the estate of a British gentleman living in Rye, NY, this linen
work is a map of Yorkshire, England, "The County of Broadacres 6077
sq. miles, 3,890,000 acres". The 3 areas of West Riding, North Riding,
and East Riding (inventive, isn't it...) comprise Yorkshire, and
woven into the work is a helpful note that Riding is "derived from
the Scandinavian Thrithing or Thriding- A Third Part." in addition
to the map, there are colorful depictions of the seal of the city
of York, Fountains Abbey, Mother Shipton's Inn, Headingley Cricket
Ground in Leeds, Templenewsam House, and York Minster. Along the
North Sea, it marks the spot where "Captain Cook Set Out From Whitby".
It measures approximately 29.0" x 20.5" and is in excellent condition.

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

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!

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. The music is quite classic, composed and conducted by Maurice
Jarre and generally accepted as one of the best film soundtracks
of all time. In addition to all the interior photographs from the
movie, the text also describes the Dr. Zhivago story, information
about the Director David Lean, the stars of the movie including
Geraldine Chapman, Julie Christie, Alec Guiness, Omar Sharif, Rod
Steiger, and others, and the 1957 book by Boris Pasternak. The record
and jacket are in very good condition, direct to you via a Los Angeles,
CA estate collection of vintage movie memorabilia from the early
to mid 20th century; cross listed on Records 3.
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.

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!

Marshal Brings Law to the West by Albert Micale has 425 pages and

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
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

sale! Part of a major Atlanta, GA estate consignment of finer militaria

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
