Victorian Lighting; The Dietz Catalogue of 1860

[Lighting]. (trade catalog) Dietz & Company.

Victorian Lighting; The Dietz Catalogue of 1860 with a new history of Dietz & Victorian Lighting by Ulysses G. Dietz

American Life Foundation Watkins Glen, NY 1982 Folio (18 1/2 X 12), pp. 123, bibliography, 6 full pages colour plates, 33 full page black & white plates, numerous other illustrations. The author has contributed a supplemental history which reviews Victorian lighting, including girandoles and lamps, and the role of the R. E. Dietz Company in bringing light to American homes.
There is no other catalogue quite like this for showing what lighting was like in mid-19th century America. A beautiful piece of modern day bookmanship: this reprint does the original justice. Very scarce in the reprint edition; impossible to find outside of one single museum in its original published form.
