Ivorine tag printed in green, approx. 3 by 3.5 cm. Very good with light soiling. The Boots Booklovers Library, which had no connection to Seymour Eaton’s Booklovers Library based in Philadelphia, was formed in 1898 and were located within over a hundred Boots shops, a chain of English pharmacies. In its heyday, the lending library had over 500,000 subscribers. The concern lasted until 1966. This token, an ivorine version of their logo and labels, reads on the verso “This voucher is issued in lieu of one book & must be surrendered when borrowing recommences or the subscription expires.”
