Catalogue of Singer Sewing Machines Manufactured at Bridgeport, Conn., USA, With Prices, Descriptions and Other Information Relating to Them, Form 735w, Sept 1, ‘08, Supersedes Form 606w, The Singer Manufacturing Co, 6x9, 245 pages, black/white engravings, limp cloth binding.

Although issued by Singer, this catalog is filled with Wheeler & Wilson machines (I only see two that have Singer trademarks). According to internet sources, Singer acquired the Wheeler & Wilson factory in 1905. This was a working company document used by selling agents that was not released to the general public and is therefore scarce. To ensure the catalog was up-to-date modifications, price changes or discontinued product notices were neatly written by hand [model cancellations are especially significant when researching these antique machines]. New model descriptions were printed on tissue-thin paper and painstakingly glued in by hand. Singer adapted their own factory numbering system for these machines by inserting a "w" between the class and model numbers (eg: 22w158). Consistent with the Singer machines of the era they were developed for highly specific commercial and industrial uses. Black/white illustrations depict at least one model from each class with numerous additional engravings of machines with specific optional features. Also included are sections listing the machine recommendations for specific uses along with charts of needles that were best adapted for the various machines and a needle comparison chart illustrating the differences between needle sizes from the two companies (diameter in thousandths). Please see my other items for more early 20th century original Singer catalogs. Scarce.

Condition: Heavy wear to limp cloth binding with some fraying at edges, occasional interior soil from normal use for a working document, stitching no longer tight with multiple interior cracks. All interior writing is significant and pertinent - no extraneous scribbling or underlining. No musty or cigarette odor. Contents are complete, legible and quite useful for reference.
