1 "Seated at the organ I was weary and ill at ease" The Lost Chord Vintage Postcard
New York The Knapp Company Unknown Near fine 
This is the prettiest card I've seen using a line from F. Earl Christy's poem "The Lost Chord." Most of them are in black and white with a rather disheveled background, though more of the verse. This shows only the first line -- clearly it's part of a series -- which reads "Seated one day at the organ I was weary and ill at ease ..." The small center graphic is lovely and makes for an understated, elegant card. It has not been postally used and there is no writing. It's numberd 381.

1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
5 1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
New York Empire State Railway Museum Inc. 1971 Sixth annual soft cover All items very good 
This is an interesting combination of items, all in one from a previous collector. The 6th Annual Steam Passenger Service Directory of 1971 was stuffed with numerous newspaper stories about trains, primarily from the Toledo, Ohio area during the 70's. These did cause some toning to the reverse side of cover, both front and back, but I have sequestered them now in a plastic bag in which they will arrive. Also accompanying the directory are a brochure, a business card and an unused ticket, all from the Toledo Lake Erie and Western Railway, Inc. The directory measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 128 page , all of which contain a black and white photograph, plus info on each train.

1972 Cadillac Owner's Manual in Original Plastic Case (With Emissions Booklet)
6 1972 Cadillac Owner's Manual in Original Plastic Case (With Emissions Booklet)
Detroit. Michigan Cadillac Motors 1972 soft cover Good 1 
If you're restoring an old car there's nothing like the original manual to tuck into the glove compartment. Here we have not only the manual, but also the accompanying booklet about the car's emission control systems and their required maintenance and warranty information. Both measure 5" tall by 8" long and fit into their original blue plastic holder. The owner's manual shows some rubbing to blue cover and a small stain to side of text block which can be seen on the very edge of some pages inside. The emissions book is quite good with a light ring stain from a glass at back. Overall, both are still quite respectable. Manual has 84 pages and is illustrated with black and white photos, charts, and drawings. The emissions booklet has 15 pages and is illustrated with drawings.

25 Asian Prints in Folder 1978 (All Portraits, Nine in Color)
7 25 Asian Prints in Folder 1978 (All Portraits, Nine in Color)
Asia Unknown 1978 Card folder Very Good 
I have had these prints for years, but never listed them because the title is in Asian characters. I can't recall where I even got them, but they are quite handsome. There are supposed to be 16 black and white numbered prints, all portraits drawn with pencil, inside the folder and all are present. But here's the nice surprise -- nine other numbered prints in full color appear to have hitchhiked along. These apparently were at least a set of 10, but one is missing. Nine nice freebies aren't bad though! :-) The folder measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2" and is very clean, though toned. A previous owner also taped a short tear at top of spine. The prints are very white -- no foxing or toning. Paper is lightweight and one print shows a small rough area to top edge, but could still be framed with no problem. Overall an interesting set.

25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
8 25th Independence Day Dance North American Association of Venezuela 1966 (program)
The North American Association of Venezuela 1966 soft cover Good 
Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela. Clearly, this was a big event, as the ads in the program are largely national -- Chrysler has the back cover and Helena Rubenstein cosmetics has the flip side. Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Venezuela, and the ties that bind Venezuela to the United States. Illustrated with black and white photographs. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does show light foxing to outer edge of front cover and also at first two pages. Otherwise very nice. Slight tobacco scent.

11 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.

In between passengers visited Cuba, Panama, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, the Argentine Republic, Brazil, Barbados, Martinique, and the Virgin Islands.

A Plan For Historic Preservation Charlestown, Massachusetts 1968
12 A Plan For Historic Preservation Charlestown, Massachusetts 1968
Charlestown, Massachusetts Charlestown Preservation Society Inc. 1968 Very Good Soft Cover Good-plus 
I very much like old urban planning/historical preservation items, so of course had to have this one. It was likely printed for the exclusive use of the Charlestown Preservation Society, so there aren't too many kicking around. The booklet is clean and oversized at 9"x11" and spiral bound to lie flat. The plastic comb is completely intact. It's illustrated throughout with maps and black and white photographs. A very interesting retrospective of the town.

Alice (1992 Opera)
20 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.
