Notes: 
"Engraved and printed by the famous New York wood block artist, John W. Orr, the Nichols catalog is reputedly the finest of its kind to have survived intact. Lamps illustrated in this catalogue can clearly be identified as being made by Tucker, J.C. Ives, Sandwich Glass and others of the period and truly tell the story of lighting generally available during the time frame. Included are examples of kerosene or coal oil lamps, lanterns, burners and accessories, as well as gas fixtures"--P. [2] of cover.
