Montgomery Ward & Co. Catalogue and Buyers' Gui...

'Our mail order methods meet many wants,' wrote a poetic but anonymous copywriter on a page of the 1895 Montgomery Ward & Co. catalogue. He had a gift for understatement. At its zenith from the 1880s to the 1940s, Montgomery Ward, like its cross-town Chicago rival, Sears, sold virtually everything the average American could think of or desire—and by mail. This was a revolution, and Ward's fired the first shot. To buy spittoons, books of gospel hymns, hat pins, rifles, wagons, violins, birdcages, or portable bathtubs, purchases that used to require many separate trips to specialist merchants, suddenly all the American shopper had to do was lick a stamp. This unabridged facsimile of the retail giant's 1895 catalogue showcases some 25,000 items, from the necessities of life (flour, shirts) to products whose time has passed (ear trumpets). It is an important resource for antiquaries, students of Americana, writers of historical fiction, and anyone who wants to know how much his great-grandfather paid for his suspenders. It is a true record of an era.

Houses by Mail: A Guide to Houses from Sears, R...
38,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It was the American Dream by Mail Order — Smithsonian Americans have ordered from Sears, Roebuck just about everything they have needed for their homes for 100 years— but from 1908 to 1940, some 100,000 people also purchased their houses from this mail-order wizard. Sears ready-to-assemble houses were ordered by mail and shipped by rail wherever a boxcar or two could pull in to unload the meticulously precut lumber and all the materials needed to build an exceptionally sturdy and well-designed house. From Philadelphia, Pa., to Coldwater, Kans., and Cowley, Wyo., Sears put its guarantee on quality bungalows, colonials and Cape Cods, all with the latest modern conveniences— such as indoor plumbing. Houses by Mail tells the story of these precut houses and provides for the first time an incomparable guide to identifying Sears houses across the country. Arranged for easy identification in 15 sections by roof type, the book features nearly 450 house models with more than 800 illustrations, including drawings of the houses and floor plans. Because the Sears houses were built to last, thousands remain today to be discovered and restored. Houses by Mail shows how to return them to their original charm while it documents a highly successful business enterprise that embodied the spirit and domestic design of its time. ' After decades of obscurity, Sears houses have become chic.' — Wall Street Journal ' These were … spacious, solidly built homes.' — Parade ' Don’ t be surprised if your own cozy bungalow turns up [in the book].' — Philadelphia Inquirer ' A nostalgic and informative look at the tastes of Americans in the years beforeWorld War II.' — Publishers Weekly ' The bible to researchers of Sears’ ready-cut homes.' — Saturday Evening Post
