Price: $100.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Fair-Good


Red cloth with black spine titles and black, cream, and gilt cover titles and decorations, 22 by 28.5 cm, 158 pp., illus., samples. Wear at the corners and spine ends, light pencil scribbles on the endpapers and frontis, a few pencil notes in the text, and some of the samples have been removed (see below). At one time, Dennison’s was a powerhouse of office and stationery supplies, and a manufacturer of tags and labels for a variety of businesses, including booksellers. This fully-illustrated catalog – with many illustrations in color – features everything from coin wrappers and sealing wax to wedding cake boxes to paper napkins, coin cards, adhesives, paper fasteners, crepe and tissue paper, etc. There are hundreds of tags, from factory workroom tags, key tags, merchandise tags, baggage tags, tag envelopes, and custom-printed tags, and even more pre-printed, custom-printed, and blank gummed labels. Amongst the illustrations are labels for Grigg Book and Stationery Co. (Pembroke, Ontario) and James Shea Stationer & Printer, Blank Book Manufacturer (Nassau St., New York). Unfortunately, the tipped-in samples of gummed paper, embossed labels, initial seals, and tissue paper have been removed – probably by the same young hands that did the pencil scribbles. Only 16 of 18 of the small passe-partout binding tape samples remain. Still, a handsome catalog from the “makers and maintainers of the paper art.”
