Anderson Improved Steam Trap Sales Booklet

Post by earlgo » Sat Mar 10, 2018 9:49 am

When I got the Sebastian and May Lathe in the early 1970's a bunch of 'stuff' came in the boxes, among which were 2 sales booklets from the V. D. Anderson Co in Cleveland, OH. The booklets are 3" x 5" by 60 pages and are probably leather bound. There is no date in them but the table of current postage listed therein is 1 cent for post cards and 2 cents for letters. Aside from describing the topic equipment there are a few other items mentioned without prices. Additionally there are tables of weights and measures, areas of circles, flat belt information, rudimentary steam tables, weather bureau flags, and what to do in case of accidents. Basically something akin to the current Carr-Lane booklet on Trig Tables and Handy Reference.
Rather than throw them in the dumpster maybe someone is interested in them. PM me and I will send them at no charge.

Talk about cool, old stuff!
If you don't get any takers, don't toss 'em. I'd add them to my humble collection of ancient tool catalogs.
