Catalog Number 70 Our Samples Rooms on Paper C. M. McClung & Co. Exclusively Wholesale Hardware, stoves, supplies, plumbing goods, automobile accessories, and kindred lines
Knoxville Tennessee: C. M. McClung & Co. Inc. circa 1921. First Edition. lxi, 1030 pages. 3/4 leather spine over buckram cloth binding. Marbled page edges, plain blue endpapers. A well thumbed, and yet still sound copy. Includes color and black and white illustrations. Some pages include samples (see page 265 for example). A few leaves with paper damage where pasted in samples opposite have adhered and been separated. One leaf missing in pagination (267/8) where a sample page for Alabastine sanitary wall coatings was inserted (likely as published). Boards. A fascinating, massive catalog which importantly has a large section on Automotive accessories. Based on the type of automotive accessories offered, we've dated this catalog to circa 1921 (compatability with Ford cars). The automotive equipment department occupies pages 821-1030. Plumbing goods and mill supply 581-820. Hardware encompasses the balance (over 500 pages), with 180 pages devoted to tools, 34 to saddles, harness, carriage heaters, camp furniture, etc. 33 pages of padlocks and builders' hardware. 18 pages to paints, varnishes, oils, paint brushes, etc. Other sections include cutlery, queensware, appliances, sewing machines, bicycles, velocipedes, wire fencing. Guns, revolvers, cartridges, shells, hunting clothing, baseball & tennis supplies, and other sporting goods occupy pages 518-580. Scarce, with no copies in OCLC/Worldcat as of this writing. We note the Smithsonian catalog collection has a listing for this firm but it is unclear what catalog (s?) they have in their collection. Very Good.
