SEARS, ROEBUCK AND COMPANY

General Catalogues

In date order.


07423-M1008EHAL- Catalogue- SEARS, ROEBUCK AND CO., Chicago, Ill., U.S.A. Catalogue No. 112, 1902. By this time the ”big book” was impressive to say the least, published in paper and hardback (50˘ and $1.00). This one is the big hardback. Richard Sears had problems with printers early on and by this time had moved his catalogue production in-house. They occupied and entire block bounded by Fulton, Desplaines, Wayman and Jefferson Streets. The engravings have been improved, paper is higher quality and merchandise selection is quite impressive. Faded place on front and front hinge slightly shaken. Some wear to bottom spine edge. Three pages in the curtains/rug area have been neatly razored out. In all other respects catalogue sits up square and clean and is in much better condition than many we get this old. There is only one page devoted to the electric belts in this catalogue. 9”x 11-3/4”x 1,088pp.  $239.00  Pictures
