Condition: Very Good


The graphic cover of this program catches the eye! Very handsome and in nice condition too. There's only a few small faults, being a tiny loss of paper to tail of spine. a small chip to top front corner next to spine and a minor bit of soiling to very edge at bottom of title and frontis pages. 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 festivities. Unpaginated, but it's pretty hefty for a program. View more info

I am delighted to have found these! I have about seven Jacquard coverlets, so was quite charmed when I found them.

Both catalogs were printed to accompany displays at the Conner Prairie Pioneer Settlement. Wove in Indiana was for the December 1978 event. It has 28 counted pages with beautiful photos printed in blue ink, a common color used for Jacquard coverlets which are the product of a loom that used a series of cards (like IBM cards) to make...

Seller ID: 2144

Condition: Good-plus condition


What a colorful and interesting scene this is. Not only does it show a handsome fire station, but also vehicles, fire fighters, and the horse power that fueled the machinery. The card shows a tiny bit of corner wear and writing on divided back. It was never sent, but it has been written on across the dividing line with no attempt at an address. The writing is a little hard to read, but the gist of it is the writer was busy with company and likes the recipient's choice of cards. Nothing too exciting there, but the picture at the front is great. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve. View more info

I found these disbound articles in a box of Architectual Review Magazines which I bought at auction. I almost tossed them out until I realized how worthy they are. Each of the 24 focuses on a particular area within a state located anywhere in the country. They all derived from American Preservation magazine, so the color photographs are stunning. Each article is pretty long with many images. I wish I had more room to show them. Areas are these: New Orleans Lower Garden District; Providence, Rhode Island; Salem Massachusetts; Eutaw, Alabama's Greek Revival Architecture; Galveston, Texas; Mizner... View more info

This is a remarkably sharp photo with great contrast. The only reason I know that it was a warm day in 1909 Taylorsville,Indiana is the pencilled date and place on the back. There is much here to tell you such things as the homeowner's appreciation of decorative pots of flowers and their liking of rocking chairs. Even the little boy is rocking on a rocking horse. But the thing I noticed first was the young man off to the left of the porch. If you look at the young lady in the white dress ON the porch you can see she is not pleased with him. He's not even looking at her, nor is he engaging wit... View more info

This booklet is not often seen. It measures 5-3/4" x 8-3/4" and has 26 pages. The beauty of it is the blue illustrations throughout, all of which are large photos, 12 in all. The booklet shows creasing to lower corner of cover and for a few pages inside. There's also a small tear at the bottom of each page. The first page has a small square of paper over the tear, but it doesn't show on the back -- just archival tape. I think the previous owner tried glue first which may have required the patch. The rest of the pages have archival tape on both sides (see photo). There are great pictures of ... View more info
