E. Bollans & Co. Trademark as printed on the card on which the bookmarks were mounted for posting
    E. Bollans & Co., 14 Ranelagh Terrace, Leamington
    (Note Bollans were possibly Wholesalers, as many silks are identical to other manufacturers, particularly Welch & Lenton, and the address given on some of Bollans Register entries is that of Welch & Lenton. Bollans was also recorded as wholesalers of stationery.)
    (Note too that Godden drew upon, and consolidated, various advertisements of Bollans. The description given by Godden was hence restricted by the limited wording used in those advertisement. Whilst potential inconsistencies are being systematically eliminated from the index below, there may nevertheless be duplication between Goddens description and the more accurate title derived from actual images of the bookmarks concerned.)
