RARE Early 1900s Sears Roebuck Catalog #112 1902 or1903

WONDERFUL 1088 page hardcover Sears Roebuck Catalog #112. I cannot find a published date, but believe it is from 1902 or 1903 as a result of two bank testimonial letters in the front of the catalog dated 1902. This is an original early 1900s catalog - NOT a reproduction! This is full of great merchandise, i.e., jewelry, musical instruments, books, household products, buggies and accessories, horse riding accessories, cameras, guns, sporting goods, perfume, furniture, glassware, carriages, sewing machines and accessories, farm equipment and accessories, cooking stoves and accessories, tools, clothing, linens, millinery/hats and accessories, fabric, wall paper, and MUCH MORE!

T is some soiling and wear to covers with tears to the cloth at the corners and edges. The cloth on the front hinge appears to have been split the full length, but it has been glued and is tight. The first three pages in the front have wear to the outer edge, including several tears, small pieces missing and creasing. These do affect some of the text on the outer edge. The last few pages also have some tiny margin edge tears, which do not affect the text. Page 1085-86 has a piece missing from the top right corner, which affects a small portion of the text. Page 863-64 (footwear) is completely detached with jagged tear at the spine - this page is in poor condition. Several other pages have small margin edge tears, but nothing serious. Otherwise, pages appear to be in good condition. T is splitting to the spine inside the front cover, but it has been reglued, and binding and pages are tight.

Certainly not in great condition, but it is intact and still in decent condition considering its age and use. Great old collectible catalog! I will also be listing a 1918 Sears Roebuck Catalog under a separate auction and will combine sales for reduced shipping.
