Rare, with no other copies located online. Here is a very nice and well-illustrated catalogue of the 1907 automobiles produced by the fine automaker Rochet & Schneider in France. In addition, the catalogue includes an overview about the company itself, with a good number of photos of the workers in the company factory, and explains about the automobiles themselves with photos of the engines, chassis, and parts. Then 10 different models are featured, each one on its own page. The catalogue's title page mentions the International Exposition, and Rochet & Schneider were located at Stand Number 44, so presumably this catalogue was handed out to prospective buyers at the International Exposition that year. On the title page is a photo of the company's workers walking under the opening gateway to the company. There are ten photos of inside views of the factory workers in different areas of the company, with a brief preface about the company itself. Then there's a section that describes the chassis, with views of motors and chasses. Displayed are the 16 HP, 20 HP, 30 HP, and 40 HP motors (moteurs--the text all throughout is in French). This includes pages with specs, or details about the chasses, with views of the chasses used for vehicles of 16, 20, 30, 40, 45, and 70 HP, again with specs provided for 4- and 6- cylinder engines. The photos of the models are beautiful full-page depictions, and here we see the Coupe 3/4, Landaulet 3/4, Coupe Forme Dorsay, Petite Limousine Forme Ronde, Limousine, Landaulet-Limousine, Coupe-Berline, Grande Limousine, Double-Phaeton Avec Dais Forme Cab, and Double-Phaeton Avec Capote. The entire catalogue runs 34 pages and it measures 6 inches by 9 1/2 inches (oblong). The pages are in clean, Very Good condition with no markings. The cover, however, has foxing and soiling, as well as two light stampmarks / postmarks on it--one for what appears to be the auto agency, and the other for the International Exposition, which appears to have been in Madrid. There is also a vertical crease in the middle of the covers both back and front, as though someone might have folded the catalogue in half a long time ago. So the cover is in good condition only, with signs of wear and handling. This catalogue is RARE, I am unable to find other copies available online or in any library holdings on OCLC.
