By: N/A

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Akron, Ohio, Saalfield: 1947

Seller ID: 0068

Condition: Very good


This is an interesting piece of ephemera for children fro m Akron Saalfield Publishing. It's sort of a book, but more a booklet with a strange little spin. It's very nice and clean and measures 6"x11" with a bright attractive cover design. The only fault is one flat crease to the bottom back corner. It's amazing that this book survived in such great condition because it was designed as an activity book in which children were encouraged to clip pictures of products from... View more info

Tinted French postcards are exquisite and this one is especially charming for Easter.

Condition: Very good


This is a surprisingly hard-to-find little booklet printed entirely in shades of blue, including illustrations by the subject. The booklet measures 6"x9" and is clean as a whistle inside and out. Flat crease to lower front corner is the only fault. Nice edition to any Jessie Wilcox Smith Wilcox collection, as it offers biographical and other material, including a bibliography and the Good Housekeeping covers. View more info

It's amazing how scarce this is!

The material comes from these Fritz titles: And Then What Happened, Paul Revere?; Can't You Make Them Behave, King George?; What's the Big Idea, Ben Franklin?; Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May?; Why Don;t You G...

Seller ID: 0268

Condition: Very good


It's very interesting that the cutest babies are in the older card (1886) and the -- shall we say, odder ones? -- followed the next year. Both cards have the same copy on reverse side, which is devoted to the directions for use. Interesting, too, that this product remains on the grocery shelves today. the pastel card measures 3-1/2"x5" and the other 3-1/2"x5-1/2". Both are clean and nice, though I did re-enforce a corner crease at bottom left on the pastel card with invi... View more info

What a beautiful souvenir of the 47th Annual United Federation of Doll Clubs held August 4-9, 1996 in Dallas, Texas. The box itself is so pretty -- opens at the side to reveal a soft cover book entitled Beautiful Children which fits perfectly inside and was printed especially for the purpose. The book contains lovely illustrations in both color and black and white which, along with the text, celebrate children everywhere. Also included is a small card which explains the... View more info

Except for a small bit on toning around the edges of the white cover, this book is crisp and clean with no spine crease.

Silk Fringed Card "With the Sender's Love" Little Girl and Jump Rope

By: N/A

Price: $14.00

Publisher: Unknown, Unknown: Unknown

Seller ID: 0449

Condition: Very Good


I love these silk fringed cards, especially when they depict a scene with people -- which this one definitely does. Though her shoes look more like flower girl shoes than jumping shoes, the cute little wearer in the candy striped dress poses with her jump rope. At the bottom it reafs "With the Senders Love", but there is no message on the back. The card measures 4-1/2"x7-1/2" including the gold fringe and is very clean and nice. View more info

I wish this were the original calendar from 1930, but it's very obvious that it's not given the advertising info on the front for Akron Industrial Metals Co. But it's still very cute and even threw recipients a bone since 1975 and 1930 shared common dates which meant it could actually be used. Fortunately it was not used, or all the pages may have been discarded. Every month shows a bright color image featuring cute kids rendered by Leslie Trhasher and original advertisi... View more info

Old Scout manuals are fun to find, especially an older one like this for the Camp Fire Girls. My mother was a Camp Fire Girl and totally loved it, unlike me who was a reluctant Girl Scout and then a drop-out. The book is wonderful -- clean and bright and still containing its errata sheet. In addition to small drawings throughout there are many full page black and white photographs. The book is a handy size to carry at 4-1/2"x6-3/4" with 223 pages. Tesxt covers how to get...

Two adorable little boys with no names recorded. The photo was taken in Canton, Ohio by Parker Studio located at 104 Market Avenue. Its owner was J.B. Parker who appears on Langdon's List of 19th & Early 20th Century Photographers. He appears to have been around from 1910 to 1920, so this at least provides a guesstimate as to when this iamge was taken. One of the clues of course is the conveyance the littest guy is sitting in, but I can't find a word for it to research ... View more info

What a fun find! Poll-Parrot Shoes and the gang from the Howdy Doody Show teamed up to bring Baby Boomers a very cool premium. It's bright and colorful and contains four real photos pasted in -- the star himself, Clarabell the Clown, Mr. Bluster and Flub-a-Dub. The photo shown is printed on the page. There's also music and lyrics to the show's famous theme song (can you hear it in your head?), plus the Poll Parrot Song. The back page spread shows a cartoon ad for shoes a... View more info

What a cute little souvenir from Estes Park, Colorado. I had one before years ago and was amazed that it came unwrapped with just a hang-tag for the address and the postage. This one's exactly the same with the same three cent stamp. The doll was glued to a piece of cardboard to resemble a Native American cradle board. Together doll and board measure approximately 4", as does the tag. One side of the tag says From Estes Park, Colorado and the other side bears an address ... View more info

Seller ID: 0729

Cute little boy all spiffed up on First Communion Day. Sadly, he is lost to time -- no name, just the clue from the photography studio that he was from the Cleveland area. The knickers date him to the early 1900's. On the table next to him he's holding his little black prayer book which was the emblem of the occasion. Very handsome composition in sepia. The folder which turns into an easel for display is clean and seemingly unused. The only fault is browning to the deckl... View more info

School Girl Samplers are so charming and this museum catalog is dedicated to them. Not only are American samplers covered, but specifically Pennsylvanian ones too. Mentions are also made of those from England, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Spain and Mexico. There are 48 pages of black and white pohotographs each showing one large example. The catalog measures 8"square and is clean and tightly bound. Just a small skim of very light foxing to side edge. Otherwise lovely... View more info

A Christmas novelty that has been nicely kept. The ribbon at the top was there when I bought it, but is not original to the toy. It came with nothing in the holes so that a long string can be inserted for Santa to move along on -- of course you can take the ribbon out and do that. The center section reminds me of the lath for plastering walls, only made of cardboard. Its the spaces between the slats which help Santa jump and dance when held by the top of his head. He als...

Box is very cute which is what caught my eye, but the reel of film inside seems to be in very good condition too. The disk around which it is spooled is made of metal with no label. The box shows wear to lower corner, but is clean and still closes properly. There is no date, but research generated an ad in a 1946 Popular Mechanics magazine touting Disney's Mickey movies, of which this one, #1415B, was mentioned. The back of the box shows a penciled price of $3 and $3.00 ... View more info

This is a lovely print rendered by Ethel Franklin Botts, a student of the great Howard Pyle, as was Jessie Wilcox Smith. Her style is a bit different though with a hint of a collage look at times. She was very prolific and an important illustrator of the day. I don't know exactly what children's book this print derives from, but I do know that it's an illustration for a James Whitcomb Riley poem. The book was published in 1906. Clearly, this was a page of the book - I pu... View more info
