Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
1 Addisonia; Publication of the New York Botanical Garden 1920
New York, New York The New York Botanical Garden June, 1920 Volume 5, No. 2 soft over Very good 
Beautiful publication -- not exactly a magazine, but rather a sequential section which offers beautiful color plates and popular descriptions of the plants. The idea was to subscribe and every so often a new installment would be added to the whole which could then be bound when completed. This installment begins on page 17 and finishes on page 32. There are eight plates printed on heavy coated paper, plus the accompanying information on each. Plants include button-bush, common corylopsis, climbing fumitory, shining aphelandra, beaked hazel-nut, showy obedient plant, hydrangea, and dyphilla. Measures 7-1/2"x11-1/2". Very beautifully done and very clean. I think there was a yapped edge at the sides at one time, but they tear so badly that they usually either fall off or get trimmed off. This one appears to have been trimmed. Lovely!

French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
5 French Tinted Postcard Beautiful Woman in Garden
Paris Reutlinger No date Near Fine 
The tinting of this card is so subtle you don't notice it at first glance. But there are green leaves and a pale pink gown. I'm not sure what this lovely lady is doing, but she's definitely in a flower garden. The card has not been used, so no real clue to date. But it appears to be from the early 1900's. The back is not divided and bears no writing. Up in the left hand corner at front it says that it's part of series no. 12.

House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
6 House Beautiful Magazine May, 1933
Concord, New Hampshire The Hosue Beauytiful Publishing Co. 1933 New England Edition soft cover Very good condition 
Crisp and incredibly clean -- the pages of this magazine are like new. This isue shows a special New England segment which introduces the love of fishing, tennis, and Bennington College, plus a renovation from stable to house, and a Rockport, Mass. home renovation. There are also gardens, notes from the southwest, French cooking utensils, and bargello needlework. But the most eye-catching is the article "Design For Living: House Number Four of the Home and Industrial Arts Group at the Century of Progress, New York World's Fair, 1933." Magazine measures 10" x 13". Only fault is some small chips to outer side of lower front cover and a few areas on spine strip which needed repair. I used non-browning archival tape to secure it and it's almost invisble. See main picture. .

House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
7 House Beautiful Magazine October, 1928
Concord, New Hmapshire House Beautiful Publishing Corporation Vol. LXIV, No. IV soft cover Very Good condition 
The cover art of these magazines scream "come hither!" They're bold, colorful and graphically sensational. I was at an auction which had six boxes of them.To say they were a hit is an understatement -- they sold in a frenzy for more money than they should have. I got the last box, which was as good as the rest, but at the end of the frenzy. There's much to read here about homes and gardens with gorgeous full color ads for house items -- roofs, tiles, paints etc.. One of the more interesting stories is about the scissor craft of silhouette making and William Henry Brown who long ago snipped out beautiful images. Other articles cover peony walks, Holland bulbs, wisteria, Pompeiian gardens, house renovations, a well appointed desk, china services on display in Paris, architecture, stone versus stone masonry and much more. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 12-1/2" and is an inch thick. SHIPS FOR $2 IN THE U.S.

Photograph Three Generations In the Arbor
10 Photograph Three Generations In the Arbor
Unknown Origina No photographer Named 1890's Very good condition 
A three generation picture -- mother, maybe an aunt, young daugher, and grandmother standing under a leafy arbor. Grandma is holding her cane. At first I thought it was odd because the end of the cane looked like a golf club. But then I got out my magnifying glass and saw that what I was seeign was the foot belonging to the lady in the light colored dress. The photo measures 5-1/2" x 6-1/2" with its cardboard "mat. The paste-on photo iteself measures 4" x 5". The back shows a small bit of wear to lower right corner and a small loss of outer paper to top edge.

The Ladies' World Easter Number April, 1902
13 The Ladies' World Easter Number April, 1902
New York S.H. Moore & Co. 1902 Easter Number soft cover Very good condition 
I have never before seen this magazine and got it without even knowing it. I bought a box of Ladies Home Journals from the turn-of-the century and this was in the bottom of it. It's quite nice with no mailing label, just the usual horizontal crease. It's an oversized magazine (as many were in those days) measuring 11" x 16" and has 29 pages. There's lots to read about needlework, embroidering book covers, running the house, cooking, gardens and flowers, and mothering, plus fiction. The first story of interest is this: the Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn the Monday after Easter. Believe it or not the custom began in 1878 with 200 kids. By 1902 there were thousands. The second story is the best though!. It's about Jane Addams and Hull House in Chicago. There's a photo of her and Hull House and a lot of information about it and her work -- and all from a primary source.

Boston, Massachusetts Friends of the Public Garden 1988 Card cover Very good condition 
Beautiful booklet with 80 pages filled with information and photographs in both black and white and color. There is a little edge wear, but overall its clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. It measures 8-1/4" x 10" and has so much to see I wish I could show everything -- the sculptures are fabulous. I just suddenly remembered the one made from Robert McCloskey's children's book "Make Way For Ducklings," so of course I had to find it and it's now picture five.

16 Allen, Ellen Goodman Japanese Flower Arrangement In A Nutshell: A Primer (1966)
Rutland, Vermont Charles E. Tuttle 1966 21st printing card cover Very good condition 
The Charles Tuttle company is noted for its interesting and beautiful books about Japan. They also published the collectible small booklets for the tourist trade after WWII. This booklet was first published in 1955 and has been reprinted many times because it's filled with useful information offered in straightforward language.The focus here is on various forms of Moribana and Heika style attangements. It even includes photos of more advanced free-style arrangements which show what can be done with creativity and basic principles. The booklet measures 6"x8" and has 55 pages printed on quality coated paper. The only defects are sunning to spine and a tiny tear to the dustjacket which covers a plain white front cover. The tear is at the top of the front endflap and I repaired it at the back with a small piece of archival tape.

Colorado Springs Century One Press 1976 soft copver Near fine anderson Bill (photographer) 
Very pretty and very interesting if you're a gardener, or a natural history buff. The booklet is clean and bright and appears unread. The only fault is a small blacked out price on the back and a tiny black spot on the spine. Pages are pristine with no names or writing and very handsome photos including one in color at frontis. This is isn't a field guide -- it's narrative which tells the stories of how the wildflowers of the Rocky Mountain West got their names and their namers. Booklet measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 124 pages. Map inside back cover.

Asheville, North Carolina The Biltmore Company 1975 soft cover Very good condition 
There is a special charm to this booklet which focuses on the architecture and grounds of Biltmore. It's all about BIG, beautiful photographs with a text that's also big in print size. But the real surprise was the ticket laid-in which shows the house in full color. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 96 pages. The ticket is in excellent condition and the booklet is likewise nice, but does show a little light foxing on both sides of the cover, but none inside. The back cover also has a small ownership label in upper corner, but nothing has been written on it.
