1901 Montgomery Ward Mini Catalog

In Stock: 1
1901 Montgomery Ward Mini Catalog

This is Montgomery Ward's "Shopper's Primer," with selections from their new catalog (No. 70) dated September 1901. Small 20 page catalog (including front and back cover) measures 6¾" x 6".

Apparently, this was a small sample catalog enticing customers to order the larger one. The first page explains why they charge 15 cents for a catalog (because then only prospective buyers will get them, "thus preventing the enormous waste of expensive printed matter which has proved such a bugaboo to other houses"), and the second page notifies people that there will only be one catalog a year.

Still a wonderful little catalog that contains a small sample of furniture, sewing machines, shoes, the Windsor Steel Range, an Air-Tight Heater, an Automatic Revolver, the Windsor Washer, Mignon Dinner Set, Household Platform Scale, Madison Fountain Syringe, apron ginghams, LL sheetings, a Mackintosh coat, and the Windsor Organ.

Additionally, it still has the original stamped/addressed envelope the catalog was mailed in, the return envelope, the small order form (complete with a small envelope where you would insert your 15 cents, and a folded flyer with photos and short bios of the founders of Montgomery Ward.

Condition: Everything is in very nice condition. The catalog has a fold mark (it was folded to fit in the mailing envelope)
