These little German calendars are exquisitely rendered -- the art is so charming. It's in the GERMAN LANGUAGE, but is so pleasing to the eye that art trumps comprehensiion for non-German speakers. It's a small, very thin book which measures 5-1/2"x7-3/4" and is illustrated with tiny illustrations throughout. The pages aren;t numbered, but I counted 22. View more info

Three tiny pin holes and remnants of two pieces of tape to upper corners are all that mar this original piece of WWII propaganda issued on July 21, 1944 following a radio speech at 1 a.m. that morning proclaiming the peace movement by leading German generals. I was able to find a translation which is the white page included with the photo. The reverse side of the original has a section which translates thus: "What This Means To You -- you know what the German Generals knew for weeks - that Germany has lost the war. The Peace Government may or may not be smashed, but no one can change the basic... View more info

Very interesting WWI magazine published in Cleveland, Ohio in 1915. There's one page of text to reverse side of front cover in German, but the rest is comprised of photographs with both German and English captions. Fifteen pages of military photos including, but not confined to, these: German artillery advancing into the line of fire on horseback, a Bismarck Monument erected by German soldiers in France, Russian prisoners carrying their machine guns, Russian victims of heavy artillery fire, and German ammunition column on the march near Viguelles (France) with a heavily laden vehicle and two ...

Crisp as new postcard which has not been used. We know it's a real tinted photo as it shows the NBC company logo at the space for the postage stamp. Unfortunately, there are no dates available for NBC, so no clues to age. The card has not been used postally, but it does show a message in German on the opposite side of the divided back and the date 11/11/20. The subject is very pretty in evening clothes. Card will arrive in plastic sleeve. View more info

Seller ID: 1494

Condition: Good-plus


An uncommon item, published in tandem with the opening of the dark opera, Alice, which is based on Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The lyrics probe not the story as much as how it pertains to its author. Was not intended for children. Inside front cover (see photo two) is a small drawing signed by its artist. I can't decipher the first namel, but I do believe the last name is Zinn. I immediately thought of David Zinn who does have a history with the Thalia Theatre, but I can't say for sure that this is right. Research shows no account of him having anything to do with the set design for ... View more info

This is a hefty, significant program -- more book than booklet! But the event was so enormous it's worthy of the paper used to print it. Saengerfest was a national song festival which consisted of five concerts held over three days to accommodate the HUGE crowds. Twenty-six trains were charted just to bring in the thousands of PARTICIPANTS. The Cleveland schools also contributed singers. The event was also a commemoration of the centenary of the death of Beethoven. The program measures 7-3/4" x 10-1/4" and is very tightly bound with complete spine strip.

Very interesting how one person got four postcard greetings from four different well-wishers with cards that are variations of the same design -- yet here they are. All four are glossy as per design and very clean and attractive. Two have stamps on the back, but only one was postmarked which is how I found the date. The other two have messages written on the divided back, but no postage. The recipient was Josephine Hughes of Mansfield, Ohio. Each card will arrive in its own brand new plastic sleeve.

What a pretty card this is. The box which contains the birthday greeting is actually a card pasted on the larger one, including the green bow. Inside the oval is inserted a beautiful touch of mother of pearl. The card is also nicely embossed at decorative corners and at the "frame" around the mother of pearl oval. There are two penciled names on the back, but they could be easily erased. Though card is not dated or postmarked, it's likely from the early 1900's due to the fact that it was printed in Germany. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve. View more info

What makes this brochure and map interesting is the pink printing inside the front and back covers announcing the XIth Olympic Games in Berlin, Germany in 1936. Most of these brochures are from 1937, so I was surprised to see it. The 1936 Games were very controversial given the atmosphere in Germany at that time. It's still often referred to as Hitler's Olympics. The brochure measures 4" x 9" and opens to become three times as big as when closed. There are many black and white photographs, plus the usual sort of information for tourists in 32 pages. There is also an exceptionally nice crisp ma... View more info
