Laminated wrappers, 8vo, xxiii, 422 pp. "Widely recognized as the standard bibliography on the subject, this book represents not only the first general listing of American trade catalogs but one of the best and clearest pictures of commercial development during the 19th century. Among the more than 60 categories covered are automobiles, books and booksellers (including Benjamin Franklin's 1744 catalog of books), clocks and watches, dental instruments, firearms, glassware, house furnishings, horse goods, jewelry, livestock, marine hardware and supplies, drugs and medicine, musical instruments, railroad equipment, silverware, furniture, clothes, toys, undertakers' equipment, washing machines, weathervanes and much more. Following a brief and often delightful introduction to each category the author then lists the relevant catalogs. Each entry includes the current location of the catalog (in libraries, universities and other institutions) as well as date of publication, size, number of pages, and other data." - from the blurb.
