Title   Charles & Co. Catalogue. May, 1937

Binding   Leatherette

Book Condition   Very Good

Publisher   New York 1937

Seller ID   006135

Attractive culinary catalogue from a prestigious high-end gourmet grocer in New York, one that began in 1848 and continued in business into the 1980s (when it was acquired by Red Apple.) 8vo. 21 by 14 cm. 319 pp. With 8 page supplemental brochure dated September, 1937. The catalogue proper has color plates on both endpapers and two other pages, and many other b/w photos and drawings of products throughout. The outstanding feature of the catalogue aesthetically, though, is its two toned binding, which is high Art Deco, with relief stylized lettering and an image of Hermes! Otherwise, the catalogue is a treasure trove of information on better food products and their pricing back in the 1930s. Condition: fore-edges have light foxing. A few light and minor stains on the binding.

Price = 75.00 USD
