Thank you for contacting us. The specific Heaton & Butler 1860 catalog that you mentioned would not be available for loan because we only have one copy of it. You would be welcome to look at all of our holdings if you were to visit the library, but I understand that may not be an option. We do provide certain copies of our materials through Inter-Library Loan. Trade catalogs, specifically, are lent when we hold both a paper copy of the catalog and a microform copy of the catalog. When you are looking at the record it would list at least two holdings for the record - one would need to be trade catalog and one microfilm or microfiche. Here is an example: http://rakow.cmog.org:7008/vwebv/holdingsInfo?searchId=21&recCount=50&recPointer=1&bibId=54344 We would be able to loan the microform of this catalog because we also hold a paper copy. To request any catalogs for which we have microform copies, take the information to your local library and ask you librarian to request it through Inter-Library Loan. We would loan the microfiche to your library and you would be able to view it there on their microform reader. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. To obtain the most complete search results for catalogs in our library on stained glass you should do an advanced search here: http://rakow.cmog.org:7008/vwebv/searchAdvanced I am attaching a screen shot of the way you can limit the search to trade catalogs on stained glass. You'll be entering trade catalog, then choosing as a phrase and also searching for stained glass. Please let me know if you have any questions about searching or trouble opening the attachment. That said, if there was something particular that you wanted from the Heaton & Butler 1860 catalog, I could scan up to 5 pages for you. If you think that would be helpful, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful, and please let me know if you have any further questions.
