Headless horsemen, ugly witches, devils, and demons -- these frightful Halloween symbols have captured the imagination of young and old alike for generations. In the early decades of this century, though, not all images associated with this night of goblins and ghouls displayed sinister qualities -- as revealed in these delightfully lighthearted cards issued between 1900 and 1930.Bringing a fairy-tale quality to the holiday, these vintage cards (many with charming rhymes) recall the romantic nature of long-ago Halloweens with festive scenes of kids and cats, witches and bats, jack-o'-lanterns, fortune-telling, pranks, and white-sheeted ghosts.Exhibiting the meticulous detail so highly prized among today's collectors, the 24 full-color cards in this captivating collection include now-rare illustrations by two popular artists of the period: Ellen Clapsaddle (1865-1934) and Frances Brundage (1854-1937), whose rosy-cheeked and startled youngsters became their trademarks.Perfect for sharing warm thoughts of friendship during a magical night, these easily detachable cards are sure to please youngsters of all ages.
During the great era of postcard publishing (which dated from the 1890s until World War I) uncountable different designs for postcards were produced. Holidays were a favorite time to send postcards, and as Halloween was second only to Christmas as a sending occasion, an enormous number of cards were available. The imagery is varied, appealing, and dramatic. We present here some of our favorites from that time, and hope that we thus encourage a renewal of the happy custom of Halloween correspondence.

This collection of rare and vintage postcards offers a unique look at a vanished China and its storied capital. Comprising 355 black-and-white and hand-tinted Beijing photography postcards that span the period from the last years of Imperial China to the Japanese invasion of 1937, it is a treasure trove for buffs of Beijing history, collectors, Sinophiles, and anyone fascinated by people and cultures from times past. Readers will enjoy the wide selection of images showing different aspects of the life of old Peking--from the arrival of a camel train at a city gate to hand-colored views of the Forbidden City and an array of vendors, street performers, officials, gentry, commoners, and foreign tourists. Several chapters present the city's distinctive Beijing architecture--its walls and gates, towers, fountains, temples, pagodas, memorial arches, and public or imperial buildings, including the Summer and Winter Palaces and the Ming Tombs. Other chapters of Chinese photography look at the Manchu rulers, street life, the Legation Quarter and Western presence, and the Great Wall. Included are some rare scenes depicting the aftermath of the Boxer Rebellion and 1911 revolution; Manchu fashion, colorful means of transportation, and the coming of the railroad. Of particular note are images of the Empress Dowager, the child emperor Puyi, and other personalities at the Manchu Court. The book also includes eight color postcards of paintings by the famous artist Carl Wuttke and rare cards showing etched drawings of the Old Summer Palace--now only a field of ruins. The author, who was born and lived in China before 1949, has written an informative introduction to each chapter as well as a general introduction to classical Beijing. A foreword by historian and Beijing expert Susan Naquin situates this collection at once as a precious record of old Peking and a revealing snapshot of Western views of China in the first golden age of tourism. Old Beijing: Postcards from the Imperial City offers a visual time capsule of both Beijing's history and traditional Chinese culture in a unique and revealing postcard format.
