Not illustrated, but with the lots efficiently and effectively described. The inside of the front wrap carries a 'Notice to Purchasers' giving the days of the week on which the firm advertise their 'Sales of Machinery and Manufacturing Properties' in The Times, Daily Telegraph, Standard, Daily News, Daily Chronicle and Engineers. Scarce: no other copy is known to exist, and COPAC only lists four other catalogues by the auctioneers Fuller & Horsey.
