BROADSIDES, 1679 - 1985.
Broadsides are an interesting publishing phenomenon, known from dawn of printing, with Glaister defining them thusly: "Originally, a sheet of paper printed on one side only."
Usually ephemeral in nature, and today, with this list, we include other items of such a nature... songsheets, ballads, leaflets, playbills, even an odd airline poster or two.
Generally from the US, or UK, but not exclusively, with at least one South African example in the list.
With this notice, we announce Tavistock Books has just uploaded a list of 40 broadsides to our 'Select Acquisitions' page. From 1679 to 1985; from Aviation to Wall Street; from $45 to $7500.
