Birmingham, England: Alfred Pumphrey, unknown  (latest possible: 1892)

Distributor: H. Husbands & Sons

Main language(s)

The known example of the catalogue contains only slide sets by Pumphrey, in similar typography to other known Pumphrey publications.

The name and address of Husbands of Bristol are overprinted in a blank space at the top of the cover, suggesting that other dealers may also have distributed copies of the Pumphrey catalogue with their own names added.

The content of this catalogue is identical with that in the first part of the 'Pumphrey' section (pp. 188-202) of the 1893 Theobald catalogue (Lucerna 4009875), but with a few sets included that don't appear in the Theobald list. The Theobald catalogue adds a further 50 pages to its Pumphrey section, suggesting that this catalogue appeared somewhat earlier than the Theobald version.
