listing for Tarzan or Li'l Abner collectors from a major collection
of Whitman Big and Better Little Books! Take your pick of rare original
first edition Better Little Books of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar
by Edgar Rice Burroughs (425 pages, copyright 1940) and Li'l Abner
Among the Millionaires by Al Capp (425 pages, copyright 1939). Both
books were published by the Whitman Publishing Company of Racine,
Wisconsin and measure 4.5" x 3.5". Both books are illustrated
throughout with fabulous comic book style illustrations matching
the story on almost every other page and feature inscriptions telling
the story. The books are both in good condition with edges and spine
showing normal moderate scuffing but completely intact and modest
age- toning. The Tarzan book has a hand written inscription inside
the cover "To Ray From Bob White, Christmas 1940", and
it has one edge tear less than 0.25" on the title page. While
the books are tight, they are fragile as are most all of the Whitman
Big and Better Little Books of this age. All books from this major
estate consignment are very hard to find and priced well below individual
book prices at rare book dealers.
Mother's Last Request would make a great gift for that favorite
mother in your life, published by Mozart Music of New York City
in 1907. The song was written by Arthur H. Devoe, and the period
photo of mom in her flowing ornate dress framed in the center looks
terrific in the trade. The urns and scrollwork that surround the
oval photo make a nice complement signed Welp, and it's in good
condition with 1 minor edge tear and some discoloration on the bottom
the original soundtrack of the 1977 George Lucas film, The Story
of Star Wars c 1977 is both a super period (released in the year
of the film debut) album of John Williams music from the film as
well as the actors and actresses who made it such a success including
Mark Hamil, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Alec Guinness. The
record is in very good condition, but best of all is the original
magazine insert included in the album which features photographs
of the characters and dymanic, action scenes from the movie all
in full color. Collectics prize this album as much for the insert
as for the recorded sounds on the record, and it makes a great gift
for any Star Wars or science fiction enthusiast in your life. Priced
to sell from a Greenwich, CT estate collection of Star Wars memorabilia
and cross listed on Memorabilia 2. /16
hard to find set of advertising trade cards c 1880s with super color
lithography and a theme. This set of 2 promotes pianos, organs,
and musical instruments 1. "Buy only the Clough & Warren

advertising card, noting they are "Dealers in Pianos, Organs,
and Musical Goods" in Ionia, Michigan and "The Only Music
Store In The City." (4.0" x 2.75"). Louis Prang,
a lithographer and printer, develops the idea of mass-producing
small "trade cards" that could be adapted to the needs of individual
advertisers at low cost in the 1870's. Illustrated trade cards reach
the height of their popularity in the 1880s, not only with advertisers
but also with the American public which becomes very interested
in collecting them. Both cards are in very good condition with near
mint color lithographed images and only de minimus age wear on the
rear. These early advertising cards easily go for $12 or more each,
so enjoy the bargain pricing only at Collectics, part of a major
estate collection and consignment of the finest advertising memorabilia
