Singin' in the Rain Souvenir Book London Palladium 1983 Starring Tommy Steele

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: 1983

Seller ID: 0098

Condition: Good-plus


An extravaganza of a souvenir book! Not only is it oversized at 9"x12" and filled with glorious stills from production numbers, but it also has a fold-out at the back which has four perforated postcards. Amazing that they're still intact, but they are. The program is marred only by spots of ege wear to the black cover and a small flat crease to the lower front corner. Very nice and a souvenir of the FIRST stage production ever. View more info

The English-Speaking Union Dartmouth House London 1926 Brochure

Price: $20.00

Publisher: London, The English-Speaking Union: 1926

Seller ID: 0677


Booklet has its faults, but is not commonly seen and is tightly bound and complete. The English-Speaking Union began in London in 1918, thanks to the efforts of journalist, Sir Evelyn Wrench. The goal, as stated on the top front banner of the brochure is "To draw together in the bond of comradeship the English-speaking peoples of the world." The organization continues today, both in the U.S. and Britain as an educational charity. In 1918 there were 774 members, but by the time this brochure came out there were 11,974.

A very handsome color view of Cunard White Star Line's steamer the R.L.M. Berengaria. This passenger liner was originally built for the Hamburg American Lines in 1912 and christened the S.S. Imperator. During WWI it saw a small bit of service as the U.S.S. Imperator where it was put to work transporting troops home from the European theatre. After the war it was given to Cunard as part of war reparations and from then on operated as the flagship Berengaria for the final ten years of its career. The card is very nice and clean. It's postmarked New York City and was sent to Mrs. O.I. Trump of ... View more info

Very nice-looking and very informative brochure which folds out to be enormous 21"x36" with a color map on one side and information and small photographs on the other. The photos front and back show two different Liverpool hotels.

Also noted is the fact that it was the route of the LMS special trains between Liverpool and London "in connection" with Atlantic steamers. Brochure is clean and attractive with just a few small ...

Stanton, England 3 Postcards (The Cross and Church Entrance, Ye Olde Bakery, Street Scene)

By: N/A

Price: $15.00

Publisher: England,

Seller ID: 1009

Condition: Very Good


What pretty postcards these are with zero publishing information. All three are beautifully rendered -- one showing a street lined with homes, the second the church and the cross at its entrance, and the third Ye Olde Bakery. None have been written on and none have been postally used. There is some incredible tiny printing on the back along the side of the rectangle that indicates the stamp, but even with my lighted magnifier no luck reading it. Nonetheless, they are a romantic and charming bit of England and each will arrive in its own plastic sleeve. View more info

Edition: 1920

Seller ID: 1067

Condition: Very good


There's a ghostly quality to these two sepia postcards shot in the Speedwell Mine at Castleton (England), one at the Subterranean Canal and the other at "Halfway House." Both show people underground. Neither was used postally, but a cryptic remark on the back of each indicates that the cards were purchased as souvenirs -- "Visited 26th July 1920." Except for a few tiny spots of edge wear, these are quite clean and crisp. Each will arrive in its own plastic sleeve. View more info

Beautiful watercolor print bursting with color and activity. I purchased it from a longtime dealer who saved plates from damage books. I had a hard time figuring out who the artist was though because he only printed the name on one print! But the style is so unique it was easy to see that the others were British artist, Frank Brangwyn's, work too. The print is tipped-in on the paper rather than being printed on it and measures in its entirety 9-1/2"x11-1/2". The image size is 6-3/4"x9". Plate is clean on both sides and ready to frame.

Condition: Very good


These diaries were printed weekly for tourists to find info on entertainment, both static and changing, yet for some reason they aren't often seen. This one covers events from Sunday, July 8 to Saturday, July 14, 1962. The ad on the cover of this one is for the famous Mirabelle Restaurant located in London's Mayfair area. The restaurant opened in 1936, but became the rage during the 50's and 60's. Someone covered the ad with an expansive signature, but I can only read the first name which is Mickey. The surname is a mystery. The booklet measures 4"x7" and has 64 pages, including some black an... View more info

This is a lovely magazine from Trinity Church, which was built in 1180 with additions built in the 13th and 15th centuries. Someone likely visited on vacation in the summer of 1957 and tucked it away in a suitcase. The local ads are charming and there is information about church events, pictures of the church, a page for women (about housekeeping)and rosters of names which might be of interest to those from the area. The clergy consisted of Rev. S. Tetley and Rev. R.J. Foster. Magazine is clean and tightly stapled, but does show thinning of the paper at the lower corners of the cover. It meas... View more info

Crisp, beautiful art catalog published to accompany an exhibit held December 6-21, 2006 in association with Sally Hunter Fine Art. The artist, Ernest Howard Shepard, is best known for Winnie the Pooh. He was born in 1879 and died in 1976, but worked well into his 90's. Shepard is associated with a gentle art that portrayed a very English point of view -- the enchanted places of childhood, and the comedy of manners, but, above it all, Winnie the Pooh. Many wonderful examples of his work throughout, each with attribution. Most in black and white, but some color. 32 Pages. Mesures 6-1/2" x 9-3/4... View more info
