Publisher New York Josiah Partridge & Sons Company, Inc. 1922
Seller ID 006163
8vo. 23 by 15 cm. 29 pp. Pitches eleven different styles of theater seats. Seating could be veneer, caned, saddle, tapestry, overstuffed, hard, upholstered, velour, birch, oak, slip seat, etc. (These attributes are not mutually exclusive, of course.) The company also offered to customize the seating based on one of these designs. The over-riding pitch was that "their perfect alignment and the open spaces around them facilitate cleaning and insure free circulation of air". The Partridge Company manufactured all kinds of seating -- this here was just a segment of their business, and we don't know how important a segment it was, nor how successful the company was in marketing its seating to theater owners. Condition: Front blank page is soiled. Otherwise, light wear, occasional soiling.
