1953/54 Montgomery Ward ~ Chicago Fall & Winter Hardcover Catalog ~ Very Good Condition.
This spectacular catalog contains 1,072 of clothing and household items sold by Montgomery Ward in the early-1950s.
There are thousands of color and B/W photos ~ from fashionable shoes, dresses, coats, underwear, etc., to household goods, such as televisions, furniture, dolls, toys and so much more!
These 9 photos can't begin to touch on the abundance of items in this catalog. These all-inclusive catalogs were probably considered the "internet" of their day. A one stop shop for those with purchasing power.
Bound in taupe linen, this heavy, hardcover book measures 13 5/8" high x 9.75" wide x 1.75" deep.
It is in overall very good condition, but has survived almost 60 years and shows wear, including age-related toning, foxing, paper creasing, tears, corner wear, and spine binding tears. However, the spine is amazingly solid and intact.
This is a great resource book for any aspiring fashion designer or vintage collector.
(Please note, this book will be shipped via USPS Media Mail. It is very heavy and shipping will be much higher if sent via Priority Mail.)
