These three photographs were in old frames. they ae all between 6 1/2 and 7 inches wide and between 9 and 9 1/2 inches high. There is some damage around the edges (chips, etc.) and the darker one of the soldier sitting has a crease in the left side, a split at the top.. They are somewhat brittle. Most of these defects can be seen in the scans. I am not sure but I think these may be from the World War I era.

This is an advance proof of Murray B. Levin's interesting study of the 1962 campaign in Massachusetts in which Edward M. Kennedy, then a totally inexperienced candidate barely eligible by age to serve in the United States Senate, defeated an experienced State Attorney General, also from a powerful political family. This is "an uncorrected proof" with final revisions yet to be made. The text shows some editing had already been done as there are excisions and paste-ins...

Fine quality absinthe spoon, Les Carrés #10, circa 1900 with the maker’s poinçon or mark on the back of the handle (the mark, however, is struck poorly so it is difficult to read). These spoons were placed over a glass with a sugar cube on top, and the water was poured over the cube to reduce the bitterness of the absinthe. This is guaranteed to be a period absinthe spoon from a French bar; it is not one of the many reproductions which are being sold on the Internet. It is in excellent cond...

This is guaranteed to be a period absinthe spoon from a French bar; it is not one of the many reproductions which are being sold on the Internet.
