30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
5 30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
New Orlean, LA G.F. Castleden 1924-1929 Fine in Very Good Envelopes 
These are a lovely find if you are enchanted by the architecture of New Orleans. I've never seen this many in one place ever, but I got them from the estate of a Castleden collector. Castleden was a British artist who emigrated to New Orleans and continued his career as an artist there. The cards were aimed at the tourist trade -- ten scenes for a quarter. Three of the original envelopes will accompany them, but the cards weren't in them, so I am uncertain which belong where. The scenes are Old World beautiful and include, but are not confined to, these subjects: Pirate Alley, the monastery of the Capuchian monks, the staircase of the old St. Louis Hotel, the courtyard of the old Spanish Arsenal, oyster schooners, the Spanish Gate of Cabildo, the Courtyard of the Little Theatre, and the Little Green Shutter Tea Room. None have been used and all are in excellent condition. The envelopes are a little worn, but not bad. The photo shows an array of cards, but not all -- there really are thirty!

6 A Change of Place:Ohio Arts Council Artist Residencies (1997)
Columbus, Ohio Ohio Arts Council 1998 Card cover Fine condition 
This is one of those Ohioana items which are new to me. It's always fun when a new one appears. This over-sized booklet traces the beginning of the residential movement for Buckeye artists in 1983 when Ohio joined the Studio Workspace Program in Long Island, New York. Next came the Headlands Center for the Arts near San Francisco in 1997. The artists in residence shown in this booklet were Gretchen Stevens Cochran, Malcolm Cochran, James Duesing, Gilda Edwards, Sean Foley, Mitchell Sanford, Karen Snouffer, Kay Willens, and Walter Zurko.

8 A Pocket Guide To New Zealand (Military Personnel 1943 WWII)

Very nice clean booklet, one of many for various countries in which U.S. military forces maintained a presence in WWII. The booklet measures 4" x 5-1/4" with 43 pages plus a blank page for notes (unused). Though the subject is serious, there are a few cartoony pages to inject a bit of humor -- there's also a map, a list of common phrases, and an overview of New Zealand slang. We have other pocket guides in the series, so let me know if you are lookingg for a specific title.

10 A Visitor's Map of Florence And Useful Notes for Tourists (circa 1926)
Florence, Italy Fratelli Alinari Art Reproductions (circa 1926) Circa 1926 soft cover Very Good 
A very handsome fold-out map serves as the centerpiece to this Italian tourist brochure. The map shows numerous ads on one side for tourist items such as Italian leather goods and the map itself on the reverse. It is oddly undated, but one of the ads for purses offers a clue when it announces that the company which placed it won the Grand Prix for embroidery in London and Paris in 1926. Brochures also offers an 7 day itinerary for a trip to Florence and information on hotels. Wonderful addition to a collection of travel ephemera from the Golden Age. Measures 5-1/2"x7-1/2" closed.

Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
14 Art Objects and Antiques On Exhibition at Heinz Ocean Pier (Early 1900's)
Atlantic City, New Jersey H.J. Heinz Company Circa Early 1900's card cover Good-plus condition 
This is such a charming catalog, published to accompany an antiques and art exhibit on Heinz Ocean Pier in Atlantic City, "the seadside home of the 57 varieties." I'm surprised that there is no date, but I certainly can't find one. The clothes, however, offer a good clue. There were 162 items on display, many of Asian origin, but not all. The guide book measures 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" and has a few black and white photographs throughhout. The one I showed is the only damaged one -- loss of upper corner which does not impinge on the integrity of the image. Two wonderful color scenes inside -- one at the back of the front cover showing the beach and the second inside the back cover showing the Heinz Model Kitchens in Pittsburgh, PA.

This reads "These two coupons will be accepted for one admission to the Boston Baseball Grounds." All three are stamped on the back.

British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
17 British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
Fleetway Press 1924 soft cover Very Good 
This is a fun find because I've never had one before and it's a guide to a huge exhibition which celebrated Britain and the 58 - count 'em - countries that made up the Empire in 1924. All of the countries participated with the exception of Gambia and Gilbraltar, so when King George V opened the exhibition on April 23, 1924 (St. George's Day), it was a moment to remember. The second photo shows a world map that came from the pocket at the inside front cover. The guide measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 128 pages illustrated with photographs. Great ads throughout, plus those contained in the advertising section in photo three. The exhibit and the guide would remind you of a World's Fair.
