With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Eighth Annual of Advertising Art from Advertisements Shown at the Exhibition of the Art Directors Club, Art Center, New York, May 4 to 29, 1929
New York Art Directors Club of New York 1929 First Edition Cloth Very Good Plus 
4to. 29 by 21 cm. [15], 134, [46] pp. With hundreds of pictorial ads reproduced, mostly several to a page, but a significant number full page and 39 pages in full color. With the distance of nine decades, one can see that the close affinity of these fine examples of commercial art and the more high-toned gallery artwork of the day, and that the boundary separating the commerical from the more purely artistic was a blur. In fact, some of the designers, painters or photographers here are revered today for their non-commercial work.. Guy Arnoux, Edward Steichen, Norman Rockwell, Benito, N.C. Wyeth, Georges LePape, Rockwell Kent are among those with recognizable names today. Here abound cloched hatted Flappers, handsome Arrow-collared Ivy Leaguers, Art Deco linealities and sophistication, the dramatic city-scapes evocative of Sloane, Bellows and Hopper, literal historicism. There is a wide range of styles and sensibilities, but an overarching commonality is the effective economy and drama invested in so many of the images. Light wear to the cover.

2 [Poster] The New Baby. A Howling Success. Chaperoned by David DeWolf. "Noah, wait and get your medicine"
New York The U.S. Printing Co. Russell Morgan Print. 1899 NA Very Good 
Oblong poster, 58 by 71.5 cm. Depicting a frightened bald man being pursued by a man with a rifle and club, and what looks like workers in a hotel -- a bellhop, maids, and who knows who else, those in the background laughing as if it is all a lark. There were quite a few different posters created for this particular play. Minor tears and moderate soiling along the margin. The pictorial core is unaffected and remains bright.
