Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Not all of these are children's catalogs: many are general catalogs with a section for children's books (page numbers indicated in the record); no children's books listed in the Winter Piper, 1932 or Spring Books, 1936. The children's catalogs all carry small black and white illustrations, while the general catalogs are unillustrated, even in the children's book sections. Several of the issues include order forms and business reply envelopes.
