Like stepping back in time. I just received my catalogs from Perry and am completely blown away by the quality of these reprints. If you have been on the fence about buying these, rest assured they are easily worth double the price. His eye for exact duplication and attention to detail is second to none. I am sure he drove the printer crazy till he got what he wanted.  :D ;D Job well done sir. 
Merry Christmas to me.  :)

[size=12]I just got this reprint ('95/'96) today, and it is a super nice product.  It's got about the same dimensions (length and width) as a High School yearbook, too, which threw me when I pulled it out of the envelope.  Some really interesting items in here... Never ever before have I heard of Griswold making and selling a blast forge, and I never saw a picture of their second, more elaborate umbrella holder, either.

I'm a sucker for old literature scans and reprints, which is why I like the pdf section of this forum so much.  I'm glad I finally got around to ordering this reprint, and I thank Perry Rapier for putting it out there for us.

Hello Adam. Thank you for the compliments. Glad you enjoy the Catalog. Its been awhile since I been on this thread. And I am laughing to myself about it being said that I drove the printer crazy about getting me what I wanted. I told him that I was very easy to please, as long as I got what I wanted.  ;D ;D ;D

He did make four attempts at it till I finally picked the fifth version. And he gave me the first four. So I have this catalog in other variations. I chose the size cause its easy to see and you ain't gonna lay it down and lose it.
