American Forestry Magazine December, 1918 (WWI Emphasis)
2 American Forestry Magazine December, 1918 (WWI Emphasis)
Washington D.C. American Forestry Association 1918 Volume 34, Number300 soft cover Good 1 
Magazine shows a little light soil to cover and a flat crease at lower front corner. The spine strip is intact, though I glued it a little at top and bottom. Magazine has no label and the pages are pristine aside from a bit of light soil and tiny flat creases to lower corners of a few pages at front. Printed on quality coated paper. Many black and white photographs. Because this was war time even forestry turned its attention to the war and those who served in it. Some of the topics include: the reforestation of France; the effect on war on France's forests; how forestry and tree culture concern the disabled soldier; memorial trees for dead soldiers; and Christmas boxes for the forest and lumber regiments.

3 Beaubourg 1977-1987: Les Dix Primieres Annees Du Centre Georges Pompidou (Beaux Art Magazine, 1987)
France Beaux Arts 1987 Card cover Cery good Condition 
Wow! What a fun magazine for the arts. I bought it at a small shop which mostly sold popular fiction. I looked around, saw nothing of interest and almost went out the door just as my eye caught this beauty. The only thing that would make it better would be both in English and French text. As it is, it's completely in French and yet you can get the drift of it anyway. Lots of color pages and many types of arts and artists. Topics cover architecture, poetry, history. Jasper Johns, Magritte, Matisse, Dance, Concerts, Pollock, Man Ray, photography, Manet, De Kooning, Post-Modernism, Sculpture, Collage, and more.The mgzine measures 8-3.4" x 11" and has 130 pages.

Californie Illustration Pour L'Exposition De Paris 1900. California Paris Exposition.
4 Californie Illustration Pour L'Exposition De Paris 1900. California Paris Exposition.
Calfornia / Paris California Paris Exposition Commission 1900 soft cover Good condition 
This is such a seldom seen and beautiful booklet it's amazing that someone kept it only to let it incur defects. I never like to buy items with problems, but this one called for a rescue mission. The biggest problem when I first got it was the cloth spine strip which was completely missing on the front and the spine, but somehow remained on the back. I used a heavy brown book tape, but only on the naked parts -- if you look at the back cover you'll see the original cloth. The others issues are two snapped off corners, one page where something sticky must have caused a small abrasion, and some rubbing to gold edges. The booklet has gorgeous graphics in pastel colors and much information in three languages -- French, English and German. The booklet measures 7" x 10" and has been deeply discounted due to condition.

Chapelle Du Rosaire of the Dominican Nuns of Vence
5 Chapelle Du Rosaire of the Dominican Nuns of Vence
Vence, France No publisher stated 1996 Card cover Fine condition 
Not long ago I saw a documentary about the beautiful windows designed by Matisse for the chapel of a nunnery in France. So when I saw this booklet about it I had to have it. Matisse considered this project his master work and indeed it is. The booklet is gorgeous, printed on quality coated paper with bright, beautiful photography accompanied by description. It measures 7-1/4" x 10" and is as new. I doubt it was ever read. Would make a lovely gift.

6 Compagnie Generale Transatlantique French Line "Liberte"
Paris French Line 1950's soft cover Very good 
Beautiful travel guide to the luxury of the French Line's star ship "Liberte" which was purchased to replace the Normandie. It had previously been the Europa, but was bought due to its high speed turbine engine for service to the French Line. However,two disasters -- breaking away from her moorings and crashing into a wrecked ship and later a fire caused a delay of five years -- but when Liberte finally made her debut she wowed them! Guide shows art renderings of all the many amenities, plus inset photographs. The whole theme is one of a dreamy Valentine to the "good life." Measures 8-1/4"x10-1/2" and has 32 pages including a centerfold of the ship in full color.Clean and nice -- no date, but circa 1950's.

France Illustration Magazine July, 1948
7 France Illustration Magazine July, 1948
Paris Revue Hebdomadaire 1948 soft cover Very good 
Very large magazine measuring 11"x15", published in Paris in the FRENCH Language. The cover photo shows a scene from the United States Republican Convention in Philadelphia that year. The magazine was political, but it also discussed books, science, art, and cinema among other topics. The stories in this issue cover the politics Of Finland and their elections; Rouen, the tourist port on the Riviera; the ransom of liberty; the clouds of Cuba; electricity; and the Grand Week of a horse race. Magazine is clean and nice with no label. Only faults are a small tear to outer edge of front cover repaired by me at back with non-browning archival tape and a bit of light soil to back cover.

9 French Hand-Tinted Photo Postcard Woman at Tea Table 1922
France 1922 Very Good 
Pretty in peach is this lovely young woman seated at a tea table alone -- or is she? Her expression may say otherwise! The details and the hand tinted dress, tea things, lamp and flowers add so much charm. This card was sent in the mail from Vianen, but is still quite lovely with no real wear. The divided back has a lengthy message and was sent to someone in Europe.

French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
11 French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
Paris Reutlinger No date Near Fine 
The tinting of this card is so subtle you don't notice it at first glance. But there are green leaves and a pale pink gown. I'm not sure what this lovely lady is doing, but she's definitely in a flower garden. The card has not been used, so no real clue to date. But it appears to be from the early 1900's. The back is not divided and bears no writing. Up in the left hand corner at front it says that it's part of series no. 12.

16 Japonisme: Japanese Influence on French Art 1854-1910 (2 catalogs, 1975)
Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Museum of Art et al. 1975 First edition soft cover Very good 
These are examples of beautiful and informative art catalogs. There's a large one that's like a book and another thin one to augment it. The smaller one is most common,but usually it doesn't include the over pages protecting the cover as shown here. There is much to read in the large book which features full page tipped-in color art in addition to that which is printed on the page, primarily in black and white. The catalog measures 8" x 10-1/2" and is very clean and tightly bound. Cover is plain white and pristine, designed with a dustjacket which shows a small horizontal crease to lower front edge. Printed on high quality glossy paper. Essays include the following: Japonisme; Early Sources and the French Printmaker 1854-1882 by Gabriel P. Weisburg; Japanese Influence on French Prints 1883-1910 by Phillip Dennis Cate; Japanese Influence on French Painting 1854-1910 by Gerald Needham;. and Japonisme and French Decorative Arts by Martin Eidelberg and William R. Johnston. The smaller booklet is in black and white with both photos and art. It measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 26 counted pages. Catalogs were published to accompany the exhibit held from July 9, 1985 to January 26, 1976 at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Rutger's University Art Gallery; and The Walters Art Gallery.

L'Opera De Paris No XXIII (1964)
17 L'Opera De Paris No XXIII (1964)
Paris Fornisseur Des Theatres Nationaux 1964 No. XXIII Card cover Good condition 
The cover of this catalogue is a bit worn at the front cover as you can see with edge wear and small creases along the spine, none of which impinge on the binding. I almost passed it by, but when I saw the clean, bright pages and, best of all, the amazing people working on the season's operas. Open near the beginning and what do you see but Chagall himself painting backdrops! And in the middle there is the diva herself -- Maria Callas in "Norma." So amazing to see such talent in one place. There's much more to read about other operas of the season illustrated with black and white photos. There is also a print of the cover laid-in. Catalogue measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 64 pages, plus ads at back. ENGLISH language. Ships to $2 media in the U.S. Other countries WELCOME. Please use the contact button and tell me what item you want and where it is going and I'll provide an exact shipping cost.

The Michelin Guides to WWI are collected by WWI buffs. Most of the time you see these without their jackets, but this one retains it.
