    There are two recorded STEVENS bookmarks, sb304: A wish / I wish that happiness may, and sb2568: With best wishes for your birthday, which have been seen still attached to the original backing paper, on which is printed:
"Manufactured for Messrs Morgan & Scott Ltd., 12 Paternoster Buildings, London, EC4, By Thomas Stevens Ltd."
Of note is that Stevens became a Ltd company in 1906, suggesting Morgan & Scott were selling these bookmarks around that time.

Included with the images of the bookmarks above is the title " A Birthday Greeting / The Lord bless thee ", and this is still attached to the stiff backing paper on which is printed the same 12 Paternoster Buildings address. This was of course the same London address as Stevens. Of interest though is that this bookmark also has a " Series " number woven on the reverse, and as several other Morgan & Scott Ltd bookmarks also have a Series number, this suggesting that all their bookmarks were made by the same weaver.

It was initially thought that " Marshall, Morgan & Scott Ltd " was a re-named extension of Morgan & Scott Ltd. Now however that more images of both companies are available, this would seem unlikely, and the Marshall, Morgan & Scott Ltd bookmarks are now listed separetely.

Most of the Morgan & Scott Ltd bookmarks have religious verses, although none are quotations from the Bible. The Marshall, Morgan & Scott Ltd bookmarks however are all actual quotations from the Bible, and are quite different.
