This catalogue is never going to win a beauty contest, but it more than makes up for it in scarcity. Not much can be found about A. L. Dyke except that he was known for his fireworks which were also part of his inventory of cigars, tobacco, confectionery and stationery. Oh, and "mottoes and letters of any design could be furnished on short notice". But he seems to have loved "fire works of every description" a lot. He has listed and priced Roman candles, sky rockets, colored candles, short stick rockets, meteor candles, parachute rockets, floral bomb shells, parachute rockets, union candles, pearl or meteor rockets, vertical wheels, triangles, rosetts, luminetts, fire works balloons, paper balloons with attachments for firing, torpedoes, cannon crackers, fire crackers, and more. Dyke was located at 147 Howard Street, Akron. Catalogue measures 9-1/4" x 12-1/4" and consists of a two page spread inside. Very rare. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
