June Book Tuesday

 For this month's book Tuesday we have a lovely reproduction catalogue from Peck and Snyder in 1886.

A delightful collection of intriguing, fun, dangerous, and obscure items.

Victorian Society of Alberta

Nineteenth century games & sporting goods

From the dust jacket:

This book is a secret attic on a rainy day, a gentle reminder of the days when baseball was two words and a bicycle was $12.50. Whatever those days were like, they could boast Peck & Snyder's Electro Radiant Megascopes, ventilated lunch satchels, nose amputation knives, battery operated scarf pins, electric sleeve buttons and magic bolognas.
