1902 Sears catalog (indexed)

the multiple paginations for this ebook are fubar with a capital bar

it's a 699pg 1969 reprint of the 1162pg 1902 original, with 463 "mostly repetitious" pages omitted for economy

GoogleBooks (which doesn't share the ebook directly) thinks it has 1164 pages but that's just the number on the last page (1162) plus two

the pagenumber font from 1902 is also very hard to read

Hathi's page-number search is wildly inconsistent (so probably unreliable for longtern linking)
