Bookseller Tickets

Back in the day, independent booksellers would put little gummed labels inside the cover to identify their shoppe as the origin. Hang Fire Books has graciously included examples in their blog, along with instructions on how to remove them (and other gummed accoutrements added to books after publishing). While I haven't seen a lot of these, myself, I've seen similar labels on old 78rpm record albums -- I'll bet the two practices are related.
