While researching the article on C.E. Heyer, I noticed an item in The Inland Printer of January 1896 documenting that the Barnhart Brothers & Spindler Big Blue Book was issued in December 1895.

This catalog is not dated by BBS, and its release date has remained somewhat mysterious. Annenberg reckons it as c1896. The Hathi Trust offers two copies with different dates: University of Michigan, 189?; University of California (identical except for slightly smaller filesize), 1901.
