This lovely little girl with her bobbed hair, tee-strap shoes, and bonnet veil is adorable. In her hands are the usual rosary and prayer book given to her for First Communion.

1930 Liberty Magazine Calendar (1973 REPRINT Leslie Thrasher Art)
2 1930 Liberty Magazine Calendar (1973 REPRINT Leslie Thrasher Art)
Coshocton, Ohio Liberty Library Corporation 1973 soft cover Very good 
I wish this were the original calendar from 1930, but it's very obvious that it's not given the advertising info on the front for Akron Industrial Metals Co. But it's still very cute and even threw recipients a bone since 1975 and 1930 shared common dates which meant it could actually be used. Fortunately it was not used, or all the pages may have been discarded. Every month shows a bright color image featuring cute kids rendered by Leslie Trhasher and original advertising on the back. The calendar measures 7"x12-1/2" and has a metal hanger at the top. Only fault is a small stain over the "y" in Liberty on the front.

20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
3 20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
Akron. Ohio Saalfield Publishing 1953 soft cover in original box Very good condition 
I grew up in Akron, Ohio home of the old and beloved Saalfield Publishing Company. The company was known for books in boxes such as this one and also its licensing for Shirley Temple books. Saalfield had novels too for older kids, so we never grew out of them until we weren't kids anymore. This particular box is new to me, but I would have loved it.The box says it contains 20 playbooks for drawing, coloring, picture hunts, riddles, connect the dots, games and mazes. Twenty it may have been, but it ended up housing 22 -- no repeats and no coloring. Fun gift! Measures 6" x 9". Books are clean and bright and box is sturdy. One corner is neatly repaired with brown tape.

Around the Clock with Rocky and Ruthie 1947 (Trademark Activity Book)
5 Around the Clock with Rocky and Ruthie 1947 (Trademark Activity Book)
Akron, Ohio Saalfield 1947 soft cover Very good 
This is an interesting piece of ephemera for children fro m Akron Saalfield Publishing. It's sort of a book, but more a booklet with a strange little spin. It's very nice and clean and measures 6"x11" with a bright attractive cover design. The only fault is one flat crease to the bottom back corner. It's amazing that this book survived in such great condition because it was designed as an activity book in which children were encouraged to clip pictures of products from ads in the newspaper and paste them at the appropriate places in the story. Fortunately, this copy survived unscathed! The "story" shows a brother and sister at various times throughout the day beginning with brushing their teeth (toothplaste ad required) to a pre-bedtime game of naming trademarks. Rather odd, but cute.

Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
8 Beatrix Potter Studies II (1986)
England The Beatrix Potter Society 1986 soft cover Very Good condition 
What a surprise find this morning! Nine years ago I bought several full years of the newsletters of the Beatrix Potter Society and four booklets like this one filled with papers presented at the Society's Beatrix Potter Lake District Study Conference. All of it is long gone, but somehow this little straggler landed with a bunch of unrelated items. The booklet's articles re these: Lake District Natural History and Beatrix Potter; The Beatrix Potter Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia; Collecting Beatrix Potter; Beatrix Potter Piracies and Sequels; and Bertram Potter and the Scottish Borders. Booklet is very clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. Measure 7-1/2" x 8" and has 52 pages.

Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
9 Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio Broadway Photo Company turn of the 20th century Cabinet card Very good 
Cute little person in a very big chair. May be a rocking chair. There are no names on the back and no dates, so I'm guessing this picture was taken around the turn of the 20th century. The Broadway Photo Co. was located at 1150 Broadway, Cleveland, Ohio, but research hit a dead end from the start. The card measures 4-1/4"x6-1/2" and is very nice and clean with no wear to edges

Cabinet Card Barefoot Little Girl, Hat  Basket and Gate (A.D. Ennis, Vermillion, Ohio)
10 Cabinet Card Barefoot Little Girl, Hat Basket and Gate (A.D. Ennis, Vermillion, Ohio)
Vermillion, Ohio A.D. Ennis Unknown Date Heavy card (cabinet photo) Near fine condition 
There is no date on this cute picture of a little girl walking through a gate carrying a basket of goodies. She has incredibly long and thick hair, wearing a straw hat, and is barefooted. There's nothing on the back except one word printed in ink at the lower corner -- Meta. Could Meta be her name? It's sad to see a charming picture only to realize that the subject is lost in time. The photo was taken by A.D. Ennis, a photographer from Vermillion, Ohio. I have many cards with no names, but I've never yet had anyone solve a mystery.

Cabinet Card Little Girl with Flower Basket Sitting on Doorstep (Joshua Smith Studio, Chicago 1876-1886)
11 Cabinet Card Little Girl with Flower Basket Sitting on Doorstep (Joshua Smith Studio, Chicago 1876-1886)
Chicago Joshua Smith Studio Unknown Very good 
Joshua Smith was no ordinary run-of-the-mill photographer who at this point in his career specialized in photographing children such as this cute little doorstep girl. In 1878 he won a coveted Silver Medal at the Paris Exhibition and in 1883 was elected president of the American Photographers Association. He also wrote many articles on chemicals and photography. There is no date on this photo, but research shows that the address on the back of it --206 North Clark Street, Chicago --was occupied by him from 1876-1886. The cabinet card is in sepia.

Chapter Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild Complete Paper Cutout for Petite Napoleon Coach
13 Chapter Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild Complete Paper Cutout for Petite Napoleon Coach
Detroit, michigan Fisher Body Craftaman's Guild No date stated Card pieces, paper envelope Very good condition in good envelope 
This is an interesting item, published for a contest which was advertised around the world. In the U.S. the kit was sent via the local newspapers, in this case the Detroit Times. Oddly, there is no year stated, so I did some research and found a 1932 Syracuse, New York newspaper story about the contest. Then envelope had many small tears, so I taped the edges to stabilize it. Inside here is a card about the contest itself, another one with intricate instructions and four large cards with many, many, many pieces to assemble. The sad part is, though not surprising, only boys were allowed to compete for college scholarships and money. Not only did they mention it, but they mentioned it many times. Even the application reads "Boy's Name." Nonetheless this project is a gem of paper engineering. The envelope measures 13-1/2" x 18-1/2" and all items fit inside. Take a look on Google and see the beautiful examples in full color.

Child Life Magazine January, Febrary, 1937
14 Child Life Magazine January, Febrary, 1937
Chicago Tand McNally & Company Vol. XVI, Nos. 1 & 2 soft cover Good-plus 
The covers of these magazines are a delight with bright colors and a dollop of whimsey. I put them together in one offering not only because they are sequential, but because othere's a story titled Adventures In Candle Street which is a two parter and now both parts are present. The magazine is color limited inside, but somehow that still seems to charm. Readers will find poems, stories, things to make, things to do, and special features such as junior etiquette, how a 10 year opld boy helped save the lives of six people, movie town news. There's even a secton for mothers. Magazines measure 8-1/2" x 11-1/2" and have 96 and 48 pages respectively. No mailing labels. Only fault is some loosening to front cover of the Feb. issue which I repaired with non-browning, almost invisible archival tape.

Japan No publisher stated No date. Circa 1940s-50's Card cover Like new 
This is a charming paperdoll book with a Japanese flair. There's no date, but the pictures seem to suggest that it comes from the 1940's or 50s. Everything is die-cut, so no scissors necessary. Just pop out the dolls, the clothes, and the accessories and it's time to play. There are four pages filled with items -- I've photographed them all so you can see everything that comes with it. Book measures 7-1/2 x 10-1/2" in beautiful condition.

Donald Duck Treasury (A Giant Little Golden Book 1957 1st Ed.)
16 Donald Duck Treasury (A Giant Little Golden Book 1957 1st Ed.)
New York Simon & Schuster 1957 First Edition hard cover Good-plus Walt Disney Studio 
Technically, yes, this is a book, but when it dates from the 50's it's also ephemeral. Lots and lots of bad things can happen over almost 60 years to an inexpensive book given to kids! It's a rather hard-to-find title which contains three stories about the Disney character, Donald Duck -- Donald Duck's Toy Train; Donald Duck's Adventure; and Donald Duck and the Witch. First edition as per letter "A" found at lower corner of gutter on last page. Book shows mild wear to extremities including a small loss of foil to spine at top and bottom, but is very clean and tightly bound. Former owner's name is written on reverse of front cover in printed area designed for adding it. It's dated December 25, 1959. Full color illustration by Walt Disney Studio. Measures 6-1/2"x8" and is unpaginated.

Drawings and Illustrations by Ernest Howard Shepard (art catalog 2006 -- Winnie the Pooh artist)
17 Drawings and Illustrations by Ernest Howard Shepard (art catalog 2006 -- Winnie the Pooh artist)
London (U.K.) The Fine Art Society 2006 soft cover Very fine condition 
Crisp, beautiful art catalog published to accompany an exhibit held December 6-21, 2006 in association with Sally Hunter Fine Art. The artist, Ernest Howard Shepard, is best known for Winnie the Pooh. He was born in 1879 and died in 1976, but worked well into his 90's. Shepard is associated with a gentle art that portrayed a very English point of view -- the enchanted places of childhood, and the comedy of manners, but, above it all, Winnie the Pooh. Many wonderful examples of his work throughout, each with attribution. Most in black and white, but some color. 32 Pages. Mesures 6-1/2" x 9-3/4". Pristine.

E.H. Wright Advertising For Boys and Girls Down on the Farm
18 E.H. Wright Advertising For Boys and Girls Down on the Farm
Kansas City, Missouri E. H. Wright Company Unknown Early 20th Century (No date) soft cover 
This is a cute little booklet designed to attract children, but also contains info for grown-ups to buy Wright's Condensed Smoke and Wright's Ham Pickle. The latter was huge -- 27 lbs of pickling salt which would cure as much as 280 pounds of meat! The booklet derived from the home office and was sent to smaller companies to send to their customers. In this instance it was stamped on the back F.H. Nickerson, Druggist, Greenwich, Ohio. The booklet is clean and nice with two tiny staple holes from mailing. Booklet measures 4-1/4"x7" and has 14 counted pages, each with color illustrations for the kids.

East London Record, 1992 No. 15
19 East London Record, 1992 No. 15
London East London History Society 1992 No. 15 Card cover Fine condition 
I bought a handful of these little magazines a week ago and am amazed at how interesting they are. Any issue is an Anglophile's delight. This issue offers the following articles: A Childhood in Bow; Frederick Rogers Bookbinder and Journalist; The Ingles of Limehouse; Satan, Sufragettes and Salvation; The Bethnal Green Tube Disaster; and They Carried the Banner. The latter is about education in poverty stricken neighborhoods. People were binding together to improve things, but chose a name which might be a little .... It was The King Edward Ragged School Youths' Institute and Christian Mission. Magazine measures 5-3/4" and 8-1/4" with 48 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs with no defects.

Ethel Franklin Botts Fairy Print 1906
20 Ethel Franklin Botts Fairy Print 1906
Unknown 1906 Very good 
This is a lovely print rendered by Ethel Franklin Botts, a student of the great Howard Pyle, as was Jessie Wilcox Smith. Her style is a bit different though with a hint of a collage look at times. She was very prolific and an important illustrator of the day. I don't know exactly what children's book this print derives from, but I do know that it's an illustration for a James Whitcomb Riley poem. The book was published in 1906. Clearly, this was a page of the book - I purchased it from a long time dealer who salvaged plates from disbound and damaged children'books. He was NOT a breaker. The print measures 6-1/2"x9-1/4" with the image measuring 5"x7-1/4". Would make a charming image for a little girl's room.
