A LOT OF 4 LIONEL 1950s PRIVATE DISTRIBUTION CATALOGS INCLUDING
THE ELLIOTT ROWLAND & DISTRIBUTORS ADVERTISING PROMOTIONS PULP CATALOGS

A MUST HAVE ITEM FOR YOUR LIONEL COLLECTION OR REFERENCE LIBRARY! Up for auction is another group of "private distribution" Lionel catalogs. All are from the 1950s and all of them are printed on "pulp" type paper. Each measures11" high x 8 3/8" wide and have interior pages that are printed in black ink or a combination of black and one other color on white or yellow pages. All have full color covers except for the 1955 catalog with the yellow cover. The positions of the catalogs in the pictures is the same front & back.
The 1952 Distributors Advertising promotions catalog has 16 pages. Black and either red or blue ink. Spine is nice and tight with very little wear but small rips and tears in various places. Back cover tear repaired long ago with magic tape.
1954 Distributors Advertising promotions catalog has 16 pages. Black and either red or yellow ink. Minor spine & edge wear but Chemical stain across the tops of pages with some running of red ink.
The yellow 1955 Elliott Rowland pulp paper catalog has old Scotch tape across the cover to repair an old tear. There is wiring diagram "doodle" on the back cover. Otherwise the book is in excellent or better condition with light signs of use and wear. Pages are creamy tan with generally sharp corners. Interior printing is either black or green on either white or yellow pages. Complete with all 24 pages.
The blue 1955 Rowland pulp paper catalog is in excellent condition with no tape or tears. Light spine & edge wear. Crease in lower right corner. Chemical stain across the tops of pages but very little running of color because there is so little red ink. NO stuck pages. Interior pages are creamy tan with sharp corners. Printing is the same as above. Complete with all 24 pages.
None of these are in "collectible" condition but this is an excellent "reference" package! Certainly worth more then the starting price of $9.99 and that 1954 book is pretty tough to find!
Shipped in a plastic sleeve between sheets of corrugated cardboard
