Description A collection of ephemera, fragments of publications, and single items such as post-cards have been aggregated in this Appalachian regional collection. Many of the items have been removed from original early serials publications and ephemeral publications often used for travel and tourism promotion in western North Carolina and the surrounding region. This removal was not the work of Special Collections, nor is the hand-coloring seen on many of the items. For example,  illustrations from Harper's Magazine, Appleton's and other early periodicals have been hand-colored through intervention by the previous owners and vendors. In their original state the items would be colorless.  Maps of coastal North Carolina and Civil War maps are also included in this eclectic body of material. The illustrations and photographs found in this collection capture some of the visual history of the most visited and familiar of western North Carolina landmarks and include such well-known illustrators as Henry Fenn, Sol Eytinge, Mary L. Stone, Wordsworth Thompson [ A. W. Thompson] , W. A. Rogers,  C. S. Reinhart,  and others. Some illustrations accompany partial articles and are gathered in this collection for illustrations only, and not for their textual integrity. The original items would have been colorless. This is particularly true of images from illustrated magazines.  The collection also includes segments of published material, including Picturesque America, a popular illustrated book of the early twentieth century. Articles are generally are partial and are gathered in this collection for their illustrations, and not for their textual integrity.  The full article may be generally accessed by searching online.  Also included are representative examples of sheet music that carry the theme of North Carolina.
