41 Robert R. Rorex; Wen Fong Eighteen Songs of a Nomad Flute; The Story of Lady Wen-Chi
New York city Metropolitan Museum of Art 1974 Hard cover with Hard cover Slipcase Very good condition 
This book has been cared for very well. No defects and no names or writing. The mustard color boards are pristine, as are the pages and the slipcase. The eighteen "songs", poems , are in English, and are surrounded by beautiful art in both sepia and delicate color. The book inside its case measures 11" x 10-1/4" an and is hard cover. There's one other thing which is fun -- a handful of ephemera nestled inside. There's a Met catalog titled Scarves for Summer, two Asian greeting cards from the previous owner's friends, another Chinese exhibition notice in Naples, Florida; and yet another Chinese exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Postcard Grandstand For the Paddock, Miami Jockey Club, Romer, G.W. (photographer)
43 Romer, G.W. (photographer) Postcard Grandstand For the Paddock, Miami Jockey Club
Chicago Curt Teich Co. Unknown Circa 1920's Linen Very Good 
Beautiful linen card with just a tiny crease to tip of upperright corner. It's a gorgeous Florida day and the crowd is huge and well dressed. Look closely in the foreground and you will see a lady attireed in a slim skirt and red cloche hat -- VERY 20's. The Miami Jockey Club was relatively new in this picture shot by G.W. Romer, as it opened its door in 1925. But here's the odd part -- In 1927 a Florida Supreme Court banned on betting on horses which in the lurch for the 1928 season. In 1929 though, they came up woth a new system called the "buying option." To bet you bought a stock certificate (a postcard), and if the horse won you got a dividend. If the horse lost you were bankrupted. Betting became legal in 1931. Card is clean and unused and will arrive in a plastic sleeve.
