c1833 Catalogue And Invoice Prices Of Carpenters' Bench, And Moulding Planes, Manufactured By S. Hills And F. Richards, Norwich, Mass.
Amongst the most valuable of ephemeral records of 19th Century American Wooden Plane Making are the catalog and price lists published by the plane makers, both individual and partnerships. Rather than interpreting value and nomenclature based upon existing physical tools, we can refer to these records for true period data.
Today I'm adding this c1833 Catalogue and Price list of a rare Massachusetts plane making partnership, S. Hills and F. Richards. Following this catalog are links to other price lists held in this site.
