I ran across a link to these images on LEXIKALIKER and I just had to post them here. Gunther posted pages from an A.H. Faber catalog from 1897. Many pages are price lists but the illustrated pages contain beautiful color lithography of their products... just terrific stuff.
A.W. Faber ended the preface to this catalog with:
"...a confident hope that the universal favor so long accorded to my trade-mark will be cheerfully perpetuated."
