Reprint of Peter Henderson & Co. Catalogue of Tools and Implements, New York, 1898.

In 1898, Peter Henderson & Company published an abundantly illustrated trade catalog advertising tools, fertilizers, insecticides, and other essentials for the turn-of-the-century garden, farm, greenhouse, lawn, orchard, poultry yard, stable, and household. The comprehensive tools and implements catalog, with its nearly 700 line illustrations and descriptive captions, advertised such commonly used equipment as a one-horse disc harrow for $21; a string-tooth cultivator, $6.75; a corn sheller with feed table, $11.25; and a "Eureka Steam Cooker," capable of cooking a variety of food for 12 to 20 people, for $6.50.

This excellent reprint of an extremely rare volume also features a lice-killing machine, cast-iron field rollers, manure spreaders, broadcast seeders, corn harvesters and huskers, root cutters, grinding and cider mills, "Siamese" lawn sprinkler attachments, veterinary remedies, an "improved winged shovel plow," and hundreds of other items. Informative captions provide a detailed description of each product and its price.

Of interest to social historians, this intriguing book will also be indispensable to collectors and antique dealers, of immense value to artists and designers in search of permission-free images, and a delight to lovers of Americana.
