Ephemera: Books and Publishing

A while ago I shared a little of the ad hoc ephemera collection I had made of religious bits and pieces. By ad hoc, I mean that this is the kind of thing that falls from books, auction lots and estate boxes like confetti and when I see it I have a tendency just to accumulate it in subject piles. So today's ad hoc ephemera collection is a part of the subject pile of books and publishing. Unsurprisingly, this is one of the largest of the said piles: publisher's catalogues, publisher's advertising, book tokens, bookmarks, ex libris plates, bookseller's return printed envelopes and adverts for encyclopedias all feature.
