13 (Saperstein, Abe) Abe Saperstein And The Globetrotters
1962 First Edition 
Very good. This is an international scrapbook made by a Cub Scout c. 1961. There are 12 glossy 8 x 10" captioned publicity photograps of Abe Saperstein and / or the Globetrotters. Abe Saperstein packing for a trip; Saperstein looking out at rice fields in Singapore; Meadowlark Lemon holding three basketball, towering over Saperstein who holds only one; Sapersein adding a trophy to his trophy cabinet; Meadowlark Lemon, TV star Ed Sullivan and Saperstein watching a Czech folk dancer; Saperstein standing with large suitcase; Saperstein viewing a giant floral clock in Geneva; Saperstein at League of Nations Building; two shots of Saperstsein and Prince Philip (UK) , one holding a basketball and another meeting two Globetrotter players in uniforms; several duplicates. Sixteen 11 x 13" posters, once folded and tipped to scrapbook pages, announcing Globetrotter appearances in various countries (Rumania, Havana, Port of Spain, South America, England, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, North Africa, Middle East, etc). Most of these posters show pictures of press clippings, often in foreign languages, raving about the team, along with photos of the team or its stars in action, Some just show clippings, with Saperstein or members of the team, but without mentioning a country. One boasts of having visited 69 countries. There is also a 5 x 8" color poster for an appearance in the UK. The posters have been tipped in by tape, which has browned, but is mostly visible on the versos and barely visible, if at all, on the design side of the posters. Each is folded once to fit into the scrapbook. At the front and in the rear of the scrapbook are sections of newspaper clippings, all aged but none fragile, many folded. These clippings are both domestic and international.

This collection of Tiang oral literature is part of the material recorded on three field trips to Djaul, an island eight miles off the west coast of New Ireland. There were about 800 Tiang speakers at the time of collection (circa 1972) , all living in five villages and numerous hamlets at the southeast end of the island. Tiang is related to languages on mainland N. I. But is only spoken on Djaul. ... The old Tiang believe firmly in the potency of their magic lore and in fact have declined to record some especially reliable items related to fishing." ; Volume 39 Papua Pocket Poets; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 38 pp
