Friday Magazine July 11, 1941 (Ann Sheridan, Windjammers, Poll Tax, Sorcery)
1 Friday Magazine July 11, 1941 (Ann Sheridan, Windjammers, Poll Tax, Sorcery)
New York City Friday Inc. 1941 Volume 2, number 23 soft cover Good-plus 
Beautiful cover art featuring the lovely actress, Ann Sheridan. The magazine is not too common and is clean and tightly bound, though it does have a few faults. I repaired the spine at top and bottom and a few tiny edge tears at back with almost invisible archival tape which is holding well. The only ther is a bit of brownign to lower back cover (see photo). Magazien is huge at 10-1/2" x 13-1/2". Story topics include Ann sheridan, FDR and poll tax, windjammers, guerilla doctors of Shensi, and sorcery.

2 Journal of the British Society of Dowsers (6 issues 1979-1883)
Ashford Kent, England British Society of Dowsers 1979-1983 soft cover Very good condition 
These little magazines are great fun to read whether you believe in dowsing, or you don't. They're all clean and tightly bound and there are no labels. One issue shows foxing to the first two pages (see last photo) caused by a catalog of books available in the Dowser Society Bookshop. The catalog almost makes it worth the defect -- no, I think it actually does! :-) The magazines measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and have around 47 pages each. Here's asample of topics: the use of numbers in magic and healing, dowsing and the healing art, dowsing in everyday life, reflexology, what makes a good dowser, intuition and dowsing, wells and well drilling, proxy dowsing, dowsing for Roman roads, weather prediction by dowsing, practice for water dowsing, the Lost Cross of Waltham Abbey, Orthomolecular Nutrition, cradle charms, change of body weight during water divining, the use of the pendulum and more.

6 Dewey, Tomas E.; colbert, Claudette; Brady, Diamond Jim See Magazine World In Action (four issues 1938)
New York V.S. Fox 1938 Jan. 12, Jan. 26, Feb. 9, Feb. 23, 1938 soft cover 
Just when I think I've seen all the mass market magazines of the 30's a new one pops up. See Magazine claimed a circulation of over 500,000 per issue, yet I can't find out anything about it. Clearly it's one the pulps of the day -- sensational stories along with odd things like How To Stall A Man and How to Dance the Shag. But it's favorite topics were Dateline-esque murders, canibalism, syphilis, and the women in the life of Diamond Jim Brady. Other noteables include a story on "New York's Man of the Hour, Thomas E. Dewey", how Lucky Strikes were made, and Claudette Colbert. Magazines are printed on newsprint, so I have repaired tiny edge tears with tiny pieces of archival tape, so they don't get larger. The magazine is big at 9" x 13". SHIPPING IS $2 FOR ALL FOUR IN THE U.S.. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but due to varying shipping amounts, please contact us with destination before ordering and I will quote exact cost.

There are also solutions if you need help, but try to hang in there and enjoy finding the clues! This booklet is not often found. I have never seen one until three days ago in Michigan.

Patricia Cronin; All Is Not Lost (sculpture art catalog, 2012), Molesworh Helen
12 Molesworh Helen Patricia Cronin; All Is Not Lost (sculpture art catalog, 2012)
USA Newcomb Art Gallery, Tulane University 2012 0966859510 / 9780966859515 Hard Cover As New Condition No Dustjacket, As Issued 
This is a gorgeous art catalog inside and out. What I like about it in addition to its beauty is the information it provides about the artist and her work. I like that there's photos of her creating these oversized sculptures. I also am taken with a section titled Ghosts and Sculpture, Harriet Hosmer and Patricia Cronin. Harriet Hosmer, as it turns out, was an artist who at the age of 20 in 1851 had a supernatural encounter. She, too, was a sculptor and here she and Cronin merge ghosts and sculpture and love and death in the 21st century. The catalog measures 8-1/4" x 10-1/4" and has 72 pages, several in color.

Dark of the Moon Souvenir Program 1945, Stone, Carol. Jenkins, George.
14 Stone, Carol. Jenkins, George. Dark of the Moon Souvenir Program 1945
New York city Picture Features Inc. 1945 1st ed. soft cover Very good 
Other than minor light freckles of foxing around the edges of the cover of this attractive Broadway theatre souvenir program it's bright and nicely cared for. The stars were Carol Stone and George Jenkins in what was not a Broadwaymusical, but still was a "musical legend." The curtain went up on March 14, 1945 and came down December 15, 1945 after a total of 316 performances on Broadway. It had a good run, but didn't carry over to 1946, likely because of the story which had to do with a male witch who begged to be human so he could court a female witch. He got both wishes, married her, and fathered a witch -- which of course was leading to disaster. The program measures 8-1/2" x 11-3/4"and has 16 counted pages. SCARCE.

17 Wilson, Colin The Unexplained Colin Wilson 1975
Lake Oswego, Oregon Lost Pleiade Press 1975 First edition soft cover Very good
