Wright & McGill Genuine Eagle Claw Hooks: They Hook and They Hold [caption title]

Denver, CO: Wright & McGill, (c1930 and c1938). Salesman's sample book or trade catalogue. Folio. Ten large sheets, printed with the company's familiar advertising designs, each sheet displaying styles of hooks available from the company, five displaying various styles and sizes of snelled hooks, the other five displaying various styles and sizes of loose hooks. A total of almost 500 hooks are displayed, ranging in size from 16 to 9/0. Cover title: "Wright & McGill, Denver, Colorado: The Mark of the World's Best Tackle." For this prominent American tackle company, OCLC locates only a copy of its tackle catalogue no. 352 issued in 1938. Some of the sheets bear a copyright date of 1938, but this salesman's sample book is completely different from more traditional trade catalogue held at the Denver Public Library, which includes printed tips on fishing methods and tackle usage and does not include actual products, as here. Very good. Original red and white-stamped embossed decorated navy cloth (spine corner bumped). (#6835). Item #59599

Price: $850.00
