Vintage: Good Eggs

I stumbled across a large collection of vintage egg print pages at a recent antique show. 

The vendor informed me that the pages originally came from a library book that was so valuable a librarian had to stamp each page with the library seal before anyone could check the book out. Apparently egg prints are hot commodity!

Personally, I think the Brooklyn Public Library stamp adds quite a bit of character and charm to the pages. Not only the vintage look of the stamp, but the NY location fascinates me.
Many of these prints can now be found in my etsy vintage shop.
