'I am sending herewith' – First World War Ephemera at the British Library

Ann-Marie Foster (notes)

Abstract

This article explores two guard books containing First World War ephemera (shelfmark Tab.11748.aa.4) held at the British Library that were catalogued as part of a PhD placement during the summer of 2016. It examines the acquisition of ephemera during the war, what the collection held at the British Library comprises of, and offers some comments as to why the items preserved are of scholarly interest.
