Item details

Vintage from the 19th century

The Lyon and Healy Christmas Annual Catalog 1896 Piano and Musical Instrument Company Chicago Il was an annual catalog that came out in December, just in time for the holiday gift giving season. This was their 33rd year of publication. The were located on the corner of Wabash and Adams in downtown Chicago-

The catalog is FULL of advertisements, stories, music, and more! I have not seen one intact catalog yet !

*George W. Lyon and Patrick J. Healy began the company in 1864 as a sheet music shop.The company is known to have made other instruments, including reed organs and pianos. Lyon & Healy evidently began manufacturing these instruments around 1876 in its factories in Chicago and nearby cities. George W. Lyon patented his cottage upright in 1878 and it was sold under the Lyon & Healy name.*

Obvious condition problems, front jacket is not attached any longer to the original catalog, and it seems there are a few small tears in the edges due to the catalog being...118 years old!
