Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
1 Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
New York, New York The New York Botanical Garden June, 1920 Volume 5, No. 2 soft over Very good 
Beautiful publication -- not exactly a magazine, but rather a sequential section which offers beautiful color plates and popular descriptions of the plants. The idea was to subscribe and every so often a new installment would be added to the whole which could then be bound when completed. This installment begins on page 17 and finishes on page 32. There are eight plates printed on heavy coated paper, plus the accompanying information on each. Plants include button-bush, common corylopsis, climbing fumitory, shining aphelandra, beaked hazel-nut, showy obedient plant, hydrangea, and dyphilla. Measures 7-1/2"x11-1/2". Very beautifully done and very clean. I think there was a yapped edge at the sides at one time, but they tear so badly that they usually either fall off or get trimmed off. This one appears to have been trimmed. Lovely!

Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940
2 Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940
The Gruen Watch Co. 1940 soft cover 
Wow -- what a graphic! I'd have picked it up just for that, but it's also a souvenir from the 1940 World's Fair. Billy Rose's Aquacade was a glamorous show featuring gorgeous people, both men and women -- sort of a Ziegfield follies in water, though he referred to it as a water ballet. The funny part is that Rose endorsed his ads. The one I like best says (in Rose's own words), "Just taste one -- you'll see why I'm proud to have SPAMWICHES served at the Aquacade." Now THAT's what you'd call glam for sure! :-) Measuras 9"x12" and has 32 pages and three full page color ads -- Coke, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, and Chesterfield cigarettes.

Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
3 Canada 1939 New York World's Fair Edition
Ottawa,Canada Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Department of Trade & Commerce 1939 Soft cover Good 
This is really a nice publication from the 1939 World's Fair, all about Canada. In part, it beckonsto travelers, but it's also a serious look at Canada's industries and exports. The book is tightly bound and clean, bit as with every copy I have ever seen, it has a few faults. The spine shows wear to top and bottom, though I have re-glued it and it's firm. There's also a little bit of pink stain on the front page, creasing to upper front corner, and the page opposite the color plates shows some foxing. Overall though, the book is quite wonderful with a pull-out color map,lots of photos, and several fold-outs about various industries, including the manufacture of cellophane. Book measures 5-1/2"x 8-3/4" and has 176 pages.

Earl Carroll Theatre New York Program 1928 (W.C. Fields)
6 Earl Carroll Theatre New York Program 1928 (W.C. Fields)
New York City Earl Carroll Theatre 1928 soft cover Very good 
It's relatively easier to find Earl Carroll ephemera from his California night club days than it is from his earlier NYC theatre. But here we have a program from his seventh Follies, this time featuring the famous W.C. Fields. The program has very nice ads and lot of photos of the performers including a large picture of Fields. What's also fun is a close-up article about Carroll's eccentricities, of which there were many! The program measures 9"x12" and has 25 pristine pages. Nice quality item, clean and tightly bound with just a tiny abrasion to front cover.

7 Hammer Galleries 40th Anniversary Loan Exhibition 1928-1968 For the Benefit of the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York

The quality of this art catalog is what beguiled me. Inside and out it's top drawer. It's a big one too measuring 9" x 12" and has 58 pristine pages printed on glossy paper.

Judy Garland RKO Palace Theatre Program 1956
8 Judy Garland RKO Palace Theatre Program 1956
New York RKO Palace Theatre 1956 soft cover Very Good 
Very nice clean program which is more leaflet than booklet, but not too often seen. It's not a play, more of a review with a number of different acts including the Amin Brothers, Paul Sydell, Joe Smith and Charlie Dale, Giselle and Francois Szony. Alan King (comedian), and primarily -- JUDY GARLAND! There's info about each act, but Judy takes center stage. Measures 6"x9" and is clean with no tears and no names. It was folded vertically at one time, but is totally flat now. Very nice.

Jules Podell's Copacabana Advertising Folder (1950's)
9 Jules Podell's Copacabana Advertising Folder (1950's)
New York City Jules Podell No sate circa 1950's Very good condition 
Do you hear strains of Barry Manilow warbling "At the Copa, Copacabana ..."? Yes, this Copa is THAT Copa. I must say though that I'm surprised at the rather folksy look of this advertising mailer. The Copacabana, after all, was noted for its sparkly, pink haired Copa Girls. They're here all right, but this time in a "gay review" titled How To Parry A Millionaire starring Betty & Jean Kean with Norman Brooks, The Dunhills, Jonathan Lucas and Herb Fields. This, too surprises me because everybody who was anybody sang there -- Harry Bellefonte, Peggy Lee, Danny Thomas, Dean Martin etc. etc.. Also surprising is the Brazilian atmosphere paired with Chinese cuisine! Very interesting mix. Mailer closes to 5-1/2" x 7" and opens to 11" with a two page spread inside. Nice collectible from an iconic club. There is no date, but Michael Durso's orchestra was there all through the 50's.

10 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Inc. (Designed by Cipe Peneles 1964)
New York City Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Inc. 1964 First edition card cover Very good condition Good-plus dustjacket 
This is a hard item to find. I've never had one before, but I bought it years ago and it has been in a box for at least ten years. It's very nice, clean, and tightly bound with a purple dust jacket over a white card cover. The size is unique also, measuring 5" across and 11-1/2" tall and has 125 pages with many beautiful black and white photographs taken by several photographers. There is also a a lengthy text which explains the goals for the center, the history of the Lincoln Center concept, the constituent members for the center, the Lincoln fund for education and creative artistic advancement, and Lincoln Center -- the past is prelude. At the back there is much general information. The photographs capture performances, details of the interior, and beautiful pictures of the exterior.

Menu Act I Restaurant New York
11 Menu Act I Restaurant New York
New York City Act I No date Card Fine condition 
Very attractive menu for a restaurant that was clearly located in the theater district. There is no date and no city, but there IS a very good clue. At the bottom of the central panel of the menu is this comment, "Act I has a "Hot Line" telephone to Golden Theatre Ticket Service -- we will make ticket reservations for you directly from the reservation desk on the 16th floor." I'm almost certain that Act I was a New York City restaurant because the Golden ticket service remains there. Here's an example of the prices -- prime rib $7.25; Cornish hen Kiev $5.75; and whole stuffed lobster $8.75. This colorful menu measures 8-1/2" x 15" and is clean and crisp

12 National Biscuit Company Luncheon Celebrating New Bakeries (Feb. 20, 1904)
New York City National Biscuit Company 1904 Soft cover Good condition 
This is a very scarce item, expensively created. It was published for those attending a luncheon in celebration of the National Biscuit Company's new bakeries at its buildings on 15th St. and 10th Ave. New York City. Opening page and a subsequent one shows gold and red design plus a color picture at back showing a little boy in a yellow raincoat clutching a box of crackers. Text is on heavy paper and includes the speeches of dignitaries. Measures 6-1'2" x 9-3/4" with many unnumbered pages. The inside is very clean but does show faint dampstaining to top margin of pages, a stain to front cover, a repair to lower spine which seems to be holding, and a chip to bottom spine and to lower edge. Overall a very good collectible rarely seen. (Bus.)

New York City Ballet  Balanchine After Forty Years
13 New York City Ballet Balanchine After Forty Years
New York Program Publishing Company Pre-1983 Card cover Good condition 
The beautiful cover caught my eye, as did the plentiful photos of the dancers. This is not a program for a production. It's more of book celebrating 40 years of Balanchine's accomplishments and sponsored by the City Center of Music and Drama. The essay at the front is about the previous forty years of Balanchine's life as both a dancer and a director, but there is also no date. At first I thought it was 1988 because Balanchine took on the New York City Ballet in 1948. But I then noticed that he was still listed as a director. He died in 1983. Booklet measures 9" x 12" and has 41 counted pages, some of which described past performances. The booklet is clean and tightly bound showing a few isolated areas of edge wear to cover and a scratch to front cover and one on reverse side. Otherwise quite nice.

New York City Harbor Festival 1977
14 New York City Harbor Festival 1977
New York City Intercom Interrelated Communcations 1977 soft cover Very good condition 
I had one of these years ago and it had the same strike-out on the upper left front cover over the original price. I wonder if it's come back to me. Anyway, this is a gorgeous souvenir with BLUE pages. I know they don't look like it in the pictures, but they really are blue. There's much to read in this booklet-- first of all, the itinerary, and then on to the history and a look at the individual ships, plus info on the the Sun-Fish Sail-In and activities such as the New York Times Sail Regatta and the Shriners coming in on the water. Lots of photographs throughout too. The program measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 56 pages, plus back matter. It's a beauty.

New York World's Fair Views 1939
15 New York World's Fair Views 1939
Long Island City, New York Quality Art Novelty Company Inc. 1939 Card cover Very Good 
The 1939 New York World's Fair must have been a sight to see judging by the photos in this oversized souvenir booklet. It's a big one at 9-1/2" x 12" with a total of 48 pages. This one is not about prose -- it's a picture book showing off all the wonders. The good part is it's printed on quality coated paper so the black and white photographs look great. Faults are few, but there is a diagonal crease to the upper front corner, but it shows predominately on the reverse side. There's also a small area on the lower edge of the back cover which has a little chip to the outer paper. Overall it's clean and tightly bound. I counted 170 pictures in all with descriptions.

16 Picture Scoop Magazine October, 1942 (1st Issue)
New York Picture Scoop Inc. 1942 Vol. I, No. 1 soft cover Very Good 
This isn't a magazine you see too often, but it's a lot of fun to read. It's big one too, measuring 10x1/2" x 13-1/2" with lots of different types of stories and many, many photographs which catch the spirit of the 40's. Some stand-out stories include: a serious piece titled "Should We Draft Labor?"; Gerald L.K. Smith, successor to Father Coughlin; How To Win An Army Commission; The Story of Uncle Sam; Pleasure and Patriotism at New York's Stork Club; and Fashion with Jane Russell. There's also Hitler jokes by Danny Kaye and others. Magazine is clean and nice save one small light stain to front cover. Tightly bound and no label.

Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
17 Playbill Album New York Theater Programs (1968-80's)
New York Playbill 1968-80's Very good condition Hard cover binder; soft cover programs Very good condition 
I saw the word Playbill on the spine of the binder and had to have it, especially when I saw that the shows were older, from 1968 to the 80's. There are 14 programs in all, most of which are Playbills from the various New York City Broadway theaters, but there's also a couple from community theaters close by but outside the city, including Jones Beach. Some programs have ticket stubs stapled to them which is always a bonus. New York shows include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie; Plaza Suite; 1776; Company; Sleuth; No, No Nanette; Annie; Peter Pan and more. Very nice find for a theater buff.

18 Playbill Ginger Rogers in Hello Dolly. St. James Theatre, 1965
New York Playbill Incorporated October, 1965 Volume II, Number 10 soft cover Very good condition 
Ginger Rogers took on the Broadway role of Dolly Gallagher Levi in Janaury, 1964 and kept it until February 25, 1967 when Carol Channing took over. Did you know that the play was written by Thornton Wilder? I didn't. The program is nicely kept -- there's just a few little freckles to outer edge of front cover -- otherwise it's great. AND it hasn't been vertically creased as is so often the case. Program measures 6" x 9" and has 56 pages.
