This cheery print paper was holding together some loose leaf releases, cheery print side down. Such a great surprise, and I still keep the paper to this day.
Not sure why the crocodile, dog, cat and fish are all hanging out together, but I like a print that balks at the food chain. Nom nom.
This is my all time favorite ad from a law journal:
House + airplane + pilot = amazing. This is why we tore down that wall, right? The joys of capitalism.
I hate to say it, but the Chinese law journals in our collection have really boring titles. They’re almost all called “Law Journal” or “The Law Journal” or “Journal of Law.” My Chinese coworkers agree. Needless to say, I have no idea which of the law journals this ad came from, but I bet I can guess the title with at least 75% accuracy.
Macmillan textbooks and I go way back, all the way to my speeling book in 2nd grade. These days, the textbook division is merged with McGraw Hill, but Macmillan still publishes fiction, etc. I wonder what the China Edition textbooks included. History? Ha! Reminds me of a rare book display of early American documents with famous signatures that the Law Library set out for a delegation from China. Our oldest items were from the late 18th century. The Chinese delegation laughed a bit, and rightly so. Although, it’s probably safe to assume that these were legal textbooks… just less fun to contemplate. Whatever the China Edition covered, enjoy the ad.
I’m no scholar of Asian languages, and I have no idea what this says (so forgive me if it’s something obscene), but I love it. Not enough food stuffs advertising in law journals.
One of my favorite things about discarding duplicate, unbound serial issues is finding vintage advertisements. I’m always surprised by who advertises in law journals. Here is an example from a Slovenian journal:
I wish I had taken note of the title, but I didn’t. No matter. Enjoy the art!
