About this work

Description

This volume contains 250 numbered pages, but pp. 213 onwards are blank. There are also some blank and unnumbered pages in the volume.

Dates are given for some advertisements, but not for others. Place of publication is given for some advertisements, but not for others. Where these are recorded, apostrophes have been given as in the volume, not necessarily as would have been grammatically correct (the usage of 'Coopers' has been standardised to make the catalogue clearer, and is not as used in the original material). Where no other distinguishing mark is available, the address at the foot of the label has been noted with some descriptions - but only if it is not the Coopers head office in Berkhamsted.

Where the popular 'Old Shep' character has been used in advertisements, this has been indicated separately (where this is not obvious).

There is no original index to this volume.
