TEMPORARY LIST

In order to reorganize below the present detailed list is now added a new list of 131 items in my possession.

Scroll down to see the temporary list.

Some of them are not scanned yet, some need restoring. And of course the process of dating needs to be done.

 

DOWNLOADS

A number of catalogs can be downloaded from this website.

However, the number of catalogs in the collection exceeds 4 Gb in size. (And I I still have to scan some 30 catalogs.

The website is only 1 Gb in size. So it is obvious that it is impossible to have them all online for download.

Catalogs of builders

At Robert F. Gellerman's website there is a extensive listing of catalogs in archives of collectors. The majority of these catalogs are not available to "the public".

It is very reasonable that collectors don't copy their original catalogs without any compensation. Some of the catalogs can only be found through referrals in books and magazines.

My approach is a little bit different. Somewhere there has to be a starting point to make catalogs public without spending your income in buying them.

Barter as in former days: mirrors and collars

I have something, you have something. You want what I have, I want what you have. In the dictionary I found that "barter" is the word for that.

By now it must be clear: Do you have an original catalog, not mentioned on the listing below, I would to trade a copy of that catalog against a DVD-disc with all catalogs I have. By the way: If you have a photocopy of a catalog that I do not have in my list: The same principle is valid: let's exchange!

It's easy to contact me: go to the contact page and click...

 

The present state of the list of catalogues on my bookshelf, are now in an Acrobat file, available for download and study.
