Slide Shows of Old Catalogs

I have made slide shows of the catalogs of American manufacturers I found at Archive.org, plus the two I scanned myself. Missing is the S.C. Johnson one from Hathitrust. You can get an overview with the thumbnails, and deep link to each page. Move between slide shows.

Catalogs Viewable Online

Most in this section also have slide shows listed above. Not above is the S.C Johnson at Hathitrust, John W. Boughton at U of Houston, and the two European ones at the section end.

Catalogs Found only in OCLC: WorldCat

Hopefully someday the catalogs below will be scanned and move to the section above. Especially for the following American manufacturers that are listed below, and are not listed above. Only in Libraries:
