Very cool; thanks for posting this.

I'd never heard of Delaware until yesterday; anyone know their story?

I figure it is easier to type the blurb on the inside of the front cover than go through the whole picture thing again.  Here it is:

Delaware is...

A company with over fifty years of steady progress behind it -- rich in experience and the know-how of veteran employees, yet dynamic in every facet of activity.

A firm of specialists -- creators of shock steel tool steels and new tool designs to meet the demands of the latest power hammers and ever increasing production requirements.

A producer of the widest product line of its type obtainable from a single source, carrying extensive stock for quick delivery.

A modern plant with up-to-the-minute machine tool and scientific equipment -- geared for efficient production of tools of the highest possible quality.

A business small enough to give all your needs personal attention, but big enough to offer you every advantage without compromise.

An organization of skilled and dedicated people always ready to give you the best in quality, service, and value.

The front cover has the following tool lines/categories on it:

Paving Breaker and Clay Digger Tools

Pneumatic Hammer Tools -- Small

Riveting Hammer Tools

Electric Hammer Tools

Hand Tools

Drills

Plumbing Tools

The hand tools section is pretty interesting.  Maybe I will take some pictures of that section the next time I do Ebay pics.
