Hello friends

I got a catalog again (at the moment I’m apparently a paper magnet). It’s in such good condition that I don’t know if it’s really original. It has 48 pages with title and spine.

 

What do you think?

Greetings from Germany

Steff,

It is a reproduction… the company that reprinted it has its name shown on the third picture you posted.

Hi Bert,

 

I agree. The side you are referring to is the back. There’s the dealer sticker on it.

Is there a distinction between a retail price list & the general catalog?

Yes there is, but most people would not see it.

The “Catalog” lists both the Wholesale and Retail prices, where as the Retail Price list is exactly just that.

The attached pictures are from a “catalog”

By “general catalog,” I meant the one for distribution to the public.  One showing wholesale prices I’d call a wholesale or jobbers catalog. 

So is what Steff has the catalog that would be sent to anyone writing in for one?  Sure looks different from pre-war catalogs.

The example catalogs I posted pictures of were available to the general public.  The Retail Price catalog style that Stefan has was introduced in the late 1930s.

Newest catalog I have is ’33 & I’ve been wanting to find a later one, ’35 to ’40.  When did use of the blue cover end?  Prefer an original, but will settle for a good repro, which excludes Cornell.  I have an extra ’29 to trade.

The 1934 catalog has the Blue cover, and the 1936 is Tan cover (no catalog was issued in 1935).
