Chemicals and Chemical Wares, Imported, Manufactured, and for Sale by Bullock & Crenshaw, Druggists and Chemists… [cover title].


Unrecorded 1849 trade catalog of chemicals and chemical laboratory wares issued by Bullock & Crenshaw, Philadelphia druggists and chemists. Though defective (it lacks at least four leaves), it appears to be—by three years—the earliest extant catalog from Bullock & Crenshaw.

The catalog is divided into two parts: “Chemicals, Imported, Manufactured, and for Sale by Bullock & Crenshaw” and “Porcelain and Glass Chemical Ware &c. Imported and for Sale by Bullock & Crenshaw.” The catalog’s function is to offer a wide assortment of products, each named and kept to a single line with their cost stated.

There are no copies in OCLC or in Romaine. The earliest company catalogs we find date back only as early as 1852.
