Take Ivy Arrives

Weighing in at just over a pound and measuring 9 3/4" x 7 1/4" Not what you'd call a coffee table book.

Thanks to Heavy Tweed Jacket, I learned this is the 1973 edition.

And thanks to Michael Williams of ACL and total but kind Japanese strangers, my copy of "Take Ivy" arrived over the weekend. While I was out of town. Late Sunday night I was surprised to see such a small package. I thought it would be huge for the money it was going for.
Heavy Tweed Jacket translated the page above:

You have HTJ's email address? I am impressed.

Congrats on the book.

tintin said...

Yeah but you have Chop's email.

Chops is easy to reach thru the MBs. HTJ is a true man of mystery.

Anyway, Chops doesn't come around anymore. I wish he'd send me some more pictures. People liked his pictures.

These images are awesome. Thanks for uploading. Any idea when/where they're from?

Today is August 10, 2009. There is just listed a pair of the older style Florsheim Yumas from the 1999 reincarnation in Burgundy.

Just listed on eBay, that is.

AdMaster said...

Oh, size 9 on those Yumas, BTW.

AdMaster- Good to see you. Those are the new (2009) Florsheims and not 1999. The "Made in India" gives it away.
