Four Photographs, One Drawing, The Shale Brick Company, Columbus, Ohio

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Columbus, Ohio, Unknown origin: Unknown

Seller ID: 0635

Condition: Very good


This is a decidedly mysterious and odd item. It consists of four photographs of the former Shale Brick Company of Columbus, Ohio, plus a drawing of an auger. The drawing shows paper around the edges and old glue stain, so at least it, if not the photos too, had been affixed to something else at one time. Everything is old, but the mounting and labeling on cardstock is quite contemporary. The photos are labeled The Shale Brick Company, Columbus, Ohio 17th Avenue Brick Plant, Mixing Plant, Elevated Tressel (sic) for Cars Conveying Raw Materials to Plant, and Mixing Plant. The drawing is caption... View more info

Scully Jones Selector No. 2; Dimensions for Drawing Morse Tapers

By: N/A

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Chicago, Scully-Jones and Company: Unknown

Seller ID: 0708

Condition: Very good


I am fascinated by these sorts of little measuring devices -- can't let one pass me by. This one is not dated, but it's before zip codes which means it's from before 1963. It was made by Scully-Jones, designers and manufacturers of standard and special production tools, including tap and drill chucks, arbors, cutting tools, boring equipment, centers and more. This device is two sided, so it performs two functions -- providing a Morse taper number and the size of the taper per foot and per inch which is helpful for drawing them. The slide is in great condition and measures 4"x7-1/4" closed and ... View more info

Two Sepia Postcards Castleton Speedwell Mine (1920 England))

By: N/A

Price: $16.00

Publisher: England, F. Frith & co. Ltd.:

Edition: 1920

Seller ID: 1067

Condition: Very good


There's a ghostly quality to these two sepia postcards shot in the Speedwell Mine at Castleton (England), one at the Subterranean Canal and the other at "Halfway House." Both show people underground. Neither was used postally, but a cryptic remark on the back of each indicates that the cards were purchased as souvenirs -- "Visited 26th July 1920." Except for a few tiny spots of edge wear, these are quite clean and crisp. Each will arrive in its own plastic sleeve. View more info

Very clean, nice issue of one of the star magazines of the 30's. The photography is excellent, as are the articles and the magazine's design.

Very handsome advertising product which also provides the customer with a tremendous amount of information about U.S. Steel's alloy steels which were known as Carilloy Steels since its trademark was adopted in 1936. There are many tables showing technical information in addition to text, but the best part is the industrial photography -- many full page blacka nd white photographs shot in the plant. The book has 175 pages and measures 6-1/4"x9". Only real fault is a small stain up against the spine at bottom edge. Very nice. View more info

This is an interesting photograph of two famous entrepreneurs, Ford and Edison.

Publisher: New York, Climax Molybdenum Company: 1966

Seller ID: 1699

Condition: Very good


For some reason I love the word molybdenum, so every time I see it I buy it in whatever form it presents itself. This booklet is particularly nice, both in terms of condition and presentation. The black and white photographs are full page and quite striking. The booklet measures 8"x10" and is printed on quality coated paper throughout. Of course company advertising was a major reason for publication, but there was also a greater reason affecting the entire industry. Prior to 1966 a percentage of molybdenum sales could not be fulfilled, so now that things had changed it was time to spread the n... View more info

Condition: Good-plus


This is an amazing little book published after the death of C.W. Post, the founder of the Postum Cereal Company which produced Grape Nuts and Post Toasties as well as the coffee substitute, Postum. From 1905 until his death in 1914 C.W. sued, was sued, and gained a reputation as a charlatan who worked overtime making bogus health claims against caffeine. He also came up with what was called a mysterious slogan for his breakfast beverage "There's a reason ...", thus the title of the book. Great pictures abound in here -- the ones at the front in color show such things at Post's private office. ... View more info
