Black and White Scotch Whiskey Bridge Tally Tablet
1 Black and White Scotch Whiskey Bridge Tally Tablet
London and Glasgow James Buchanan and Company LTD. No date Hard cover folder Good folder, Very good items inside 
Love the black and white Scotties who pose for all things Scotch whiskey.I had one of these bridge tally folders years ago, but without the pencil which this one has. The pencil's cool because it too is marked Black and White along its length. The tally pad has all the pages, but only the first one is toned because it's against the printing inside the folder. The folder tells how to play Bridge and how to score. Folder measures 4" x 7-3/4" and opens up to twice that much. The only faults are a little light foxing to the white vinyl part of the front cover. The back is covered in paper which shows a skim of foxing almost all over it. But it's a nice collectible and is complete.

Federal Smallwares Catalog
2 Federal Smallwares Catalog
New York City Federal Smallwares 1979 Catalog R1979/11 Soft cover Good condition 5-1/4 
This is a new catalog to me, but I love the cover with Santa lugging toys and books for the good boys and girls. But even the grown-ups got some goodies -- small collectibles from all over the country. The order form is still bound-in with no writing. Each item is measured and photographed in black and white. There are only a few small defects to the catalog -- two small pieces of archival tape on both sides of each corner. One last lost the corner at the back. I also added a white label due to an another partial which was half adressed, hence the plain label.The vatalog has 146 pages.

This is a grouping of John Seiberling's campaign collectibles. Seiberling, a Democrat, ran for Congress against Ayres in 1970 and not won and, but also stayed on for decades. He was also involved in the Akron Metropolitan Park System and saved Brandywine Falls from the encroachment of the Interstate highways The one that says "The Democrat who can beat Ayers" is a brochure, the other card has two sides, the bumper sticker still has its backing, and a 3" diameter button still has its pin.

The McKinley National Memorial Association 1907/1901 soft cover/flexible both items very good 
I acquired these two presidential collectibles together and decided to keep them that way, as they came from the same previous owner.

This booklet is a soft cover which measures 7"x10" and has eight decorated pages printed on excellent heavy paper. The smaller booklet measures 3-1/2"x6-1/2" and has 16 pages comprised of the speech given by the President in Buffalo, New York September 5th, 1901 where he was assassinated shortly after he finished.

This is an unusual item! So much so that the woman at the check-out laughed and laughed because she was sure I would never sell it. Well, she might be right, but I have sold stranger things.

14 Killam, Betty Never Buy A Netsuke --even one and you'll be hooked (1974)
Chester, Connecticut Rare Oriental Art 1974 Card cover Very Good Condition 
Crisp, clean booklet which discusses the Japanese figurative collectibles known as netsuke. For years I have been mispronouncing the word until I saw the phonetic helper in the first sentence of chapter one of this booklet that it's supposed to be "net-ski". In addition to an ample text (43 pristine pages) there are small black and white photographs of netsukes. The author explains what netsuke is, what constitutes a "good" one, the shapes netsuke are made in, how netsuke tells a story, three fairy tales, what do netsuke cost and more. Booklet measures 6"x 9" and is exceptionally crisp. Only fault is some light staining to plain back cover. (Collectibles Drawer II)

Munich, Germany 1978 Card cover Very good condition

This one covers helmets and other headgear from Germany. The text is in German and each item is provided with a drawing which helps greatly if you don't read the language. Once you see the item you're looking for it's easy to use an online translator for the details.
