Steam Passenger Service Directory: Sixth Annual (Ephemera Laid-in)

By: No author Stated

Price: $35.00

Publisher: New York, Empire State Railway Museum Inc.: 1971

Edition: 1971 Edition

Seller ID: 27759

Condition: Very Good


This is an interesting combination of items, all in one from a previous collector. The 6th Annual Steam Passenger Service Directory of 1971 was stuffed with numerous newspaper stories about trains, primarily from the Toledo, Ohio area during the 70's. These did cause some toning to the reverse side of cover, both front and back, but I have sequestered them now in a plastic bag in which they will arrive. Also accompanying the directory are a brochure, a business card and an unused ticket, all from the Toledo Lake Erie and Western Railway, Inc. The directory measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" an...

French Line S.S. Ile de France "the Rue de la Paix of the Atlantic"

By: No author Stated

Price: $45.00

Publisher: New York, French Line: 1949

Seller ID: 27850

Condition: Good Condition


Tres bien! This French ship booklet is a thing of beauty, not often seen. The booklet is big at 8" tall and 12" wide and shows off its beauty in 18 counted pages. There are black and white photographs galore, but the real eye catchers are the paintings, especially the double spread of the smoking room rendered by Richard Lindner. There's also a spread showing the exterior of the rebuilt ship. The S.S. Ile de France launched originally in 1927, but was turned into a ship for troops in 1941. It wasn't until 1949 that she was launched again, rebuilt and decorated by the finest designers. ... View more info

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Cincinnati, Ohio, St. Therese Little Flower of Jesus Church: 1961

Edition: 1st Edition

Seller ID: 27936

Condition: Fine


April 9, 1961 was the day the new Catholic church building, St. Therese Little Flower of Jesus, was dedicated in Cincinnati, Ohio. The booklet serves as a souvenir and is quite substantial with much history and information about the church from its simple beginning in 1926 to its lovely new location. It also offers many photographs of parishioners and clergy, as well as the nuns who worked at the school. As is the norm, there are also ads which helped finance the book, but some these of these are from the designers and artisans who made it happen. There is also an extensive list of patrons and...

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Florida, Our Lady of Lourdes Church: 1981

Seller ID: 28113

Condition: Very Good


Very nice, clean booklet commemorating the dedication of the new Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Only fault is a flat crease to lower front corner of cover. Oddly, there is no reference to the exact town in Florida where it's located, but there is a photo of the presiding Bishop of Orlando, Thomas J. Grady. This is an exceptional keepsake thanks to the many photographs, including some in full color, plus lots of photos of the parishioners in action. There's also history and a roster of the patrons who helped make the new church possible. As always with these momentos, there are ads at the back of ... View more info

Price: $28.00

Publisher: U.S.A., G.P. Putnam's Sons: 1967

Edition: Presumed First

Seller ID: 28179

Condition: Fine


This is a hard cover, rather large, "diary" made for the well-heeled. I bought it a long time ago and forgot I ever had it! I looked online for one, but came up empty which is strange because it was published by Putnam's, a large publisher. This one has never been used, though I wish it had! As it is, it's pristine inside and out. Actually the term "diary" isn't quite right. It's mostly a calendar in which the millionaire could keep track of his/her many social and business events. There's also information on the very best of anything that could be bought in 1968, including airplanes, body gua... View more info

There is no printed date, but I'm certain that this is a reprint. Even so, there are virtually no copies out there at the time of this writing. .I bought this one years ago and stashed it in the closet where I found it this morning. It's very clean and tightly bound and the pictures are superb -- black and white, but beautifully saturated as a gravure. The catalog is clean and tightly bound and measures 6" x 9-1/4" and has 59 pages including technical drawings at back.Former owner wrote this on the reverse side of the cover --"Robbins & Lawrence Building (Now American Precision Museum) Winds...

The cover of this catalogue is a bit worn at the front cover as you can see with edge wear and small creases along the spine, none of which impinge on the binding. I almost passed it by, but when I saw the clean, bright pages and, best of all, the amazing people working on the season's operas. Open near the beginning and what do you see but Chagall himself painting backdrops! And in the middle there is the diva herself -- Maria Callas in "Norma." So amazing to see such talent in one place. There's much more to read about other operas of the season illustrated with black and white photos. There... View more info

Nice program with comic cover design in purple, orange, white and black. Measures 8"x10-1/2". Only faults are vertical crease down the center from having been folded and a shadow from old price sticker to upper left corner at front. A fun program given the game's quirky history. For years Illinois and Northwestern played for the chance to win an old fire bell. But this year they not only had a new trophy, but a contest to name it. The wooden Indian was dubbed Sweet Sioux and was captured by Northwestern in a 13-7 game. Northwestern proudly displayed it in a case in their Patten Gym, ... View more info

This Cleveland theater program is interesting for a couple reasons -- the back story of the play and the fact that it was in Cleveland as a fundraiser for the Dorcas Invalid Home, a Cleveland charitable center for indigent or poor people suffering from terminal conditions. As for the play, it launched originally in New York City under the title Bibi of the Toy Shop, but was blasted by the critics and forced to close after only a few days. Along came John B. Rogers who bought the rights to it and to its song "Oh You Beautiful Doll." The song of course became a hit (they say it was one o... View more info

The first one of these booklets was published in 1947 with others following over the years. This one, however, is from 1972 and is only number six.

An extravaganza of a souvenir book! Not only is it oversized at 9"x12" and filled with glorious stills from production numbers, but it also has a fold-out at the back which has four perforated postcards. Amazing that they're still intact, but they are. The program is marred only by spots of ege wear to the black cover and a small flat crease to the lower front corner. Very nice and a souvenir of the FIRST stage production ever. View more info
