The Ultimate Literary Ephemera
But among the other lots from A. P. Watt Ltd were those pictured above, perhaps the best ever auction lot of literary ephemera. These deed boxes were the companies own receptacles for letter and other documents relating to their work with various authors. Some of the lots still contained letters or documents but, for me at least, the main appeal of these is as a cracking object. They all sold, more or less on estimate between £150 and £250.
