1954 Bronson Publishing Company Catalog
The binder measures 9-3/4" x 11-1/2". The catalog is paged 1 thru 217, and there are a few extras in the back. Pages 39 - 53 and pages 64 - 80 have been removed, and they are being offered separately. Both of those sections were essentially supplemental guitar catalogs. They are currently listed, so you may want to check them out as well.
The sections that I removed were dated 1954, so that is why I am able to date this catalog to 1954. One Kratt page is dated 1952.
Here is a list of what you will find in the catalog: Accordion accessories, accordion cases, Melotone clarinet, Melotone trumpet, Holton oil, band instrument accessories and cases, Revere drums, drum accessories, maracas, Carpenter batons, Ken batons, Bronson Hawaiian guitar, Bronson "Melody King" electric Hawaiian guitar and amplifier, Islander ukuleles, Multi-Kord Hawaiian guitar, Rickenbacker guitars and amplifiers, Gretsch banjo and mandolin, banjo and ukulele accessories, violins and violin accessories, GEIB cases, DeArmond pick-up units, Shure microphones, Norwood music and orchestra stands, other instrument stands, guitar picks, guitar accessories, Kratt pitch pipes and harmonicas, Stringtone tuning changer, Gibson strings, Mapes strings, Squire strings, Ultratone phonographs, Mitchell radios, Hawaiian novelties, lots of course, lesson and instruction books, lots of sheet music - plus more.
Pages 156 thru 217 are all in regard to books and sheet music.
The binder is in good condition, but it does have dullness and discoloration, along with some corner wear and minor scuffs here and there. The covers are also warped some. The pages inside have evident discoloration (yellowing). There is relatively minor corner wear. Some of the punched holes have wear from the pages moving around. The first few and last few pages show the most wear. There is no major wear. There are no foul odors.
The catalog has been very well cared for. It doesn't seem to have been handled all that much. It shows age, but as a whole, it is clearly a nice catalog that I am confident you will be more than happy to add to your collection.
