Sales brochures are arranged in ascending chronological order by printer's number found on back page of most items.
Those from 1923-5 had been originally pasted into a bound ledger entittled "Price Book"; [there were no prices in the book when it was acquired by CMGL]; the first few pages had been removed, 7 following pages were used as a scrapbook; the balance of the book was blank. The book had been flooded and many of the brochures had become detached. To enable both sides of each brochure to be filmed, the remainder were detached. Brochures vary in length from 2 to 8 page folders. Many are flooded and soiled; a few have illegible portions.
Arranged in ascending chronological order by printer's number found on back p. of most items.
