About this Item

A beautiful catalog enhanced by samples of various mending papers and cloth for book repair tipped in. It's clean as a whistle with no spine crease and measures 8-1/2"x11" with 96 pages printed on coated paper. One small, flat creas to lower fron corner.There is no date, but a bit of detective work places it precisely at 1942. Its advertising boasts 60 years experience and the company became Library Bureau (formerly Readers & Writers Economy Co. started by Melville Dewey, one of the founders of the ALA) in 1882 which brings it to 1942. The second clue was the order blanks tipped in at back. The buyer could send the order to any number of branches with address provided for each, none of which had even the two digit postal code. The postal code system did not debut until 1943. The catalog is beautifully illustrated with all manner of lovely, obsolete library items replete with prices and descriptions. If you love library stuff, this one is very special. Bookseller Inventory # 20725

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
