AIS: "Novelty" as a Term of Description

From: HIPSource@aol.com

Neither do I. 

The term "novelty" "novelties" has an independent earlier history all of its 
own in AIS ---and abroad--- and was used in the 'Twenties and 'Thirties and 
probably for some time thereafter to designate the very newest introductions, 
as opposed to "standard" varieties which had been around for several years. 
These terms had precise time frames and it is all spelled out somewhere in 
one of the early AIS Bulletins--available from HIPS-- which someone can look 
up if they wish to know more specifics. Me, I'm basically in my yard today 
and only came in for a glassatee and a cookie.
