Seller ID 005382
N.d., circa 1910 -- we would place this catalogue time-wise as shortly after the company was incorporated in 1905 -- the company traces its origins back to 1824. Oblong. 15.5 by 23 cm. 16 pp. Scarce catalogue of not just uniforms, but also badges, sleeve insignias, embroidered insignias, whistles, handcuffs, leather leggings and clubs. A few actual photos, which also help date the catalogue, and mostly illustrations which are a hybrid photo-based process, as typical of catalogues of the period. Pencil markings throughout -- we have chosen not to erase these, as some may contain useful information to a future owner. A large stain on the front wrap and the first two pages, and general darkening or soiling of the cover.
