1895. 3 advertising and ordering sheets published by Alliance Carriage Co., Cincinnati, Ohio, in or around 1895. #1: 1 sheet (28 x 22 cm.) with engraved letterhead showing the factory and office, and typed letter to accompany the catalog with the "entirely New Styles for 1895." #2: 1 sheet (31 x 23 cm.) advertising the company's spiral spring, with 2 engraved illustrations on the back (the spiral spring was advertised in magazines in 1893). #3: 1 sheet (24 x 26 cm.) containing carriage and harness order forms, dated "189_." The Alliance Carriage Co. had been in business since 1888 or earlier. Apparently it explored transitioning to the production of automobiles in the 1890s, when it produced a vehicle designed by the British mechanical engineer Walter MacLeod, but seems to have gone out of business by 1900. In Good Condition: #1 and #2 have small stains; #2 has loss along one side, without loss of text, and closed 3-cm. tear along fold; #3 has closed 2-cm. tear from upper edge; all have folds. Good.
