    VINTAGE TRAVEL POSTERS 2016
    It is with great pleasure that we are able to offer for sale one of the best collections of Travel posters we have had to date. This will be the tenth Annual Travel Posters exhibition and we hope you will find these as enjoyable as we do.
    We have another Imperial Airways poster (item 1) this year to spearhead the catalogue. The poster is all about luxury travel in the 30s.
    One of the most striking posters we have is by Edward Bawden titled “British Empire Exhibition.” (item 7). The level of detail is extraordinary and it was designed to be a great advertisement for all the goods and services provided by the Empire.
    We also have a wonderful collection of Norwegian Travel Posters (items 18-24) as well as some attractive Swiss posters (items 54-60). The Gstaad poster (item 60) dated 1924 is the earliest we have seen advertising this popular resort.
    There is a fun Hawaii poster (item 81) depicting a group of friends surfing a giant wave on a canoe which is a great image.
    We also have a very rare poster from Ceylon (item 91) advertising trips to Europe and the Colourful Orient.
    The catalogue concludes with an impressive Australian poster (item 96) showing the tallest trees in the British Empire as of 1935.
    An exhibition will take place in the Gallery
    from Friday 11th November – Friday 2nd December 2016.

    The books in the first part of this catalog represent a selection from the collection of Kate Stettner Lobell and Carl D. Lobell of New York City. They are perhaps best known as collectors of important American art, as well as donors of some of that art to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (where Carl is a Benefactor), the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Museum of American Folk Art, and the Brooklyn Museum. However, in their spare time, Kate and Carl have managed to compile a collection of excellent literary first editions.

    What distinguishes the collection is that they bought solely to their own taste. The books they have collected conform to no one else’s list of what was or is excellent or important, but fully reflect their own interests and enthusiasms. While many of the titles are well-known and sought after, and in very nice collector’s condition, all of that seemed, at least from our vantage point, as only incidental to their enjoyable pursuit of their own idiosyncratic interests. Their enjoyment of the collecting process was genuine and infectious.

    Now the time has come to release some of the books that they’ve harvested back into the wild, and we are pleased to be able to facilitate that process.
