Ephemera

Ephemera is defined as pieces of paper, posters, or documents that were not meant for long-term preservation, but the pieces featured here have survived for decades, if not centuries. We have expanded our ephemera collection to include playbills, photographs, letters, and illustrations by famous authors and painters. Many of the items included in this collection are unique and one-of-a-kind. By their nature, ephemera can be very fragile and delicate, and very prone to rips and tears. Many choose to carefully frame or otherwise protect their ephemera to maintain its quality and worth. The inclusion of any of these items of ephemera would add depth and diversity of your personal rare book collection, and should you wish to frame any of the available pieces, you would have a unique piece of art to proudly display.
