazine all in one. Rex Beach, a popular writer of the day, has a complete novel here titled "Padlock: A Novel About Today's Morals." But what's really good is the list of well-known authors. Theodore Roosevelt tells the story of the journey he and his family took to "unknown Asia." Rebecca West had a provocative title for her submission -- "I, Rebecca West, Regard Marriage With Fear and Horror!" The others include Somerset Maugham's, "The Great Man"; Kathleen Norris's No. VIII in her serial novel The Heart of Juanita. And, lastly, there's a memoir about Wild Bill Hickock and Buffalo Cody, among other childhood heroes. The magazine measures 8-1/2" x 11-3/4" with a whopping 230 pages!The spine strip is still intact and the pages are tightly bound. There is creasing to lower front corner, but I re-enforced it with non-browning on the reverse side archival tape on the reverse side to keep it from snapping off.

Collier's Magazine Inauguration Number, March 6, 1909 -- Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft
13 William Taft Collier's Magazine Inauguration Number, March 6, 1909 -- Taft and Theodore Roosevelt
New York P.F. Collier and Sons 1909 Vol. XLII No. 24; News Stands Edition Soft cover Good condition 
I've had this for a long time and never knew it. I sold a Collier's yesterday so I looked for another. There are lots of good ones, but this one is -- WOW! There's an article by President Taft talking about the personality and career of Teddy Roosevelt and Taft's 19 years of friendship. There's also many photographs throughout plus Taft the Statesman from the bench to the presidency; the new president, Bill Taft at Yale; changes at the White House,the animals of Africa, and more. The magazine is not perfect, but I did repair it. The cover had pulled away from the staples and had a couple splits which I used archival tape to keep it together. I also added some new staples, so it's mch improved. The only other problem is some toning to the font. the magazine measures 10-1/4" x 15" and has 51 pages.
