Chessie and Peake Playing Cards in Original Plastic Box.
2 Chessie and Peake Playing Cards in Original Plastic Box.
Cincinnati, Ohio United States Playing Company Pre-1963 Plastic case Fine condition, Unused 
Chessie and Peake are among the cutest logos in all of vintage advertising, especially if you love cats. Both are noted for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, but maybe baby Chessie is especially loved.There are two decks here still wrapped in original packaging and nestled together in its original perfect plastic box. The box and its contents measure 3-3/4" x 5". There is no date here, but on the bottom of the box is a two digit postal code which means it's earlier than 1963 when the zip code was born.

Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
5 Hartman Stock Farm Horse Department 1905 (Columbus, Ohio)
Columbus, Ohio Hartman Stock Farm 1904 soft cover Very good condition 
This is a horse lover's information/advertising book issued by S.C. and M.D. Hartman, importers and breeders of Percheron Draft and German Coaching horses for their Columbus, Ohio farm. The Hartmans also operated a poultry department, but the only reference to that here is a full page color ad and a few pictures of outbuildings and a couple pages of info. The spotlight is definitely on the horses. Contents include, among other topics, these: the Barb, or the horse of the Sahara; an anatomical study of the horse; a study of the mouth of a horse; description and illustrations of Hartman Farm; origin of the Percheron; imported Percherons, home bred Percherons; and the German coach horse. Book is clean and tightly bound, measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 189 pages printed on quality coated paper. Only faults are a spine crease and a bit of light foxing to exterior page edges. Otherwise quite good. Hard to find.

Official illustrated Guide Chicago Zoological Park (Brookfield, Illinois (1942)
8 Official illustrated Guide Chicago Zoological Park (Brookfield, Illinois (1942)
Brookfield, illinois The Chicago Zoological Society 1942 Card cover Very good condition 
Very nice, clean visitors' guide to the zoo. The bright cover is an eye catcher, but the inside has many black and white photographs and 108 pages of info. There's also a wonderful, full color, crisp map which folds out from the inside back cover (see photo). Guide measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Only fault is a bit of light foxing around margins of the back cover and the page across from it, a very common area for foxing. There's one more thing, but I very much like it -- it's an inscription written on the top edge of the back of the front cover. It says, "Sunday afternoon May 23, 1943 with Dave Mirin."

Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
9 Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
Unknown Location Unknown publisher No date, but early 20th century Good-plus 
This is without question the most ephemeral postcard ever. The body of the flamingo is covered with a variety of actual feathers in an array of colors. The card is very nice overall, but does show a few tiny soil marks at the area of the neck just next to the feathers. I don't dare try to do anything about it for fear of damage.Tthe only other fault is a small flat crease to left lower corner. Card has a one cent postage stamp, but it was never marked. There's no indication of date, but I do know one thing that helps. The recipient is Bertha Randall -- I had a lot of cards sent to her and almost all had a 1900-1912 postmark. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Strader Lexington, Kentucky. The card is criso and clean, has not been used and will arrive in a brans new plastic sleeve.

Postcard Portuguese Couple in Unusual Cart
11 Postcard Portuguese Couple in Unusual Cart
Portugal Unknow Publisher Unknown Date Very good 
This is an unusual card from Portugal. A wealthy couple sits comfortably in wicker seats in a cart that looks as though it glides on runners like a sleigh. But why? No snow! Also, where does the driver sit? And which man IS the driver? Perhaps they just walk alongside the cart -- it's guaranteed to be in the slow lane! Overall, the card is charming, perhaps because of its oddities. It has not been used and will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

14 Real Photo Postcard O.C. Barber Thoroughbred Pig (Barberton, Ohio 1911)
Barberton, Ohio Unknown 1911 Very good 
At first glance this appears to be a giant pig -- which it is. But it's not just any old pig. This pig belonged to O.C. Barber, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, who succeeded with many businesses before launching this early effort at agribusiness. The card is postmarked Barberton, Ohio July 27, 1911 and sent to Mr. Sherman Lee of Seville, Ohio. The message reads, "This is one of O.C. Barber's thoroughbred pigs. He is a big one, isn't he? Tom Bairstow." Very clean and nice and easy to read. Will arrive in plastic sleeve.

The American Poultry School  Course in Poultry Husbandry  Vol. I Books 1-5, 1928
19 The American Poultry School Course in Poultry Husbandry Vol. I Books 1-5, 1928
Kansas City, Missouri The American Poultry School 1928 soft cover Good 
Charming covers and lots of serious information in these five booklets numbered consecutively 1 to 5. This was a HUGE course. I'm not sure how many booklets it takes to compile a set, but I've seen them numbered in the high 30's. I have not, however, ever seen the first five all at once, so these are pretty cool. Each booklet is a stand alone and these cover the following topics: the poultry industry, poultry farm management, intensive poultry culture, small poultry farms; principles of poultry house construction; modern poultry houses, equipment and appliances; breeds and varieties of poultry; and the principles of mating and breeding. All booklets are clean and tightly bound, but pages have toned on the ones using high acid paper and one booklet shows water marks around the margins of a page with no wrinkling - otherwise they a quite nice set. Booklets measure 6"x9" and vary in length. All are illustrated with photographs and drawings. If you are trying to fill in a set let me know, as I do have some single issues also.

20 The Chagrin Valley Hunt Horse Show 51st Anniversary September 8,9,10,11,1960
Gates Mills, Ohio Horse Show Committee 1960 soft cover 
This is a rather localized item (Cleveland, Ohio area), but of interest to people who show horses, or have family members who did at one time. It's all marked up inside -- which is a GOOD thing in this instance -- as it provides the ranking of the winners in each race. It also includes a horse show prize list as a separate tri-fold brochure .Both items are very clean and the graphic on the cover of the main program is wonderful.Program measures 6-1/4"x9-1/4" and has 40 pages.
