Fun Without Vulgarity Victorian and Edwardian Popular Entertainment Posters, Catherine Haill
8 Catherine Haill Fun Without Vulgarity Victorian and Edwardian Popular Entertainment Posters
London, UK The Stationery Office 1996 0114402639 / 9780114402631 First Edition Paperback New 9 3/4" x 10 1/2" 
Unread, unmarked. 80 pages of color plates plus 12 b&w illustrations. Bibliography, index of artists. This book is a collection of 80 entertainment posters from England which were produced during the last twenty years of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century. In the history of popular entertainment, none is more recognized than the British Music Hall. This selection of posters, from the archives of the Public Record Office at Kew, takes us back to an era when novelty vaudeville acts were all the rage and lavish theatrical productions were prevalent. Fun Without Vulgarity is also a history of this type of entertainment, showing, through poster reproductions, how trends and attitudes changed, and how theatrical managers kept up and offered the public what it wanted. Poster designers, heavily influenced by the French style, created a new art form which combined fine art and popular culture, yet maintaining simplicity. After all, these posters were advertising and had to appeal to the general public. Audiences were thrilled at the wide potpourri of acts, including the underwater antics of "The Aquatic Acrobats" and the amazing dental athletics of "The beautiful Florences." And to a prim and proper Victorian audience, what could be more titillating than "The Slave Girl" or "A Disgrace To Her Sex"? It's all represented in Fun Without Vulgarity, from circuses and novelty acts (Check out "The Ugliest Woman on Earth." Look Children, Don't Turn Away!) to melodramas ("The Slave Girl. She's A Woman! She's A Slave!") and Pantomime. Also, there're posters from the great English theatre of the day, from William Gillette in Sherlock Holmes to the Gilbert and Sullivan productions from the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. Each poster is beautifully reproduced in full-color, recreating a moment in time that was truly the Golden Age of Show Business.

Christie's Pictorial History of English and American Silver, Clayton, Michael
10 Clayton, Michael Christie's Pictorial History of English and American Silver
Oxford, England Phaidon-Christie's 1985 0714880183 / 9780714880181 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 8 1/2" x 11 1/4" 
Unread, minor shelf wear. Out-of-print 1985 classic book on English and American silver published by one of the world's foremost auction houses, Christie's. A perfect reference book for professional dealers and collectors alike, this book has color and black & white photos of over 1000 pieces and covers the periods and styles from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. As a bonus the book includes auction prices for pieces illustrated. After a general introduction discussing the role and importance of silver in our culture, the book is divided into nine major periods, ranging from earliest Elizabethan in the 1600s to the splendors of Victoriana. Within each period the changing functions, forms and styles are chronicled in a sequence of double pages, each devoted to a particular type and style. The pieces pictured are for the most part, utilitarian: flatware, seals, cups, porringers, candlesticks, toilet services, cruets, wax jacks, baskets, and many others. Silver continues to be a valuable collecting item and this pictorial history shows the range of items that are in the hands of private collectors, not museum pieces. This will be a valuable resource for reference, identification and comparison.; 320 pages

Let's Collect Scotch Whisky, Daiches, David
12 Daiches, David Let's Collect Scotch Whisky
Norwich, UK Jarrold 1999 0711702225 / 9780711702226 Paperback New 5" x 7 1/2" 
Saddle-stiched paperback. New, flawless. David Daiches, a collector and a Scot, explains in words and pictures the process of making scotch, from wetting the barley, to distilling the spirits. Barley, peat and water are the essential ingredients in distilling scotch whisky, yet there are regional differences in taste and color and the author explains what causes these differences, as well as the difference between single malt and blended scotch. Contrary to what many people think, blended scotch is not just a blending of several different single malts to achieve a different taste, far from it, but you will have to read the book to find out what it is. David also recommends which whiskies are worth collecting. Although small, the book provides a lot of excellent information. Nearly 100 bottles are illustrated in color. If you are a scotch drinker, this book is worth having.; 32 pages
