In this interview, vintage passport collector Jonathan Moore talks about his quest for 19th century and early 20th century passports.
ephemera: How did you start collecting passports and related ephemera?
Moore: I began collecting various things as a kid in the 1970s. By the late 1980s–having traveled a bit to Europe on my own passport–I turned to passports and related international travel documents. I found one or two at various antique stores and flea markets, and inherited a few from relatives, but the collection really took off when I bought the collection of a distinguished ephemera collector, Charles Richard Gordon Stuart–whose collection of railway tickets in displayed in a museum in the UK– and when I discovered Ebay in 1997.
