Yesterday's Shopping: The Army and Navy Stores Catalogue 1907

£19.95 Out Of Stock

Product description

A 1980 facsimile edition of the Army & Navy Co-operative Society's 1907 issue of 'Rules of the Society and Price List of Articles Sold at the Stores', a very substantial mail order catalogue. This fascinating heavyweight book is a wonderful collection of Edwardian furniture, hardware, household equipment, clothing or food in use in the British Isles at the turn of the century with illustrations and prices. The edition comes with a introduction by Alison Adburgham, who describes the catalogue as 'peering into the trivia of domestic Edwardian lives'.
The dustjacket of the edition is in good condition with only some fading to the spine and a few light indentations and minor creases. The rest of the book is in good condition. The cloth hardboards of the cover are dirt free and have only minor rubbing to the corners and edges. The gilt lettering to the spine is clear, however as the book is so heavy the spine is loose from the body. The inside pages are in excellent condition, however there are some marks to the outside edges of the body and a few small creases to a corner. This book is a must for any collectors of antiques and historic pieces from the Edwardian era.
