Japanese Trade Catalogs

Seven Illustrated Catalogs and Brochures for Japanese Safes.

Various cities: various publishers, circa 1924. Various sizes, mostly octavo 18 to 24 cm high, some fold out to larger sheets. Original printed wrappers and self-wrappers; pagination ranges from single sheets to a 14-pp. catalog. Some light handling wear, chipping, minor soiling, overall very good.

An assortment of seven 1920's catalogs and brochures from Japanese safe manufacturers, including the Goto Safe Company, the Okura Safe Company, and the Tokyo Safe Company. The items range from a single sheet with only a table to larger catalogs with images and technical measurements. One brochure includes a photograph of a building on fire and then images of the safe found in the rubble, its contents seemingly unharmed. One catalog includes images of the safes being manufactured, and a brochure for "The Safe-Cabinet" includes images in color.

A rare collection of hard-to-find catalogs.
