Part of Malleable Boy used to catalog the various items I have found while rummaging through old books over the past 800 years.
This initial installment features several pieces found tucked in the pages of a Catholic prayer book from the 1920s.
This is a receipt for a women's clothing store from 1959.
The reverse side of the receipt features a delightful customer's note on the store's poor shipping service.
"Thanks for the lousy service. I placed an order in Nov. & received it in Jan. I shouldn't have accepted the merchandise but I'll certainly not recommend you to anyone"
Here are the other items found in the same book:
A handwritten note on the meaning of Noel.
And, lastly, a page from a pocket calendar dated February 27, 1958.
trephine: A surgical instrument having circular, sawlike edges, used to cut out disks of bone, usually from the skull.
iridectomy: Surgical removal of part of the iris of the eye.
