R.Nagel and Co. Catalogue 1886

A very rare R.Nagel and Co. (31 Holborn Viaduct, London EC) catalogue from 1886 featuring their unique design of saddles for ordinaries, together with some other accessories. The catalogue is in virtually mint condition. The saddle cover was in two pieces, joined together by leather laces. They claim great comfort and excellent ventilation! Ventilation, yes, but not sure about comfort!! I’ve seen a couple of these saddles in poor condition on bicycles.
