Description
Crammed with 15,000 period illustrations and item descriptions, this thick book reproduces pages from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. mail-order catalogs for 190510, focusing in particular on items that today are highly collectible. From Florida Water, Liquid Skin, and hammerless revolvers to bankers' shears, bridging telephones, and the Acme Triumph Six-Hole Steel Range (the "The Wonder of the Stove World," according to the catalog), everything the early 20th-century American needed to outfit home, office, medicine chest, or craft workshop could be had by mail for reasonable prices. A useful reference for artists, antiques dealers, and history buffs as well as an entertaining and nostalgic read, the book also includes enthusiastic department introductions and descriptions of Sears' warehouses and factories.
