These two posters are advertisements for events, the first a play and the second a charity event.   "Nothing But The Truth" appears to be the play based on novel of the same name by Frederic S. Isham. The play is a comedy about a stockbroker who must tell the truth for a whole day. The illustration accompanying the poster appears to be the logo for the performers, 'Parish Players', as the eyes are two 'P's. Measures 18 3/4" x 14" "Tulip Tea" is a poster advertising a benefit hosted for the Branford Visiting Nurse Association in May 1925. Tickets were 35 cents each, and there was food, candy, dolls, baskets, toys, and a picture gallery. The poster itself has two whimsical renditions of tulips on either side of the text, in color (red, yellow, orange, and green). The title of the poster, Tulip Tea, is done in a gradient of red, yellow and orange. There are pencil marks seen beneath the text and drawing and was obviously used as a guide for the design.  Measures 22" x 14".. The 'Tulip Tea' poster has a tear on the bottom right corner, approximately 3". As well as 4 small pin holes from when it was displayed. "Nothing but the Truth" has one pin hole at the top center. Minor toning/ fading due to age/light damage.

Albert Schiller Schriften-Schatz, Eine Sammlung Praktischer Alphabete Für Berufszeige Aller Art (Fonts Treasure, a collection of Practical Alphabets for Professional Branches of All Kinds). Otto Maier.Ravensburg, Germany.ca 1890
A print makers book of focusing on a variety of different fonts. Printed in German, the pages are individual loose leafs. The folio of book is green with a wonderfully designed cover pasted on. There are various floral and sculpture elements in the design. This book features 80 plates, though only 58 different fonts as often times a single font carries over several leaves. The fonts themselves are amazing in their diversity, some were flourishes, some fanciful, others more modern or art deco looking. They are printed in black, red, green, and gold, and sometimes uses combinations of those colors. Along with the plates is an introduction page (that on the reverse has a Table of contents indexed by the type of font: Roman, Gothisch, Fraktur, Script, Free fonts, Initials, Foreign Language Alphabets, and Digits etc.), an instructional page, and a circular with testimonials. This set has a total of 80 plates in it. What makes this book confusing though is that the Table of Contents, as well as the plates themselves have a several printing errors on the numbering of said plates. For some reason plates 1 - 8, have been labeled on the plate itself as 81 - 88. However since the title of each font has been printed on each page, one can cross reference with the table of contents and clearly see that plate 81 is plate 1, and so on. Additionally, plate 35, is misprinted in the Table of Contents as plate 85. Lastly this book is missing plate 6 (aka 86), which is the font Zierschrift (schattiert), gross Alph.  Measures 12 3/4" x 8 3/4". To view additional images click: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qbegn7plIIO6Y3K82. The cover shows wear, mainly soiling due to age. There are some small section of missing surface litho towards the top right corner. The folio itself shows some very minor rubbing to the edges. The instructional and circular pages show edge wear as they are printed on a thinner paper then the rest. There is a small stain on the bottom right corner of plate 71, but it does not affect the font shown.
