Review

Nearly every page of the telephone-book-sized 1895 Montgomery Ward & Co. catalogue, reprinted in an unabridged facsimile edition by Skyhorse Publishing, is a nostalgist's dream....Hours of fascination. -- The New Yorker

About the Author

Montgomery Ward & Co., founded in 1872, was the world's first mail-order goods business. The company once boasted more than 600 stores but since 2004 is exclusively an online retailer.

Nick Lyons is the editor of Hemingway on Fishing, The Best Fishing Stories Ever Told, The Quotable Fisherman, and The Little Red Book of Dad's Wisdom. He has written over twenty books, mainly on fishing, in addition to hundreds of articles on the subject, which have appeared in such magazines as Harper’s, Outside, Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, and Fly Fisherman. He splits his time between New York City and Woodstock, New York.

The Montgomery Ward catalog is just what I needed. I'm writing a historical romance set in the 1890s and the catalog has been so helpful as a visual aid with the clothing, furniture, and even kitchen utensils available to people at that time.

I absolutely loved this product. I am a history scholar and it really gave me an insight to what products were available to consumers at that time. Great piece of history for history buffs and excellent reference for anyone that likes advertising,clothing,etc from that time period.

This book is a must for all history buffs or people that are interested in that time period. Personally I am both those things, so this book is like Christmas morning for me. It is full of so much interesting stuff and it really helps you to understand what life was like in the late 1800's It's amazing some of the wierd and crazy stuff in this catalogue, and how cheap things were (at least by our standards). It really brings that world to life and I highly recommend it to everyone!

You would not find a more graphic and accurate description of the clothing, jewelry, tools, etc. of the time period. This is basically the mail order catalog of everything you could get delivered by train. The Montgomery Ward Catalog is a little better than the sears and roebuck catalog in my opinion. This book contains a wider selection of merchandise. A highly recommended resource for anyone interested in the "old ways" Makes for a very interesting coffee table book as well.
