19th century artists' colourmen catalogues

From: Mark Clarke <mark>
Date: Monday, July 3, 2006
We are trying to track down any nineteenth century colourmen
catalogues (particularly those published by Winsor and Newton, the
English manufacturer and supplier of artists' materials who was
active from the early 1830s).

Colourmen Catalogues were also often bound in the back of books on
craft or painting techniques (e.g. shilling handbooks).

If you, or anyone you know, has originals or photocopies of all or
parts of any colourmen catalogues we would be very pleased to hear
from you. In some cases photocopies may be the only record left of
early catalogues.

We would be very grateful indeed for any information about further
originals or copies including  scans, photocopies, photographs, or
