Very beautiful exhibition catalog in lovely condition. A soft cover book is wrapped around completely with the treal colored "jacket" which may have had a ribbon tie given the two slots for one, but doesn't require it, as the jacket stays closed without it.The exhibition is an artistic interpretation of the only Biblical hymn to wome -- Aishet Hayil. As such 32 artists were igven a line of the poem of that name to interpret with their art. The collective works are a tribute to one woman -- Julia Kiener Forchheimer (1900-1991) who opened the handweaving department in the Bezalel School of A... View more info

Edition: Vol. LXXXVIII. No. 2

Seller ID: 1533

Condition: Very Good


Very handsome high quality magazine printed on coated paper. Many articles, but I bought it for the one about Andy Warhol and his Silver Elvises. The article is a very long one at 17 pages measuring 9"x11" and illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. The author, David McCarthy, titled the article "Andy Warhol's Silver Elvises; Meaning Though Context at the Ferus Gallery in 1963." Wonderful not only for Elvis and Andy fans, but those who like the movies of the period. Other articles include ancient art, 17th century art, Louis Kahn, and Judaic Threads in West African tapestries.... View more info

Seller ID: 1971

Condition: Good-plus condition


Ephemera from the Excelsior Club, a social venue founded in Cleveland in 1872, is not often seen, but here we have a program from New Year's Eve 1927. The club was much like the Cleveland Union Club, but for upscale Jewish families with a Germanic cultural background. From the beginning help from the Halle family of Halle's department store fame was integral to the club's success. The program shows the scenes of a musical "The Good Old Days" which required members to take to the stage as singers, dancers, musicians, actors and tambourine players. Looks like great fun and is a glimpse at a Cl... View more info

Crisp, beautiful, like new book which commemorated the 75th anniversary of a beloved Cleveland Jewish Country Club which opened its doors in 1905.

Seller ID: 2206

Condition: Very Good condition


This booklet is not seen too often. I got it from a private collection, but it's stamped on the front #13 Collinwood High School Library 1946. This one is not about Cleveland history only insofar as it discusses its residents and their origins. The thrust of the 66 page text is to showcase and provide information on the various ethnic groups, their religions, and the problem of prejudice. What's odd is it left out the Irish who came in droves and settled on the west side. All told though it's a topic not covered too often. Measures 6" x 8-3/4". Only fault is the stamp mentioned above.

This interesting art catalog comes with extra goodies, including a price list for 37 works ranging in cost from $2500 to $100,000, and an envelope from the Bernstein House Foundation of Sugar Land, Texas seeking donations to have a book of the artist's work published. The goal was $100,000. Theresa Bernstein was born in Poland in 1890 and died in NYC in 2002, just two years after this exhibition. She was considered an important Jewish painter, but not all of her works focuses on a Jewish theme. She also had a love of music which also worked its way into her canvases.

I had one of these the first year I became a seller of books and ephemera, but I never saw another one until now -- eighteen years! It's not that it's rare, it's just that somehow I didn't. Anyway, this is a beautiful, expensively designed booklet which originally in 1946 was published to designate the synagogue as a national historic site. It is also the oldest synagogue building in the United States. There are several large photographs and much information in 65 pages. The booklet measures 9-1/4" x 12-1/2". The only fault is some toning to spine area. Otherwise it's pristine inside and out. View more info

This lovely catalog accompanied the exhibition held from September 7 to November 4, 2000 at the Cleveland State University Art Gallery. It's oversized at 9" x 12" with 140 pages including a glossary and a selective bibliography. Every page is on quality coated paper and most photographs are in full color.

I've had this since 1995 when it was new. Several times I took it out with the idea of listing it, but I never did. Now, twelve years later, it's moment has come. The front and back of the cover has writing, black on black, from the preamble to the Charter of the United Nations. Inside there is one sentence penned by Kahlil Gibran from his book Sand and Foam, 1926. The quote is this: "We shall never understand one another until we reduce the language to seven words." And that is how many there are here -- seven -- compassion, pathos, perception, temperance, balance, truth and possibility. Eac... View more info
