Trade catalogs collection.

The Trade Catalogs collection consists of over 8,000 printed items varying in size from small pamphlets to multipart volumes that date from the early 19th century to the mid-20th century. The manufacturing companies represented in the collection are primarily American, the bulk being from New England and the Mid-Atlantic; a small number of Western European companies are also included. The catalogs list products ranging from domestic wares to industrial equipment and often include prices and illustrations; some catalogs also contain information about the manufacturers.
