If you enjoy reading about and collecting memorabilia and news magazines of the early days of the John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson administrations, you'll enjoy Dean Rusk featured in these February 6, 1961 Newsweek and December 6, 1963 Time magazines. As U.S. secretary of state from 1961 to 1969, Dean Rusk was one of America's major Vietnam War policy makers. Rusk supported U.S. military involvement in Vietnam because he viewed the conflict as an important test of America's determination to contain communism around the world. As the war's popularity diminished during the LBJ administration, Rusk's steady defense of U.S. actions in Vietnam made him a controversial figure. The Newsweek documents "the new President's breathtaking first week with super text and photographs that really capture the energy of the Kennedy administration. The special report is all about Dean Rusk, the Kennedy Secretary of State, and those that worked for him in the administration. The Time magazine was published soon after Jack Kennedy was assassinated and has funeral pictures, and it details the early days of the LBJ adminstration and again features Dean Rusk. Both magazines are in very good condition given the age, with only a tiny 1.0" tear on the very back page of the Newsweek. Both magazines are also filled with some of the best vintage advertising we've seen in a long time, with ads for the Gas pavillion at the Disneyland World of Tomorrow, ads for B.F. Goodrich and Boeing that feature their links to the U.S. space program soon to put a man on the moon, and a hard to find ad for the Studebaker Avanti sports car. $22.00/ 2 magazines

If you're like a lot of collectors and fans, you'll love this whimsical wooden ship SS America telephone that's a sure conversation piece and a great gift for any sailor, nautical fan, or telephone collector in your life. We really like the streamlined look of the ship, and when you lift the phone receiver out of the cradle it reveals the cabin of the boat sunken within for a great look. Out of an Augusta, GA estate, we nabbed this fun home accessory which measures approximately 12.5" long, 4.0" wide, and 4.5" high with the receiver on. It's in good condition with some nicks in the wood from use here and there and some minimal paint loss from the blue pinstripe on the side. The phone itself is a Telemania phone and appears to have been custom designed to fit the ship form; there are plugs for 2 phone lines underneath. Fun & whimsical! Cross listed on 50s & 60s 3. $38.00

MB053 Original Stereo soundtrack album of the famous film Dr. Zhivago is very hard to find and features some great photographs from the movie. MGM released the David Lean film of Boris Pasternak's Dr. Zhivago in 1965, produced by Carlo Ponti, and it won the Academy Award that year.

Set of 3 vintage pencil sharpeners all carry a flight and aviation theme and feature the space shuttle, the B2 stealth bomber, and an early propeller plane whose propeller even turns. The 2 vintage metal pencil sharpeners (the plane and the B2) are heavy and substantial with great detail, dating to c 1960s when sharpening pencils was a key part of everyday school life. The sharpeners themselves are nicely hidden in these hard to find vintage selections. The space shuttle is a more recent sharpener likely dating to the early days of the shuttle program and is rendered in a heavy plastic instead of the metal of the other 2. It's very hard to find commemorative and vintage metal pencil sharpeners any more, for they have substantive collector interest and they look great to both display and use. The 2 airplanes measure approximately 4.0" long and 2.25" high while the space shuttle pencil sharpener stands approximately 4.5" high. The space shuttle and B2 bomber sharpeners come with the original box. All 3 are in very good condition, part of a major El Paso, Texas estate consignment. $32.00/ set of 3
MB055 Don't miss this story from the days of the U S Marshals and the wild west, from a major collection of Whitman Big and Better Little Books! This very hard to find Better Little Book of Lightning Jim U. S. Marshal Brings Law to the West by Albert Micale has 425 pages and was copyrighted in 1940. The book was published by the Whitman Publishing Company of Racine, Wisconsin and measures 4.5" x 3.5". It is illustrated throughout with fabulous comic book style illustrations matching the story on almost every other page and feature inscriptions telling the story. Lightning Jim is in good condition with edges and spine showing normal moderate scuffing but completely intact and modest age- toning. While the book is tight, it is fragile as are most all of the Whitman Big and Better Little Books of this age. All listings from this major estate consignment are very hard to find and priced well below individual book prices from rare book dealers. Great as a gift!  /35 SOLD
MB056 Rare 1909 copy of Flying Artillery sheet music, a "grand military march two step" written by Geo.Heiser-English. Of course, it's the great cover art that collectors prize with this piece, the caissons and cannon rolling in the background along with the American flag plus the galloping soldier on horseback, sword raised, in the foreground. Published in 1905 by The Buffalo Music Co., this 13.75" x 10.5" piece is in very good condition and very nearly pristine, and it was signed and dated in the upper right corner in pencil by the original owner "Jessie F. Ervine Jan 09". Great as a surprise gift for any veteran or militaria collector and priced for quick sale!

MB057 Rare period 1964 John F. Kennedy Memorial Album magazine was issued shortly after JFK's death to capture "his life, his words, his deeds" and with detailed coverage and photographs of "his life with Jackie, his world as a father, and his last day on earth." The memorial album is filled with text and photos documenting John F. Kennedy, his family, his Presidency, his personal interests, and his death in Dallas. Individual sections include Jacqueline Kennedy ("for one brief shining moment there was Camelot"), The Making of a President, Three Crises (Berlin, Cuba, and James Meredith at Ole Miss), Family Life, and The Funeral. There are some rarely published pictures of JFK, his children, family life, boyhood, and some intimate looks at his Presidency and cabinet. This 80 page collectors edition magazine was edited by Al Silverman and published by Macfadden-Barteli of New York City in 1964, and the magazine is in very good condition with only some very minor fraying at the bottom spine. This is probably the single most comprehensive collector memorial album issued to commemorate JFK after the assassination and for good reason- hundreds of photos and related text and a period issue- and would be a memorable gift for anyone who loves JFK and the Kennedys. Not a reproduction. /24 SOLD
