Meriden catalog "based on a photocopy provided by Bill Evans," circa 1918. Pages 55-223 of the volume; catalog pages themselves p. 1-170, and appears to be a more complete catalog, and slightly better reproduction than the catalog in CMGL's TP868.B85p 1888-1918r. 12w.
"History of the glass cutting industry in Meriden at the turn of the twentieth century, by Mrs. Mollie C. Nolan"--P. 247-265. Additional company information on individual cut glass firms in Meriden follows (p. 266-275).
CMGL owns an original of Quaker City's 1910 catalog (BIB 96968) and Higgins & Seiter's 1895-6 catalog (BIB 39948).
