The graphic cover of this program catches the eye! Very handsome and in nice condition too.

Measures 8"x10-1/2" and is illustrated throughout with photographs and maps. Much history, as well as the program of events and the script of the pageant staged in honor of the fe... View more info

Condition: Very good


This is a cool thing, whether you are an alum yourself or are looking for an ancestor who was a member. Looks like this was quite a bash, as brothers descended on the Hotel Hollendan for a five day gala -- December 27th to the 31st. It's interesting to note that Zeta Beta Tau was the first Jewish fraternity in the U.S.. It's not sectarian anymore, but it still was at the time of this event. The brochure measures 5-1/2"x8" and pulls out to reveal five printed page on the ... View more info

Condition: Fine


Oddly, here is no date on this pristine booklet, but opening remarks show that it coincided with the 200th anniversary of the signing of the American Declaration of Independence which places it in 1976. Laid-in is a brochure which is a second clue since it commemorates the 1976 designation of East Court Avenue, in Bellefontaine, Ohio as a National Historical Civil Engineering Landmark. It seems that this small town was the first place in the country to have a road paved ... View more info

How nice to find programs for both the 1942 Baccalaureate AND Commencement for the Class of 1942 at Ohio's Oberlin College.

Condition: Good


Wonderful souvenir of the encampment of the Grand Old Army in Cleveland in September, 1911. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does have some faults which include small tears to the yapped edges, a slight vertical crease to a few front pages and soil in a distinct grid pattern to back cover. This is not an oil-based stain, as it does not appear on the reverse side. The binding is tight thanks to two staples, but I wonder if at one time it was bound with thread, ... View more info

A very big book for a very small town -- no page numbers, but it's 1/2" thick. Very nice and tightly bound with all faults external. The former owner stamped her name and address at upper corner of cover and there are some gray marks, both front and back, which looked like they should come right off the shiny surface with book cleaner, but did not. Many historical photographs and lots of text with advertising confined to back of book. One of the most complete centennial ... View more info

A little age toning to the cover is the only fault of this program published to commemorate the York Corporation (refrigeration and air conditioning) as recipient of the Army-Navy Production Award conferred on November 23, 1943. The first page indicates that the award is for high achievement in the production of war material. I have several times had programs for the Navy "E" Award, but this one surpasses it because it denotes production for both branches of service and... View more info

With the exception of one small circular stain to front cover outside the margin of the cover image, a very tiny one at back, and a very small tear to upper front edge, program is very clean and nice. Inside is laid a very large folded advance publicity piece containing an unused registration form. But the best part is a 47 page transcript of one of the talks given at the conference addressing Whitman's world view. All pieces found together. It's a really nice additio... View more info

Here's another Cleveland item which I've never had before! Lately that's been happening quite a bit. Anyway, this one is very clean and nice with just a small bit of toning to edges. The cross on the front is a cut-out and the blue color is coming from the art inside. It's a painting and is tipped-in rather than having been printed on the page. The booklet measures 8"x10" and has 16 pages. Old Stone church is Presbyterian and very lovely, the backdrop for many weddings.... View more info
