Please view the 1898 catalog attachment.

Why do you ask ? Are you planning on purchasing anything ? Can you not do any research for yourself, and then YOU can share with others, as others have tried to share with you ?
Bottom line is....you never say what you are planning on doing with all the information you are constantly seeking. You might get more co-operation, if you let others know what constructive need you have for the information you seek.

I have not heard of anyone making reproductions.

Why not just buy the real thing? Prices are not terrible.

Also to pick the nit, those are not catalogs nor attachments nor catalog attachments, but looks like a series of books on this manufacturer, I'm sure that by seeing the ISBN number you will be convinced that these are books written much later than 1898, since the ISBN system was put in place in 1970... some 72 years later.

I'm just stating this because the actual 1898 catalog would be interesting, if there was such a thing.

On a previous similar topic by Norman, he was looking at Buddy L reproductions, and they were very expensive, almost $3,000, so I was stating that buying the real thing would be about the same or less price (albeit used and worn).

Looking at your link to ebay, clockwork Bing train sets, pre-war about $350 does not seem "pricey"...
