1800's Crane & Breed Casket Catalog "A-6"-Cincinnati,OH:
$511

This sale features a late 1800's to early 1900's Crane & Breed Casket Catalog "A-6". This is one great old collectible !! The catalog is titled "The Crane & Breed Mfg. Co. - Quality First - Cincinnati, Ohio." I cannot find an actual copyright date anywhere in this catalog. It has soft black leather covers that are binded by two very old screws on the inside back cover. The catalog has gold page edges that you can see in my picture. It is 10" long and 5-1/2" wide. It has a total of 406 pages. The catalog reads that it is an illustrated catalog of varnished and cloth covered wood and metallic caskets. The catalog is full of pictures, dimensions and descriptions of hundreds of caskets offered during that time period. The pictures are all black and white - no color pictures.

What I find interestng is that in the front of the catalog in the ordering information it gives a table of terms to use when ordering by telephone - then it gives a table of words to use if ordering by telegraph! It states: For extra sizes add to telegraph word the words "EXTRA" for single extra size, and "DOUBLE EXTRA" for the 24-inch width. The Crane & Breed Company was in business from 1853 to 1977. It is written that they may have manufactured the casket for President Abraham Lincoln and was also the nation's first manufacturer of the automobile hearse.

The only flaws with this catalog is mostly what you see on the outside cover - the leather is still mostly soft and pliable but is very flaky to the touch. The outside and inside both are quite strong and sturdy. The inside is very nice with only some light toning and maybe a tiny speck here and there - but I only mention this for clarity for the inside is really great for its age. The pages are tight and all are intact. A super great item here at a low opening offer with .

I have another very old casket catalog on this week - Boyertown Burial Casket Co., Pennsylvania - so be sure to check out my other sales. I'll be glad to combine sales won to save you on shipping costs.
