    Description

    Eighteen Pieces of Early Ephemera, a splendid diverse group of mostly 18th and 19th century material. The one 20th century item is a 1918 receipt affixed with a yellow sticker bearing what is surely a prototype "smiley face." Other highlights include:
    1805 Thanksgiving Ball Invitation, imprinted on Queen of Diamonds playing card.
    1794 and 1808 Bank of the United States receipts.
    Two 1794 New York partially printed receipts for beer.
    1838 British silversmith's receipt, partially printed.
    1800 New York tobacco receipt, partially printed.
    Ticket for "Campbell's Minstrels", mid-19th century. Attractive.
    Items are in fine to very fine condition. From the collection of Henry E. Luhrs.
