Black and White Scotch Whiskey Bridge Tally Tablet
3 Black and White Scotch Whiskey Bridge Tally Tablet
London and Glasgow James Buchanan and Company LTD. No date Hard cover folder Good folder, Very good items inside 
Love the black and white Scotties who pose for all things Scotch whiskey.I had one of these bridge tally folders years ago, but without the pencil which this one has. The pencil's cool because it too is marked Black and White along its length. The tally pad has all the pages, but only the first one is toned because it's against the printing inside the folder. The folder tells how to play Bridge and how to score. Folder measures 4" x 7-3/4" and opens up to twice that much. The only faults are a little light foxing to the white vinyl part of the front cover. The back is covered in paper which shows a skim of foxing almost all over it. But it's a nice collectible and is complete.

Courvoisier The Brandy of Napoleon Advertising Booklet c.1952
4 Courvoisier The Brandy of Napoleon Advertising Booklet c.1952
Jarnac, Frence Courvoisier Ltd. circa 1952 soft cover Very good 
Very handsome advertising booklet with no date, but a big clue! Inside the front cover is a seal which reads "By Appointment, Purveyors of Cognac Brandy to the Late King George VI". Two seconds of research and I find that King George VI of Britain died in 1952. The booklet is clean and attactive, stamped on the back with the name and address of the distributor, W.A. Taylor & Company of New York City. The booklet measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has a card cover with eight pages and recipes for mixed drinks on the inside back cover. Four pages are given to the story of the brandy and these are illustrated with color art. But the showpiece is the product spread pictured.

Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
5 Fortune Magazine November, 1934 (Father Coughlin, U.S. wines, radium, United States Rubber)
New York Time-Life 1934 Volume IX, No. 2 soft cover Very good 
Yesterday I got thirty Fortune magazines from the 30's, so if you don't see what you want let me know and I'll see if I have it. Fortune was one of the most beautiful magazines of the Depression era and still retains interest in its articles as well as its design. This time two topics caught my attention -- the ever controversial Father Coughlin and wine production in the United States. There's also stories about radium, industrial designers, U.S. Rubber and more. The magazine is very large at 11-1/2"x14" and has 142 pages. Only faults are a small chip to top front edge and minor wear to very bottom edge of spine which does not impinge on the binding. Very handsome and no label. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but extra shipping is required due to weight and size. Same for U.S. priority. U.S. media mail is just $2.00 as stated.

Hotel - Restaurant
6 Hotel - Restaurant "Wilhelmina" Delft Wine Menu (Holland)
Delft, Holland Wilhelmina Hotel Resataurant Unknown Card cover 
Very handsome and very clean wine menu. I got this with a number of other menus, all of which came from the 60's, so I'm tentatively taking a guess that the 60's prevail here too. Closed, the menu measures 8-1/4" x 14", but when completely opened it engages all three panels offering 48 wines and champagnes. The only fault is a faint shiny light strip just above the picture on the cover as if a long sticker were taken off. There's no residue and the entire menu feels smooth. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME. Please use the contact button with your destination and the item name and I will give you an exact shipping price.

Menu The Court of Two Sisters, New Orleans 1966
7 Menu The Court of Two Sisters, New Orleans 1966
New Orleans The Court of Two sisters 1966 Card cover Fine condition 
This is the prettiest menu cover for dining in a New Orleans courtyard. It catches both the ambiance and the restaurant noted for its mint juleps. In fact, it was those mint juleps that gave me the date of this menu -- in a way. Back then a mint julep cost considerably more than a martini which was 95 cents, so I thought I'd see when martinis were this price. As luck would have it the article I found was about martinis vs. juleps at Sisters -- and THERE was the answer! The menu is lengthy,bright and clean. It measures 9-3/4" x 12-3/4".

8 No. 9 Fishermen's Grotto Vintage Menu (1960's)
San Francisco, CA M. Geraldi & Sons circa 1960's Card cover Very Good condition 
What a graphic! The second I saw this menu I was hooked. It's a big one too measuring 10" x 14" and very clean and nice. It opens to show two pages of appetizers, cocktails, specials, sea food, salads, fishermen's dinners, steak, sandwiches, dessert, child's plate and beverages. The back of the menu is all about wine, champagne, mixed drinks, and other alcohol including beer and ale. (Entertainment II)

SIGNED Letter by Alexander Woollcott Endorsing Seagram's Whiskey (circa 1936)
9 SIGNED Letter by Alexander Woollcott Endorsing Seagram's Whiskey (circa 1936)
New York City circa 1936 Very Good 
Alexander Woollcott was the self-appointed head of the famous Algonquin Round Table named for the group's famous lunch and watering hole, The Algonquin Hotel. Also a big presence at these convivial lunches was Dorothy Parker. This letter is typed by Woolcott and signed on his personal stationery when he lived at 10 Gracie Square. My first clue in dating the letter was the fact that 10 Gracie opened in 1930. But the body of the letter comes with a humorous endorsement for Seagram's whiskey which struck me that there might be other letters with this message. Sure enough, I found one on ebay which wasn't dated either, but was signed. So then .... I did a little more sleuthing and -- voila! Woollcott published it as an open letter in the December 19,1936 issue of the New Yorker (he worked for the New Yorker). The letter is written on stationery with a grid pattern and has not been folded. There is some browning to edges and a tiny chip on left side edge. Otherwise it's a very nice literary collectible. Woolcott leant himself to Seagram's for a holiday promotion which is how the signed letters came to be. The one printed in The New Yorker was answered by Eustace Tilly, who was actually E.B. White, also from The New Yorker.

Cosmopolitan Magazine March, 1924, Ferber, Edna; S. ohns, Adela; Maugham, W. Somerset; churchill, Winston S.
12 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.
