I'm looking for the value of this very illustrated catalog.
140 pages of rods, reels and other.
145 rods and 70 reels are represented.
A stain of moisture on the cover. The interior is in good condition.
The last patent listed on the catalog is 1906.
Marc

Very nice, Marc! If you were to send me a digital copy for the ORCA Library I would put it (carefully) next to the 1904 Montague catalog we already have on file. The ORCA membership would be very appreciative! Thanks for considering this.

That's a neat catalog, Marc. I don't know the value but I live in Massachusetts and have been through to Montague and Amherst a number of times. I always wished there were some remnants of the old rod factories but, alas, there's nothing there, as far as I know.

Given the many messages received, I put this catalog on ebay.
I found this catalog in a very, very old French fishing shop.

Sid, you can download the 12 images on this link to insert them in your library.
Good luck to everyone who sent me private messages about it.
Marc
