I am looking for the following South Bend Bait Company retail catalogs. If you have any of these for sale or trade, please contact me. I will pay a premium for early materials in nice condition!
The first South Bend Bait Company catalog was issued in 1909. The catalog below dates to 1913 and has been found in both first (labeled "No. 20") and second editions (labeled "No. 20 Second Edition"). Early South Bend catalog material is extremely rare. I will pay a premium for all early catalogs. If you have any early catalogs, please contact me, even if the material is not for sale. Access to early catalog material would be invaluable to assist me with my research efforts.
