[Hardware]. Bigelow & Dowse Co.
General Catalog No. 53.
Bigelow & Dowse Co.
Quarto, pp. xli, 1126. Profusely illustrated in b/w, one color page.
A wonderful catalog from one of the major hardware companies on the east coast of the US. The company that later became Bigelow & Dowse was founded in 1839, and eventually became the largest wholesale hardware company in New England. Bigelow & Dowse not only carried an extensive range of hardware and building/plumbing supplies, they also sold fishing tackle, sporting goods, and housewares. This is a scarce piece of Boston trade history.
