        Popular History: Looking at 20th century Asia Through Printed Ephemera 

        Talk by Elisabeth Burdon of oldimprints.com (of Portland, Oregon, USA) at Asia Bookroom Saturday June 19 at 4pm 

        Brightly colored tourist brochures, train schedules, maps, political broadsides: items that we use in our daily lives but throw away once they have fulfilled a discrete utilitarian function... these items are wonderful sources for exploring "history on the ground," the interests, attitudes and preoccupations of persons who are "at home" in a particular society or merely "passing through" as visitors. It is only quite recently that the richness of this type of material as tools for cultural study has been widely recognised by libraries, researchers and collectors alike. Come and find out more about this extraordinarily fascinating social history resource and how attitudes to it have changed. 

        Display and Sale of 20th Century Asian Ephemera 

        Elisabeth Burdon of oldimprints.com (of Portland, Oregon, USA) will be joining her sister Sally and mother Barbara Burdon at Asia Bookroom on Saturday June 19th (from 12 noon) with a selection of her stock of printed ephemera and illustrated maps. 

        Talk on Asian Ephemera 

        At 4.30pm Elisabeth Burdon will give an informal talk discussing examples of this material pertaining to late 19th and early 20th century Asia, including China, Japan and S.E. Asia. For a brief illustrated introduction to the topic, please visit the "Collecting Tips" page of oldimprints.com
