Edition: Volume IX, No. 2

Seller ID: 1286

Condition: Very good


Yesterday I got thirty Fortune magazines from the 30's, so if you don't see what you want let me know and I'll see if I have it. Fortune was one of the most beautiful magazines of the Depression era and still retains interest in its articles as well as its design. This time two topics caught my attention -- the ever controversial Father Coughlin and wine production in the United States. There's also stories about radium, industrial designers, U.S. Rubber and more. The magazine is very large at 11-1/2"x14" and has 142 pages. Only faults are a small chip to top front edge and minor wear to very ... View more info

SIGNED Letter by Alexander Woollcott Endorsing Seagram's Whiskey (circa 1936)

By: N/A

Price: $95.00

Publisher: New York City, circa 1936

Seller ID: 1913

Condition: Very Good


Alexander Woollcott was the self-appointed head of the famous Algonquin Round Table named for the group's famous lunch and watering hole, The Algonquin Hotel. Also a big presence at these convivial lunches was Dorothy Parker. This letter is typed by Woolcott and signed on his personal stationery when he lived at 10 Gracie Square. My first clue in dating the letter was the fact that 10 Gracie opened in 1930. But the body of the letter comes with a humorous endorsement for Seagram's whiskey which struck me that there might be other letters with this message. Sure enough, I found one on ebay wh...

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! The menu is lengthy,bright and clean. It measures 9-3/4" x 12-3/4". View more info

Very handsome and very clean wine menu. I got this with a number of other menus, all of which came from the 60's, so I'm tentatively taking a guess that the 60's prevail here too. Closed, the menu measures 8-1/4" x 14", but when completely opened it engages all three panels offering 48 wines and champagnes. The only fault is a faint shiny light strip just above the picture on the cover as if a long sticker were taken off. There's no residue and the entire menu feels smooth. OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME.

Seller ID: 3306

Condition: Good folder, Very good items inside


Love the black and white Scotties who pose for all things Scotch whiskey.I had one of these bridge tally folders years ago, but without the pencil which this one has. The pencil's cool because it too is marked Black and White along its length. The tally pad has all the pages, but only the first one is toned because it's against the printing inside the folder. The folder tells how to play Bridge and how to score. Folder measures 4" x 7-3/4" and opens up to twice that much. The only faults are a little light foxing to the white vinyl part of the front cover. The back is covered in paper which s... View more info

Fun cover just in time for Mardi Gras! The magazine shows darkening around the edges -- dust stain I think, as I had no luck removing it. There's also a small piece of tape to back cover, the handiwork of a previous owner. The spine had a tear to the bottom, but I stopped it with archival tape which does not brown and is very subtle. The magazine offers fiction from three big names: Edna Ferber (Our Very Best People); Adela Rogers St.Johns (Kitty Shinn's Husband); and W. Somerset Maugham (The Luncheon."
