Seller ID: 0122

Condition: Very good


This is a cool thing, whether you are an alum yourself or are looking for an ancestor who was a member. Looks like this was quite a bash, as brothers descended on the Hotel Hollendan for a five day gala -- December 27th to the 31st. It's interesting to note that Zeta Beta Tau was the first Jewish fraternity in the U.S.. It's not sectarian anymore, but it still was at the time of this event. The brochure measures 5-1/2"x8" and pulls out to reveal five printed page on the ... View more info

What a beautiful souvenir of the 47th Annual United Federation of Doll Clubs held August 4-9, 1996 in Dallas, Texas. The box itself is so pretty -- opens at the side to reveal a soft cover book entitled Beautiful Children which fits perfectly inside and was printed especially for the purpose. The book contains lovely illustrations in both color and black and white which, along with the text, celebrate children everywhere. Also included is a small card which explains the... View more info

Edition: Revised edition, 4th printing

Seller ID: 0514

Condition: Very good


Old Scout manuals are fun to find, especially an older one like this for the Camp Fire Girls. My mother was a Camp Fire Girl and totally loved it, unlike me who was a reluctant Girl Scout and then a drop-out. The book is wonderful -- clean and bright and still containing its errata sheet. In addition to small drawings throughout there are many full page black and white photographs. The book is a handy size to carry at 4-1/2"x6-3/4" with 223 pages. Tesxt covers how to get...

The English-Speaking Union Dartmouth House London 1926 Brochure

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: London, The English-Speaking Union: 1926

Seller ID: 0677


Booklet has its faults, but is not commonly seen and is tightly bound and complete. The English-Speaking Union began in London in 1918, thanks to the efforts of journalist, Sir Evelyn Wrench. The goal, as stated on the top front banner of the brochure is "To draw together in the bond of comradeship the English-speaking peoples of the world." The organization continues today, both in the U.S. and Britain as an educational charity. In 1918 there were 774 members, but by th... View more info

Seller ID: 0768

Condition: Very good


Very nice booklet oversized at 8"x10-1/2" Though clearly an advertising vehicle for the Copper and Brass Research Association, the contents are most impressive -- NOT a "fluff piece." It's illustrated throughout with both photographs and drawings with the emphasis on the use of brass and copper as an investment for the future -- copper roofs, copper leaders and gutters, brass plumbing, and copper, brass or bronze hardware.

Seller ID: 0912

Condition: Good


Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela. Clearly, this was a big event, as the ads in the program are largely national -- Chrysler has the back cover and Helena Rubenstein cosmetics has the flip side. Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Ve... View more info

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 1194

Condition: Very good


Just got this from a collector who loved farm related ephemera. It's fairly hard to find, but interesting not only for its farm content, which mostly consists of the make-up of the bureau in various Portage Co. towns, but for its local names and accompanying advertising. Booklet measures 6"x9" and has 44 pages. Covers the following towns: Atwater, Aurora, Brimfield, Charlestown, Deerfield, Edinburg, Mantua, Palmyra, Paris, Randolph, Ravenna, Rootstown, Shalersville, Stre... View more info

Edition: Vol. LXXIX, No.7

Seller ID: 1319

Condition: Good-plus


Magazine has been cleaned by me and a short area at top of spine has been repaired, also by me, with almost invisible archival tape to keep it from worsening. There is still some soil to cover, but overall this is a nice, tightly bound piece. It's a large one too measuring 9"x12". The big story to me was the launch of the first muzzleloading shooting matches at Portsmouth, Ohio, an event which also launched the rebirth of shooting black powder firearms as a sport. Other ...

Booklet is oversized at 9"x12". As you can see, the front cover, which is very colorful, shows irregular toning and a small damp stain to lower corner of spine area.

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 t... View more info

Once in awhile hard cover books are ephemeral, easily disposed as one annual replaces another year after year. Here we have what four so crisp and clean it's questionable if they were even read. If lilies are your thing, these are a delight, as each volume is filled with articles and information useful to the grower. Each is illustrated with black and white photos and covers a wide array of topics. Here's some highlighta: 1978 -- China's lilies; miniature lilies; our ... View more info

This photo is very nice, but I initially thought because the date was apropos to WWI the uniform was military. I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to track it down, but I could only find some of the elements, not all. It wasn't until I remembered the plumed hats on the Knights of Columbus from when I was a kid that I made an easy match. The picture has a stamped logo at the bottom which comes down to meet the lower half of it on the backing. Under it someone pe... View more info

If you're a calendar collector, or someone who appreciates the beauty of vintage advertising art this one's special. The calendar is not that old at 24, but there aren't many available. It's a big one measuring 12" x 18" and begins with January 1981 and ends with December 1981. All art is in full color and even the calendar itself is colorful. All images are replicas of old posters.

These little magazines are great fun to read whether you believe in dowsing, or you don't. They're all clean and tightly bound and there are no labels. One issue shows foxing to the first two pages (see last photo) caused by a catalog of books available in the Dowser Society Bookshop. The catalog almost makes it worth the defect -- no, I think it actually does! :-) The magazines measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and have around 47 pages each. Here's asample of topics: the use of ...
