Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a link to the "Geo A. Kelly & Co, formerly B.A. Fahnestock & Co", Pittsburgh, PA. Wholesale Druggists Product Catalog, that I had wrote about in another thread! I had made a listing for this item in my store this morning, and will be offering it to the high bidder, if there is one, as I have it set to start at my reserve price!!
This is the ca.1876 Geo. A .Kelly & Co, Wholesale Druggists of Pitt, PA. formerly known as B.A. Fahnestock & Co (est 1829) They manufactured and sold all types of products including: Patent and proprietary medicines, white lead products, paints & oils, drugs & drug sundries/supplies & chemicals and they ran several glasshouses, manufacturing all types of glass bottles, jars, window glass, oil & kerosene lamps & chimneys! Advertisements for all of these items & more can be found inside this little booklet of period correct products along with their current prices for the year of 1876!
In Very, Very good condition, contains a total of 134 pages, measures approx 1/2" thick, by 6" tall by 4" wide! Chock full of great ads and products with prices! Judge it for yourself! Take a look and see the condition! It's a very solid little book! Guaranteed through eBay and Pay Pal's guarantees and through My own personal promise of excellence!!
I really didn't want to sell it at first, as I do collect medicines and proprietary bottles of different sorts and ages! But, I had thought long and hard about it, and because I am a collectibles dealer by profession, I will offer it up for bid! Although I will not lower the integrity of the item and sell it for little of nothing. (something the internet does to a vast many of collectibles already) It will be sold for what it is, a valuable and scarce resource approx 150 years of age, in excellent condition!
