Description and Notes:
This thirty-second "U" edition of the catalogue of W. F. Stanley & Co. Ltd. was once belonged to one O. Middleton. This catalogue may first be published during the WWII, as in the introduction section it states:
At the time of going into press, certain restrictions made necessary during the emergency period may still be in force which would preclude us from supplying immediately all the articles shown in the catalogue. Should this result in inconvenience or disappointment to our friends, we count upon their kind indulgence.
Nevertheless a price change sheet which is dated at January, 1950 has been inserted. This 377 page paperback catalogue contains all types of instruments produced or retailed by the company, including surveying, mathematical, drawing, optical, nautical and scientific equipments, and drawing office stationers and furnishers.
