1881 New York CATALOGUE of Silverware, Jewelry, Watches, Diamonds. Gorham Manufacturing; Carter, Sloan & Company; American Watch Company of Waltham Mass. [Robbins & Appleton]; Alfred H. Smith & Co.
1 1881 New York CATALOGUE of Silverware, Jewelry, Watches, Diamonds. Gorham Manufacturing; Carter, Sloan & Company; American Watch Company of Waltham Mass. [Robbins & Appleton]; Alfred H. Smith & Co.
Cambridge, MA Riverside Press 1881 Hardcover Very Good 4to. 
110 pages. 10.7 x 8.4 inches. A superb 1881 original New York catalogue representing four companies: Gorham Manufacturing Company, Silversmiths. Carter, Sloan & Company, Makers of Gold Jewelry, Bracelets, and Chains. American Watch Company of Waltham Mass. [Robbins & Appleton]. Alfred H. Smith & Co., Diamonds. Each of the four sections has its own title page and is noted as Copyright 1881. Uncommon, no doubt due to the original expense of production and limited number of serious clientele. Worldcat shows only two institutional holdings, both in Special Collections: Brown University and New York Public Libraries. Paper over board. Spine professionally stabilized and rebacked by Peter Gregoroff. New spine and new endpapers; all else original and complete, with small marginal paper repair to page 31/32. Binding is sound; marginal thumbing to a few leaves but overall a remarkably clean interior. No inscriptions. Frontispiece in black and white, to entire catalogue, of stunning Alfred H. Smith & Co. diamond ensemle. Full colour frontispiece of Gorham Sterling Silver Tea Service, tissue guarded. Lithographs of exceptional quality to which my photographs do not do justice. Thereafter numerous illustrations including five lithos for Gorham, two for Carter Sloan, and four brilliant tissue guarded metalic plates for Waltham. The majority of illustrations are in simple black and white. Apart from the ensemble frontispiece the only illustration for the A.H. Smith diamond catalogue is a full-page image of the Kimberly mines.
