Comptoir général de la bimbeloterie

Paris: Self-published, 1962. Vintage French toy and home goods sales catalogue, published for the Comptoir general de la bimbeloterie ("supplier of trinkets"), representing years 1961-1962.

The CGB sold toys and goods starting in the early 1900s, and remained in operation until the mid-1970s. This catalogue represents the company at what appears to have been a considerably successful point, judging by the lush color photographs on the wrapper showcasing their sales floors and massive inventory.

8.75 x 11.75 inches in side-stapled color wrappers. 52 pages, rectos and versos. Very Good plus, lightly edgeworn.
