Sinsational 1943 Original Vintage Life Photo Page- Slightly Vampy, Slightly Campy Gaudy, Glorious Gypsy Rose Lee
Sinsational 1943 Original Vintage Life Photo- Slightly Vampy, Slightly Campy Gaudy Glorious Gypsy Rose Lee! Utterly Fantastic Vintage Original Color Photo Page taken from a late, 1943 issue of Life Magazine. The beautiful, talented witty and wild spirit of Gypsy Rose Lee transformed the bawdy and crude world of the burlesque show forever. While fellow artist Sally Rand did it with feathers and dignity, Gypsy honed her talent for the slow-burn, fast talking and vividly witty strip-tease. She discussed great books, great thinners playing to her audience with enormous chapeaus, glittering costumes and an inherently goofy but smart sense of humor. This is a perfect example of just what to expect from her in late 1943- after her triumphs at the New York Worlds Fair, several tours and just prior to her brief stint as a Hollywood star. Gypsy poses in stunning shades of pink, spangled sequins covering whatever portion of her body is not clad in bikini. She looks magnificent- the talented unknown photographer has given her dignity, humor and most of all pizazz! As she herself would have said- Either ya got it or ya ain't! Color Photo Page measures 11 x 15 and is in technicolor bright condition. This is a wondrous example of exactly why Life Magazine was the premiere photo-journal of the day- a historically campy image that will lend a tone of vintage vamp to any decor! Remember it is our hope at A Fine Madness Collectibles that you find something you never even knew you wanted. Thanks for dropping by!

This Bavarian Porcelain Plate Displays the King Farouk's Crown Insignia. The F I MONOGRAM is followed by the numeral, I. The I is included, assuming the Egyptian thrown would pass down eventually to a Farouk descendent, his progeny. (Farouk was the fourth in his family to ascend to the Egyptian thrown. The 1st was his great-grandfather, Pasha (king Isliam); then his grandfather,King Fuad I; and last, his father, King Fuad II). But King Farouk was the last of his line. He was overthrown and sent into Exile in 1952. Farouk was a passionate collector of fine antiques. The victorious military coup, in need of money, commissioned Southeby's to sell thousands of Farouk's treasures. That is how this very beautiful plate came into the possession of an avid American collector. * Signature Marks on back of plate are BAVARIA in gold. Below 'BAVARIA' are the numerals, 18 and to the side is the Hallmark, which we do not recognize. Beneath those mars are two more numerals in gold: 51. The present owner has asked us to list his Farouk antiques and act as manager/broker in his behalf. We are authorized to offer 6 months lay-away. PLATE IS 11 1/4 DIAMETER. CONDITION: PERFECT. MINT

Written by a private wounded in the battle of Stones River, Tennessee 4 pages, 5 x 8, in ink, written by John A. Berger, to his family. Camp near Tuscumbia, Ala., June 20th, 1862 Dear Parents and Brothers, I improve the present opportunity to write a few lines to you. I am well and so are the rest of the boys from that neighborhood except Conrad. He has been quite poorly for a day or so, he has a slight touch of the dysentery, but is better this afternoon. I feel in hopes that Dan has got home before this time. His discharge was not signed by all the officers that was necessary and I don't expect it has been got on account of our being on the move most of the time since it was made out, but it will probably be signed and sent to him. When he went from camp we thought he would not have much, if any, trouble in getting a sick furlough when he got to Evansville hospital, or some other, and I shall continue to think so till I hear something to the contrary, and I believe now while I am writing here in the woods he is enjoying the society of friends at home, and may God hasten the day when the soldiers that are now in the field may all be permitted to return to their friends. I received your kind letters of the 6th and 7th and thought I would answer it today as old Mr. Stephen Turner in the 44 [Indiana] Reg. is going home in a day or so. I will send this by him if I can get it to him before he starts. I have not answered Charley and Bell's letter yet that they sent, but I will answer them as soon as I get time. Tell Hattie if she don't write some to me that I shall think she don't want to write. Troops are still crossing the river, but they don't appear to be in any hurry about crossing. There is some talk now that we are to stay here for a while until further orders. I don't see how the Rebels are to hold out much longer if we get Richmond, and we shall of course. We have got the Miss. River and Jackson and Memphis and most all other strong positions, and when we get Richmond, the Southern Confederacy is played out in my estimation. If they undertake to carry on the war longer they will probably brake up into small parties and then if the government will take my advice, they will hold on to the strong positions and let them fight it out among themselves which I think they would soon get tired of and the majority would ask for the protection of the Federal Government. There is not much of anything going on in camp, cooking and eating, and washing, going in a swimming, selling cigars, tobacco, fish, oysters, lemons, onion, &c, &c, all at quadruple prices, butter 50 cts. per lb., oysters $1.00 for enough for one fellow to eat at one meal. Capt. [James H.M.] Jenkins calls his Co. out once in a while and takes them through the manual of arms, and puts one on double, but now and then, if he should be out of hearing when he sees fit to call the Co. out, the boys don't like Capt. much, but leaving Capt. Jenkins out, and then I don't think we could have any better officers. Our Col., Adjt., and the Col. that has command of this brigade are all that could be wished for. Our Col. has gone home. Since we came here the weather has been very pleasant for a while back. Capt. has written, or caused to be written orders for J. Larrie [?] to report to the Co. forthwith or be considered a deserter. I must close so no more at present, but remain as ever, Yours affectionately, John A. Berger The small boxes he has drawn on the top of the letter are little kisses he is sending to his brother and sister. Light age toning and wear. The ink is a little light in some spots, but all readable. The entire content of the letter will come in a typed transcript. Very nice content as written by this Indiana soldier stationed in Alabama. John A. Berger, was a resident of Yorke Centre, Indiana, when he enlisted as a private on August 27, 1861, and was mustered into Co. A, 29th Indiana Infantry. He was wounded in action at the battle of Stone's River, Tenn., on December 31, 1862, and discharged from his wounds on April 19, 1863. Before being wounded his regiment participated in the battle of Shiloh, Tenn.

North American Railroad Family Trees By: Brian Solomon
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The history of railroading in North America is as much a story of boardroom intrigue as it is a story of the brute force that stamped thousands of miles of train track across a rugged continent. Today's nine U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads are the result of well over a century of convoluted bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, and expansions. North American Railroad Family Trees marks the first time in book form that this major aspect of railroad history has been presented in a clear, graphic format, helping the railfan make sense of the many smaller train lines that shaped North American rail as it is today. In these pages, renowned rail author Brian Solomon takes a visual and chronological approach, presenting 50 family trees in the style of human lineages. The story begins with the railroads of the Golden Age (1890-1930), continuing through the second wave of consolidations between the World Wars, the merger mania of the 1950s through the 1970s, the creation of major passenger networks, and the megamergers of the last three decades that have left railroading close to its current incarnation. Solomon even offers a selection of maps tracing the evolution of the North American rail system and diagrams proposing what-if scenarios for the industry's future. Including chapter-by-chapter narrative overviews of key eras, along with a selection of rare photography and period advertising to lend historical context, North American Railroad Family Trees provides an unprecedented retrospective of the continent's iconic rail network.

Fender's Stratocaster is arguably the number-one instrument icon of the guitar world. When introduced in 1954, its offset space-age lines, contoured body, and three-pickup configuration set the music world on its ear--it was truly unlike any guitar that had come before. In the hands of the world's most beloved players, the Stratocaster has since become a popular weapon of choice among rock, blues, jazz, and country players and, not coincidentally, is also one of the most copied electric guitars of all time. In this authoritatively written, painstakingly curated, and gloriously presented tribute to the 60-year-old Fender Stratocaster, author Dave Hunter covers the guitar's history from concept, design, and model launch through its numerous variations and right up to the present. The story is illustrated with archival images of Stratocasters and their players in action, studio shots of Stratocasters of varied vintage and provenance, memorabilia associated with famous players, and profiles of over 30 noted Strat slingers through the ages. Influential rock'n' rollers like Buddy Holly, Hank Marvin, Ike Turner, and Dick Dale; blues players like Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, and John Mayer; metal gods Richie Blackmore, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Dave Murray; esteemed rockers Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Robbie Robertson, Rory Gallagher, Mark Knopfler, and Wayne Kramer; and post-punk heroes The Edge, John Frusciante, and Billy Corgan are all included. And so, of course, is Jimi Hendrix. With its unprecedented level of detail and stunning visuals, The Fender Stratocaster is the only book tribute worthy of the world's greatest guitar.
