1940 Stevens Rifles & Shotguns Catalog No. 40 (with letter and price list)
1 1940 Stevens Rifles & Shotguns Catalog No. 40 (with letter and price list)
Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts Stevens Arms Company 1940 soft cover Catalog No. 40 
Crisp clean catalog which defies its age and also comes with the original price list and a letter from the company directed to the consumer. There is no date, but it details its use of a product called Tenite which debuted in the 1940's. As the war escalated Tenite kept sporting goods on the market while wood was held for miltiary guns. The catalog measures 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" with 30 pages. Not often seen.

Albert Amor LTD Summer Exhibition 2003
3 Albert Amor LTD Summer Exhibition 2003
London, U.K. Albert Amor LTD 2003 Summer Exhibition Card cover fine condition 
This crisp and clean catalog was the vehicle to disperse a 30 year collection during the summer of 2003. There were 55 pieces of very old English tableware, many painted in color enamels. One of the most interesting items of the collection though is the one on the cover. It's called an etui and it contains a gold fruit knife, scissors, an ivory notecard, a snuff spoon/needle and pincers. The date is circa 1755.

Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
4 Aldens Fall and Winter 1951-52 Catalog
Chicago Aldens 1951 Autumn and Winter 1951-52 Soft cover Good condition 
I wish the previous owner hadn't used the front cover as a scratch pad to see how much it would cost to buy two items. I wish even more that he or she had tried to erase it, maybe because the answer is wrong! Anyway this is a very nice catalog. I don't know this company and have never seen one of their catalogs, but I very much like the size which is easily handled at 5-1/2" x 9-1/2". The catalog has a whopping 972 pages of fashions for the whole family, toys, jewelry, engagement rings, household items, furniture, guns, shoes, typewriters and much more. This is a complete immersion into material culture at the beginning of the 50's -- 65 years ago. The order blank is still inside and has not been used. Only other fault is creasing to lower corners both front and back, but both have been discretely taped for strength.

American Decorative Flower Co. Inc. 1939 Ribbon Sample Book
5 American Decorative Flower Co. Inc. 1939 Ribbon Sample Book
Baltimore, Maryland American Decorative Flower Co, 1939 soft cover Very good 
Very nice clean catalog showcasing the ribbons available in 1939 from the company --all 30 samples intact with available colors listed under each swatch. The catalog measures 8" high and 9-1/2" wide and has five pages of samples. It was geared to the florist trade, so other items mentioned include flowerpot covers, corsage pins, corsage boxes, cut flower boxes, chiffon, gold or silver cord, rubberized shoulder and wrist shields, and green florists' thread. Very nice!

Atwater Radio Catalog 1927 / Atwater Kent Radio Log (1929)
6 Atwater Radio Catalog 1927 / Atwater Kent Radio Log (1929)
Philadelphia Atwater Kent Manufacturing Company 1927 Soft cover Good 
These two Atwater Kent items came together so, as always, I kept them that way. The catalog isn't perfect, but is tightly bound and clean. Defects include vertical crease on all pages and cover, but I have ironed it flat and put it in the book press. There's a also a tiny corner missing to lower front cover, a part of mailing label on front has been removed, there's a few faint pencil marks on back, and evidence that something was once pasted on top edge of a two page spread (see photo). The radio card log is interesting -- it's completely filled in on both sides and dated 12-25-29.

7 Baird-North Facsimile 1913 Catalog Diamonds Watches Jewelry Silverware
Des Moines, Iowa Wallace-Homestead Book Company 1992 Facsimile Reprint soft cover Fine condition 
Crisp clean catalog with only fault being a small name sticker to upper front corner of first page. Otherwise without fault. The Baird-North Company operated from Providence, Rhode Island where they sold diamonds, watches, jewelry and silverware. This catalog, a facsimile reprint, is spectacular with much product, many saturated pictures, and accompanied by descriptions. Catalog measures 7" x 10" and has 200 pages. An original is scarce and would price in three figures.

Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After
8 Bathrooms Kitchens and Heating After "V" Day By Crane Co. (1940's Relevant Ephemnera Laid-in)
Chicago, Illinois Crane Company 1940's Soft cover Fine condition 
This is more dream book than working catalog because it was printed while WWII raged on. The Crane Company knew there would be no building or remodeling until after Victory Day, but they also knew that people had stockpiled lots of war bonds for later. It was a good move because it sparked both creativity and interest while consumers waited. The booklet is filled with kitchens, baths, and heating and plumbing items. It measures 8-1/4" x 11" and has 21 colorful pages with only a few in black and white. Also laid-in is a booklet of the same size which shows many choices in various categories. Each item is drawn and has a little box to check your favorites. The previous owner has checked them in pencil, but I left it because it's fun to see what items appealed. You can erase if desired.

9 Beautiful Premiums For B&W Coupons Catalog No. 20, 1942
Louisville, Kentucky Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corporation 1942 soft cover Very Good condition 
This is a small catalog with lots of eye appeal. It measures just 3-1/4" x 6" with 60 pages, all illustrated in full color. Aside from a small crease to upper back corner it's in excellent condition with no fault of note. All you had to do was buy cigarettes, hang on to the coupons, and trade them in for something in the catalog -- and what an array of items! There are of course smoking accessories, but there's also household items including furniture, games and books, umbrellas, luggage, baby items, fishing gear and clothes for men etc.

Cincinnati, Ohio Peck-Williams Foundry Company 1900-1911 soft cover Very Good 
No date on this attractive illustrated catalog, but research shows it's between 1900 when the foundry opened its doors and 1911 when it merged with five other heating supply companies.

Build Beauty, Economy, Permanence into your Home with Curtis Woodwork (1944)
13 Build Beauty, Economy, Permanence into your Home with Curtis Woodwork (1944)
Clinton. Iowa Curtis Woodwork 1944 Soft Cover Fine Condition 
I love when a nice ephemera item is hiding extras on the same subject. I bought the main booklet and -- surprise! -- I got two extra small booklets about kitchens and entrances and a letter from the company. Home builders knew that after the war there would be many people, especially veterans, yearning for a home of their own. The building trade started early to feed the pent-up desire, but by the time this advertising came out the end of the war was only a year away -- 1945. The yellow pamphlets measures 3-1/2" x 6-1/4". The large booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 15 pages covering windows, exterior doors, interior doors, built-in china cabinets, stairways, fireplace mantels, and kitchen cupboards. All items mentioned are included.

Burroughs Wellcome & Company Price List of Fine Products 1944-1945 (pharmaceuticals)
14 Burroughs Wellcome & Company Price List of Fine Products 1944-1945 (pharmaceuticals)
New York Burroughs Welcome Co. 1944 Hard cover Very good No DJ, as issued 
Once again, we have a hard cover book which qualifies as ephemera because it was meant to be a followed up later with new prices and products. This slim volume covers an array of pharmaceuticals from Acedtophenetidin to Zinc Sulfanilate ointment. Illustrated with full page black and white photographs. All narcotic items are noted and were to be ordered only with an accompanying federal form. Book measures 5-1/2"x9" and has 96 pages. Only fault is crease to outer lower front corner.

Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
15 Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
Dayton, Ohio E.F. MacDonald Company 1962 soft cover Very Good 
This oversized catalogue is a monument to 60's clothing for men, women and children. It's clean as a whistle inside and out and measures 12" square. The photography is much more interesting than usual, as in addition to the regular shots of models, there are many large full color plates of vignettes where people are modeling the clothes against colorful backgrounds. Initially I thought this was a retail outlet, but it is not. E.F. MacDonald was an incentive company associated most commonly with Plaid Stamps. This catalog, however, makes no reference to stamps. Each item bears a number, but there are no prices and no stamp requirements stated. It seems likely that there must have been a correlating sheet laid-in with info telling how many books of stamps were needed. Unpaginated, but I counted 31.

Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
17 Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
Cleveland, Ohio Cowell & Hubbard Unknown (Presumed 80's) Unknown Card cover Very good condition 
The cover of this trade catalog presented by Cowell and Hubbard, Cleveland, Ohio's premiere jewelry store from 1861. It looks like the title box is falling off and the cover is wrinkled. But, no! It's flat and smooth -- the design tricked the eye. What also makes this catalog so interesting is the pairing of expensive fine jewelry with couture clothing designed by Bill Blass, Adele Simpson, Ralph Lauren and others. Catalog measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 72 pages. There's also an order blank which folds into an envelope -- unused. Unfortunately, there is no date and no clues. I came to the conclusion that it might be from the 80's because of a long sleeved wedding dress with a hat.

Very nice clean trade catalog measuring 4-1/2"x 5-1/2" with 714 beautifully illustrated pages. Pages and green-inked page edges (as per design on all three sides) are pristine. Many products are pictured and described, but there are also full page photographs of the interior of the plant. It's a most unusual trade catalog for this small size and its depth of information. The company is still noted for its contribution to electronics.

Durrell Armstrong's Player Piano Co. Inc. 1991-1992 Catalog
19 Durrell Armstrong's Player Piano Co. Inc. 1991-1992 Catalog
Wichita, Kansas Player Piano Company Inc. 1991 1991-1992 Catalog Soft cover Very good condition 
This is a remarkable trade catalog which confines itself to all things player piano, but if you have one, or want one, this is fun to read. Right on the front cover Armstrong says he has "the lagest selection of player piano parts and accessories in the world" It sure looks possible!The first section displays such things as bellows cloth, lubricants, punches, gaskets, leather and ward washers, suction units and much, much more. The second section is all about those music rolls, but not all of them are vintage. Well, they are now because the newest songs are from the late 80's! Also included is an unused order blank. Catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 112 pages.
