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.

Description:
1780 softcover pamphlet in very good condition. Paginates: (iii)-viii, [2], (9)-101, blank, lacking the half-title (if it ever existed). Second edition. Pencil notes of prior book seller on title page, no other markings, creases or interior problems. Bound in quality laid paper wraps. A very nice copy. The paper is wonderful example of the paper making trade in 1780's London. Content is scathing satire and complaints about, among other things, the loss of the colonies. A nice copy. Please see scans of the item you will receive. Notes: This title may be found in the libraries of Thomas Jefferson & Benjamin Franklin. More Notes: This is how most books came from the printer and it was up to the buyer to decide on further binding. This appears to have never been bound.
