Liberty Magazine Sept. 8, 1934 (Erle Stanley Gardner)

By: N/A

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, Liberty Publishing Corporation: 1934

Seller ID: 0316

Condition: Good


Magazine isn't perfect, but what a find to see a short story, The Case of the Curious Bride, by Erle Stanley Gardner at the very back. He's not even on the cover! But Gardner's here and the story features one of his most popular characters -- Perry Mason. It's also nicely illustrated in vintage 30's style. The other interesting note is a rebuttal about women's intelligence by the novelist Kathleen Norris. The magazine is clean and tightly bound but shows small chips to bottom edge and a few tiny edge tears to outer side edges which I have repaired with very small pieces of invisible archival t...

By: N/A

Price: $14.95

Publisher: Canton, Ohio, C.C. Dueble: 1903

Seller ID: 0634

Condition: Very Good


Very handsome collectible postcard showing the Canton, Ohio home of President McKinley. The small photo inset at upper right corner shows the image of Mrs. McKinley. The card is actually dated 1903, which is good because it is unused -- no mesages, no postmark. President William McKinley was assasinated in 1901, two years before the card's publication.

Rarely do you see these underground comics from the 1970's, but here we have one and tightly bound and with no names or writing. The area by the spine is rubbed a little and there is some light creasing to cover corners, but the inside pages are pristine. The cover is colorful -- the comic is in black and white. It was put together with the help of the San Francisco National Lawyers Guild in an effort to educate people in the mechanics of the legal system with a radical edge. At the back of the text is an article entitled Our Constitutional Rights by Clayton Van Lydegraf from a statement read... View more info

Were it not for an old price sticker which damaged a small area between the T and Y at the top of the title on front cover, this magazine would be very good.

I acquired these two presidential collectibles together and decided to keep them that way, as they came from the same previous owner. The larger booklet is The McKinley National Memorial and is very handsome with its raised medallion at the front, its deckled page edges, and the two tipped-in photographs-- one of the president and the other of the memorial. This booklet is a soft cover which measures 7"x10" and has eight decorated pages printed on excellent heavy paper. The smaller booklet measures 3-1/2"x6-1/2" and has 16 pages comprised of the speech given by the President in Buffalo, New Y... View more info

Very large magazine measuring 11"x15", published in Paris in the FRENCH Language. The cover photo shows a scene from the United States Republican Convention in Philadelphia that year.

All items in this three piece lot concern the same topic which required the ministrations of the Republican senator from Maine in 1962, Margaret Chase Smith. It began with a request for a pass to the Senate Gallery by a man from Maine who had the endorsement of their mutual friend. Ralph Lovell.

Beautiful cover art featuring the lovely actress, Ann Sheridan. The magazine is not too common and is clean and tightly bound, though it does have a few faults. I repaired the spine at top and bottom and a few tiny edge tears at back with almost invisible archival tape which is holding well. The only ther is a bit of brownign to lower back cover (see photo). Magazien is huge at 10-1/2" x 13-1/2". Story topics include Ann sheridan, FDR and poll tax, windjammers, guerilla doctors of Shensi, and sorcery. View more info

Ken magazine launched on April 7, 1938 via the founders of Esquire, but it lasted just a scant two years with two issues a month. It was political and controversial, so much so that Ernest Hemingway stopped writing for it after 14 issues. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 13-1/2" with 86 pages. This issue has a boxing article by Hemingway titled My Pal The Gorilla Gargantua. The cover story is Austrians In All But Name, a criticsm of the Reich for failing Germans of the South Tyrol.

Did you grow up reading the Beany Malone books? If so, the author, Lenore Mattingly Weber, is in this issue with a short story. Her name jumped right off the cover for me! Other items of interest are an article about the actvities of the Ku Klux Klan, a story by John P. Marquand, and preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh, and of course those elegant fashion plates. The magazine is clean and tightly bound with a small tear to top and bottom of spine, both of which I repaired with almost invisible archival tape.

This popular 19th century newspaper is quite large at 11" across and 16-1/2" tall. It appears to have been bound with other issues at one time, as there is one section at top which remains threaded. The cover depicts the swearing in of Honorable G. Blaine as Secretary of State. Harrison had just won the presidential election, so much ink was used discussing his inaugural address, his cabinet choices,settling in with his family in the White House, the departure of Grover Cleveland, and a picture of celebratory fireworks at the Washington Memorial.

Interview Magazine is a fun read. In addition to lots of close-up looks at famous people from all walks of life, it's also filled with gorgeous ads for high-end products.

Very nice clean program with just two very tiny tears to top edge of front cover.It says on the bottom of that cover that it's a delegate's memo book and as such offers blank pages for notes on one side of the pages and information on the other. This delegate whose name is at the top -- Richard Wysocki -- did not write in it. In this case it would have been even better if he had. Nevertheless, early union material is always a great find. This program measures 4" x 9-1/4". View more info
