J. W. Fiske 1893 (Reprinted Weathervane Catalog)
American Historical Catalog Collection, Princeton, The Pyne Press, 1971
A complete reprint of the Illustrated Catalogue and Price List of Copper Weathervanes manufactured by J.W. Fiske, New York. Probably the best reprint ever done of an old weathervane catalog. This catalog features well over 200 black and white illustrations of weathervanes, finials, lightning rods, and stable fittings with the original introduction to the catalog as well as an informative history of the company in back. Also included is a list of collections, and a great bibliography. Fiske was one of the premier weathervane makers of their time and this book accurately portrays many of their designs with original size and pricing information. This is an invaluable resource or inspiration for any professional. Some of the illustrations used on this site are from an original copy of this catalog.
