You need a BJP Almanacs for the relevant year of release they would have a review. I'ver just checked a 1928 copy and it's not listed, they must be erarlier as shortly after the Houghton name disappeared and the name Esign was used instead.

Give us a clue to age and type etc.

Knowing the era I've found Houghton's adverts for you from 1910 :D
