I've had one of these before, but not with the address of Khrushchov still laid-in. It's dated June 26,1959 and includes a portrait of the Russian leader. The booklet was printed to accompany the USSR exhibit. The cover is laminated as per design -- only fault is a wrinkle in the lamination on the front cover, a fault on the other one I had too. Booklet is otherwise very nice and clean. Measures 6-1/2" x 8-1/4" and has 16 pages. Color photo at back cover and inside back cover. View more info

Very nice entertainment magazine devoted to nighttime pleasures including dining and dancing, but especially theatre. It's oversized at 10"x14" and has 116 pages. Lots to read, but I think the main story is Men At Work, a lengthy look at musical greats George Kaufman, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. Another fun p0iece is about going to Russia to make the rounds of the Russian theaters. Also of interest are the story of the musical White Horse Inn,T he Alchemy of Music, and the New York Angle on World Wide Fashion. The subscription card is unused and still bound it and there is no mailing label. View more info

George Crile was a physician married to Helga Sandburg, daughter of the famous author Carl Sandburg. On the title page it says that the manuscript was "criticized, corrected and edited" by her. Crile's father was a founding partner of the Cleveland Clinic. George Crile Jr, offers here an account of a trip taken to the U.S.S. R. during which he was able to interact with colleagues, which of course gave him an insider's view. His tone is one of gratefulness for the experience and pleasure in uncovering much that was good. He died in 1992. The booklet is bound with a plastic comb to lie flat. Ve... View more info

I bought these random issues a long time ago and just found them in a box. They're clearly about Communism. which of course was a big topic of the time. They measure 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" and together have 227 pages. As you might guess, there are a lot of topics, but here's an example: Who Are the Conspirators? An Historic Call for Peace, The Farm Question in California, The Fight To Abolish Segregated Schools, Hands Off Guatemala!, and The Death of Joseph V. Stalin. The 1953 issue is ALL about Stalin. Magazines are clean and tightly bound. View more info

Usually there's a name or two that jumps out of Collier's, but this time no luck. It's still interesting though with a hard look at what Russia was up to in 1949, penned by Frank Gevasi; an article about how much money it was going to cost to make TV mainstream; and Native American dancing by various tribes (beautiful pictures). There's also a really cool ad by Wurlitzer advertising a jukebox that looks like a work of art! As always, this magazine has fiction too. Magazine measures 10-1/4" x 13-3/4" and sports 82 pages. The whole thing is beautiful inside and out with a spine that feels like s... View more info

Sheet Music Alla Admirably Dedicated to the Famous Artiste and Metro Star Mms. Alla Nazimova (1919)

Price: $30.00

Publisher: New York, The Jones Music Co.: 1919

Edition: First edition

Seller ID: 2586

Condition: Finecondition


Beautiful graphic on this sheet music which is not often seen. Anita Owen wrote both the lyrics and the music and dedicated it to Russian emigre, Alla Nazimova, known for her roles on Broadway and to a lesser degree her silent movies. Nazimova also briefly ran a hotel in Hollywood which she called The Garden of Alla. Rumor has it that Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Hepburn and more enjoyed the hi-jinks. I don't usually buy sheet music, but this one is like new and the graphic, if framed, would make a nice statement on the wall. It measures 9" x 12" View more info

There are many photos in both black and white throughout the the ample text. There are also color graphs and maps. View more info
