Quarto (28 x 25 cm.), 76 pages. Index. Profusely illustrated. Lacking the separate price list. Publication date from the UC Davis copy, which includes a price list dated March 15th, 1923. ~ FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. A trade catalogue of supplies and machinery for the ice cream trade, including everything a small business might need to outfit an ice cream parlor, including ice cream machines, electric fudge warmers (also good for bullion!), ice cream pails, trowels, scoops, spoons, ladles, straws, soda glasses, sundae cups, chairs, tables, and other shop furniture. The firm of Wood & Selick was formed in 1880, and became a significant supplier of ingredients, equipment, and machinery for the baking, confectionery, and ice cream industries. They also were well known for a side business as the producers of W&S Cough Drops. Business was so good that the firm commissioned a new seven story brick warehouse at the corner of Duane and Hudson Streets in what is now known as New York’s Tribeca (the handsome Babcock & Morgan building was recently home to David Bouley’s eponymous restaurant). Light soiling to publisher’s wrappers, otherwise near fine. Scarce. [OCLC locates two copies (UC Davis and UVA’s Small Collection)].
