Library Bureau Library Supplies Catalog 1942

By: N/A

Price: $30.00

Quantity: 1 available


A beautiful catalog enhanced by samples of various mending papers and cloth for book repair tipped in. It's clean as a whistle with no spine crease and measures 8-1/2"x11" with 96 pages printed on coated paper. One small, flat creas to lower fron corner.There is no date, but a bit of detective work places it precisely at 1942. Its advertising boasts 60 years experience and the company became Library Bureau (formerly Readers & Writers Economy Co. started by Melville Dewey, one of the founders of the ALA) in 1882 which brings it to 1942. The second clue was the order blanks tipped in at back. The buyer could send the order to any number of branches with address provided for each, none of which had even the two digit postal code. The postal code system did not debut until 1943. The catalog is beautifully illustrated with all manner of lovely, obsolete library items replete with prices and descriptions. If you love library stuff, this one is very special.
