Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program
5 Excelsior Club Cleveland New Year's Eve 1927 Musical Program "The Good Old Days"
Cleveland, Ohio The Excelsior Club 1927 soft cover Good-plus condition 
Ephemera from the Excelsior Club, a social venue founded in Cleveland in 1872, is not often seen, but here we have a program from New Year's Eve 1927. The club was much like the Cleveland Union Club, but for upscale Jewish families with a Germanic cultural background. From the beginning help from the Halle family of Halle's department store fame was integral to the club's success. The program shows the scenes of a musical "The Good Old Days" which required members to take to the stage as singers, dancers, musicians, actors and tambourine players. Looks like great fun and is a glimpse at a Cleveland landmark that closed in 1931 when the Excelsior melded into the similar Oakwood Club. Their last building became part of Case Western Reserve University. Program measures 5-1/2" x 9-1/2" and opens to two pages, plus another at back. Overall good, but it had been folded horizontally. I ironed it and it is now flat. Program includes many names.

The Art Bulletin June 2006 (Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises)
11 The Art Bulletin June 2006 (Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises)
New York College Art Association 2006 Vol. LXXXVIII. No. 2 soft cover Very Good 
Very handsome high quality magazine printed on coated paper. Many articles, but I bought it for the one about Andy Warhol and his Silver Elvises. The article is a very long one at 17 pages measuring 9"x11" and illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. The author, David McCarthy, titled the article "Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises; Meaning Though Context at the Ferus Gallery in 1963." Wonderful not only for Elvis and Andy fans, but those who like the movies of the period. Other articles include ancient art, 17th century art, Louis Kahn, and Judaic Threads in West African tapestries. Practically a book! Magazine is clean and tightly bound with no names or writing and no labels. Only faults are a little edge wear to bottom of back cover and two flat creases at two outer back corners.

Tel Aviv The Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora 1980 soft cover Very good

Theresa Bernstein An Early Modernist (Art Catalog 2000)
14 Theresa Bernstein An Early Modernist (Art Catalog 2000)
New York, New York Joan Whalen Fine Art 2000 Card cvoer Very good condition 
This interesting art catalog comes with extra goodies, including a price list for 37 works ranging in cost from $2500 to $100,000, and an envelope from the Bernstein House Foundation of Sugar Land, Texas seeking donations to have a book of the artist's work published. The goal was $100,000. Theresa Bernstein was born in Poland in 1890 and died in NYC in 2002, just two years after this exhibition. She was considered an important Jewish painter, but not all of her works focuses on a Jewish theme. She also had a love of music which also worked its way into her canvases. There's a lengthy essay at front with biographical and artistic information plus a photograph of the artist. Catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" with 32 pages printed on quality coated paper.

This is Cleveland (circa 1946)
15 This is Cleveland (circa 1946)
Cleveland, Ohio The League For Human Rights circa 1946 soft cover Very Good condition 
This booklet is not seen too often. I got it from a private collection, but it's stamped on the front #13 Collinwood High School Library 1946. This one is not about Cleveland history only insofar as it discusses its residents and their origins. The thrust of the 66 page text is to showcase and provide information on the various ethnic groups, their religions, and the problem of prejudice. What's odd is it left out the Irish who came in droves and settled on the west side. All told though it's a topic not covered too often. Measures 6" x 8-3/4". Only fault is the stamp mentioned above.

16 Touro Synagogue Of Congregation Jeshuat Israel Newport, Rhode Island (1968)
Newport, Rhode Island The Friends of Touro Synagogue 1968 Eighth printing card cover Very good condition 
I had one of these the first year I became a seller of books and ephemera, but I never saw another one until now -- eighteen years! It's not that it's rare, it's just that somehow I didn't. Anyway, this is a beautiful, expensively designed booklet which originally in 1946 was published to designate the synagogue as a national historic site. It is also the oldest synagogue building in the United States. There are several large photographs and much information in 65 pages. The booklet measures 9-1/4" x 12-1/2". The only fault is some toning to spine area. Otherwise it's pristine inside and out.

In Toleration, 1995, Battersby, Helen
18 Battersby, Helen In Toleration, 1995
Canada Fox River Paper Company 1995 Card cover Fine condition 
I've had this since 1995 when it was new. Several times I took it out with the idea of listing it, but I never did. Now, twelve years later, it's moment has come. The front and back of the cover has writing, black on black, from the preamble to the Charter of the United Nations. Inside there is one sentence penned by Kahlil Gibran from his book Sand and Foam, 1926. The quote is this: "We shall never understand one another until we reduce the language to seven words." And that is how many there are here -- seven -- compassion, pathos, perception, temperance, balance, truth and possibility. Each word is paired with a work of art by these seven artists: Chris Nicholls, Paul Dallas, Anita Kunz, Hayes Henderson. Steven Evans, Sandra Dionisi and Ed Gajdel. Booklet measures 9" x 11-1/2" and is a rather scarce item.
