Gibson Catalog 'L', 1920

A 1920 Catalog with 1921 Price List and a Gibson Order Form. Absolutely amazing condition. There are definite signs of aging, but the color is still vibrant and the interior pages are almost untouched. The cover paper is more a "construction" type, whereas the interior paper has a slight coating on it. Not unusual for these catalogs. 112 pages of history.

A small tear in the upper-right corner cover page.

Gibson used music teachers and local "Agents" as retailers for their instruments.... much like Avon or Mary Kay cosmetics has done in the recent past. These agents had large quantities of ephemera, much of it ended up in attics and basements. The back of this catalog has some creasing and evidence of being stored in a high humidity environment. No damage, just moisture discoloration.

A fine piece of Gibson heritage.
