Mughal Miniatures: Akbar Period (Six Prints in Portfolio with booklet)
7 Mughal Miniatures: Akbar Period (Six Prints in Portfolio with booklet)
New Delhi, India Pakash Books Unknown Card portfolio Very good condition 
Mughal Miniatures are a marriage of Indian and Persian painting. They are filled with life, action, and gorgeous colors, but despite the title these six beauties are not miniatures. They may have started out that way, but each print in this portfolio measures 10-1/2 x 14-3/4". There is also a booklet of the same size explaining the various works and their artists. The only fault to the contents is a stripe of toning to bottom edge of the first page of the booklet. The prints are without defects.The portfolio has its picture pasted on as per design, but there is a loose one inside for framing if desired. The portfolio does have some stains to front and back, but they aren't terrible. I had one of these collections a few years ago. I thought the ribbon to close it was blue, but I don't know that for sure. I didn't have any dark blue ribbon antway, but I had a light coral ribbon and used that as is.

India Department of Archaeology India 1960 and 1966 soft cover Very good 
The small color booklet was laid-in to the larger one so buyer gets both. I usually keep things where I find them when the topics are at least similar, if not exact.

It measures 5-1/2"x8-3/4" and has 46 pages including wonderful black and white photographs printed on coated paper. The smaller color booklet measures 5"x7" and 11 pages. No photos. Both written in ENGLISH

A Mystery Solved (Advertising booklet for Wills' English Pills) 1897 India, Will, J. Baxter
20 Will, J. Baxter A Mystery Solved (Advertising booklet for Wills' English Pills) 1897 India
Burlington, Vermont Wells, Richardson & Co. 1897 soft cover Good-plus 
I have always been fascinated by the patent medicine peddlers (otherwise known as snake oil salesmen)who offered a magic pill for anything that ailed you. Their advertising is very collectible ,be it magazine ads or trade cards. But here we have something a little different -- a booklet of 29 pages of dense text broken up by black and white art, all of which tells the story of Charles Wills who went to India, discovered the Cake of Healing and used it to make pills so fine he called them "the best pills in the world." What's interesting about it is that it's told as a long story replete with many exotic details.Quite a page-turner too! the booklet is not often seen and is clean and attractive save small loss of paper to upper front corner. It measures 6"x8". Wills eventually sold his magic formula to Wells, Richardson & Co. which also owned Diamond Dyes. Ads for the dyes are at both back and front.
