Arthur's Illustrated  Home Magazine (May, 1875)
1 Arthur's Illustrated Home Magazine (May, 1875)
Philadelphia Timothy Shay Arthur 1875 No. 5 Volume XLIII soft cover Very Good 
Though not as well known as Godey's, Arthur's magazine was a hit in its day.This issue is from May,1875 and is clean and tightly bound. There is a small loss of paper at the bottom of the spine and a light stain from moisture to the bottom front corner and a light one also to bottom corner at a few pages in the back. Several pages of fashions are found at the front of the magazine, but Arthur's seemed to feel its readership was worthy of more intellectual material as well -- the first article is about South Wales. There's also articles about books and libraries, the island of Philae, burrowing bees, gardening, and the the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania. Also includes stories and poems. Ads are confined to the back, but one full page one shows an ad for an early book club offered by the magazine's publisher. The magazine was launched in 1852 by Timothy Shay Arthur of Philadelphia who remained its editor and publisher until his death in 1885. After that it stayed around a few years before slipping away into the annals of time.

3 People, Places and Flings: A Salute to Marge Alge's Spirited Coverage of Cleveland Society 1960-1980 (Card inside SIGNED by Alge)
Cleveland, Ohio Geranium Press 2001 094060115X / 9780940601154 Hard cover Fine condition Very good condition 
I forgot I had this -- it's been in the closet for four years. It's not that I didn't like it -- I did -- but I had another one then. It was not only fun to find it again, but the surprise ephemera tucked in was great. The book is a commemoration of Marge Alge, society editor of the Cleveland Press who kept readers happy for 20 years. This is just barely a booklet -- the cut-off is 100 pages and this one has 99. Many photographs in black and white showcasing good times in Cleveland. Inside the book are the following items:a bookmark from Richard Gildenmeister's bookshop on the Square at Shaker Heights, a newspaper article about Marge, and a card Marge sent along with the book to the well-known bookseller from whom I bought this book among many others. It contains a short comment and a SIGNATURE from Marge Alge herself. Book is excellent and will arrive in a brand new mylar cover.

New York City The American Spectator Inc. 1932-1933 Volume I, Nos. 1-7 Soft cover Very good condition 
Aren't these handsome with their original colorful bands? The bands slip on and off, so not to worry about being able to read the articles. What's interesting also is the fact that these are the first ever issues. There are many voices here that you will recognize -- Theodore Dreiser, Eugene O'Neill, Clarence Darrow, Liam O'Flaherty, Louis Untermeyer, Sean O'Casey, Booth Tarkington, and more. Closed the papers measures 9" x 11-1/2". Only volume I shows some toning to front pages. NOTE -- this is not the political magazine of the same name.

The Musical News: A Monthly Journal Devoted to Bands, Orchestras and Music In General (May 1892)
6 The Musical News: A Monthly Journal Devoted to Bands, Orchestras and Music In General (May 1892)
Reading, Pennsylvania No Authors or Editor Named 1892 Vol.II, No. 6 soft cover Good condition 
This was a small independent publication, issues of which are very hard to find. I've had it a long time, but it just surfaced today in one of my storage closets. There are short articles about arranging a programme; the death of Francesco Lamperti, the Italian singer; ease in violin playing; and others. But I do think the ads are what steal the show! Magazine is clean and tightly bound, but does show some toning to the back cover (see photo) and a flat vertical crease, likely from having been in a mailbox. I have ironed it flat and put it in the bookpress. Magazine measures 7" x 10" and has 18 pages. The only ad that isn't musical is the one at the bottom of the front cover for the Neversink Mountain Hotel in Reading, Pennsylvania, "a magnificent new resort just compete.'

The Upper Room John S. Mogabgab. Editor Nashville, TN. Jan./Feb., March/April, 1996 Card cover Very good condition 
These magazines are new to me, but they seem to have been made nicely and thoughtfully. The art is lovely too. The magazine measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/2" with 95 pages between the two issues. Each one has its own theme. Janaury and February took on "Clothed with Christ" anf in March and April the thought of Impasse.

Arts & Decoration Combined With The Spur December, 1940, Adams, Harry S. (editor)
8 Adams, Harry S. (editor) Arts & Decoration Combined With The Spur December, 1940
Stroudsburg, PA Artspur Publications Inc. 1940 Volume LIII, Number 1 soft cover Very good 
This issue represents post glory days for the Spur Magazine which during the Depression never flinched at hard times. It was all about the good life and so it still is here, but the format has changed and it's double billing on the masthead. The format is different too -- the size is smaller at 10"x12-1/2" and no longer shows beautiful photos of debutantes and society brides. The old theme is still there though with talk of homes in Honolulu, a New York penthouse, getting the most out of horseback riding,ski vacations, skeet shooting, thoroughbred poodles and contemporary furniture. Magazine is clean and tightly bound with no mailing label. Articles are in black and white, but there are color ads for Plymouth and Four Roses whiskey.

A Wilder in the West; The Story of Eliza Jane, Anderson, William (editor)
10 Anderson, William (editor) A Wilder in the West; The Story of Eliza Jane
De Smet, South Dakota Unknown 1971 soft cover 
Very nice clean booklet SIGNED on title page by editor. If you collect Laura Ingalls Wilder this is a nice item to deepen the collection. It tells the story of Laura's sister-in-law Eliza and her experiences homesteading in De Smet, Dakota Territory beginning in 1879. The account is told in Eliza's own voice, as the booklet is comprised of the transcript of a speech Eliza gave to the Department of the Interior in Washington D.C. Sadly, the last few pages of the original manuscript went missing, so the story ends a bit abruptly, but additional material was added beneath by the editor about Eliza and the Wilders. 17 pages. Booklet was distributed by the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society Inc.

Esquire '65, Arnold Gingrich, Editor
12 Arnold Gingrich, Editor Esquire '65
New York, New York Esquire Inc. 1965 Limited Edition Haed Cover in Slipcase Fine condition No jacket as per design 
What a nice find in such beautiful condiiton, plus an inscription to Kay Williams from the editor, Arnold Gingrich. The print run consisted of 1500 books of which this one is #1338. The contents are stories written by these authors: Heinrich Boll, Christopher Davis, Bruce J. Friedman, Charles Mohr, James Morris, Malcolm Muggeridge, David Piper, Charles Price, Tom Wicker, Tennessee Williams, Thomas Williams, and Tom Wolfe. The book and its slipcase are clean and bright with no defects of note. The book mesures 5" x 7-1/2" and has 270 pages. The page and page edges are pristine and the binding is very tight -- clearly never read. The slipcase shows one tiny spot on the front cover and a bit of light toning along the edges of the paste-on. Overall it's very nice book. Yes, it's a book, but its contents are the best of the 1965 fiction in the magazines.

Lithuanian Art in Exile (1948), Augius, Paulius (editor)
13 Augius, Paulius (editor) Lithuanian Art in Exile (1948)
Lithuania T.J. Vizgirda 1948 Card cover Good condition Good condition 
Booklet has toned uniformly throughout, but is very clean and tightly bound. It's soft cover and oversized with a dustjacket and has many works of art in both color and black and white, the works of many Lithuanian artists.The only fault to the booklet itself was a hanging corner to the top front cover which I repaired with archival tape. The jacket shows some loss of paper at three small spots of spine, one front corner, one tear to back corner and a small chip to bottom edge, but I was able to place the jacket in a mylar cover which not only stabilized it, but made it very attractive. There is much text at the beginning, all in ENGLISH, followed by the exhibition art. It measures 8-1/2" x 12" and has 78 pages.

The Human Betterment Course: Personal Lessons in Body and Brain Building for Health and Efficiency (1919), Brennan, John
17 Brennan, John The Human Betterment Course: Personal Lessons in Body and Brain Building for Health and Efficiency (1919)
New York Bureau of Human Betterment Inc. 1919 soft cover Good 
This is a very scarce item which I have been researching on and off for months. It’s a nine lesson course written by the former editor of Popular Culture magazine in which he wrote articles about birth control when it was highly controversial. That topic and the title of this course in body building brought up the dark story of E. S. Gosney and his The Human Betterment Foundation located in Pasadena, California in 1928. Gosney’s goal seemed to envision America and apple pie, but it was really all about eugenics and the involuntary sterilizations of Californians considered lacking by the standard of the Gosney’s organization. Gosney also was linked with Nazi Germany. However, if there is a connection between these two entities I can’t find it. Brenan’s course came out in 1919 and Gosney’s Foundation began in 1928. The course appears benign – much like Swoboda’s – body building, positive thinking and mind over matter. There are nine lessons pesented simply, again just as Swoboda’s were. Everything is clean and nice, but I think this was at one time in a portfolio. Both the front cover and foreword have been trimmed down (all text remains) and there is no back cover.

18 Brewer, Jo (editor) The Alphabet Butterfly Coloring Book for Limerick-Loving Lepidopterists (1975)
Waltham, Massachusetts Capra Press 1975 First Edition stated Card cover Very good condition 
This may be the cutest coloring book I've ever had. It's a cute, sneaky, fun item which teaches kids (and adults) about butterflies and limericks. None of the pictures have been colored, so the fun is yours. It's really a book you can play with no matter what your coloring skills are. Some of the pictures are for adults, others for kids.The book measures 7" x 8-1/2" and is clean and tightly bound with 61 pages. There is a bit of sunning to spine and a tiny stain to front cover by spine, but otherwise it's great.

19 Brewster, Carly (editor) Views of Paris and Its Festivals: Works of Banque de France and Musee Carnavalet (2010)
Washington D.C. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System 2010 Card cover Fine condition 
There's a lot of reasons to love this exhibition catalog. First of all, the text is in ENGLISH. Secondly, its an exhibition catalog replete with color photographs printed on coated paper. Then there's the fact that it's brand new and has pretty two-tone blue maps printed inside both covers. What's remarkable though is the art depicting fireworks from 1644 which had pyrotechnics for the King's Feast on Place de Palais in August, 1644 to the marriage of Napoleon I and the Archduchess Marie-Louise in 1810. The Booklet measures 8-1/4" x 10-1/2" and has 77 pages. The exhibition spanned October 11, 2010 to January 20, 2011. (Art III)

Laguna Hils, California Stampington Company 2015 Autumn 2015 Card cover Fine condition Jessuica Wolfe, Photographer 
This is like no magazine you have ever seen. It's about enjoying life in all its aspects. There are articles about letting go, stillness, walking, playing with light, the kindnes of strangers, 40 ways to spread kindness, small things worth savoring, life's backpack, where your stories belong, the power of paper, and more. And all of it is so beautiful. I bought this thinking it was a book, so it was a surpise to learn that it's an issue of a quarterly magazine. The magazine has a defined spine, measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 159 pages.
