Book Description

Feb. 23 2011
Take a hundred-year excursion into the past when all your wishes and whims could be found within the pages of a Sears, Roebuck, & Co. catalogue. Whether you lived in Manhattan, New York, or Manhattan, Kansas, a new camera, a grand piano, and even the latest medical supplies were only a mail order away with your Sears catalogue. Florida Water, Liquid Skin, hammer-less revolvers, bankers’ shears, travelling bags, bridging telephones, and the Acme Triumph Six-Hole Steel Range (which was the “The Wonder of the Stove World” according to the ad copy) could all be had for reasonable prices.

In this compilation of the best collectibles from the 1905 through 1910 Sears catalogs, readers will find everything the early-twentieth-century American needed to outfit home, office, medicine chest, or craft workshop. A useful resource for artists, antiques dealers, and history buffs, this title is certain to make any reader feel nostalgic for simpler times. From the department introductions and the descriptions of Sears’s warehouses and factories to the hundreds of merchandise-filled pages, readers will find treasures on every page of Sears, Roebuck, & Co.: Best Collectibles from the 1905–1910 Catalogues.

I LOVED the content, but some images were too blurry. Surely they could have been improved. I'd like to have nother year also.

The production of this item was crude, it must have been a copy of a copy of a copy with resulting lack of clarity dan
1.0 out of 5 stars Not enough information Sept. 21 2013

I purchased this book as a fashion reference for the year 1905. I was hoping that, as stated in the description, that it would include pages from Sears catalogues from the past. It did not meet my expectation and I will consider returning it.
3.0 out of 5 stars More Gray-Scale July 22 2013
By Massamasa - Published on Amazon.com

This Catalog is just fine when I think about the goods it has. It is really interesting to compare the prices and funny to see how they told about the items those days. Everything was really superior. Well, the items manufactured those days were really well made when you compare them to today's products but some of them are clearly not so true.

I have many original old catalogs and some 70's reprints and I must say that the images were much nicer and much better those days. This catalog (as so many others) have too deep contrast and all the gray scales are missing. these images look too deep and too "hard". This makes them look some kind of blurry if you see what I mean. There should be other scales that white and black. These images look like the pen has had too much ink and the lines are blurry.

It has gobs on collectible stuff, nothing on every day things. There are other re-prints with it all, buy one of those!
