The Book of Better Business for 1918

Jamestown: Art Metal Construction Co., 1918. Item #013533

Trade catalog for this manufacturer of metal and wooden office equipment and furniture, in business from 1888 to 1970. Still the waning years of the era of the roll-top desk; basically most of the supplies sold here replaced that desk, which was no longer able to contain the office or company information. The big seller is the metal file cabinet (70 of 100 pp.), followed by metal shelving, desks, chairs, and other furniture. Incidentally, the company's logo looks to be about 30 years ahead of its time. 1918 edition. 28 cm; 104 pp.; illustrated from photographs and drawings. Light soiling and creasing to wrappers; else a very good copy in embossed wrappers.

Price: $125.00
