1 "This Is the Draped Dress" Matted Best & Co. Ad Woman's Home Companion 1922
Woman's Home Companion Magazine 1922 Very Good 
I am not usually attracted to most of the matted and/or framed advertising available, but this one caught my eye. The monotone art is not only elegant, but evocative of the Jazz Age -- the world of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald and the artistic women of the Left Bank. As indicated on the reverse side, the image comes from the Picture Section of Woman's Home Companion magazine July, 1922. Both it and its mat are very clean. The art is the creation of John La Gatta (1894-1977), an illustrator best remembered for his work featuring women. The overall size with mat is 12"x13" while the image itself is 9"x9-3/4"

Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
2 Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
Chicago Aldens 1951 Autumn and Winter 1951-52 Soft cover Good condition 
I wish the previous owner hadn't used the front cover as a scratch pad to see how much it would cost to buy two items. I wish even more that he or she had tried to erase it, maybe because the answer is wrong! Anyway this is a very nice catalog. I don't know this company and have never seen one of their catalogs, but I very much like the size which is easily handled at 5-1/2" x 9-1/2". The catalog has a whopping 972 pages of fashions for the whole family, toys, jewelry, engagement rings, household items, furniture, guns, shoes, typewriters and much more. This is a complete immersion into material culture at the beginning of the 50's -- 65 years ago. The order blank is still inside and has not been used. Only other fault is creasing to lower corners both front and back, but both have been discretely taped for strength.

Barbie Ken Midge Allan Skipper Booklets (1962, 1963)
3 Barbie Ken Midge Allan Skipper Booklets (1962, 1963)
U.S.A. Mattel Inc. 1962, 1963 soft cover Very good condition 
These little booklets are a collector's dream. They're small, cute, colorful and packed with products for the dolls. The booklets measures 3" across and 3-3/4" tall. The two that say Barbie, Kenm and Midge (one blue, one white) contain different items, so each is its own treat. The third booklet contains "exclusive fashions" for Barbie, Ken, and Midge, plus Allen and Skipper. This one's the thickest and has other items in addition to clothing, such as Barbie's Dream House, a Theatet, furniture and more.

Charm: The Magazine for Women Who Work August, 1952
4 Charm: The Magazine for Women Who Work August, 1952
Street & Smith Publications 1952 August 1952 soft cover Good-plus 
Charm is not a magazine you see too much, probably because there were fewer women in the workplace in 1952. I wasn't really too surprised that work played a small role in the magazine's content other than the clothes one wore to the office. But -- wow! -- what sophisticated clothes these were. I always think of poodle skirts and Donna Reed shirtwaists when I think of the 50's, but not for these women. High fashion! The other topics include the predictable -- child care and what to fix for dinner. But if you're a fashion junkie, this one is fabulous! Clean and tightly bound with a few creases to cover. Pages pristine.

Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
7 Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
Cleveland, Ohio Cowell & Hubbard Unknown (Presumed 80's) Unknown Card cover Very good condition 
The cover of this trade catalog presented by Cowell and Hubbard, Cleveland, Ohio's premiere jewelry store from 1861. It looks like the title box is falling off and the cover is wrinkled. But, no! It's flat and smooth -- the design tricked the eye. What also makes this catalog so interesting is the pairing of expensive fine jewelry with couture clothing designed by Bill Blass, Adele Simpson, Ralph Lauren and others. Catalog measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 72 pages. There's also an order blank which folds into an envelope -- unused. Unfortunately, there is no date and no clues. I came to the conclusion that it might be from the 80's because of a long sleeved wedding dress with a hat.

9 First Ladies Paper Dolls, Series #1, Dolls 1-8
Canton, Ohio J.J. Kaboth Canton Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) 1996 First Series Fine condition 
These are new to me. I just got them yesterday and have never seem them before. It looks like the local DAR had them made as a fundraiser. Each doll is in its original packaging and have not been opened. The blue paper at the top offers each lady's biography. The dolls and the inaugural dresses are on the front of each, but you can turn the package over and there's another costume -- two sheets per package. The ladies are as follows: Caroline Scott Harrison, Julia Dent, Grant; Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt; Florence Kling Harding ; Eleanor Roosevelt; Mamie Doud Eisenhower; Nancy Davis Reagan; and Barbara Pierce Bush. There's also a desciption of "THE DRESs" at the bottom of each.

Formfit In Show Business (Formfit Lingerie Sales Brochure and 33-1/3 RPM Record)
10 Formfit In Show Business (Formfit Lingerie Sales Brochure and 33-1/3 RPM Record)
Formfit Uknowm 50s'-60's softcover Very Good 
Quirky, fun collectible and probably the oddest thing I ever bought. No date on this one, but clothing on drawings would indicate late 50's to early 60's. Bright pink sales brochure was issued to the would-be Formit lingerie salesperson, or as they say on the record, "corsetiere!" Inside it says, "Join Betsy White for a preview in sound of your Show Business Career." This is augmented by a drawing of the stylish Betsy White, a female salesperson holding up a girdle, and a funky picture of an early 20th century chorus line which doesn't seem to really have anything to do with anything. The record plays great and is laugh-out-loud funny. Includes music! Brochure opens as a trifold with photo of president of the company at center. Only defect of note are two closed tears over the area that holds the 33-1/3 rpm record.

Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
11 Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
Harper Brothers 1888 Vol. XXI No. 50 soft cover Very good 
Though this is actually a magazine, it's printed in newspaper fashion and yet remains remarkably good. There are few tiny edge tears and a chip from the side of page one, but I have been able to mend all tears at folds with non-browning archival tape which is nearly invisible. When opened the magazine measures 12"x16-1/2". The two brown stickers on the face are the mailing labels to De Soto, Missouri. This is the Christmas issue so there are holiday stories, but also an article about embroideries at the London Arts and Crafts Exhibition as well as two pages devoted to embroidery patterns. There's also an article about fashions from New York and a page of art showing them.

Harper's Bazar January 7, 1888
12 Harper's Bazar January 7, 1888
Harper & Brothers 1888 XXL No. 1 soft cover Good-plus 
Very clean attractive magazine presented newspaper-style and geared to women. It's quite large, though folded in the middle and has no mailing label. There's a bit of toning at the fold and several small edge tears which have been pressed and, if s9ignificant, repaired with archival tape. Measures 11-1/2"x16-1/2" with 16 dense pages. One of the most interesting stories is a first person account entitled "How We Spent Christmas Day in India" with accompanying drawings. Other topics include winter bonnets (hence the cover girl),the occupations of women college graduates, rich and spicy foods, old English dances and several pieces devoted to New Year's. Many ads at back which are also great fun to read.

Harper's Bazar Magazine Saturday, May 26, 1888
13 Harper's Bazar Magazine Saturday, May 26, 1888
New York Harper & Brothers 1988 Vol. XXI- No.21 soft cover Very Good 
Oversized newspaper-like magazine -- one of the early Harper's Bazars. I think the pages had to have been opened by the reader which is why the top and side edges show unevenness and small tears. I have, however, repaired the tears with almost invisible archival tape to keep them from worsening. Overall this is a very clean and attractive magazine geared to women. Among the stories are American Women As Seen By Englishmen, New York Fashions, Paris Fashions, and Women As Stenographers and Type-Writers. Many ads at back which are also fun to read. Magazine measures 12" across and 16-1/2" tall when fully opened. The two strips at cover are actually mailing labels addressed to Mr.s. O.M. Munroe, De Soto, Missouri.

17 Judith Shea: La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art (March 18- May 22, 1988)
La jolla, California La jolla Museum of Contemporary Art 1988 First Edition Card cover Fine condition 
Very nice, clean art catalog which was published to accompany two exhibitions, first in La Jolla and secondly at the University of Massachusetts. At first glance it would appear that the artist created clothing. In a way she did, but no one wore the cloth ones and definitely not the sculptured metal ones. As you can see, everything is very basic in design, recalling the shapes of the 1950's. The catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 24 pages.

18 Mayfair Fashions: Suits, Accessories, Beauty for the New Season (Spring, 1946)
New York Mayfair Magazine Inc. 1946 March (Spring Issue) soft cover Good condition 
I have never seen this magazine, so of course I had to have it. It's in good condition, but there's some stubborn soil to white part of front cover. I used a document pad to rid some of it, but there's a bit left.I don't dare put any chemicals on it, so I have to concede to its vintage charm. There's also some creasing and an abrasion to upper left corner of back cover.The contents are wonderful -- lots of clothes and accessories, plus glamorous ads from high end companies such as Germaine Monteil. There's also a piece about the designs of Andre d'Aulan. Illustrated throughout with chic black and white photographs Magazine measures 8-3/4" x 11-3/4" and has 82 pages. Be sure to check out the ad on the back cover for Honeybug slippers!

McCall's Magazine January 1914 (Fashion Plates)
19 McCall's Magazine January 1914 (Fashion Plates)
New York The McCall Company 1914 Vol. XLI No. 5 soft cover 
I love, love, LOVE these early issues of McCalls. I had some more, but sold them all at the Cleveland Book and Paper show last fall and now I'm down to just this one. But this one is a pretty thing indeed, especially those pages of fashion plates (see photo two). The format was smaller in those days, so this magazine measures just 8"x11", nowhere near the size it grew to later, especially during the 30's. Even in the early days McCall's kept true to form with articles on housekeeping, sewing, fashion, and ways for women to make money (in this issue it's millinery and hostessing). Other features are children, food and cooking, and fiction. Very attractive lay-out and lots of fun ads. One is for Postum, the coffee substitute, and is displayed in full color on the back cover.

McCall's Magazine November, 1940 (Ku Klux Klan, Lenore Mattingly Weber)
20 McCall's Magazine November, 1940 (Ku Klux Klan, Lenore Mattingly Weber)
New York McCall Corporation 1940 
Did you grow up reading the Beany Malone books? If so, the author, Lenore Mattingly Weber, is in this issue with a short story. Her name jumped right off the cover for me! Other items of interest are an article about the actvities of the Ku Klux Klan, a story by John P. Marquand, and preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh, and of course those elegant fashion plates. The magazine is clean and tightly bound with a small tear to top and bottom of spine, both of which I repaired with almost invisible archival tape. Other than that there's a few tiny bits of edge wear and mild soil to light portions of front and back. I did, however, clean it with a document pad. The magazine is oversized at 11" x 13-3/4" and has 146 pages. Shios for $2 in the U.S.
