SYNOPSIS: This is one of Dover Publications many reproductions of old catalogs and books. While there isn't much information given on the products, this book will give you an excellent idea of the products and goods needed to run a gentleman's stable. The catalog is all illustrations, categorized by type of product, from liniments and boot paste, to both western and English saddles. No prices are given--just the promise of "All Goods shown in this Section furnished at Lowest Wholesale Prices." The "Should be Carefully Read" and "Correspondence Bureau" pages give an insight into the way business was conducted back in 1893. A read more fun than informative, it can still give you good ideas for your stories.
