Publisher: Paris,

Seller ID: 20585

Condition: Near Fine in Fine Box


Lovely, postally unused collection of 20 vintage postcards in their original green box which is bordered in gilt with black printing to face only. There is no date, but they appear to be from the 1930's. We also believe this to be true because they were purchased as part of a larger collection amassed by a relative of the former's owner's during the early 1930's while touring France. Many items had dates from the early 30's. All cards and box are very good with no errant marks and nice crisp clean corners and paper. Each scene is tinted a very handsome green to match the attractive original bo... View more info

A charming graphic and a map so crisp that I felt like the first person to open it!

It's printed on coated paper and has photographs in black and white with the crisp map at back. Unpaginated, but I counted 25. View more info

Publisher: New York, D. Appleton & Co.: 1851

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 26073

Condition: Very Good


Book is quite nice save a darker area to the brown embossed cloth at left side of front cover only and wear to tips of top corners. Gilt is still intact on spine and book is very tightly bound with no cracking to hinges, either front or back. Pages are very clean with no foxing. The only fault internally is scant evidence of the front free endpaper having been torn out, but the next blank page is of the same paper, so it's not terribly noticable. The author was a newspaperman who wrote dispatches from all over the world beginning with England and then off to Cairo and Thebes, Mt. Sanai, Arabi... View more info

Edition: Vol. XVII, No. 3

Seller ID: 25431

Condition: Near Fine


Gorgeous art on the cover, but not surprising because cover art was this travel magazine's strong point. NOTE -- the box with the date and price at the upper left corner is not a sticker -- it was printed right on the page. This is an over-sized magazine which measures 10"x12-1/2" and is printed on heavy, coated, high quality paper. Photographs were in black and white, likely because of the Depression, but there ARE a couple color ads -- one for trips to Bermuda and the other for Texaco Ethyl Gasoline. Topics cover Turkestan; migrating birds and banding birds; climbing the Canadian Rockies'; A... View more info
