1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

John Bunyan is better known for his Pilgrim's Progress, but his "Holy War..." is similar: A classic Christian allegorical novel. This 1857 decorative edition is bound in bright red cloth boards with a gilded spine. It belonged to a Susan Angelica Getty, whose name is inscribed in the front and who seems to have used the book as a keepsake album: It contains 8 different locks of hair. I also found a sentimental poem cut from a newspaper and a large, four leaf clover pressed between the book's many pages.

The Beard Tax | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

A beard tax was instituted in 1705: men who wished to keep their beard could pay a tax, otherwise men would have to shave. Men who paid the tax were given a proof-of-payment token to show they had made their payment.

A whole museum of hair memento mori!
