    The Illuminated Book Marks are useful as well as orna -
mental, and they exhibit both in design and make, the skill
of the Coventry Weavers.  The distress that has so long
existed in Coventry, is unhappily on the increase, (the
pauper list is swelling at the rate of three hundred a week)
and thousands of industrious artisans, through no fault of
their own, are thrown completely out of employment; it is
therefore hoped that every purchaser of these articles will
try and induce a few friends to do likewise, as by this
means they will assist greatly to mitigate the distress by
the best of all remedies, the employment of the people.
    These elegant little articles are admirably adapted for
presents.  Those who have friends abroad cannot possibly
send a more suitable present than one of these Book Marks,
as being light in weight they do not increase the postage,
or get damaged in transit.
    N.B. --- It is respectfully requested that amounts of Two
and Sixpence and upwards be remitted by Post Office order,
and be made payable to MULLONEY and JOHNSON,
Manufacturers, Coventry.

Comments:
Apart from one title, " Suffer little children ", all the rest of the titles recorded above were un-known to Godden, and this is the first time they are recorded anywhere.
Images have been found and recorded on this site for a number of bookmarks which are believed to be of Mulloney & Johnson manufacture. None of these though have a weavers name, and it is exclusively due to the titles and descriptions of the advert above that these images have been identified.
