Ephemera

Post by Bob Rothwell » Sat 4 Jun, 2005 01:57:58

I would dearly love to do a web page covering items of ephemera – publicity material, trade handouts, point of sale material, interesting letters, bookmarks, in fact anything that isn't a published piece of work connected to Dennis Wheatley. I have a limited number of items, but not enough to make a page a worthwhile project. Is there anyone out there who can help with pictures/information?

I just might be able to help you... Congratulations on another great idea (The Library) which should lead to an even more comprehensive website! Shouldn't 'communications center' be spelt the English way?

Just registered with the Library although I have been a regular visitor to the website for some time. I received a gift of a bookmark with a book I purchased recently which, it is alleged, was already in the 1st edition. It is certainly from around 1950 although undated and I will send separately a photo which may not do justice and a photocopy in the mail. Good luck with this new venture.

Mike - before you spend your money on postage, I have also just got a 50s bookmark which sounds like the one you have. Have a look at this:

I calculate from its wording that it was issued with 'The Second Seal' in 1950, but don't know for sure. If any one does know for certain, please let us know.

First, my apologies for not signing my previous post.

Second, having checked the actual bookmark, it lists the titles, but *not* the historical dates of the series. (Those are in an appendix in the book itself.)

Anyway, I have no scanner myself, but I will see who among my friends might be able to do this for me.

Ephemera

Thanks for this topic Bob. After reading Jim's reply, I thought the bookmark looked very familiar. So I went to my collection and pulled out my copy of Desperate Measures which I hadn't looked at for over 30 years. Sure enough, inside the book was an identical bookmark to Jim's! So now I can say that I too have some Wheatley ephemera! :D
