Indianapolis, IN: The Interior Hardwood Co., 1895. Original edition. Two-hole rope tie. Oblong small quarto, pp. 17, illustrated with b/w drawings. The pages are not numbered so it's unclear whether it's complete. If so, the plate numbers are unconventional. Present are plates IV, VII, X, XIII, XVI, XIX, XXII, XXIII, XXIV, XXV, XXVIII, XXXII, XXXV, XXXVIII, B, and W, Fair; front cover is soiled, wrinkled, and detached, with the word "Floor" sliced away; back cover soiled and deeply creased. Item #21255

It was difficult to find any information on The Interior Hardwood Company, but it was in existence at least 10 years before this catalog was issued. These lovely plates displayed their ornamental wood-carpets, parquetry, and borders. Their designs were wonderfully intricate and detailed. Very hard to find; this is our first time offering this title.
