Seller ID: 0089


Here's a WWII trio comprised of a Red Cross sticker, a leaflet from 1944 (four sided)titled "This Is My Share", and a large folded leaflet, again four-sided and from 1944, titled "Red Cross At His Side". All are in very nice clean condition, but the large one needs to be handled carefully when opened, as old paper of this type can be easily torn. So far it's done well!

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, Frank A. Munsey: 1896

Edition: Vol. XVI No. I

Seller ID: 0504

Condition: Good


It's interesting how Munsey Magazine had a HUGE circulation and yet it's less well known than Century, Harper's and Frank Leslie's. I just got six issues though so am happy as a clam. Before I tell you about this one though here's a fun fact about Munsey -- it was considered a bit racy and some stores would not stock it due to its "undressed women and undressed statuary." This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, a previous owner trimmed off the overhang... View more info

Seller ID: 0651

Condition: Good


Wonderful souvenir of the encampment of the Grand Old Army in Cleveland in September, 1911. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does have some faults which include small tears to the yapped edges, a slight vertical crease to a few front pages and soil in a distinct grid pattern to back cover. This is not an oil-based stain, as it does not appear on the reverse side. The binding is tight thanks to two staples, but I wonder if at one time it was bound with thread, ... View more info

Condition: Very good


A little age toning to the cover is the only fault of this program published to commemorate the York Corporation (refrigeration and air conditioning) as recipient of the Army-Navy Production Award conferred on November 23, 1943. The first page indicates that the award is for high achievement in the production of war material. I have several times had programs for the Navy "E" Award, but this one surpasses it because it denotes production for both branches of service and... View more info

Three tiny pin holes and remnants of two pieces of tape to upper corners are all that mar this original piece of WWII propaganda issued on July 21, 1944 following a radio speech at 1 a.m. that morning proclaiming the peace movement by leading German generals.

The reverse side of the original has a section which translates thus: "What This Means To You -- you know what the German Generals kn... View more info

Though there is no reprint publisher named and the date shows as 1874, this booklet is far too new for this to be true. I think this is the Ray Riling reproduction from 1960. I had one once and, as I recall, it looked like this. The booklet was originally published in 1874 by the National Armory of Springfield, Mass. The pages are constructed from quality coated paper, including the fold-out diagram at the back. The booklet measures 6"x9-1/2" and has 51 illustrated pages... View more info
