The National Library of Canada has digitized catalogues from its collection that span the decades from the 1880s to the 1970s. Included in this site are catalogues from Christie Grant, Dupuis Frères, Eaton's, Goodwin's, John Eaton, Nerlich, P.T. Legaré and Simpson's.
The catalogues are available in a searchable database, which supports keyword searching of the catalogue indexes. Users can search for a particular item in all the catalogues at once, or choose one catalogue to search. Browsing of the catalogues' indexes is also an option.
The catalogues have been digitized in their entirety, and users can view full-page images or zoom in to take a closer look.
The National Library of Canada gratefully acknowledges the cooperation and contribution of the companies and individuals who provided permission for use of the following catalogues:
We also gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance of the Department of Canadian Heritage, whose ARCHIVED - Canadian Cultural Online (CCO) made this work possible.
