To collectors "ephemera" are vintage printed or written items which originally served some specific purpose and were not expected to be retained or preserved, but which are now cherished.ย Examples: Letters, ticket stubs, photographs, etc.

A record of ownership of a work art or an antique, used as a guide to authenticity or quality.ย 
We consider these books to be unique, with its own history. Previous owners paper ephemera and provenance go hand in hand, many times by helping us authenticate first editions.ย  If we see a letter in the book from 1973. and the first edition was published in 1973, we know its likely authentic. ๐™‰๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™—๐™ค๐™ค๐™  ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™จ ๐™š๐™ฅ๐™๐™š๐™ข๐™š๐™ง๐™–, consider yourself lucky if you find one that does!

It took a while to receive, but the books were good quality. some of them were very strange titles. But I bought them for looks.

I ordered โ€œvintage mixed colorsโ€ and I got a lot of great books for the price. However, I wish I had gotten more colorful books. 90% of them are dark brown, navy, or burgundy. I wish there was greater contrast in the books I received.

We get asked a lot, 'where do you get your books from?'

We have worked out exclusive partnerships with other booksellers & paper recyclers in the U.S.A.

Most people do not realize that all other booksellers destroy far more books then they can sell by selling them to recyclers or pulpers.  (we won't name names ๐Ÿ˜‰)

We are the last chance stop for these books, through our partnerships, we sift and sort through these books and pull out any and all of the books in good condition(you'd be surprised what people throw away).  

They might be used books, but we sort for quality and look for books that are in great shape despite being previously loved. 

When you buy from The Book Bundler, you are not only recycling, you are reducing waste, going green and saving beloved books from certain destruction.  

That's how we are able to charge so little. 

Saving money on books never felt so right.
