Cleveland, Ohio: Cleveland Faucet Co.; J. B. Savage Print, 1894.
Stapled booklet (22 x 15 cm.), 40 pages. Illustrated. FIRST EDITION. A trade catalogue for the beer pumps or keg systems manufactured by Cleveland Faucet Company, makers of bar fixtures, hardware, and equipment. In 1883, three Ohio natives, Messrs. Collins, Weatherhead, and Mayer, founded Cleveland Faucet Company, a brass foundry specialized in a combination pump and faucet. Their "specialties are absolutely unrivaled for utility, quality, and adaptability to the purposes required of them and have no superiors." [Leading Manufacturers and Merchants of the City of Cleveland and Environs (Akron, 1886), page 172]. The company's first trade catalogue was issued in 1885, and a 48-page, combined trade catalogue and drinks manual was later published in 1897. ~ While complete and fully legible, this booklet is worn, with large dog ears, water staining, and soiling to several leaves at rear. Wrappers soiled and chipped. Scarce. [OCLC locates one copy (Missouri History Museum); Romaine, page 21; not in Noling].
