1 "A Scottish Evening" Derwentwater Print
Unknown Unknown Fine 
I bought this pretty pastel print from a bookstore that went out of business some years ago, but I kept it thinking I would frame it. Seeing that that hasn't happened, however, the time has come ("the Walrus said)to talk of other things. I wish I could tell you who created it, but the artist failed to sign it. All I can see by holding a magnifying glass up to the tiny penciled writing under the image is the title, "A Scottish Evening", which depicts Derwentwater, a beautiful area you can visit online. The entire thing measures 6"x10", but the image which is set into the place designated for it (creates a mat) is 3"x5". The entire piece is crisp and clean with no damage. Perfect for a cozy little spot.

1862 Johnson's Map of Washington and Oregon
2 1862 Johnson's Map of Washington and Oregon
Unknown Location Johnson and Ward circa 1863 later printing 
The 1862 map of the territories of Washington and Oregon is a lovely thing with its hand coloring and handsome double face font for lettering. If you look in the lower corner you see the number 57 which indicates it was the 57th plate in Alvin J. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas published originally by Johnson and Browning in 1862. The question is when was this particular one printed? It states on the map that the publisher was Johnston and Ward which means it's around 1863, as that's the year the company's name changed from Johnson and Browning to Johnson and Ward. The map was made at the start of the Civil War with much land especially in eastern Oregon not settled, but you can also pick out sites such as Mt. Ranier and Fremont's Peak among others, plus you can see the route proposal for the Pacific Railroad. The map measures roughly 13" x 17". It's a guess though because it's been professionally double matted snd that's all I can see of it. Only faults are a dark spot to upper right corner and a small surface mar to mat at about 3-1/2" down from the top left. There is a small tear to the mat and a thin indentation next to it on the map itself, but the paper is not torn. The map including matting mesures 18" x 22". Will ship for $2 in U.S.

The image is in full-color, as is the cameo portrait of the Her Majesty in the upper right corner. The ribbon at the top is for hanging.

1972 Cadillac Owner's Manual in Original Plastic Case (With Emissions Booklet)
5 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.

30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
7 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!

A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
9 A Happy Easter Squeaker Postcard Peeps 1912
1912 
Novelty postcards are fun, especially the older ones with squeakers. It makes for a puffy card that I can't imagine sending in the mail, though fortunately, this one never was mailed. All you have to do is press and you can hear these little peeps on Easer morning. The card has a message on its divided back to Miss Grace Wolfinger. The message reads "With best Easter wishes from Mr. and Mrs. Gess (or Hess) April 7th 1912.

10 A Happy New Year Bird Series Postcard Large Red Bird in Pine Boughs 1910
Unknown 1910 Very good 
The greeting, A Happy New Year, is hiding in the pine boughts in the lower left hand corner, so is easy to miss. But what a handsome card this is! It's gilded and embossed with a bold image superimposed over a small winter vignette. Lovely! This card was sent to a Mrs. C. Nundahl of Perry, North Dakota. The message reads, "Dear friend, Your card received. Thanks. It is a fine ? you have. Wish I could visit you sometime. Let us send cards once in a while. Best wishes for a Happy New Year.

This is a beautiful embossed card with metallic silver details all over it which don't show up in the picture. They're literally everywhere!

Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
14 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.

All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
18 All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
Honolulu Hawaii Honolulu Star Bulletin 1950 Diamond Jubilee Edition soft cover 
This is a book, yes, but it's an ephemeral one because it's sort of like the phone book -- you can get a new one every year! This one's nice because it commemorates Hawaii's Diamond Jubilee and precedes its statehood. The front sections has a lot of Hawaiian history and there is much info later on the various island and the sugar and pineapple industries. There is also some tourist info and ads for hotels and restaurants, but this is really about what Hawaii was like at mid-century. Photo illustrated in black and white. the book measures 5"x7" and has 352 pages. The only fault is wear to the very bottom of the spine with a small loss of paper at both edges. Otherwise it's tightly bound and clean as whistle inside and out. 352 pages.
