Date Book 1932
1 Date Book 1932
Germany 1931 Near Fine 
Wonderful sharp and colorful Art Deco design on thin leatherette cover! 64mo. 6 by 4 cm. Unpaginated, 22 leaves (44 pp). Unused, for blank lines for each day of the year, along with info on birthstones and flowers, wedding anniversaries (what each is symbolized by), and on phases of the moon and holidays. But obviously, this is very much about the loveliness of the binding. This particular copy is stamped with the business name, "Perin Drug Store, Monument Square, Dover-Foxcroft, ME", but this was surely sold to businesses to be distributed as a freebie or favor.

Fan-shaped Calendar for 1899, Compliments of Stickney & Poor Spice Co., Founded 1815
2 Fan-shaped Calendar for 1899, Compliments of Stickney & Poor Spice Co., Founded 1815
Wraps Near Fine 
Lovely diminutive calendar brochure shaped like a fan, measuring a mere 3.5 by 6 cm, at the widest and tallest, with a ridged edge that emulates the wavy edge of a genuine fan. Seven leaves, including wraps. Promotion on the verso of the front cover, with a page for each month thereafter. Chromo decoration on the front and rear cover, with daisies on the front overlaying the fan trompe d'oeil elements, while the rear is meant to replicate the look of the fan's backing. Typical floral decoration for the period surrounding each month. The interest in this calendar is the novelty in its liliputian dimensions combined with its shape. A few soil marks on the rear. Otherwise, fine.

3 The Youth's Companion for 1891
Boston Perry Mason & Co. 1890 First edition Very Good 
Oblong, 13 by 18 cm. Eight leaves of glossy stock, with a title page on the front cover, followed by a card for each day of the week, and on the same card, two months and chromolithographic illustrations and decoration. The vignettes are allegorical, of gnomes, a monk, Father Time, an angel, a Byzantine priest. They are the kind of illustrations one might find as frescoes in a stately office building of the day, and they together make this a most charming promotional calendar. The promotion is on the rear of most of the cards, where we find listed many titles in the Perry Mason & Co.'s catalogue of the day. (This is not Perry Mason as in Erle Stanley Gardner, but rather the boy's magazine company whose name Gardner appropriated for his defense attorney.) A very tiny closed tear and light wear besides. The calendar's leaves are held together by two strings.

[Dance Card] Bürgerball des VIII Gemeinde-Bezirkes Josefstadt.  Sale Zum Grunen Thor, 11 Februar 1885.
6 [Dance Card] Bürgerball des VIII Gemeinde-Bezirkes Josefstadt. Sale Zum Grunen Thor, 11 Februar 1885.
Wien (Vienna) Aug. Klein 1885 Near Fine 
A most unusual dance card from the capital of the waltz during its heyday! On the front is mounted a miniature leaf a day calendar, this calendar bound with a colored pattern satin. The calendar begins on February 11, the day of the particular ball, and continues until the end of the year. This calendar is mounted onto a stiff leather card base, through which a string with the requisite tassel and brass hook are attached. On the other side of the leather piece is the dance card proper, held closed by a thin pencil, and with a cover of silk. One opens the dance card to find a title page, followed by blanks onto which the danseuse would have entered her dance commitments for the evening. This particular card has never been used, and so the pencil, the calendar, the dance card itself, is in wonderful shape, with subtraction from pristine solely the inevitable toll from the passage of time. Measures, at tallest, 70 mm, and about 44 mm wide.

7 Serizawa, K. [Keisuke] Calendar 1957
Tokyo 1956 First Edition Stiff Folder Near Fine 
39 by 29.5 cm folder, with 12 brightly colored monthly plates, 37 by 29 cm. Serizawa (1895-1984) was a much celebrated and decorated fabric and textile designer. In 1956 he was proclaimed by the Emperor "Holder of an Important Intangible Cultural Property", a title known outside Japan as a "Human National Treasure" of Japan. And in 1976 he was appointed Member of the Order of Cultural Merit. He began issuing calendars, each different from the prior ones, in 1946, and continued to do them until his death. The artwork and appearance of the calendars is highly distinctive, with their dazzling colors, their brash, broad-brush typography, their bold, whimsical, folk art-inspired and often playful imagery arranged idiosyncratically. Serizawa was applying his artistic sensibility and technique from textile work onto paper, and the result is unlike virtually anything else one is likely to have ever viewed. Serizawa's technique, known as "Kataezome", was a traditional one that had fallen into disuse. Basically it involved stencils combined with dye-resistent paste. Serizawa also relied on vegetable colors. In reviving Kataezome, Serizawa involved himself in every step of the process. The results bear some kinship to colorful Japanese toy catalogues, but these calendars have an explosion of color and collage-like composition that easily sets them apart from these catalogues all the same. The artwork here proclaims a freedom in so many ways, and yet they are clearly painstaking in their technique and are all of a piece and relate well to one another. With instruction sheet for hanging. Light and smallish dampstain on lower edge of folder front cover. Minor creasing to plates along edges here and there.
