PATHÉ BABY FILM CATALOGUES

 

AND SUPPLEMENTS

 

This says it is the first French descriptive catalogue and is dated October 1922. The individual pix did not survive the Great Software Disaster of 2014 so I am trying a PDF instead. I still have higher res scans in case.

David Richardson has kindly scanned all sorts of useful, early literature, including the catalogue from 1923 below. I have some difficulty with how to present such documents, including the 1922 catalogue above. Inevitably, the scanning process is imperfect; the slightest lack of flatness and "stains" appear. Try to adjust the background colour to what it might once have been before the paper faded, and you leach away some of the very wide range of colours of which the letters are composed. To show you, I have given 3 versions of pages 6&7; the original scan, a pale yellow/cream colour that I have found works well, and a rather stark black and white version. Deciding just how much work to do is difficult - it doesn't help that I quite enjoy doing it and find it quite compulsive - because it can be very time-consuming and there is just so much material. I shall have to leave most of them unprocessed for now. At least, I shall end up making a virtual archive of information that anyone can access, whereas actual copies are very rare indeed. I am very grateful to people like Dave who are willing to share their material in this way. He has also provided more of the Baby film leaflets - these, too, are unprocessed - which I have started to add - see Before PM...
