        SALESMAN'S ALBUM With 60 PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES Of INDIAN MOTORCYCLES.

      Ca late 1930s / early 1940s, Springfield, Mass: - This a presumed company-issued production, no doubt targeted for those who already owned an Indian Motorcycle franchise, or generated for traveling company reps, allowing prospective buyers, such as police departments, to view the entire product line. We find no bibliographical record of another such album being offered, and believe the album to have been produced in limited numbers. This visual offering begins with the Indian Thirty-Fifty, Model 540. The grouping of photos include the models and new features of each cycle available. Some have been airbrushed to delete the backgrounds and insure a faithful representation. These include the: Model 337-Standard Indian Y Chief; Model 637-Standard Sport Scout 45; Model 437-Sport Indian Four; Model 537-Indian Junior Scout; Model 237- Standard Indian Scout 45. Next are the photographs showing the special models for that year (with the above models being factory direct). They include; Indian Police Special Seventy-four; Police Special Indian Four; Indian Four (model 441 with four-cylinder air-cooled in-line engine"); Indian Chief Seventy-four (Model 341); Standard Body Indian Dispatch Car; Large Body Indian Dispatch Car; Indian Thirty-fifty (Model 540); Indian Sport Scout 45 (Model 641); Indian Thirty-fifty (Model 541); Side Van Commercial Indian Motorcycle; Indian Police Car; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-27; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-33; Indian Dispatch Tow Model DT-29, etc. The DT models are all three-wheel vehicles for either police use or delivery companies. Many of the remainder of the photographs show Indian Motorcycles in use, with numerous pictures of various police departments that had adopted Indians for their use. Some of the police departments include Denver Police Department, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Iowa Highway Patrol, Illinois State Highway Maintenance Police, New York City Police, Pennsylvania State Highway Patrol. Massachusetts State Police. In the mid- 30s Indian was in fierce competition with Harley-Davidson to provide police departments across the county with motorcycles. Also included are various transformations of the Dispatch Models including a fine one of a fleet of the custom built DTs for the Biltmore Florist of Los Angeles. There is also an armored Indian with armored side car (with two police officers seated and machine guns jutting out the front), another full page photograph of a fleet or armored motorcycles in Peru, and one racing photograph and one rally photographThe "Indian Motorcycle Co.", represented visually herein by a birds-eye view of their factory in Springfield, MA, was originally founded as the Hendee Manufacturing Company by George M. Hendee in 1897, manufacturing bicycles. Carl Oscar Hedstrom joined in 1900. Both Hendee & Hedstrom were former bicycle racers and manufacturers, and they teamed up to produce a motorcycle with a 1.75 bhp, single-cylinder engine; this was accomplished in Hendee's home town of Springfield. The bike was successful and sales increased dramatically during the next decade. In 1901, a prototype and two production units of the diamond framed Indian Single were successfully designed, built & tested. The first Indian motorcycles, having chain drives and streamlined styling, were sold to the public in 1902. In 1903, Indian's cofounder and chief engineer Oscar Hedstrom set the world motorcycle speed record (56 mph). The Scout and Chief V-twins, introduced in the early 1920s, became the Springfield firm's most successful models. Designed by Charles B. Franklin, the middleweight Scout and larger Chief shared a 42-degree V- twin engine layout. Both models gained a reputation for strength and reliability. In 1930, Indian merged with Du Pont Motors. DuPont Motors founder E. Paul DuPont ceased production of duPont automobiles and concentrated the company's resources on Indian. Models of that era had Indian's famous head-dress logo on the gas tank. Indian's huge Springfield factory was known as the Wigwam, and native America [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        S/W Porträtphotographie. [ca. 23 x 16,5 cm].

      Wien, Fayer, o. J. [um 1930?].. . Mit Prägestempel und eighd. Signatur des Fotografen. - Abzug auf Karton montiert, darunter Namensschildchen, Karton m. Gbrsp. sowie Resten von drei Klebefilmstreifen. - Berg, (1883 - 1956), versuchte sich bereits mit 15 Jahren als Komiker am Stadttheater in Leitmeritz; Engagements in Teplitz, Mährisch-Ostrau und Aussig folgten. Erste größere Erfolge hatte er gemeinsam mit Heinrich Eisenbach als Mitglied des Budapester Orpheum in Wien, dem er 17 Jahre lang angehörte. In der Folge trat er in diversen Kabaretts und Lokalen auf, wie dem Theater der Komiker im St. Annahof (Wien), an dessen Führung er sich eine Zeit lang beteiligte, und dem Ronacher. Am 2. Juli 1907 heiratete er die aus Vevey stammende Artistin Susanne Emilie Flückiger. Er spielte auch in einigen österreichischen Filmproduktionen mit, unter anderem in Charly, der Wunderaffe (1915, Regie: Joe May) und der Verfilmung des Hugo Bettauer-Romans Die Stadt ohne Juden. Berg flüchtete 1938 in die USA, wo er vom Verkauf von Papierwaren notdürftig lebte. Hin und wieder hatte er die Möglichkeit, Vorstellungen zu geben, wie im New Yorker Exilkabarett "Kabarett der Komiker". Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Wien 1949 war er unter anderem im Simpl engagiert und gab einige Gastspiele in Amsterdam und Zürich. Nachdem er keine weiteren Engagements hatte, zog er nochmals in die USA. Von 1954 bis zu seinem Tod lebte er wieder in Wien. Seine Grabstelle befindet sich auf dem Wiener Zentralfriedhof im neuen israelitischen Teil, Tor IV. Er wurde im Grab seiner 1918 verstorbenen Mutter beigesetzt. (Zitat)

        Vile Bodies

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1930. London: Chapman & Hall, 1930. First Edition. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket with some small chips, not affecting illustration or lettering and with very minor internal archival mends. An observant bibliographically inclined collector of our acquaintance, in comparing this example with another at hand, discovered subtle differences in the titles listed on the back panel. Both jackets were priced at the first edition?s issued price of 7/6 (in pre-paperback days, English publishers generally reduced prices quickly to 3/6), but one ends with Jeffery?s Second Choice, while this example lists Jeffery?s Miss Vell Intervenes and follows with Winder?s Sin-Offering. His research indicates that this would have logically followed the former. It can then be presumed that this is at least a second state of the dust jacket.

First Edition. &#39;With eight decorations by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and a foreword by Gordon Bottomley&#39;.

The dark poems, set in a sombre world of violence, were coolly received by the critics, and he was discouraged from publishing more for a number of years.

Bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

Illustrated with a photogravure of the author to frontispiece and two photogravure illustrations by John Hassall and Will Owen. William Pett Ridge (1859 - 1930), English author.

He founded the Babies Home at Hoxton in 1907 and was an ardent supporter of many organisations that had the welfare of children as their object. This charitable zeal, and the fact that he established himself as the leading novelist of London life and character, led to him being characterised as the natural successor of Dickens. Condition: In a paper vellum covered binding. Externally, generally smart but with slight bumping to extremities, slight handling marks and a slight stain to front boards. Internally, generally firmly bound although stained in places. Bright but with very slight foxing, almost entirely to plates. Overall: VERY GOOD.
