The Metal Agencies Company Limited, Bristol, Catalogue no. 86

£40.00

Product description

The Metal Agencies Co Ltd of Bristol, founded in 1894, was clearly a successful business, since this 86th catalogue marked the 60th year since its foundation. In some years, there must have been more than one edition issued. The book is substantial, containing 1294 pages, most of them of heavy-gauge shiny paper, with a section at the front in colour depicting the company showrooms, and contains details and prices of a huge variety of products, summarised in the contents list under 30 different headings. It is thus a fascinating resource for anyone interested in the history of both domestic and industrial products.

Our copy is in good general condition, bound in dark green textured cloth with the company's initials and logo on the front in gilt, and the initials and catalogue number in gilt on the spine. The exterior shows few signs of age - just some slight bumping of corners and a little shelf wear to top & tail of the spine. Text block edges slightly grubby. Inside, the binding is firm apart from a slight weakness at the back cover angle (back fep slightly split, but not so badly that the webbing is visible). All pages are clean and clear, and green silk page marker present and intact.
