FANTASTIC, ORIGINAL 1891 HENRY C. SQUIRES ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE OF SPORTSMEN'S SUPPLIES. This terrific 19th century catalog was published by Henry C. Squires, New York.Lavishly illustrated folio contains over 200 pages jam packed with artist renderings, detailed descriptions and prices for every imaginable article coveted by the sportsman and outdoor enthusiast of the Victorian Era. Heavy emphasis on hunting and fishing withother actitives also well represented. Early volume is one of those rare gems that should be seen to be fully appreciated.Book is as much a work of art as it is a trade catalog.Complete title reads: "Descriptive Catalogue and Price-List of Sportsmen's Supplies including fine breech-loading hammer and hammerless guns - ammunition for all varieties of fire arms - fishing tackle - camping outfits - boats - canoes - steam launches - cruisers - dog furnishings - sportsmen's books, and everything Forest, Field, and Stream with many illustrations by the most eminent and well-known artists in America"."Price-list is here prepared for the perusal and benefit of those who, it is assumed, having given little or no thought to out-door sports, desire infortmation. It is a fact that there has been a great advance in this direction of late years by the intelligent and thrifty poortion of our countrymen, and a disposition is shown on all hands to separate the healthful and innocent pastimes of the field and stream and forest from every thing degrading and contaminating. It is assumed, also, that it is not entirely the prices of the articles they need for which the seeker after health or pleasure is looking, but hints as to what they need and why they need them. I have endeavored to give, in these pages, information of a practical nature, as well as descriptions of articles needed and prices of the same, so that all who, for any reason, have occasion to use Firearms, Fishing Tackle, or Camping Goods, can have an intelligent knowledge of what is best suited to their particular wants. My stock will be found much larger and more varied than ever before. It has been my constant study to add thereto every article that will in any way contribute to the comfort or pleasure of the sportsman" [Preface].Condition: Rare book remains in goodto faircondition [see images].
