Ephemera is a broad term used to describe items of paper that were created for use in a short time span and meant to be thrown away after one or two uses. Items generally put into the ephemera category of collecting would be sheet music, posters, stock certificates, post cards, cigarette cards, magazines, catalogs, and the like.

I love the artwork on this game box!  Not much information on the box other than the number "4164" and "Milton Bradley Co., Springfield Mass USA".  Inside are a lot of paper letters like this:

Handwritten on back is "Madeline, from Aunt Gny".  I remember her telling me one time that she liked to play this game as a little girl.
