Photo of H. Leslie Parker.
Photographer - Marceau. New York, 1917.
Original signed of H. Leslie Parker... Who, one might ask, is H. Leslie Parker? Here's what's written in the back of
this 8.5 x 11.5" (image area) photo... "Parker, a Canadian, came to Wyo with the aspestos development on Casper Mtn.
The road up Casper Mtn. was called the Aspestos Rd. He married Dawn Flanery of Ky. He had the original locations on the
Big Muddy Oil Field between Casper and Glenrock. Parkerton was named for him. Parker was responsible for building the
Petr. Club in Denver. He died choking on a piece of meat at the Petr. Club in Denver. He died in about 1961."
THAT's who H. Leslie Parker was.
Sheet is a bit unevenly trimmed, though not effecting image area. Signature fresh and even. A charming signed photo
of a big noise in the oil business.

[Rene Gruau]. Paris/ Edfitions du Desastre/ 1983
A truly great poster... based on the image of one of the masters of 20th century fashion/design. Gruau was as good,
if not better at saying a lot with a minimal amount of lines that pretty much anyone else. "La Cigarette" is one of
the touchstones of modern design... even putting aside the fact it wasn't all that long ago that smoking was considered
a glamorous activity. 23.5 x 31.5".
Very small areas of creasing... upper right and lower right corners predominantly. NOT mounted. Ready to be framed and
hung on YOUR wall. The price reflects the "issues" of condition... pristine this is a $450 poster.

True Crime magazines... a variety of them... Great covers and startling content. Price listed below is really the

All have been read, but are all complete... the typical handling wear... from smoke free homes and never exposed to moisture.
