An important and fascinating bit of history, Diana Princess of Wales: The Book of Fashion is full of color photographs of the princess, Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth, and the royal family and friends by some of the world's most famous photographers. One of the more interesting things about the book isn't even the myriad photographs but rather "Diana's Fashion Diary" in the rear of the book, a day by day account from February 25, 1981 through October 6, 1983 of what Diana did, where she went, and a description of what she wore to each event. Each photograph also includes descriptive text about the occasion being photographed and a fashion description of Diana's outfit that designers and memorabilia collectors alike will cherish. Published in 1983 by Colour Library Books Ltd. of Surrey, England, it has accompanying text by Jane Owen and was produced by Ted Smart and David Gibbon and measures approximately 11.75" x 9.5". The book is retains its original paper cover and is in excellent condition.        $28.00
R001 It's a little tattered around the top and left edges, but this rare 1905 copy of Little Red Papoose is destined for a fine frame. From a time when Native American culture was depicted in a different manner than today, the cover art here signed Frew is a piece of history with the ornamental papoose leaning against the tree with the river and grove of trees in the background. The song is by Benjamin Hapgood Burt and was from the Broadway production of The Girl and The Bandit Co. and sung by George McFarlane. Originally costing 50 cents which was a lot of money at the time, the piece measures approximately 14.0" x 11.0" and is in good condition with some edge tears most severe on the left edge and top left corner and otherwise looking pretty good for 100 years old.       $22.00
R002 Give a gift to the one you love that will both surprise her and express your love in a unique way with these two vintage sheet music love songs "I Can Never Find Another Girl Like You" and "Close To My Heart." The first has words by Arthur Richards and music by Paul von Moltke, published in 1904 by Joseph Kaiser Music Publishing of New York and measuring approximately 13.5" x 10.75". This very early piece has several edge tears with 2 or 3 being greater than 1.0", not really seen when mounted in a frame as this piece is destined to be. Close To My Heart has words by Andrew Sterling and music by the well known Harry von Tilzer who was also the publisher of this 13.5" x 10.5" piece published in 1915. Close To My Heart is in very good condition. Both were signed by the original owner from whose estate they come.       $28.00/pr

R009 Outstanding graphics with vivid colors set this vintage 1912 sheet music When I Get You Alone Tonight apart from the pack and ready for a frame. The song, with words by Joe McCarthy and Joe Goodwin and music by well known music publisher Fred Fischer, is a tale of love with a whimsical twist that reflects the morales and tastes of the times. We love the front cover colors of orange and blue, rather less seen than other colors in turn of the century sheet music. The back cover features another song excerpt, Don't Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve, which star Lottie Gilson said "is my greatest first-night ballad success." The 14" x 11" sheet music was published in 1912 by Leo Feist in New York and is in good condition aside from some minor edge tears less than 0.5" and some minor spine separation but still completely intact. This would be great as a gift for a loved one presented in a nice frame, and it's bargain priced from the NY estate of a musician who worked on the Broadway stage.  /16 SOLD

Remick & Co. in 1906 and is an early use of color and inset photography, in this case of Maude Earl, on the cover. It's got a great stylized look with the fruit tree silhouetted against the night sky, and the photo contrasted with the caricature on the right. The piece has words by Harry Williams and music by Egbert Van Alstyne, and it's in very good condition with minor 0.75" spine separation at the bottom and one 0.5" edge tear on the right.  $14.00

R013 A great gift for any sheet music collector or Rose in your life, "My Beautiful Rose" was written by Jack Whitt with music by Jack Smith. It's got a great color litho of a beautiful woman's face emerging from a rose flower on the front cover, one of the most clever and sentimental sheet music covers from this period we've seen in several years. the inset photo is of "Mr. Chick"- no, don't ask us as we don't have a clue. Published in 1912 by Joseph M. Daly Music Publishers of Boston, MA, the 13.75" x 10.75" piece is in very good condition with very minor spine separation and minimal age wear to the interior pages, none of which will make a difference since this piece is destined for a fine frame.

Rare 1844 2 volume (in one book) copy of well known early etiquette book Conseils A Ma Fille (Advice To My Daughter) by J.-N.

If you're a cheese lover or know someone who is, you'll certainly enjoy Fugue Au Pays De Gruyere with some wonderful illustrations and photographs of the Gruyere countryside. The book is fascinating in that all the text is in 3 languages- French, German, and English!

We get lots of request for vintage airplane and aerospace books and memorabilia, so we were quite happy when this book The Flier's World by James Gilbert came to us as part of a major Los Angeles, CA estate consignment. Filled with information as well as color and black & white photographs, any airplane afficianado or collector is going to love this very hard to find 1976 first edition. The book covers the history of aviation including private aviation, military aviation, and commercial aviation.

Author James Gilbert has flown more than 100 kinds of aircraft and is well known for books and articles on flying in the U.S. and Europe.
