Masterful John Wilkinson Company Sporting Goods catalogue is one of the few 19th century catalogues done in color. Truly unique accordion style catalogue boasts twelve full-page illustrations of all sports including three baseball. One of the baseball is clearly influenced by the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, showing a close to the mark uniform of theirs. Plus, shows a baseball bib front, selection of shoes with baseball leading the way, high wheel bicycle, lawn tennis, yachting and fireman. Opens to 6x7" and has some minor soiling and creasing but magnificent color. From a well known pioneering collector.
