Here is a rare chance to obtain the extreme Rush holy grail - the original 1973 private label (Moon Records) issue of their first 45 rpm single, complete with the original drummer John Rutsey. Probably 500-1000 copies although opinions differ. Energetic, well-produced, kick-ass version of Buddy Holly tune. Strange that there's very little mention of this issue in documentaries, interviews and publications although the Moon label first lp is discussed freely. The rarest commercially issued Rush vinyl. Seldom offered and an absolute must for the Rush collector!

A true rarity and an unusual survivor. This item is an 1887 shipping agent's calendar or schedule which was posted in the shipping agent offices to advertise the dates of departure of the American Line United States Mail Steamers. The American Line was formed as the American Steamship Company in 1872, with the Pennsylvania Railroad Co being one of the original principals, and in 1884 the American Line was bought by the International Navigation Company of Philadelphia, owners of the Red Star Line. It still sailed under the American Line name and flag for years after. It also has berths for first and second class passengers. Departing each Wednesday from Liverpool to Philadelphia, this rare advertising piece also mentions the Pennsylvania Railroad. Printed by Griffith & Son, Birkenhead, this 14-1/2" x 10-3/4" schedule retains its bright colours and excellent graphics. We could not see a name on the ship, but it does resemble a postcard image identified as the British Princess, built in 1882. Most likely this calendar was displayed unframed originally. It has a fold line along the top, and it has been mounted with a teal coloured mat in a 19th period frame. This genuine period transportation survivor is in extremely good condition with no major staining, tears, foxing, damage or repairs other than the loss of about 1/4" trimmed from the right hand side, some darkening of the paper with age, and some loss to the upper right plaster on the frame. A fabulous addition for collectors of shipping, train and postal ephemera. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use. Expedited tracked and insured parcel shipping to the U.S. starts at $35 (other spots may vary, xpresspost is higher). Items paid with a credit card will be shipped to confirmed addresses only. We do ship internationally. All of our prices are in $US. PLEASE NOTE: we DO NOT accept PayPal, only VISA and MASTERCARD.
