Giant Equipment List for Pathfinder

"Ultimate Equipment" by Jason Bulmahn and others,
published and distributed by Paizo Publishing.
ISBN = 978-1-60125-449-8.  PZO # 1123.

Quick Look-see:

03) Magic Arms and Armor
04) Rings, Rods, and Staves
05) Wondrous Items
06) Artifacts
07) Appendices

Detailed Look:

Part 01 - Arms and Armor.  Covers Armor, Weapons, and Special Materials.

Part 02 - Gear.  Sections about Adventuring Gear, Tools, Animals and their gear, Clothing, Entertainment, Food and Drink, Lodging, Alchemical remedies, Alchemical Tools, Alchemical Weapons, and Poisons.

Part 03 - Magic Arms and Armor.  Armor Special Abilities, Specific Magic Armor and Shields, Weapon Special Abilities, and Specific Magic Weapons.

Part 04 - Rings, Rods, and Staves.  Sections about many rings, rods, and staves.

Part 05 - Wondrous Items.  Belts, Body, Chest, Eyes, Feet, Hands, Head, Headband, Neck, Shoulders, Wrists, and slotless items.

Part 06 - Artifacts and others.  Artifacts, cursed items, and intelligent items.

Part 07 - Appendices.  Section 1 - Treasure Generator, Section 2 - Gems and Jewelry, and Section 3 - Art.

Part 08 - Index.  A decent index for the book.

Part 09 - OGL.  The usual Open Gaming Licenses.

This is probably one of the best and most thorough collections of items for PC's and NPC's alike available.  It includes a section on firearms should you want to include them in your campaign.  The small drawings throughout, I believe, helps you visualize your tools of the trade.  No less than eight tables of slotless equipment - four pages of random item generation.  Altogether, 400 pages of crunch for both players and GM's.  There are almost too many to count pages of random items.  Each section includes a table of items and costs.  The book includes both a good Table of Contents and a comprehensive index.

This is another hardcover book from Paizo that should be indispensable for GM's, and close to indispensable for players.  One of my higher recommendations.
