Author: Sears, Roebuck Company, Illustrated by: Color and B&W Illustrations
Sears, Roebuck and Co. Midsummer SALE Catalog, 1928

Publisher: Sears, Roebuck and Co. Philadelphia 1928.
Pale green paper wraps with bright colorful sale items pictured, including an "Autogas" gasoline range on the back cover (inside back cover advertises a lethal-looking coal oil stove at 35 dollars). This is NOT a reproduction - the original vintage catalog is in very good condition! How about those long bathing suits for women ..real silk stockings for men, children, and infants. Lots of fabrics, housewares, appliances, underwear, shoes (a couple of styles I wish they'd bring back!), electric fans (watch your fingers!), camping stuff, typefwriter, clocks, horse saddle and harness sets, horse-drawn farming equipment, furniture, AND the kitchen sink (well, self-contained cabinets and ice boxes). Prices are, of course, pretty unbelievable. This catalog in 9-1/4 by 7 inches, 124 pages plus covers. Covers have color illustrations both sides, and there are several color pages sprinkled throughout. A few small age spots and some mild edgewear to the cover, otherwise a very nice, clean, tight catalog without marks or damage.

Just a delightful little art deco-style promotional booklet for a product that was unusual at the time.

The front free endpaper has some light spotting, apparently from the metallic content of the cover ink, which has come through the paper in small spots.

Author: Reed, Henry E. (Compiler), Illustrated by: B&W Photos
Oregon: A Story of Progress and Development Together with an Account of the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition (etc)

Publisher: F.W. Galtes and Company (printer) Portland Oregon 1904.
White paper wraps illustrated with iconic human figures walking toward the sun, in an Art Nouveau style frame, title 'Oregon' in red. Rear cover illustrated with B&W photo of Portland Harbor in Wheat Shipping Season (sailing ships, stern wheel tug, etc.) 96 pages with many full-page B&W photos and other illustrations. This booklet was published in the year preceeding the Lewis & Clark Expo and is mainly a prospectus on the State of Oregon. It describes the major industrial, business, and agricultural pursuits and opportunities, shipping and transportation facilities, education, etc. Oregon was admitted to the Union in 1859 and although still a struggling frontier state, this Expo and this booklet were destined to bring Portland into the status of a metropolis and hub of international trade. The booklet describes each Oregon county in detail and provides a synopsis of other Western states, including Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, and Montana. Very scarce. CONDITION: The cover is a bit darkened in margins, with a couple of very small nicks in the fore edge. The rear cover has a short chipped tear and missing lower corner. Internally the book is quite clean and tight in the staples. WF 4278 First Edition Paperbound Very Good Condition 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall World's Fairs
