About this Item

Number 4 of 60 copies. First edition, 1935. Red cloth 4to, np. With rich illustrations throughout. Near fine with very mild shelfwear. From Landauer's own collection, with a letter and invitations from the Grolier Club affixed to the verso of the flyleaf, an original Japanese balloon card affixed to the following black, and an additional triptych of images affixed to a rear blank. SIGNED/inscribed by Landauer to her granddaught, Barb. Contents are bright, clean and unmarked. Rare. Bella Landauer (1874-1960) was called the Queen of Ephemera, and nearly singlehandedly created the modern collecting field of ephemera. She started collecting in 1923, and eventually amassed a collection of over 800,000 items. Much of her collection was donated to the New York Historical Society, which created a special room to house the vast collection. Landauer began by collecting scrapbooks, but soon began to acquire pamphlets, calling cards, sheet music, advertising, lottery tickets, photographs, broadsides, wine labels, milk cartons, and more. She authored over a dozen books, mostly limited to fewer than 100 copies, in which she reproduced and described gems from her collection. We were fortunate to get to know two of Bella Landauer's grandchildren and purchased from them a number of items from her collection. Bookseller Inventory # z04906
