Cover title.
"D. Bros & Co. Ltd, H." blind stamped on rear cover. There are no indications of responsibility within the text of the catalog, but it was likely issued by the prominent cloth merchants Dugdale Bros & Co., based in Huddersfield, England. One of the firm's most famous lines was named "The White Rose," and "White Rose" serges are advertised on the rear pastedow. A white rose of Yorkshire is also stamped on the front cover. It could be that the present copy was for in-house use only.
