The Greater Jell-O Recipe Book; Try the New Jell-O; Jell-O Brings Dozens of Answers (three booklets 1926, 1931, 1932)

By: N/A

Price: $16.00

Publisher: General Foods: 1926, 1931, 1932

Seller ID: 0434

Condition: Very good


Three handsome booklets with recipes for America's one-time favorite quick dessert. All are clean and tightly bound with handsome graphics, all of which have the same artistic "flavor" despite the passage of years, as booklets span 1926 to 1932. I was surprised to note that the oldest of the three introduces the NEW Jello which didn't call for boiling water. 42 recipes there, but one wonders, as the Jello we all grew up with DID require boiling water. The second booklet... View more info

Publisher: New York, Gourmet Inc.: 1962

Seller ID: 0586

Condition: Very Good


I bought these from a cookbook collector who kept them clean and beautiful for many decades. Gourmet was definitely a top tier publication for those interested in creative dining. It's interesting to see how even gourmet food has changed while some classics live on. Among the writers is Lucius Beebe. I remember selling Beebe's railroad titles back when I first became a bookseller and was amazed to find that he's also Lucius Beebe the foodie. Both magazines have great col... View more info

Publisher: Paris, Realites Monthly Magazine: 1974

Edition: Number 279

Seller ID: 0659

Condition: Very Good


I love this magazine -- always so ahead of the times with stunning photography and grat articles on travel and the arts. The editors chose to showcase the wonders of Hong Kong by featuring in on the cover, but what caught my eye were articles on the French painter Chaim Soutine and a food article by Waverley Root (author of the classic Food by Waverley Root and The Food of France). Here he takes on the apple, the forbidden fruit. Realite is a top drawer magazine -- very ... View more info

Seven issues of Family Circle magazine which was much thinner in the old days than now but also a weekly rather than a monthly. They're not consecutive, but all are from January, February and March, 1938. The dates are Jan. 14, Jan. 21, Feb. 11, Feb 18,Feb. 25, March 4, and March 11. Articles could be about anything, but here's some noteworthy examples: William Powell and Loretta Young, a huge New York City emporium of both collectibles and junk called Bob's Swap and Sho...

Price: $6.95

Publisher: Longman, Green & Co.: 1936

Seller ID: 0758

Condition: Very Good


If ever a cover screamed 1930'as this one has to be it -- what a strong graphic, both front and back! The booklet was offered in bookstores by Longman, Green who published books by the Mystery Chef -- who, incidentally, lived quite well given the photo at the back of the booklet of his New York living room! But that's a disgression -- the booklet also proved to be, as this one was, an advertising vehicle for the local gas company. It measures 5"x8" and has 96 pristine pa... View more info

Publisher: Canton, Ohio, The Canton Magazine Company: 1918

Edition: Volume XIII No.7

Seller ID: 0831

Condition: Good-plus


For those from Canton, Ohio, where the magazine originated, this is a nice local collectible in addition to being a less common woman's magazine of 1913. As you can see from the cover art by Olga T Heese, a magazine art is of the day, WWI is raging. Not only does the art serve as a reminder, but so do the contents. There's an article about helping the servicemen and even a page showing a half dozen "servantless" houses small enough to care for by oneself in hard times. G... View more info

Seller ID: 0886

Condition: Very good


This one's not at all rare because it was too cute not to keep! It still charms collectors though and has even inspired modern look-alikes in the forms of magnets. This guy's the real deal though! He measures 2-1/2" across at the widest point, which is his feet, and 6" from the top of crown to the bottom of his feet. "King Pig" sits up and begs to be part of the "Rex Brand" line of meats packed by the Cudahy Company. Both front and back sides of the card are identical. I... View more info

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Ladies of the Church of Christ: Unknown

Seller ID: 0906

Condition: Good


Very clean and tightly bound cookbook published to raise money for the church's building fund. There is no date for it, so I tried to do a little sleuthing, but the only church with that precise name was building in the 1960's and this booklet precedes that by decades. I then tried looking up the businesses which supplied ads, but again, not much luck. The only company that appeared was the C.H. Yeager Company which came to Akron in 1906 and changed its name to Yeager Co... View more info

Very handsome 1939 menu for passengers on the Canadian National Railway September 6, 1939. This was a banner year for Canada with the arrival of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth who in May of '39 took a Royal Tour of the country stopping at both small towns and large cities to the delight of fervent crowds. To celebrate the Royal Tour the two Canadian railways -- the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific --each worked hard to outdo the other in providing half t... View more info

I love the old advertising fans, especially the ones that fold out like this one does. If you're from Pittsburgh you probably recognize the Tip-Top brand. Love the tranquil water scene which emerges as you manipulate the three pieces. The back of the fan offers suggestions for summer taste sensations using Tip-Top. There was also a name printed on it (Richard) at one time, but there was an attempt to remove it at some point. Other than that this one is in great conditio... View more info

Price: $12.00

Publisher: Unknown: 1906

Seller ID: 1141

Condition: Very Good


This is a lovely print which captures a sweet moment of children enjoying the treats brought by an old lady. It was 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 Whi...

The cover is so striking on this one, but that's not the only color image this almanac has. There is color at the back cover too, but the show stealers are the gorgeous color ads on reverse of both front and back covers. Both are by Rawleigh, but the one at the front features personal hygiene products and one at the back is all about medicines. The almanac measures 6-1/2"x9-1/2" and has 64 pages. Much nicer than the average almanac of the day too! Every page is illustra... View more info

I have a soft spot for cookbooks printed by organizations to raise money. They range from Junior League sophistication to plain and to the point. I don't buy many of them because they take up a lot of space. But I fell for this one because I've never seen it. I assume it is trying to raise funds for the National Shrine in Washington D.C., the largest Roman Catholic shrine in the country. The group behind it appears to be from Canton, Ohio. The book is clean and nice wit... View more info

Edition: Volume XI, No. 3

Seller ID: 1384

Condition: Good


There is a bit damage to this one, but I bought it anyway because the article about Japanese silk is fantastic! I'll get to that soon, but first you need to know that the upper corner of the last couple pages and the back cover corner were all creased up. I have been able to smooth it all out (see photos)-- we're talking just a couple pages at the back. One required archival tape before the corner fell off and one has a small loss of a corner. The cover just shows severa... View more info

This is a scarce movable WWII advertising item in excellent condition.

For Army ribbons you pull the card up and for Navy you pull it down. The card measures 4"x6-1/2" and is in great working condition. View more info

This one has been so carefully preserved it looks almost brand new. No defect of note. Those of a certain age who are from Akron (like me!) remember well the Sealtest brand.

The booklet measures 6" x 7-1/2" and has 96 pages of recipes from the Sealtest Kitchens. It's illustrated in throguhout with both color and black and white photographs. Interesting how foo...

This is a cute little booklet designed to attract children, but also contains info for grown-ups to buy Wright's Condensed Smoke and Wright's Ham Pickle. The latter was huge -- 27 lbs of pickling salt which would cure as much as 280 pounds of meat! The booklet derived from the home office and was sent to smaller companies to send to their customers. In this instance it was stamped on the back F.H. Nickerson, Druggist, Greenwich, Ohio. The booklet is clean and nice with ... View more info

The Modern Priscilla has the best covers -- this one is very gallant as the little boy hangs on to his passenger who dropped her knitting in the lake. The magazine is very clean nd nice, but it does have a snip off the lower front corner as well as on the next page. There's also a flat crease to front cover. You can feel it better than see it. This is big magazine measuring 10-1/2" x 14" with 44 pages. There's ideas and patterns for both practical and fancy sewing projec... View more info

The Jacob Wirth German Restaurant opened its doors in Boston in 1949. This booklet was published in 1964 as a tribute. A seidel is a lidded tankard of beer, so this is a toast to good food and good times raised by a list of people who loved it. In addition to the restaurant the Jacob Wirth Company was also a wholesaler of Rhine wine and domestic and imported beers.
