United Binocular Co of Chicago Illinois USA was an active binoculars importer for a great many years and mailed catalogs to anybody in the USA who requested them, so they are among the most common of vintage binoculars catalogs. The catalogs are never dated, but the company was founded in 1936 and there is a page inside that mentions “20th year of binocular know how” or “ 30th year…”, so they can be dated that way. The catalogs covers were sometimes used for a couple years before being redesigned, or even the basic picture used a decade later with a different color. Also, dated inserts or sale prices are sometimes enclosed. And catalogs are sometimes still in their postmarked envelope. By the way, I think somebody in the company really liked waterfalls, and there is probably a story behind that.
