Take a hundred-year excursion into the past, to a time when all your wishes and whims could be found within the pages of a Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalogue. Whether you lived in Manhatten, New York, or Manhatten, Kansas, a new camera, a grand piano and even the latest medical supplies were only a mail order away with your 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 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 1905 through to 1910 editions of Sears catalogues, readers will find everything the early 20th century American needed to outfit the 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' warehouses and factories to the hundreds of merchandise-filled pages, there are treasures on every page.
