*** 1956-57 DEALERS HOBBY SUPPLY Dealer Only Wholesale TOY/HOBBY Catalog! VERY RARE! ***
Recently acquired from the estate of an old hobby dealer who closed his hobby store down in the early 1970s.
ORIGINAL Dealer only wholesale price catalog. This is one of the catalogs which was used to order toys/crafts to stock his store back in the 1950s. The front cover is even marked in pen "Office Copy". This is NOT a retail catalog! Only the store owner had access to these catalogs for ordering wholesale for their store or for special orders for customer. As a result, few of these catalogs survived as they were to be thrown away when the newest catalog was supplied to the store dealer! This makes this catalog very rare indeed!!
The catalog is from "Dealers Hobby Supply, Hobby-Craft and Toy Distributors" out of Des Moines, Iowa. This is the '56-57 Toy & Hobby Supplement to 55-56 Catalog'. Most all major lines of toys and hobby supplies are represented in the catalog! AND they are fully illustrated!! This makes this catalog invaluable for identification of those old vintage toys you may have and are trying to research!!! No exact date given but Dealers Hobby Supply typically use the catalog number for the date of the catalog. In this case, I believe it is 1956.
* Fully Illustrated in color and b/w *
Comb binding, 120 illustrated pages plus color sections(approx. 30 pages) for a total of approx. 150 pages. INDEXED! Stiff printed stock color covers. 8 3/4" x 11".
