I have been asked to resurrect this catalogue, as the pictures kindly posted by Soundgen in July 2013 have disappeared.
My copy is a 2009 reprint, so the resolution is not as crisp as an original. Here goes......

With no comprehensive books available on Columbia machines, unlike HMV, this sort of reference is great. Years ago I had the Boudoir Cabinet 123a which I now recall. A good sounding compact machine. With the drop down record door like a smaller version of the cabinet on the HMV 145.

Thank you very much for scanning and sharing! I've seen the images concerning the plano-reflex technology elsewhere on the internet before, but never in the context of a full catalogue. Isn't it peculiar that they still had one single external horn model available as late as 1929?

Yes, I owned the only example I have ever seen, and regret selling it. I took pity on a newbie who had been deceived by a Crapophone and wanted the real thing.

Yes I can imagine you're regretting that sale... :|

Do you remember if also the elbow that supports the horn had a flat plano-reflex surface, or was it a standard elbow? It isn't clear by the drawing.
