The Youth's Companion Calendar -- 1899
6 The Youth's Companion Calendar -- 1899
Boston Perry Mason & Company 1898 First Edition NA Very Good 
Unusual chromolithographic calendar which opens like a three panel mirror that might sit atop a lady's vanity. Closed, the calendar is 28 by 20 cm. Its full width when opened is 60 cm. When the top panels are pulled opened and to the side, revealed are three portraits of a beautiful young blue-eyed woman, the central portrait a bust, the two side portraits, full body and partial profiles. The decoration is a combination of Art Nouveau and Rococo Revival, with thick gilt serving as an outline border. The whole production is very pretty, if kitschy, with such things as the two outer panels forming a heart shape when the card is completely closed. A corner abrasion on the front panel, and other light soiling and wear to the outside.

7 Vittel 1930
Societe Generale des Eaux Minerales de Vittel 1930 Card backing. Envelope. Very Good 
Booklet, 16mo. 9.5 cm tall, and opened to 12.5 cm wide. The card base is slightly larger, with feet and a top piece that from top to bottom measure 12.5 cm. The feet look like tabs if one focuses only on them, but gazing at the whole, one sees they are meant, with the top piece, to mimic an easel upon which the booklet rests. In the back of the card is a metal support which was meant to be pulled out to allow for the whole thing to stand up. (Here the metal is unused and thus unbent.) The back of the card also has Pompeian urn ornamentation and the date "1930". The booklet: 32 pp. The center of the booklet is a two page photo of a hotel grounds at Vittel. The other pages are given over to monthly calendars and facing pages with cartoonish drawings of literary giants (Hugo, de Musset, Ronsard) and captions of quotes from them in which they refer to Vittel waters. A few pages in the front and back discuss the Vittel waters and their curative properties. Also included is the original envelope used to send the promotional calendar.

8 Wood, Lawson (1878-1957) 1949 Calendar
Minneapolis Brown & Bigelow 1948 Spiral Bound Very Good Minus 
No one satisfies that itch for kitsch as well as Lawson Wood! 37 by 21 cm. 12 leaves -- title page and leaf for each month of the year. Possibly missing a title leaf. Anthropomorphic chimpanzees in the corporate world, roller skating, evading the T-Man, dancing, etc. Lawson Wood is the Norman Rockwell of the chimp world. Another close kinship would be with the canine artist extraordinaire, C. M. Coolidge, roughly a contemporary and also an artist who worked for Brown & Bigelow. His smoothly rendered, colorful fantasies are certain to produce a grin in even the most hardened cynic. Through chimps Wood pokes fun at human busy-ness, pretensions, vulgarities and excesses. The pictorials are the greater part of each page, amounting to two thirds of it. Wood was an English illustrator and painter known also for his humorous takes on dinosaurs, cavemen, policemen and other animals. January, the top leaf, is soiled and has a small edge chip.
