"A Catalog of Phonographs and 'O-Keh' Records," issued by the Wartburg Publishing House, 1922. The 12-page booklet has the title across the top and on the bottom of this is, "THAT CAN BE PLAYED AND HEARD IN A CHRISTIAN HOME." At the center is a drawing of a record, and across the bottom is the name and address of the company. A double-line border surrounds the writing on the cover. Items listed for sale include phonographs; consoles; portable phonographs; Dutch language records; and English language records. Records are separated into such subjects as sacred songs; orchestra; secular songs; intrumental; and orchestral and band music. Listed for sale at the back are some picture books and puzzles for children. With brittleness; creases; paper discoloration; folds; foxing; pest damage; tears; stains; and overall surface soiling, the artifact is in poor condition.
