A11-B Very small pamphlet, "Tea Drinking," from the Kwong Sang Tea Company, about 1968, printed (and apparently written) in Hong Kong, originally found with some sample Chinese teas. Note the fascinating fractured English, e.g., "When to Drink Tea," "1. Any time of the day." "2. At work: Increases the interest in your work." "3. In Conference: Assists to reach the right decision," and the final, "7. At home: Maintains that happy family atmosphere." Other sections discuss the "Three China Famous Tea," "The Chinese Art of tea Drinking," "How to Make Tea," and "The Brief History of Kwong Sang Tea Co."

A11-C - one unusual hardcover book (most others are in our Hardcovers Section), "Glimpses of the World's Fair." This was the Chicago 1893 fair and is a compendium of about 100 or so 5 1/2 by 7 inch photographs, each with a sentence or two of description. Most include the cost of each pavillion! Sadly, the book is in rather poor condition (shown in pics). The front binding is not attached, and the very front page may be missing. Photos are typical of pre-1900 quality (sometimes rather dark), and many pages show considerable wear. However, the wealth of information about the Fair makes this a worthwhile purchase.

$40 (a bit extra on mailing cost)


I have always been fascinated by old almanacs, as they reflect the social, political, economic and technological status of the years that they represent. The Old Farmer's Almanacs are especially fascinating; they are aimed toward New England, but most of the articles are appropriate to any part of the US (and often the World). Sadly, most of mine are in only Fair condition, with page darkening and chipping. However, the paper quality is better than most newer books and booklets, and their information is priceless! Here are some of the almanacs I've collected over the years.


A91 - "Punch's Almanack," from (get this:)1861; 12 pp., about 8 1/2" x 11", loaded with illustrations, looks like it was pulled from a binder, but relatively straight edges; a couple of minor folds, but little chipping, slightly faded but no foxing! Lots of astronomical information, but also humorous articles, such as "Notes on Nursing," and "The Inconveniences of a Hansom." All in all, in fairly good condition, and over 138 years old!
$28


A92 - Another oldie, "Agricultural Almanac / For the Year 1868," 6 1/2 x 7 1/2", for Lancaster Pennsylvania, sadly, with a rather nasty 1 1/2 by 1" stain/tear at the bottom, and a couple of other stains. Some writing inside (Binding has been reinforced with tape). Some chipping and lower right corner of some pages folded. About 1/4 of second-to-last page cut out, and 2" tear on last page. All-in-all, in rather poor condition, but some great articles, such as "Culture of Cantaloupes," "Grape Hints,""Making Good Butter in Winter,""How to Keep Butter in Summer,""The Culture of Hops," and "The Rattlesnake Story," (very interesting!); if in good condition, it would probably bring $40+, but here...

A92-A "Dr. Harter's Almanac" of 1887, small (about 32 5" by 7" pps) mostly advertising for Dr. Harter's products (such as Iron Tonic, Lung Balm, Liver Pills, Soothing Drops, and more), but includes bits of info (e.g., How to Measure Timber, Measurement of Stone and Brickwork), and some humor as well. Apparently, these almanacs were provided to various drugstores for re-sale. On the back cover is stamped, "Emmett Kannel, Druggist, Rensselaer, Ind." Some pencilling on top of back cover, spine is OK, basically very good condition (especially for a 130-year-old item).

The March issue has taped spine, and for some reason the pages were trimmed (about 1/4 inch) but all page text is there. The June issue is in barely "fair" condition; 2 or 3 pages have been partially cut out, and the front cover is in poor condition. Most pages are in good (a little musty) condition.
