Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908

By: N/A

Price: $16.95

Publisher: Unknown: 1909

Seller ID: 0139

Condition: Very good


This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been. View more info

A lovely pair of postcards show the Casino in Monaco from two views. The edifice straight on is so beautiful with the enormous trees standing tall. The second vision is one of people enjoying the view of the town below from the chairs by the lanterns, reading the newspaper, and walking along the wide avenue. Neither card has been used. Both cards are also clean and attractive with a perforated left edge on both cards. There is no date, unfortunately, but I think it's circa 1920's. I looked through a magnifying glass at the woman walking toward the camera. Her clothes are pure 20's.Card will ... View more info

German postcards of the early 19th century are a thing of beauty, many such as this one, show heavily embossed and colorful designs. This Thanksgiving card is beautifully preserved -- the paper is even crisp -- and will arrive in a plastic sleeve.

Eight Coffee Trade Cards (Lion, Arbuckle, Gold Medal, Dilworth's)

By: N/A

Price: $16.00

Seller ID: 0002

Condition: Good


Here we have eight trade cards, none dated, but likely turn-of-the-century. Three are from Lion, two from Arbuckle's,two from Gold Medal and the smallest one from Dilworth's. None have been pasted into an album, though the backs of all have toned from cuddling up too close to other high acidic paper items. There's a small margin stain to one, darkening to upper corner of one and toning to lower corner of another. Overall they are quite still nice. The lagest measures 3-1/4"x5-1/4" and the smallest(from Dilworth's) a petite 2-1/2"x3" View more info

Seller ID: 1333

Condition: Good


Depicted in this photo is the second court house in Akron, Ohio. It was completed in 1908 and there on the steps are the first jury in the new building. The card is postmarked January 25, 1909 and was sent to Edna Stocksdale of Dundee, Ohio. The message appears to have been partially erased and is virtually unreadable. Card also shows some smudges at back, but the main problem is a horizontal crease to entire card. The good news is it's in no danger of snapping off and is not hugely noticeable. This is an uncoomin card and I have placed it in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Condition: Very Good


An oversized bound collection of Parke Davis medical ads from the late 1920s. There is no date, but the title page says, "Recent advertisements in a series which has been appearing in national magazines since 1928." It measures 11-1/4"x14-3/4" and is very clean with no names or writing. The ads are pristine. The outer cover was designed with an overhang which, as usual, created small edge tears. Most are not a problem, but a few snaggy one were repaired on the reverse side by me with tiny pieces of archival tape. There are 15 ads in all, each with a message such as the danger of children playi... View more info

Publisher: Brooklyn, New York, Nestle's Milk Products:

Seller ID: 0014

Condition: Good


Scarce premium booklet for Lion Brand Condensed and Evaporated Milks. There is curiously no date on this, but it appears to be from the 1920's. Research shows that the premium program was in effect as early as 1915 and was suspended in May of 1943 and all premium stores were closed due to war shortages. The book measures 4" across by 10" tall and has 26 pages of gifts to choose from including toys, household goods, jewelry, sports equipment etc. But the most interesting part is of interest to those who collect Girl Scout and Boys Scout ephemera. The book shows a page each for this with multipl... View more info

Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia remains in operation and is still known for its over-the-top Christmas light display. But here we have a trio of items from 1934 when Oglebay was a baby. The newsletter has an unfortunate stain in the lower front corner which, oddly, is not on the reverse, but otherwise is clean and without further difficulty. The two guides -- A Handbook of Nature Study Activities at Oglebay Park and The 1934 Guide to the Activities of Oglebay Institute at Oglebay Park are pristine except for a few rust line to back spine from staples on the nature one.

I bought these from a cookbook collector who kept them clean and beautiful for many decades. Gourmet was definitely a top tier publication for those interested in creative dining. It's interesting to see how even gourmet food has changed while some classics live on. Among the writers is Lucius Beebe. I remember selling Beebe's railroad titles back when I first became a bookseller and was amazed to find that he's also Lucius Beebe the foodie. Both magazines have great color ads and articles covering pre-summer suppers(you have to SEE the picture with this one to believe it!), dandelion wine,a w... View more info

Very pretty cover and two more paintings inside. The book has not been used and is very nice in its original white box. The book is without defect and the box nearly so.

The binding is that of a ring binder that we used to take to school. The book has spaces for name, date and place of birth, age, and date of death. There's also room for photos, funeral notes, the names of officiants, music, the rituals at... View more info

This card is so pretty and one I have never seen before. The dress is low-cut, but there is a demure quality to this pretty girl as she leans against the fountain and trails a branch in the water. The front says simply "Sincere Wishes." Very nice condition, perhaps because it never went through the mail. Will arrive in protective plastic sleeve. The divided back shows that it was given to Sophie on May 1 -- May Day! -- 1911 "with best wishes from your friend." One wonders ... View more info
