Although this catalog is not dated, it closely resembles the 1917 catalog reprint by FSJ Publishing Co. (TP868.W531 1917r, Bib no. 97529). In comparison, these pages lack only 1 p. that the reprint has; includes 6 p. that are the same except for the arrangment of items on the page; and includes 5 additional pages laid in at the end that the reprint lacks.
CMGL also owns a reduced sized spiral bound photocopy acquired from the Westmoreland Glass Collector's Club in 1992 or 1993 (Bib no. 56841, F-13979T). This copy was microfilmed and filed by fiche number. User should use that microfiche copy.
Digitized by Boston Photo Imaging in August 2010.
