This is one of those cascading postcard mailers, but the point of this one is not so much the views as the message. All but two pictures (plus reverse views) are gone -- likely the victims of the kids this WWI soldier sent to his family in Ulrichsville, Ohio. His name is Lt. Ernest C. Fox and he was on his way by train to Camp Sheridan, Montgomery, Alabama. The card was sent to his wife and children with this message: "Sept. 17, 1917, Dear Wife and Family, We arrived thi...

Magazine shows a little light soil to cover and a flat crease at lower front corner. The spine strip is intact, though I glued it a little at top and bottom.

This album is so attractive and in very clean, nice condition. There's a little wear to the top edge at the front near the spine, but it's minor. The album was published following Pearl Harbor, so it dates around 1942 to 1943. The album contains fifty attractive blue tinted cards which children could paste in as they received them. I can't seem to find how they got them, but they appear to have been a Hi-Speed Gas Stations premium for customers' children who joined the V... View more info

The Michelin guides are quite a good series with much information for the tourist. But they also provide a concise view of the devastation in France in the aftermath of WWI. The guide measures 6"x 8", has 176 pages printed on quality coated paper, and is illustrated with small photographs throughout. The boards are very clean as are the pages. The only faults are lack of dust jacket and a tiny chip to the side edge of the front free endpaper. Very collectible, as there i... View more info

I love a box of photographs, especially when they're hidden inside a folder. You never know what awaits. Most of the time it's a disappointment, but once in a while you find a good one. I very much like this one for a couple reasons -- one, we can see details of his uniform and his campaign hat which resembles that of a mountie, and two, we're reminded of the legions of young men who fought in WWI. The photo is sepia toned and out of its folder measures 4-1/4" x 6-1/4".... View more info

This item would never win a beauty contest. I almost didn't buy it, but then I opened the back cover and saw the magnificent fold-out in COLOR. And that did it! When I got it home I did the following to improve it: used book cover cleaner and tons of paper towels, used black book tape on spine to stabilize binding; and used document pad to clean smudges. Believe it or not, it's actually come a long way. The pages are quite clean and tightly bound -- item is not often se... View more info

I knew of this book, but never read it. I'm so glad I bought it though. It's the story of a woman in her 60's who came to France from the U.S. and was living in a beautiful house in a sleepy hamlet. But it wasn't long before the view outside the window of her parlor was shocking. WWI was down below. The book is smallish at 4-1/4" x 7" with 188 pages including some black and white photographs. The book is a series of letters sent back to America. A nice little gift to a ... View more info

This is a very interesting statistical overview of WWI revised to August 1, 1919. It's also signed and inscribed by the author who was also a military colonel. The original's owner's name is readable, but another owner drew a line through it and added his name on top. The book is clean and tightly bound, but it does have one defect (see photo). There are two parallel tears at the bottom of one page and the paper between them turned into an accordion. I've seen this be... View more info

This small book caught my eye immediately. It's an autobiography designed in the Borzoi Pocket Book look.The author found WWI to be a "Passing Show" --- at least from London until 1921, that is.The author wrote about a list of items -- Zep raids, islands, swine of all kinds, books, war, Armistice Day, Walt Whitman, ghosts, dreams, children, pawnshops, Gilbert White, famous soldiers, the Battle of the Marne and mice.

There were many items published to convince citizens to buy Second Liberty Bonds to finance WWI. I have one advertising piece here in color which is graphically appealing.
