    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original black-and-white photo postcard. Postmarked in Cheltenham, England. No date, circa 1910s-1920s. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2."

This postcard shows a portrait of Phyllis Dare, an English actress and singer. She was well-known for her stage performances in Edwardian musical comedy.

There is handwriting on the back in black ink, a brief note addressed to someone living in Somerset, England. Publisher's information on back: "Tuck's Post Card; Raphael Tuck & Sons' Real Photograph G 916; Celebrities of the Stage; Art Publishers to Their Majesties the King & Queen." In 1866, Raphael Tuck & Sons was founded by Raphael Tuck and his wife, Ernestine, on Union Street (now Brushfield Street) in Bishopgate, London. They began selling pictures, frames, and greeting cards but soon ventured into selling postcards in 1899. Postcards had been gaining popularity at the time and were most popular during the late 1800s-early 1900s. The company received its first Royal Warrant of Appointment from Queen Victoria in 1893 which is signified by the notation, "Art Publishers to Her Majesty the Queen," and the like printed on Tuck's products. Other monarchs also granted Raphael Tuck & Sons this warrant later on. The business was then passed down to Raphael's sons, Adolph, Gustave, and Herman, and then to Adolph's own sons, Reginald and Desmond. Unfortunately, the company headquarters, Raphael House, and thousands of records and original source material were destroyed in 1940 during the Blitz. After World War II, Raphael Tuck & Sons managed to start over from scratch and many of its employees came back. The company enjoyed new success over the subsequent years. Raphael Tuck & Sons closed in 1959 upon the retirement of Desmond Tuck, and it was sold to the British Printing Corporation.

Trade card is very clean and intact overall except for slight wrinkling and a few spots of discoloration on front and back. A Very Good copy. Trade card advertising Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound as sold by pharmacist W. B. Tobey in Syracuse, New York. In 1873, Lydia Estes Pinkham (1819-1883) invented her famous Vegetable Compound in her home in Lynn, Massachusetts. It was a combination of medicinal herbs and drinking alcohol. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was much like other patent medicines that proliferated during the late nineteenth century in claiming to cure a host of ailments with little to no evidence and being questionable at best. However, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was unique in that it was not only invented by a woman but also catered towards women's health. The main selling point of Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was alleviating menstrual and menopausal symptoms. An excerpt on the back details its supposed uses, "A Positive Cure For all those painful Complaints and Weaknesses so common to our best female population. It will cure entirely the worst form of Female Complaints, all Ovarian troubles, Inflammation and Ulceration, Falling and Displacements, and the consequent Spinal Weakness, and is particularly adapted to the Change of Life." The description also claims to cure "cancerous tumors . faintness, flatulency . Nervous Prostration, General Debility, Sleeplessness, Depression and Indigestion." Also promoted on back are Lydia E. Pinkham's Liver Pills, which claim to "cure constipation, biliousness, and torpidity of the liver." Pinkham's Vegetable Compound became very popular due to an involved marketing campaign and reassurance that Pinkham, being a woman, understood and knew how to treat women's ailments. Eventually, the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act led to the demise of the Vegetable Compound. By 1906, the alcohol content in the Vegetable Compound had been reduced, but it still contained a whopping fifteen percent which now had to be disclosed. The act also required that products no longer print specious claims about their curative properties, thus ending the Vegetable Compound's successful marketing campaign. However, the products under the Pinkham brand remained popular, and the Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Company stayed in business until 1968 when it was sold to Cooper Laboratories. As recent as the early twenty-first century, products based off the original Vegetable Compound were still available for purchase in pharmacies albeit with no alcohol. Trade cards are antique business cards that first became popular during the late seventeenth century in Paris and Lyon, France and London, England. Trade cards were often given by business owners and proprietors to patrons and customers as a way to promote their businesses. Prior to the use of street addresses, trade cards had maps so clients could locate the associated business. Many of these cards also incorporated elaborate designs, illustrations, and other decorative features. Trade cards became popular in the United States during the nineteenth century in the period after the Civil War. The late nineteenth century also saw the advent of trade card collecting as a hobby. While they are no longer in use, trade cards influenced the formation of trading cards and were the predecessors of modern-day business cards.

Trade card is very clean and intact overall except for age toning, a few tiny wrinkles, and a few spots of discoloration on front and back. A Very Good copy. Trade card advertising Chillarine, Mexican Female Remedy and Dr. M. A. Simmon's Liver Medicine as sold by Hunt & Doss in Colorado City, Texas. Hunt & Doss was a store that carried drugs, medicines, and toiletries. Text on back promotes both medicines. Chillarine claims to cure chills, hence the name, and ailments unique to women's health (menstrual symptoms, etc.). Simmon's Liver Medicine is marketed as a cure-all to all sorts of diseases and health problems such as "Indigestion, Colic, Dyspepsia, Biliousness, Costiveness, . Foul Breath . Cholera, Yellow Fever, and all Malarial Diseases." Like other patent medicines of their time, both the Liver Medicine's and Chillarine's curative properties were dubious at best. The popularity of patent medicines waned following changes in public opinion and the work of watchdog groups which led to the passage of consumer protection acts. The first of these acts, the Pure Food and Drug Act, was passed in 1906 and ushered in a new period of company accountability and higher product safety standards.

    No Binding. Condition: Fine. Original publisher's beige wrapper with deckle edge at the bottom. 6" x 9." Four unnumbered pages, complete. Pages are pristine and intact. A Fine copy. "Printed for the Members of the Book Club of California, May MCMLXXII" is printed at the bottom of the first page. A tribute and eulogy to Florence G. Walter (1884-1972) who was a bookbinder and book collector based in San Francisco. This pamphlet is also biographical and highlights her career and accomplishments. Walter's bookbinding expertise was in what is known as the French style of bookbinding. She was a student of Belle McMurtry Young and Herbert and Peter Fahey of San Francisco and also of Charles Collet of Paris. Her work was exhibited at several prominent institutions such as the Princeton University Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the World's Fair in Brussels. As a collector, Walter focused on twentieth-century printing, but her collection included exceptional examples of printing that spanned the fifteenth century to the twentieth. Walter was very involved with the Book Club of California, where she became its director, chair of the house committee, and first woman president of the Club from 1952-1955. The author of this pamphlet, David Magee (1905-1977), was a San Francisco bookseller, bibliographer, and novelist. In his career, he was the president of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA), the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco, and the Book Club of California.
