This is an interesting collection of American history ephemera. The first is from 1924, F.C. Taylor Fur Co. with nice artwork on cover and throughout the book. This catalog is in color with ads for Remington, Victor Traps, Mossburg, Stevens Arms, & H&R arms. The FC Taylor Fur Company of St. Louis, Missouri was one of the largest players in the fur industry around the turn of the 20th century. Founded in 1870, it was one of the largest manufacturers catering to the lucrative fur industry and its location in Missouri was prime as St. Louis was the last stop for many trappers headed into the wilds. Next is the Trappers Supply Catalog from E.A. Stephens and Company of Denver. It has a wonderful illustration on the front of a bear in trap and an aiming hunter. It has good advertisements as well as information on grading and preparing furs. It is the 1924 catalog. Also a 1916 Swamp Root Almanac from Dr. Kilmer and Co. The almanac shows forecasts, moon cycles, and important historical events. It also has ads for Dr. Kilmer products such as Swamp Root Remedy and the Piles Pipe. Measures 7.75"W x 10.75"H.
