Shopping From the Past: Hunting World Catalogue: 1968

I’m sitting down to place an order from a Hunting World catalogue circa 1968. Hunting World is probably my all time favorite mail order outfit of yore (though it continues today under different ownership w/a heavily Japanese following)(see: The ’68 cataloge includes everything for the upscale/urban Safari lifestyle from zebra skin magazine caddies to springbok hassocks to Danish chromed “supercube” furniture (avaialable w/genuine zebra tops). Not one to decorate with animal skins–I’m primarily interested in purchasing items from Hunting World’s line of outdoor clothing and luggage, namely Kalahari culottes and a rubber lined british game bag. Fortunately, they take payment by telegram.
