1922 Illustrated Catalogue of Books

A few months ago, I purchased the 1922 Illustrated Catalogue of Books put out by The Book Supply Company of Chicago. The catalog is in excellent condition and even has the original order form.

Remember that you can click on any image to view a larger version.

The catalog appears to contain all books that were available for sale by all publishers during the year 1922. The catalog is 352 pages long. I took a few photographs of some of the pages for the juvenile series books.

Most of the series books are available at $0.54 each from the book company. Since only the series books that were available in 1922 are offered in the catalog, you will notice that not all titles in each series are listed. The remaining titles had not yet been published as of 1922.
