Three colorful, crisp linen postcards each showing a different New Orleans scene. The one featuring Broussard's Paradise Courtyard Restaurant is the most interesting not only because it has a dated postmark for 1939, but because it was hand written by J.C. Broussard who was engaged in a little marketing. The message reads "While in N.O. enjoy a delicious French meal at Broussard's famous reastaurant. J.C. Broussard." It was sent to Miss Harriet Stone of Wooster, Ohio. Th... View more info

Condition: Fine condition


This is the prettiest menu cover for dining in a New Orleans courtyard. It catches both the ambiance and the restaurant noted for its mint juleps. In fact, it was those mint juleps that gave me the date of this menu -- in a way. Back then a mint julep cost considerably more than a martini which was 95 cents, so I thought I'd see when martinis were this price. As luck would have it the article I found was about martinis vs. juleps at Sisters -- and THERE was the answer!... View more info

Condition: Very good condition


The rounded doors and courtyards of New Orleans make very pretty postcards. These two are very clean. The one with the yellow doors shows the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans. It has not been used. The date I affixed to the pair is the result of the second card which shows Old French Courtyard, New Orleans. That one was sent to a Mrs. M.C. Binkley of Washington, D.C. and postmarked on April 7, 1956. Both cards will arrive in its own 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 D... View more info

These are gorgeous!There are nine cards dated 1975 to 1983, each of which provides a small look at the annual posters. The group I have is part of a larger set -- I think there are others sets, perhaps three or four, but this is the first time I have ever had any. Each cards offers information such as the artist, the editions, the signed numbered prints and the signatures. None of the cards have been written on and are a bit larger than a regular postcard. They measure 4... View more info

The cover of this desirable booklet shows light freckling around the edges and a one inch loss of paper to the top of spine. The latter I covered with archival tape which doesn't brown and will keep the damage contained. The photographs are wonderful -- over 200 views and scenes. It says also on the front cover that there's to be a map too, but I don't have one. With the map and none of the problems mentioned it would have been twice the price. Booklet measures 5-1/4" x ...

I had one of these before, but it didn't have what this one has -- a sizable amount of Spanish moss inside a cello bag. It lays totally flat so can be inside without damage. The booklet has two authors -- Martinez wrote about the Spanish moss and Holmes about the forgotten Wax Tree. Very interesting and in nice condition. The only fault is faint foxing to the inside of the covers, front and back, and the next page of both. I took a photo of it, but it's really quite lig... View more info
