I have seen these calendars online, but never hard one before I bought this one yesterday. Had it been the W.C. Wyatt I would have been over the moon, but I'm happily moon-gazing enough with this one. Not only is the condition excellent, butthe art inside is rich and bright, though you'd never know it from that blah cover. Moral of the story: don't judge the calendar by its cover! If you love operettas this is a treat. Here's the songs depicted and the shows they come from: "The Merry Widow Waltz" from The Merry Widow; "Song of the Vagabond" from The Vagabond King; "One Alone" from The Desert ... View more info

There must have been many of these programs, but it's a bare bones publication with no pictures or art. And yet it tells a great story. Irving Berlin staged the entire show "This is The Army" which had a cast consisting of all soldier actors. It was a musical replete with an orchestra, vaudeville, original songs, and a ladies chorus. It opened on Broadway in the summer of 1942 for a four week run which turned into twelve weeks Eleanor Roosevelt liked it so much she saw it more than once. After that the show hit the "road" for Europe, the Far East, and the Pacific theatre of war. The last show... View more info

This has to be one of the best theater souvenirs ever. It's oversized at 12" square, has card pages, and pops with color and images that shine like firworks. There's not a lot of text, but every word is part of the fun. This was a theater tour which began December 10, 2003 and ended on May 1, 2005. I think this program came from the Clevelnd show in 2004. There were many people on both stage and behind it and also outside entities who worked on it too -- Walt Disney Pictures, Family CommunciationInc. for Mister Rogers footage, Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Paramou...

I had one of these years ago, so I recognized the partial front cover on this repaired booklet. It must have fallen apart so someone used what was viable of the front cover and made a sturdy new cover. I thought it was likely to have been a librarian, but there are no stamps showing any previous owners.The booklet is quite good, a reprint of two articles from The Music Quarterly Magazine. The text is tight and clean with just a couple points off a few pages at front. Booklet is illustrated nicely. View more info

This one is very handsome and presents as brand new, but of course is not.

Measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 20 counted pages. View more info

There's a lot of reasons to love this exhibition catalog. First of all, the text is in ENGLISH. Secondly, its an exhibition catalog replete with color photographs printed on coated paper. Then there's the fact that it's brand new and has pretty two-tone blue maps printed inside both covers. What's remarkable though is the art depicting fireworks from 1644 which had pyrotechnics for the King's Feast on Place de Palais in August, 1644 to the marriage of Napoleon I and the Archduchess Marie-Louise in 1810. The Booklet measures 8-1/4" x 10-1/2" and has 77 pages. The exhibition spanned October 11,... View more info

Open up this issue of Rolling Stone and there's 1992 back again for another turn around the block.
