Bicycle Certificate and Warranty Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895
1 Bicycle Certificate and Warranty Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895
Chicago Oxford Manufacturing Company 1895 Good-plus 
At the time this manufacturer's certificate and warranty was extended in 1895 bicycles were all the rage. The warranty was good for a year from the date stated, October 14, 1895. Here's what is promises: " This is to certify that the Oxford Bicycle No. 1113 is warranted to be free from defective materials or workmanship, and we will make good any defects found, free of charge, when such part or parts are returned to us (all charges prepaid) for examination. The guarantee does not apply to damage resulting from accident, rough usage, or neglect." It also mentions that the Morgan and Wright's Pneumatic Tires which were used on the bikes were guaranteed by Morgan and Wright. The certificate/warranty measures 7-3/4" x 9" and is very readable with no tears. There are a few spots of foxing, but very minor. It had also been folded, but I ironed it and flattened it in the book press.

E.H. Wright Advertising For Boys and Girls Down on the Farm
2 E.H. Wright Advertising For Boys and Girls Down on the Farm
Kansas City, Missouri E. H. Wright Company Unknown Early 20th Century (No date) soft cover 
This is a cute little booklet designed to attract children, but also contains info for grown-ups to buy Wright's Condensed Smoke and Wright's Ham Pickle. The latter was huge -- 27 lbs of pickling salt which would cure as much as 280 pounds of meat! The booklet derived from the home office and was sent to smaller companies to send to their customers. In this instance it was stamped on the back F.H. Nickerson, Druggist, Greenwich, Ohio. The booklet is clean and nice with two tiny staple holes from mailing. Booklet measures 4-1/4"x7" and has 14 counted pages, each with color illustrations for the kids.

Frank Lloyd Wright A Modern Aesthetic June 6 to July 15, 1986 (The Darwin D. Martin House)
3 Frank Lloyd Wright A Modern Aesthetic June 6 to July 15, 1986 (The Darwin D. Martin House)
Chicago, Illinois Struve Gallery 1986 card cover Very Good Condition 
This is a beautiful catalog in very good condition. It should, however, have a white paper dustwrapper printed with the exact design on the cover of the booklet itself. It's still very attractive with no defect of note. The Darwin D. Marvin house was built in Buffalo, New York in 1903-1904 and was considered the house that truly showed Wright's genius. Wright was friends with the owners until the death of Darwin Martin in 1935. Until then he designed furniture, lighting fixtures and even dresses for Mrs. Martin. He also consulted on the couple's collection of Japanese prints and ceramics. This booklet measures 8" x 11" and is illustrated handsomely with photos of the stained glass windows and the furniture.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Child of the Sun: A Walking Tour of Florida Southern College (circa 1998)
4 Frank Lloyd Wright's Child of the Sun: A Walking Tour of Florida Southern College (circa 1998)
Lakeland, Florida Florida Southern College circa 1998 Soft cover brochures Very good condition 
Here we have three clean brochures which arrived together in the same cello bag. The two most important are'lt dated, but I did find a very small date on the campus map -- 1998.The major brochure with the photo of FLW opens to reveal four panels with information about local buildings illustrated with eight sepia pictures. Turn it over and you have more info and three more photos. The second brochure tells the story of Wright's relationship with the college. Thirdly, we have a campus map. The only fault to these may not be a fault at all because it provides additional information. On the back of the brochure about Wright's relationship to the college the previous owner penned names of what I surmise are donors to the FLW buildings on campus. Nice set.

Harper's Magazine, May, 1958 (Frank Lloyd Wright)
5 Harper's Magazine, May, 1958 (Frank Lloyd Wright)
New York Harper & Bros. 1958 Vol. 216, No. 1296 soft cover Very good 
Very clean, nicely kept magazine marred only by a small abrasion to outer front edge, a small chip to side of one page (not affecting text) and creasing to the same page which has been pressed flat in the book press by me. As you can see, the cover caricature is Frank Lloyd Wright, the star of this issue. His accompanying article is entitled "How Frank Lloyd Wright Got His Medal". To give you an idea of the tone the teaser reads, "He behaved rather like Moses with a quart of skimmed milk and an aggressive gall bladder ...." Another story of note is "The Guns at Falaise Gap", a first person account of one of the most crushing and least known American victories of WWII. Magazine measures 8"x11" and has 96 pages. Color ads include Old Smuggler Scotch, DeWar's "White Label", Drambuie, Sunlane cruises, American President Lines, British Travel Assoc., and Lord Calvert Blended Whiskey.

Postcard Wright's Trading Post Albuquerque 1919
9 Postcard Wright's Trading Post Albuquerque 1919
Unknown Very good 
This card was republished later by a bookstore, but this is the early one. There's a nice description on the back, but the postmark obscures it a bit. Basically it says that the trading post was a "headquarters for Indians and their curios" located in a three story building modeled after Indian architecture. A Navajo sweat house is next to it where the Medicine man cured the sick. Card was sent to Francis Russell of Minerva, Ohio from New Mexico. The message on the divided back reads, "June 4, '19. I am feeling OK. Will leave 10:15 tonight for El Paso. Get there at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Weather better, but not very warm yet. Hope all are well. With love, Dad.

Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation 1985
13 Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation 1985
Scottsdale, Ariszona Printer only 1986 soft cover Very good 
This is a beautiful oversized, full color promotional piece likely sold to tourists. The condition is quite good with just a flat crease to the upper front corner and isolated wear spots along the spine which in no way compromise it. It's in full color throughout with gorgeous photos of Wright's work and that of Taliesin Architects. The name Taliesin derives from that of a Welsh poet-bard who sang of the glories of fine art. The piece (it seems too big to call a booklet) measures 9"x12". Some extra goodies were found tucked inside which I will pass along. One is an empty shopping bag from a Taliesin gift shop and the other a newspaper article from the March 27, 1987 Detroit News about a Weight house in Bloomfield Hills (The Gregor S. Affleck house) which the family donated to Lawrence Institute of Technology for restoration by students.

The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
14 The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
Atlanta, Georgia Great Gatsby's 1997 soft cover Very Good 
Fabulous over-sized auction catalog filled with rare and beautiful items, all of which are pictured in full color. Measures 10-1/2"x12-1/2 and is clean and tightly bound with just a few spots of wear at spine, none of which compromises its integrity. The former owner's mailing label is on the reverse. This particular catalog is noteworthy due to the sale of Frank Lloyd Wright's personal car, a 1956 Aztec Red Mercedes Gull Wing designed especially for him after he redesigned a New York City car dealership which has since been demolished. The opening bid was to have been $300,000 and Jay Leno was one of many collectors eyeing it, but, try as I may, I cannot find the gavel price. Catalog has 46 pages.

Fortune Magazine September, 1938(William Morris Theatrical Agency, Poloroid Curtiss-Wright Planes), Chamberlain, Ed et.al
17 Chamberlain, Ed et.al Fortune Magazine September, 1938(William Morris Theatrical Agency, Poloroid Curtiss-Wright Planes)
New York City Time 1938 Volume XVIII Number 3 soft cover Very good 
Before I say anything else the fly in the lower front corner of the front cover is part of the design. It's so realistic I actually tried waving it away! Now then, the magazine is clean and tightly bound and has several interesting articles. I think the best stories are the success of Canada, the Curtiss-Wright company and its planes; Poloroid (remember waiting for the picture to emerge?); and the William Morris Theatrical Agency. Other articles cover corn products, business and government (timely!), and anarchy in the hat business! Magazine measures 11-1/2"x 14" and has 142 pages. There's a small soiled area on the front cover by the volume number that I tried to erase with a document pad, but failed. Otherwise though it's very nice.

Antique Airplanes Coloring Book (1975), Copeland, Peter E.
18 Copeland, Peter E. Antique Airplanes Coloring Book (1975)
New York City Dover 1975 card cover Very Good Condition 
What a fun coloring book for anyone crazy about early aviation. Amongst the examples waiting to be made beautiful are Orville Wright's plane from 1903, the Spirit of St. Louis, WWI German bombers, a flying boat and much more. All drawings were made by Peter F. Copeland who at the time of publication was Chief of the Illustration Department for the Smithsonian. NONE of the pages have been colored. The book measures 8" x 11-1/2" and has 41 counted pages. One small defect is a blank name sticker (see photo) on the first page. The only other issue is a manufacturing defect -- the lamination on the front cover does not go all the way across to the side edge of the front cover, resulting in a thin line at the edge.

Very nice book and very interesting if you appreciate the book arts. It's a catalog of innovative book designs from various artists including Aubrey Beardsley, Frank Lloyd Wright, William Morris, Raoul Dufy, Henri Matisse and Joan Mirro among many more. Pages are colored in white, grey and black with each item explained beneath the image. The book measures 5-1/2" x 10-1/4" and is clean and attractive. The only fault is a few small isolated spots of edge wear to front. 216 pages plus additional photos at back. Very nice!
