This book is the fullest encyclopedia ever. The subject matter is very well explained. This is a must for those immersed in the subject matter.

excellent book , I recommend it for everybody who wants to know about ephemera

I purchased this volume because I was writing a research article on government grey-literature and ephemera. This volume is a fantastic reference for any manager of a collection containing archival or museum items.

Living in the southern hemisphere the postage was as much as the book but I do not regret paying the cost for one minute.

The vendor was excellent.
