I spent a bunch of time scanning and reassembling a 1962 Gordon Enterprises catalog.  (Is it their first one?)  It's copyrighted, and normally I won't scan and post copyrighted material (I create copyrighted stuff myself!), but my research says this one has expired.  The first copyright term would have expired in 1990, and I can find no evidence whatsoever that they renewed it.  (Nor, in fact that they registered it originally, but they'd still get their 28 years just by marking it copyrighted.)  If someone from Alan Gordon wants to take issue with this, please contact me!

Here is the monstrous, over 300MB, 600 dpi version:

Here is the easier to download 100 dpi version, at 24MB, but a lot of the tiny print gets blurry at that resolution:

Fascinating stuff.  I'm still slogging through the 130 pages myself.

I have some newer catalogs of theirs but I need to research the copyright status before I bother with all the scanning work.  If I end up scanning them I'll post them here.
