Summary Catalog: K&E. Keuffel & Esser Co., New York & Hoboken, August 1962. Forty-third edition. Three ring binder (2-3/4" thick spine) with printed vinyl covering; contents are 12 catalogues, price lists; printed tab section dividers; notice leaf: "Introducing the New K&E Product Numbering System." Spine imprinted: B. L. Makepeace, Inc. Also an oval printed foil label on front cover with their name and Boston address plus "Authorized K&E Distributor."

This was a complete format change from the previous edition of the catalogue (1954, 42nd edition) which was a book format. Now individual printed booklets for each product area, 8-3/8" wide x 11" high, numbered 1 to 12, plus separate pamphlet with prices (dated " Effective August 27, 1962") and conversion table of old to new product numbers. The entirely new layout uses photographs for many major products, but not all items are depicted.

The pagination within a catalog is the catalog number followed by the page number, i.e., 9-20 is page 20 of catalog 9.
