Irish Hospitals' Sweepstake Ticket 1953
6 Irish Hospitals' Sweepstake Ticket 1953
Ireland 1953 Very Good 
I haven't see one of these since I was a kid. My Irish grandparents used to buy them, but it was a very mysterious thing. Not only did the ticket itself look scary to me, but the whole thing was shrouded in mystery. Now I know why -- they were illegal in the U.S.!The Irish Sweepstake was not like today's lottery where numbers are drawn. Each ticket was assigned to a racehorse, so it was really a form of gambling. By the 60s the U.S. lightened up on it, but sales were already declining by then -- helped along by a report via Fortune magazine that the original motive to support Irish hospitals had morphed into goodies for for-profit businesses. The ticket is in fine condition and will arrive in a plastic sleeve backed by cardboard. It measures 3"x3-1/2". Every Irish-Americn needs one for auld memory's sake!

8 London Midland & Scottish Railway 1928 Brochure (Folds out to 21"x36" Color Map at Back)
London McCorquodale & Co. Ltd. 1928 soft cover Very good 
Very nice-looking and very informative brochure which folds out to be enormous 21"x36" with a color map on one side and information and small photographs on the other. The photos front and back show two different Liverpool hotels. Advertising at face indicated that the railway was "the best way between Liverpool and London", but was also good for the midlands, Scotland, Wales and to and from Ireland. Also noted is the fact that it was the route of the LMS special trains between Liverpool and London "in connection" with Atlantic steamers. Brochure is clean and attractive with just a few small tears to folds repaired by me at back of map with non-browning almost invisible archival tape. Measures 3-1-2"x9" folded.

14 Cather, Thomas Thomas Cather's Voyage to America in 1836 (1955)
London; Emmaus, PA Rodale Press 1955 First Edition hard cover Very good Very Good 
This is one of those booklets in hard cover -- only 48 pages, but all tricked out with paper over boards and a glassine jacket. The publisher referred to it as a miniature book, but it is not. The only miniature thing about it is the number of pages. The book itself measures 5"x8". It's very clean and nice and even the glassine jacket is in nice condition -- these usually bite the dust.The Roadale Press worked in both England and Pennsylvania, but this book came from England replete with British price on wrapper. Cather made the trip with ahis friend Henry Tyler, two Irish lads bent on adventure. Includes six full page illustrations.

16 Ferber, Edna; S. ohns, Adela; Maugham, W. Somerset; churchill, Winston S. Cosmopolitan Magazine March, 1924
New York City International Magazine Company 1924 Volume LXXVI No. 3 soft cover Good condition Fisher, Harrison (cover) 
Fun cover just in time for Mardi Gras! The magazine shows darkening around the edges -- dust stain I think, as I had no luck removing it. There's also a small piece of tape to back cover, the handiwork of a previous owner. The spine had a tear to the bottom, but I stopped it with archival tape which does not brown and is very subtle. The magazine offers fiction from three big names: Edna Ferber (Our Very Best People); Adela Rogers St.Johns (Kitty Shinn's Husband); and W. Somerset Maugham (The Luncheon." Other topics include bull fights in Mexico; an article about alcoholism, Drink: A Very Human Document by Mary Heaton Vorse who experienced it; and Winston S. Churchill's article ,"The Joke That Helped To Settle the Irish Questions. Magazine measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 186 clean pages.

Mary (Brendan Kennelly,SIGNED Limited edition, 1987), Kennelly, Brendan
17 Kennelly, Brendan Mary (Brendan Kennelly,SIGNED Limited edition, 1987)
Dublin, Ireland Aisling 1987 Limited first edition 324/5oo Limited 1st edition #324/500 card cover Very Good 
This is a lovely thing. I kept it for awhile as I am wont to do when I love something I bought for stock. But now I'm ready to send it out into the world. The booklet consists of one poem which was written in the Irish language and then translated here in English by Brendan Kennelly in a deeply personal and contemporary voice. The poem is based on "A Poem Addressed to the Virgin Mary" by Muireadach Albanach O'Dalaigh, a poet of the early 13th century. Kennelly's version is illustrated with woodcuts by Cliodna Cussen. Booklet is a stated first limited edition of which this is #324 of just 500 copies. The first page shows an inscription written to the artist, Cliodna Cussen, in Gaelic. The limitation page shows poet and novelist, Brendan Kennelly's signature. A very special item. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME.

Genii The Conjuror's Magazine (April, May, 1961, 2 issues MAGIC), Laresen, William (editor)
18 Laresen, William (editor) Genii The Conjuror's Magazine (April, May, 1961, 2 issues MAGIC)
Los Angeles Geraldine Larsen-Baker 1961 Vol. 25 Nos, 8 & 9 soft cover Very good 
Magic is timeless even though we know the magician is the keeper of tricks and secrets. So these consecutive issues of Genii -- March and April, 1961 -- are great fun. Both are in very good clean, tightly bound condition. Only glitch is a small repaired tear to lower front corner near spine on the April issue. The March issue is especially interesting, as it was mostly written by Herbert Lambert, a magician from Dublin, Ireland, who is pictured on the cover. Features magic tricks from Ireland, plus a rare magical bookplate and litho from Ireland with explanations of their significance. The April issue also holds plenty of tricks, but the interesting thing here is instructions for building a device for the old "saw the lady in two" trick and the burned alive illusion. Great ads!

19 Lewis, Janet The Legend; The Story of Neengay, an Ojibway War Chief's Daughter and the Irishman John Johnston (A Libretto)
Santa Barbara, California John Daniel, Publisher 1987 093678426 soft cover Fien condition 
This booklet is crisp and clean enough to be called new. VERY nice. It does not contain the musical score -- it's the words set to the music which were based on the author's novel "The Invasion", and before that on the legend of the romance between an Objibway chief's daughter and an Irish trader, set against the backdrop of the Great Lakes area. A special page pasted in at front shows that the operetta/oratorio was performed in 1987 by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony. Booklet measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 62 pages. The composer is Bain Murray.

New York Everyman's Library Pocket Poets; Knopf 2011 030759498X / 9780307594983 Hard cover Near fine condition Fine condition 
Very pretty little book, but not a fluffy one. This is serious Gaelic poetry in English on topics of religion, Irish culture, the importance of place, the matter of experience, and love. Among the many poets are these well-known ones: Thomas Moore, Jonathan Swift, W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, and Thomas Kinsella. But there are also women poets with beautiful Irish names. The book measures a small 4-1/2" x 6-1/4" with 240 pristine pages. The dustjacket will arrive a brand new mylar cover. A lovely gift that has no names or writing and no price-clip.
