Cheap Yet Substantial
E. Walker's Pictorial & Cheap Book Publishing and Book Binding Establishment, New York, ca. 1845.
The Society holds over seventy books published or bound by Edward Walker. This advertising flyer promotes both his title list and his “cheap and substantial” bookbinding business. The books are mostly religious or historical in nature. Walker encouraged customers to bring their music and unbound texts to him for binding, and heoffered special prices to libraries (thank you!)
