For sale is an ebook facsimile on CD of the 1935 edition of Carl Fischer's main instrument catalog. This catalog seems to have been the first full fledged catalog published by the company after it had been bought back by the Fischer family from Continental.

Physical description of the original

The size is 31 cm height and 23.2 cm width. Dimensions are for the cover. The pages are c. 30.3x22.5 cm.

Most of the 237 numbered pages are printed black-and-white on glossy paper. Some pages are printed in colour on various paper qualities and seem to be manufacturer brochures bound as parts of the catalog. A result of this collation style is that the pagination gets slightly messed up towards the end and the page numbers actually end up at 239. An extra smaller format page has been pasted into the catalog between pages 126 and 127.

The catalog is hardbound.

My copy of the catalog includes two copies of Carl Fischer's November 1935 newsletter.

Dating

The catalog is undated but the 1935 newsletter announces it as new.

Format

The CD presents the catalog in a choice of three different formats: high resolution (180 dpi) JPEG scans for maximum quality, HTML format allowing you to leaf through the scans as if it was a paper book and PDF format for quick reference with all pages in a single document. It is readable on any reasonably modern computer with a CD drive.

Copyright issues

The item offered for sale is a CD with a digital reproduction of an antique print. The copyrights for the original have expired and it is now in the public domain.

The copyrights for the scans and the editorial content of the ebook is held by me - © 2007-2010 Frank Nordberg.
  The buyer of the CD is granted permission to use the content for his/her own pleasure and work but not to redistribute without explicit permission, except under some conditions specified in the copyrights file included on the CD and available from me on request.

Shipping and handling

Shipping with regular mail is free worldwide!

Please note that I live in Norway so shipping to your country may take a little while (usually between one and three weeks). If you are in a hurry and willing to pay actual shipping costs, I will try to find faster options than regular mail.

Downloadable files

Unfortunately I am not able to offer the ebook as a downlaod at the moment since this would violate eBays' trade policies.

Return policy

A CD is esentially a digital item, so all sales are final. However:
  • Faulty and broken CDs are of course replaced at no extra cost.
  • Returns are accepted if the content of the CD turns out to be significantly different from what the description here at eBay says.

Payment

At the moment I can only accept payments through PayPal. However, you do not need a PayPal account to pay through them. All you need is a valid credit card or debit card.
