You are bidding on one original 1885 Canisteo Sash & Door Works Price List or catalog as pictured.

It is dated "REVISED 1885" on the front cover, and dated September 1885 inside.

Softcover (heavy paper covers), 4-1/2" by 8-1/8", 123 pages. Has listings for doors, sash, shutters, glazed windows, and hand rail and stair parts. Mostly pricing, but there are a few pictues. The left hand pages are all blank, titled "MEMORANDA" at the top, with the right hand pages having all of the information.

A previous owner took advantage of all that blank space, and filled up a lot of it with handwritten notes. Subjects include a bunch of recipes, some medical notes, a list of the President's Cabinet members, and some genealogical notes about the Beardsley family.

Condition is good, except for the spine on the outside which is pretty well gone. All of the pages are still bound tightly, and many of the pages are quite stiff with some fading. All of the pages are readable, although some of the handwriting is tough to read, and there is just a slight musty smell.

SHIPPING: under 1 pound. (see below if you are bidding outside the US)
