Price: $24.00

Publisher: New York, Manhattan Card Publishing Co:

Seller ID: 0061

Condition: Very good


There are no dates on these beautiful unused cards, but judging by the cars in the one scene it would appear that they're vintage 1930's. All have a divided back with no writing and a moderately shiny surface. Scenes include:the New Madison Square Garden, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, the Zeppelin flying over City Hall Park, an airship flying over the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Central Office Building,the Paramount Building, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine,...

Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940

Publisher: The Gruen Watch Co.: 1940

Seller ID: 0102


Wow -- what a graphic! I'd have picked it up just for that, but it's also a souvenir from the 1940 World's Fair. Billy Rose's Aquacade was a glamorous show featuring gorgeous people, both men and women -- sort of a Ziegfield follies in water, though he referred to it as a water ballet. The funny part is that Rose endorsed his ads. The one I like best says (in Rose's own words), "Just taste one -- you'll see why I'm proud to have SPAMWICHES served at the Aquacade." Now ...

Fun souvenir postcard clearly purchased by a tourist who wrote on the back, "Ate here after South Pacific 12 o'clock June 7, 1951." Toffenetti's "the cathedral of all restaurants" was started by an Italian immigrant named Dario Toffannetti. He opened his first place in 1914 and this huge THOUSAND seat eatery in 1940 at 43rd Street and Broadway on New York's Times Square. The menu consisted of both American and European food, plain and inexpensive, and Toffenetti's was op... View more info

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, ... View more info

Very nice clean program which is more leaflet than booklet, but not too often seen. It's not a play, more of a review with a number of different acts including the Amin Brothers, Paul Sydell, Joe Smith and Charlie Dale, Giselle and Francois Szony. Alan King (comedian), and primarily -- JUDY GARLAND! There's info about each act, but Judy takes center stage. Measures 6"x9" and is clean with no tears and no names. It was folded vertically at one time, but is totally flat no... View more info

This isn't a magazine you see too often, but it's a lot of fun to read. It's big one too, measuring 10x1/2" x 13-1/2" with lots of different types of stories and many, many photographs which catch the spirit of the 40's. Some stand-out stories include: a serious piece titled "Should We Draft Labor?"; Gerald L.K.

This one has been so carefully preserved it looks almost brand new. No defect of note. Those of a certain age who are from Akron (like me!) remember well the Sealtest brand. The booklet was published in this edition to reach the crowds who thronged to the 1939 World's Fair in New York. The booklet measures 6" x 7-1/2" and has 96 pages of recipes from the Sealtest Kitchens. It's illustrated in throguhout with both color and black and white photographs. Interesting how foo...

It's relatively easier to find Earl Carroll ephemera from his California night club days than it is from his earlier NYC theatre. But here we have a program from his seventh Follies, this time featuring the famous W.C. Fields. The program has very nice ads and lot of photos of the performers including a large picture of Fields. What's also fun is a close-up article about Carroll's eccentricities, of which there were many! The program measures 9"x12" and has 25 pristine p... View more info

This is as good as a postcard gets -- very crisp and clean with sharp corners and no names or writing on the divided back. It does have a one cent stamp affixed, but was never mailed. The hotel opened in 1926, so if it were an early card it would have had a 2 cent stamp as prices raised briefly from 1925 to 1928. The hotel, a 22 story building, was named after President William Howard Taft and located on 7th Avenue at 50th Street. The Taft was Time Square's largest hote... View more info

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... View more info

In 1964 the Museum of Modern Art in New York City closed for several months to construct two new wings, enlarge the Sculpture Garden, and extensively remodel the main building. While all this was underway Art in America Magazine ran an article about it which was printed later as this booklet. It sold out of the first printing immediately, so this second printing was added with new information to keep it current. In addition to the history and facts about the still thrivi...

Do you hear strains of Barry Manilow warbling "At the Copa, Copacabana ..."? Yes, this Copa is THAT Copa. I must say though that I'm surprised at the rather folksy look of this advertising mailer. The Copacabana, after all, was noted for its sparkly, pink haired Copa Girls. They're here all right, but this time in a "gay review" titled How To Parry A Millionaire starring Betty & Jean Kean with Norman Brooks, The Dunhills, Jonathan Lucas and Herb Fields. This, too surpris... View more info

Very clean, attractive Schubert Theatre program for Sinclair Lewis's play Dodsworth starring Walter Huston on the evening of May 7, 1934.

There are also great ads for Chevrolet, Arrow Shirts, Coty, Bellodgia, Four Roses, and Chesterfield cigarettes. Measures 7" x 9-1/2" and has 36 pages.

The 1939 New York World's Fair must have been a sight to see judging by the photos in this oversized souvenir booklet. It's a big one at 9-1/2" x 12" with a total of 48 pages. This one is not about prose -- it's a picture book showing off all the wonders. The good part is it's printed on quality coated paper so the black and white photographs look great. Faults are few, but there is a diagonal crease to the upper front corner, but it shows predominately on the reverse si... View more info

New York City Ballet Balanchine After Forty Years

Price: $18.00

Publisher: New York, Program Publishing Company: Pre-1983

Seller ID: 2250

Condition: Good condition


The beautiful cover caught my eye, as did the plentiful photos of the dancers. This is not a program for a production. It's more of book celebrating 40 years of Balanchine's accomplishments and sponsored by the City Center of Music and Drama. The essay at the front is about the previous forty years of Balanchine's life as both a dancer and a director, but there is also no date. At first I thought it was 1988 because Balanchine took on the New York City Ballet in 1948. Bu... View more info

Beautiful cards, unused, clean and bright. Both scenes depict the diorama of the 1940 City of Light which was located inside the Consolidated Edison building.
