Wrigley's Red Book 7th Edition Chewing Gum Premiums Catalogue
This is an early 7th Edition (ca 1907) of the "Wrigley's Red Book - A catalogue for Jobbers, Jobbers' Salesmen and Large Retail Dealers ... given Free with Wrigley's Chewing Gum". 4" x 5 3/4", cloth cover approx. 140 pages.
An interesting "Sears Catalogue" style mail-order book. Electric items are powered by dry cell batteries - nothing plugs in.
The interesting angle was that you had to purchase boxes of Wrigley's Gum for resale. For example, for $16, you got an Electric Cigar Lighter and 20 boxes of Gum. After selling the gum for $1 a box, you had a free Cigar Lighter and $4 cash.
A correction has been pasted over to reflect the latest 19th (1907) Edition of an official pharmacopeia, so I am guessing this catalogue came out in 1907 or soon after.
