Summary
This site provides access to the online catalog of The John Johnson Collection. This collection of printed ephemera was originally collected by John de Monins Johnson between c.1923 and 1956. It was housed at the Oxford University Press (where it was called The Constance Meade Collection of Ephemeral Printing) until its transfer to the Bodleian Library in 1968. The collection consists of more than 1 million items and documents advertising; authors; book trade; entertainment; political, religious, social and economic history; printing; private presses; transport; and travel. The collection is retrospective and spans the years 1508 to 1939, with some ephemera of the 1940s and 1950s and a separate collection of post-1960 additions. The collection is strongest in 19th and early 20th century ephemera, with significant 18th century holdings. The site provides catalogue access, finding aids, headings, access to similar collections and an online exhibition of selected work.
