Antique vintage paper pack 36 pages19th century Victorian, tattered and crumbling, for altered art, collage, decoupage or mixed media art. Seeking beautifully yellowed, aged and tattered paper for your art? Look no further, over half the pages in this pack meet those criteria and 5 of them are handwritten in French from the 19th century! There are many other possible art and craft uses for these: some of these pages would make great small product photography backgrounds and if you are a resin artist you could also make great badges, bag charms, brooches, earrings, gift tags, key fobs or pendants from cutouts or scans of these! All now out of copyright.

Will be carefully packed in a clear fronted bag protected by stiff card on either side and then mailed in a padded bag to keep them safe them on their journey to you. PLEASE NOTE: I have replaced the frayed pink ribbon in the photographs with grey lacy trim, if you'd prefer the pink (or don't want any at all) just let me know in notes to seller at checkout - thank you:)

Rescued from books that were damaged beyond repair (lots of missing pages) and of no intrinsic value. Lovely yellow age patina to some of these pages, PLEASE VIEW PHOTOS FOR DETAILS.

36 PAGES in total, the genuine artice, not scans. In clean, vintage condition. Printed on both sides unless otherwise stated.

SOURCED FROM THE FOLLOWING PUBLICATIONS.

- 10 PAGES from an 1869 edition of Mrs Beeton's "The Book of Cookery and Household Management", comprising the title page (with advertisements for Whelpton's Vegetable Purifying Pills and Whelpton's Vegetable Stomach Pills on the reverse - er, no, thank you...) and 9 pages of the Analytical Index, "Accidents" - "Orange". Most of these are beautifully yellowed, age spotted and crumbly at the edges.

- 5 PAGES, very yellowed and fragile complete with ink splatters, underlinings and tick marks (why the underlinings and tick marks, I wonder, maybe it belonged to a teacher?) from a 1798 dictionary. "A" - "Adorn". Lovely browny yellow discolouration and again a bit crumbly at the edges.

- 11 PAGES from the "Leisure Hour Annual" 1886, comprising 5 separate articles/essays. Mostly text with a couple of engravings, including a beautiful full page engraving of a young girl holding a carrier pigeon, entitled "The Private Postman"

- 5 PAGES - delightful handwritten pages from an 1878 transcript of the first book of the "Album Archealogique du Clement V" - "Antiquites du Perigord et Sarladois". Yellowed and extremely fragileand crumbly round the edges but *just beautiful*! (One of the pages has a few lines missing from the bottom and another has a tear that extends into the handwriting, so I have counted these as 1 page for pricing purposes!) It appears to have been written on now very faded graph paper and has been proofed with red ink. Includes 6 small hand drawn and hand coloured images of coats of arms.

- 5 PAGES from "Daddy Darwin's Dovecot" by Juliana Horatia Ewing, published by the London Society For The Promotion Of Christian Knowledge. Mainly text, includes two adorably tiny monochrome illustrations by Randolph Caldecott.

MEASUREMENTS: Page measurements vary from 4 and a half inches/11cm square to 8 and three quarters of an inch/22cm by 13 and three quarter inches/35cm.

PLEASE NOTE: The pages in the photographs are amongst and are typical of the pages you will receive. Sorry I can't show every page but I have attempted to show as many as possible; if you'd like to see more photos please convo me:)

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ - I apologise for the recently raised postage prices for destinations outside the UK, this has been unavoidable due to the Royal Mail increases. I have worked out that I can send everything within the UK as a Large Letter so this is a saving but unfortunately this option does not exist for destinations outside the UK.

EXTRA ITEMS IN AN ORDER DON'T ATTRACT ANY INCREASE IN POSTAGE!

IF I HAVE OVER-CALCULATED POSTAGE I WILL ALWAYS REFUND YOU!
