The book is over-sized at 8-1/2"x 11" and has 80 pages. Minor small horizontal creases to spine, likely endemic to the publishing process, but otherwise clean and tightly bound. There is also a letter laid-in to accompany it. The book does have text, but it's the photographs and technical drawings that command your attention. VERY nice and not commonly found.

Trade With the World's People: A Shaker Album
14 Trade With the World's People: A Shaker Album
Pleasant Hill, Kentucky Beckett Paper Company 1976 card cover Very Fine 
This is in amazing condition -- so crisp and clean it feels like new and looks like new. It even retains it's outer envelope as well as the three extra items which accompany the booklet. They are a stencil for Shaker tomatoes, a fold-out advertisement for the famous Shaker seeds, and a small booklet which explains how and why the whole package was designed and manufactured. I have seen the booklet before, but never with all its accoutrements. The booklet is wonderful --color art and text about the entrepreneurial skills of the Shakers. The "handwritten" area you can see in the picture is a samples of correspondence between customers and the Shakers -- there are also others. Very nice historical memorabilia item. (Bus.)

Zenoleum Sheep Dip Ad and Envelope 1898
15 Zenoleum Sheep Dip Ad and Envelope 1898
Detroit, Michigan The Zenner-Raymond Disinfectant Company 1898 Very good 
The bright color of this ad and its matching envelope caught my attention immediately, but after reading it it occurred to me that I have never had anything produced by Zenner-Raymond until now. The ad is complete as you see it, printed only on the front, and fits inside the envelope which measures 3-1/2"x6". Love the bold exterior message: Zenoleum Sheep Dip Is Not Poisonous." The postmark reads Detroit April 28, 1898 -- the ad was created from an 1897 study conducted by the State Agricultural College at Fort Collins, Colorado. Nice addition to an agriculture collection
