By: N/A

Price: $14.95

Publisher: Yoek, Pennsylvania, York Corporation: 1943

Seller ID: 0842

Condition: Very good


A little age toning to the cover is the only fault of this program published to commemorate the York Corporation (refrigeration and air conditioning) as recipient of the Army-Navy Production Award conferred on November 23, 1943. The first page indicates that the award is for high achievement in the production of war material. I have several times had programs for the Navy "E" Award, but this one surpasses it because it denotes production for both branches of service and is NOT a permanent award. Companies had to continue maintaining a level production level to be allowed to fly the "E" flag f... View more info

Publisher: Pittsburgh, PA, Tip-Top Bread: 1950

Seller ID: 1122

Condition: Very good


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 condition. Closed it measures 5" at the widest point and 7-1/4" tall. Open the fan measures 11" at the widest point. Clean and operat... View more info

Oversized booklet which appears to have been produced for travelers. There's a great two-page map, lots of historical black and white photographs, and many short articles of interest. It's actually more like a magazine than a booklet and measures 8-3/4"x11-3/4" and has 49 pages. The first article, Highways of Prosperity, was written by John S. Fisher, the then governor of Pennsylvania. Other topics include safety, beauty, bridges, Western Pa. scenery, the Couderspot Pike, the sylvan glades of Pa., military value of highways, historic Cumberland Valley and much more.

Publisher: Pittsburgh, PA, United States Steel: 1953

Seller ID: 1357

Condition: Very good


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

Clean tightly bound centenary celebration keepsake. Brown wraps feel very supple and are marred only by small tears to the yapped edges which is very common due to the fact that the edges extend beyond the text. Corners also show flat creasing, but have been strengthened by me at back with mending tissue to keep them from snapping off (see photo). There are no names or writing. Printed on quality coated paper and illustrated profusely throughout with black and white photographs. Also includes an extensive text. Not commonly found. Measures 8"x11" and has 192 pages. Local ads at back. View more info

Publisher: Reading, Pennsylvania, No Authors or Editor Named: 1892

Edition: Vol.II, No. 6

Seller ID: 2424

Condition: Good condition


This was a small independent publication, issues of which are very hard to find. I've had it a long time, but it just surfaced today in one of my storage closets. There are short articles about arranging a programme; the death of Francesco Lamperti, the Italian singer; ease in violin playing; and others. But I do think the ads are what steal the show! Magazine is clean and tightly bound, but does show some toning to the back cover (see photo) and a flat vertical crease, likely from having been in a mailbox. I have ironed it flat and put it in the bookpress. Magazine measures 7" x 10" and has 1... View more info

I haven't seen these quirky little magazines since I first started in business 19 years ago. So I'm pretty tickled to find them again. Houghton just celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. To celebrate they printed a special issue of the popular magazine which was closed down in 2008. These 13 I have now are nice and clean, all identical in format and design -- just different accent colors. They're small in size measuring just 4"x7" and are billed as a publication "for people who like to do their own thinking." Topics range from products made by the company and other interesting things that... View more info
