1897 Sears Roebuck & Co. Catalogue

Imagine it's the end of the nineteenth century, and, with one catalog, you can buy everything from beds and tools to clothing and opium. (Yes, opium.) Not to mention ear trumpets, horse buggies, and Bibles. The 1897 Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue is both a wonderfully fascinating collector's item and a valuable piece of American history. What was once standard household fare is today a sometimes strange, often funny look at what life was once like for the average American family.
