1 Union School Furniture Co. Sole Manufacturers of the "Automatic" or Self-Folding School Seats. . . . 1886 Illustrated Catalogue
Albany, NY 1886 First edition Wraps Good 
4to. 23.5 by 15 cm. 32 pp., plus wraps. Chairs, benches, desks, for students and teachers, along with theater seating, slat window shades, bells, weather vanes, Gifford's air-tight inkwell, Eckardt's Anatomical Charts and Dissected Manikin, blackboard and other school supplies. With testimonials from schools and figures on the cost of outfitting these schools with the company's furniture. Among the virtues touted for the furniture is the promotion of health, via better posture and thereby averting diseases of teh chest, lungs and eyes, and economy of space. Soiling of green wraps and small corner chip. Name stamp scattered about on cover and on many pages, with a few pages in which this person went amok in stamping his name. A few marginal pencil notes. Still, a very scarce and unusual trade catalogue, entirely legible and offering real insight on an aspect of pedagogic thinking during the late nineteenth century.
