Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians Booklet (SIGNED by Lombardo & Band Members, 1950's)
2 Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians Booklet (SIGNED by Lombardo & Band Members, 1950's)
Hollywood, California Popular Programs circa 1950's Card cover Good condition 
I almost passed this one by because of the inked name on the front cover and the wear along the spine. But I opened it anyway and there was Guy Lombardo's signature! From there it got even better -- I found four more signatures from band members -- Bill Flanagan, guitarist and vocalist; Kenny Gardner, vocalist; Cliff Grass, saxman and clarinetist; Victor Lombardo, youngest brother (saxaphonist); and a name I can't decipher. It's next to Lebert Lombardo, but it's a conundrum because the first name seems to be Lebert, but the last name looks like it ends with "t." Booklet is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs and provides much information about Guy Lombardo and his family and band. As stated, the booklet has some issues, but it's still tightly bound and clean and of course the signatures are historic.

Letters SIGNED Senator Robert A. Taft, OH; Congressman Reid F. Murray, WI (1945)
4 Letters SIGNED Senator Robert A. Taft, OH; Congressman Reid F. Murray, WI (1945)
Ohio and Wisconsin 1945 Good condition 
Two letters about a minor matter brought with them a signature from Ohio Senator Robert A. Taft and longtime Congressman, Reid F. Murray. Both were Republicans trying to meet a request from a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Niss of Bellville, Ohio. Murray received a letter from a Milwaukee attorney seeking a copy of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture 1938 Yearbook titled "Soils and Men" for a Mr. & Mrs. Elmer Niss who had moved to Bellville, Ohio. Murray responded saying he would ask Sen. Taft. Taft wrote the couple saying he had no more copies. Under his signature though is written "Got 1938 Yearbook for Reid F. Murray", but it's not in Taft's writing -- likely a secretary. The two letters on government stationery are well-kept, but Murray is the better of the two. The Taft shows a few creases, toning to edges and a couple stains at top from a paperclip. Both show an indentation to upper right corner from a clip of some sort.

Cleveland, Ohio Geranium Press 2001 094060115X / 9780940601154 Hard cover Fine condition Very good condition 
I forgot I had this -- it's been in the closet for four years. It's not that I didn't like it -- I did -- but I had another one then. It was not only fun to find it again, but the surprise ephemera tucked in was great. The book is a commemoration of Marge Alge, society editor of the Cleveland Press who kept readers happy for 20 years. This is just barely a booklet -- the cut-off is 100 pages and this one has 99. Many photographs in black and white showcasing good times in Cleveland. Inside the book are the following items:a bookmark from Richard Gildenmeister's bookshop on the Square at Shaker Heights, a newspaper article about Marge, and a card Marge sent along with the book to the well-known bookseller from whom I bought this book among many others. It contains a short comment and a SIGNATURE from Marge Alge herself. Book is excellent and will arrive in a brand new mylar cover.

Postcard She Sells, Sea Shells SIGNED by Artist L.E. Hick 1907
6 Postcard She Sells, Sea Shells SIGNED by Artist L.E. Hick 1907
Germany 1907 Very good 
Cute little girl selling seashells from a basket. Pastel shades and a tongue twister too! "She sells sea shells. Here are the sea shells she sells!" The card is signed on the lower left corner L.E. Hick, '07. I am not too familiar with this artist, but I have seen Hick cards with a Japanese scene, once again though it was someone selling something. This card is not postally used, but it has a name on the address portion of the divided back -- Arleigh White. The message reads, "Arleigh, do you remember me? I would like to see you. If you can't read what is on the other side of this card ask Paul to read it. Rose K." Card is clean with just a little darkening at the lower left corner. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Postcards New Orleans Spanish Arch Patio, Brulatour Courtyard, Broussard's Restaurant (1939-40's)
7 Postcards New Orleans Spanish Arch Patio, Brulatour Courtyard, Broussard's Restaurant (1939-40's)
New Orleans, LA A. Hirschwitz; New Orleans News 1939-1940's Very Good condition 
Three colorful, crisp linen postcards each showing a different New Orleans scene. The one featuring Broussard's Paradise Courtyard Restaurant is the most interesting not only because it has a dated postmark for 1939, but because it was hand written by J.C. Broussard who was engaged in a little marketing. The message reads "While in N.O. enjoy a delicious French meal at Broussard's famous reastaurant. J.C. Broussard." It was sent to Miss Harriet Stone of Wooster, Ohio. The other two cards (Spanish Arch Patio and Brulatour Courtyard) are likewise nice -- one has not been used, the other shows attempted use with just an address. That one was to have gone to Colene Spencer of Toledo, Ohio. These are more likely to be from the 40s's. EACH CARD WILL ARRIVE IN BRAND NEW PLASTIC SLEEVE.

The War With Germany; A Statistical Summary (SIGNED, 1919), Ayres, Leonard P.
10 Ayres, Leonard P. The War With Germany; A Statistical Summary (SIGNED, 1919)
Wshington D.C. Government Printing Office 1919 Revised Edition Hard cover Good 
This is a very interesting statistical overview of WWI revised to August 1, 1919. It's also signed and inscribed by the author who was also a military colonel. The original's owner's name is readable, but another owner drew a line through it and added his name on top. The book is clean and tightly bound, but it does have one defect (see photo). There are two parallel tears at the bottom of one page and the paper between them turned into an accordion. I've seen this before, bu I cn't imgine what happened. Anyway, I ironed it flt, used archival tape to mend the tears and put it i8n the book press. It's now totally flat, but the tiny ladder of creases is still visible. The book has many graphics to show the numbers of such topics as the four million men; the six month training requirement; transportation for 10,000 men per day; food, clothing and equipment; weapons; airplanes, motors and balloons; 200 days of battle; health and casualties; the cost of a million dollars an hour; and international comparisons. Overall good with some wear to extremities and a little fraying at top and bottom of spine. Measures 6" x 9-1/2" and has 154 pages. God WWI collectible.

John Basette was a poet, a folk singer, an essayist, and a TV personality in the Greater Cleveland area.

Some Living: A collection by Lloyd Battista (SIGNED, 1961), Battista, Lloyd
13 Battista, Lloyd Some Living: A collection by Lloyd Battista (SIGNED, 1961)
Unknown Self-published 1961 Limited edition soft cover Good-plus 
Mild toning to cover edge nearest spine, but otherwise a clean, tightly bound book which may be the work of the actor/writer with the same name. He was born in Cleveland in 1937 and the book was purchased in Cleveland from a small edition. If this is the actor -- and I do think it is -- he was 24 years old at the time. His first acting credit came in the late 60's and by 1970 he was on his way. The book was inexpensively published with a plastic comb binding measuring 6"x7-3/4" with 62 pages. The poetry is not bad at all given his youth and the book is SIGNED by author thus: "The greatest thing anyone can do for a writer is to buy his work and read it. Thank you -- I hope you enjoy it. Lloyd Battista." The original owner's name is written across from it on the reverse side of the cover and is dated 1961.

18 Boyd, Sidney R. Ashland, Ohio Past and Present and In Word and Picture (SIGNED 1965)
Ashland, Ohio City of Ashland, Ohio 1965 soft cover Fine 
A souvenir program which looks like it was printed yesterday! The surprise, however, is the signature inscription at the top of the first page following two letters sent to congratulate the city on its Sesquicentennial. The booklet was signed by its author, historian Sidney R. Boyd, to Lonzo Green who was a known collector of Ohioana and a minister at Lakeside -- Ohio's chautauqua. I have bought Ohio stuff from many places and have run across Lorenzo Green countless times. As expected, there is much history here, plus historical photographs and local advertising. Booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" and is not paginated.
