Catalogue & Buyer's Guide #57: Montgomery Ward Catalogue of 1895 by Montgomery Ward &. Co
Catalogue & Buyer's Guide #57: Montgomery Ward Catalogue of 1895

Magdalene, December 17, 2009

Too many of what claim to be 'reproduction' catalogues today turn out to be a mishmash from different catalogues randomly thrown together, haphazardly abridged and printed on the cheapest newsprint they can find.

Fortunately this is *not* the case with this delightful _unabridged_ Dover edition of Montgomery Ward's 1895 Spring/Summer Catalogue and Buyer's Guide.

Printed on quality stock, it is as much a delight for the casual reader, as it is a formidable research tool for historical archivist, costume designer or antiques dealer. It gives all who read it a window through which each can peer back through the years and glimpse what life was like at the turn of the last century.
