Original c. 1927 Catalog

The Dorfan Company, Jackson Street , Newark , New Jersey

This is a difficult to find original catalog from Dorfan which was founded in 1924 by two German immigrant brothers and ended production in 1934. History about the company is attached below. Train collectors know the high value a Dorfan brings today, as well as original advertising whenever it’s found. This softcover, staple bound catalog measures 8.5” x 11” and has nice color illustrations. Attached to the last page is a small postcard with Dorfan Logo-Builder Engine Parts and their prices.

Condition is complete. Pages are toned, t are clips and a small piece missing from cover's upper right corner, minor soiling. T is some wear on page edges. A ll 20 pages (includes cover) are , but cover is separated from the rest which remains stapled together. N o writing was found on the catalog. I have included many photos with this listing so please review them to be sure you are comfortable with the condition and quality before purchasing. Photos are considered part of the description. This is an “as is” auction of a used, 82 year old rare catalog.
