The Gilbert Catalog

Thumbnail of The Gilbert Catalog project

The Gilbert Catalog is now available.

Alfred Carlton Gilbert understood curiosity and the passion for building. He also understood selling. His annual catalogs are a history of inventive play... and of marketing. The Eli Whitney Museum, with the support of the Connecticut Humanities Council, will collect, scan, and post a complete Catalog of Gilbert Catalogs.

This archive is still a work in progress. If you have access to loan materials we are missing, please email the webmaster.

The Gilbert Catalog archive is made possible by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council.
