Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Since 1987, The Catalog of Catalogs has served as the only inexpensive, semicurrent listing of the catalogs that fill mailboxes across the country, plus at least 14,000 more. About 15,000 retailers are listed in 900 subject areas, among them gingerbread houses, casino supplies, jukeboxes, and sundials. In addition to descriptions of the companies, addresses, and telephone numbers, this edition includes web sites for about a third of the entries. Still believing that some people may not have Internet access, Palder does not include online retailers with exclusively online catalogsAthus, Amazon.com is not listed. This directory continues to be recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with a community-based clientele. (Index not seen.)AChristine E. Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib.

Need a mail order catalog? 900 categories (such as art works, books, hats, umbrellas, yoga) lead you to 15,000 catalog entries, each with the regular address, 5,000 internet addresses, and phone (in many cases toll free numbers). Want to buy something (e.g., a camera, a VCR) and check out the options first? Look up the category, then contact the manufacturers or retailers. See what I mean handy?

I was so disappointed in this purchase! First of all, it is not a new edition, which was ok, since i ordered a used edition, but this book was more than fifteen years old! Many of the company's listed are no longer in existence, and even more of them no longer use catalogs because they have a website. The companies that do still use catalogs almost always charge for them, and those charges are not listed-or incorrectly listed. Furthermore, this was a former research edition from a library, so whoever sold it to me had prior knowledge of it's out of date status, or they could not have purchased it in the first place! Very very very disappointed in the lack of disclosure. This was a complete waste of $20!

I have been looking for a book like this. This is a book with a very large span of topics - something for all. Have found a few entries that are no longer in business but most are still available. Anyone looking for easy access to all kinds of info - this book is a good pick.
