Arts & Decoration Combined with The Spur March, 1941 (Golf, Policed Dogs, Horses in the Carolinas)
1 Arts & Decoration Combined with The Spur March, 1941 (Golf, Policed Dogs, Horses in the Carolinas)
Stroudsbuerg, PA. Artspur Publications 1941 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a marriage of two magazines -- Arts & Decoration and The Spur. The Spur was quite large (I have some issues listed here), but the combined magazine is slimmer and smaller at 10" x 12-1/2" with 50 pages. Subjects include the police dog, horses and equestrian sport in the Carolinas, golf in the Bahamas, valley ranching in Wyoming, American crafts, rugs and mirrored walls.

Baldwin Wallace Alumnus (July, August 1967)
2 Baldwin Wallace Alumnus (July, August 1967)
Berea, Ohio Baldwin Wallace College 1967 soft cover Good-plus 
Oversized magazine with a wonderful cover graphic. It measures 10"x 13-1/4 and has 33 pages. The back shows a mailing label discreetly placed in the area designed for it and there is also a bit of edge wear to the spine area, none of which impinges of the integrity of the binding. If you graduated from BW in 1967 or were at the Alumni party the same year there's lots of memories in this one. There's also an article about BW's admired Conservatory and the cover and fold-out celebrate the art of Felix de Weldon, the artist pictured beneath the enormous horses on the cover. There's also BW sports in here and news from the classes from 1898 to 1967

Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
3 Grand Canyon Outings (1937)
Chicago Rand McNally 1937 Second Edition soft cover Good-plus condition 
Very handsome booklet with many large photographs throughout. It came from a travel service affiliated with the Higbee department store in Cleveland, Ohio as per stamp on the back cover. This is a second version of the original which was a brochure and published in 1922. This one measures 8" x 9" and has 38 pages. The photographs are beautiful in black and white with a wash of pink to many. The text invites the visitor to see the Grand Canyon from various spots. Especially nice was the comment from Theodore Roosevelt on page one, "The Grand Canyon of Arizona fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison -- beyond description -- absolutely unparalleled throughout the wide world. Let this wonder of nature remain as is now is .... " Booklet is clean with a just three very small tears to cover edges which I repaired on reverse side with small pieces of archival tape.

Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
4 Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
Columbus, Ohio Hartman Stock Farm 1904 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a horse lover's information/advertising book issued by S.C. and M.D. Hartman, importers and breeders of Percheron Draft and German Coaching horses for their Columbus, Ohio farm. The Hartmans also operated a poultry department, but the only reference to that here is a full page color ad and a few pictures of outbuildings and a couple pages of info. The spotlight is definitely on the horses. Contents include, among other topics, these: the Barb, or the horse of the Sahara; an anatomical study of the horse; a study of the mouth of a horse; description and illustrations of Hartman Farm; origin of the Percheron; imported Percherons, home bred Percherons; and the German coach horse. Book is clean and tightly bound, measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 189 pages printed on quality coated paper. Only faults are a spine crease and a bit of light foxing to exterior page edges. Otherwise quite good. Hard to find.

New York Life Building (Omaha, Nebraska Print)
5 New York Life Building (Omaha, Nebraska Print)
Unknown Unknown Unknown Fine condition 
I bought this at an estate sale along with a small stack of other attractive prints depicting various landmarks of Omaha, Nebraska. The odd thing is there's no information other than the site and its origin. The scene shows horses and carriages and a streetcar at the side of the road, so it appears to depict the early 1900's. The image is of the New York Life building and is printed on heavy cardstock. It measures 7-1/2"x9" and is clean and nice on both sides.

6 Postcard Peter Pluto 2.05-3/4
Chicago Curt Teich Unknown Very good 
I've never seen this card before and can't find a comparable, but it's certainly attractive if you love horses.

Strader Lexington, Kentucky. The card is criso and clean, has not been used and will arrive in a brans new plastic sleeve.

This is very pretty card which also tells much about the Summit Hotel on the reverse side. It was open only from April through November and offered its guests golf, tennis, saddle horses, miniature golf, dancing and "moving pictures."

Among the celebrities who stayed there are President and Mrs. Harding, General Pershing, Thomas Edison, Henry and Edsel Ford, Cornelius and Reginald Vanderbilt and John Burroughs, author of many books on natural history.

Print Union Railway Station Omaha, Nebraska
8 Print Union Railway Station Omaha, Nebraska
Unknown Location Unknown Origin Unknown Date Very Good 
I bought this at an estate sale along with a small stack of other attractive prints depicting various landmarks of Omaha, Nebraska. The odd thing is there's no information other than the name of the site and the city. The print is older and shows just a hint of toning to bottom margin, but is otherwise without fault. Measures 9-1/4" across and 7-3/4" tall. Would be very attractive framed. Other views of Omaha available. This one depicts the Union Railway Building. The people seem to still be using horses and buggies for transportation, so this helps date it.

Gates Mills, Ohio Horse Show Committee 1960 soft cover

It also includes a horse show prize list as a separate tri-fold brochure .Both items are very clean and the graphic on the cover of the main program is wonderful.Program measures 6-1/4"x9-1/4" and has 40 pages.

The Roman Chariot Race Supplement to the Boston Sunday Globe. May 24,1896 (paper toys)
14 The Roman Chariot Race Supplement to the Boston Sunday Globe. May 24,1896 (paper toys)
Boston Mass. The Boston Sunday Globe 1896 May 24, 1896 Fine condition 
This is really cool! I sort of stumbled over it and didn't get it at first. I had no clue what it was, but when I read the instructions it became clear. A good pair of scissors and there you have it-- paper toys for kids big and little. Children would have a hard time cutting these intricate pictures, replete with horses, chariots and gladiators, but when the tabs allow the figures to stand up let the games begin! If you're a collector you probably don't want to do that even though there are nine enticing stand-ups in all. I have it in a heavy plastic sleeve and will send it to the buyer as is.

Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
15 Three Arnheim's Liniment Trade Cards (Pittsburgh)
Pittsburgh, PA D. Arnheim early 1900's Very good 
Arnheim's liniment is best known for its slogan "For Man and Beast." It's an example of truth in advertising because Arnheim's peddled his product for both horses and people. The reverse side of the card shows a glowing testament of its efficacy for people, as well as a list of maladies it could help -- rheumatism, lumbago, bruises, sprained muscles and tendons, inflammatory sore throat or quinsy, diseases of the air passages, pains in the side, back or loins, cramps or pains in the bowels, neuralgia, headache and swelled face from toothache. Two cards have the exact same copy, but the third (little girl with the hat) offers a testimnonial too. They all measure 3"x4" and are quite nice, save toning to outer border of the one with the little boy on the fence and a small corner crease to the pink one.

Detroit, Michigan Sprague Publishing 1925 First edition Hard cover Very Good 
This was a privately bound full year run of The American Boy Magazine, all 12 issues for 1925. As you can see from the photographs, the original mailing labels are on the covers.

New York The Spur Publishing Company 1939 Volume 63, No. 4 soft cover Very Good condition 
1939 was the last year YRhe Spur looked just like it did back in the 20's. As you can perhaps read under the title it was billed as "A Magazine of the Good Things in Life."

This issue is devoted to outdoor sport -- riding horses on the trails in Tennessee, hunting stag in England, polo, Sport in France, and rowing in the Pirogue Race on Bayou Barcelavia on the Lower Mississippi River. There's also an article by Howard Chandler Christy, the artist known for the Gibson Girl. Here he shows some of his portraits of real people and tells their stories.
