New 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.



R022 A 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 left edge.   $12.00
R023 From 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 SOLD
R024 Very 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 Organs- They Captivate The World features a trio of silly frogs hanging from a balloon with this advertising slogan and is beautifully lithographed (5.0" x 2.75"). 2. J. L. Reynolds & Co. 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 and collectibles. $18.00/ set of 2
R025 Only Lonely Little Me is one of those fun pieces that really attract collectors of vintage sheet music, with great cover art of the mother and her little girl in the foreground and the dancing couple off to the left. It has words by Fred Ellwood and music by Ted Snyder. Published by Ted Snyder Music of NY in 1909, this 13.5" x 10.75" piece is in good condition with a small tear about 1.0" long on the top left corner and 2 other minor edge tears less than 0.25". Included as a special bonus is one of the rare copies of Some Sunday Morning, with lyrics by Gus Kahn and Raymond Egan and music by Richard A. Whiting. There's a great inset photograph of Beatrice Lambert, published in 1917 to celebrate the end of World War I. The 13.5" x 10.5" piece is in fair condition with one large and several smaller edge tears, a tear approximately 1.0" at the top right corner, and some minor spine separation, but it won't be noticeable in the frame these two will end up in.  $22.00/pr
R026 That's Life I Guess, with words by Sam Lewis and music by Peter De Rose, introduced and featured by Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians. Great sketch of Guy on the front cover signed by McCoy. The previous owner claimed it in pencil signing Frank Gaines and 2.00, easily erased but some collectors like the nostalgia so I've left it for now. Published by Crawford Music Corporation of New York, NY in 1936. Guy was leading the dance while Europe was progressing toward war. Great old piece of Guy Lombardo sheet music with a great sketch for framing. Good condition save some minor wear to the corners and a slight tear to the bottom right corner. Minor age discoloration. Great piece of history for framing or to join your collection of old sheet music. Measures 12" high by 9" wide. $8.00

R028 Coinciding with the end of World War I, this is Tears of Love, dedicated to Norma Talmadge with music by S. R. Henry and words by Frank H. Warren.

R029 Smiles has lyrics by J. Will Callahan and and music by Lee S. Roberts, but most of all it has early color cover art of a beautiful young woman embodying the title with a lovely smile. Published in 1918 at the end of World War I by Lee Robberts and transferred to Jerome Remick in 1918. The cover art is very reflective of the period, and this was part of the estate of a Broadway musician M. Allen and was signed and dated by him on the cover October 11, 1918 which is a special touch many collectors seek out. It has a few minor edge tears but all in all is in very good condition for the age and has great color retention to the cover art. It measures approximately 13.75" x 10.5" and could make a great surprise gift for someone you love. $14.00
R030 New listing! Why Did You Make Me Care has words by Sylvester McGuire and music by Alfred Solman, published by Joe Morris Music of NY in 1912.

The 13.5" x 10.5" piece is in fair condition with a cover fold, significant spine separation and a number of edge tears, but it's destined for a frame.   $8.00
