These old notepads are advertising the Capitol Lumber Co. of Boise Idaho. They were actually part of a monthly set, each booklet representing a month of the year with each page having three perforated sections for the days of the month. The inside cover has a calendar for the entire year of 1947. The nice part is that each pad has an illustration by Reinhold H. Palenske, an artist born in Chicago in the late 1800’s. March has; Heavy Seas with a ship on the high seas. April is called; A Real Performance with pheasant being flushed by a bird dog. May is; Up ’n Over with a horse and hound scene and June is; Yosemite with a beautiful scene of a horseback rider in front of the falls. Although the series isn’t complete and pages are missing inside, these miniature pieces of art are really nice.
Overall they measure about 3 1/4” by 6 1/8” with the etching size being about 2 ½” by 3 ¼”. The covers are all quite nice and three of them are complete but June has torn and missing days.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
