I cannot find another copy of this rare catalog in any American library.  The closest to it is a similar catalog published by Biddle in 1904. Rontgen stumbled on x-rays in 1895 revolutionizing medical diagnoses in the process.  This catalog appeared within a few years of this monumental discovery. Biddle was a retailer not a manufacturer. The apparatus shown in this catalogue was made by Morris E. Leeds & Co. When this catalog was published most x-ray apparatus was in hospitals.  Some soiling to wrappers and interior but basically very sound.
