<center>Stevens Bookmarks first appeared around 1862.</center>

Thomas Stevens first introduced his Bookmarks (Book Markers) around 1862 and by the end of that year as many as 79 different titles were available. By 1876 there were 900 to 1000 being manufactured. In the 19th century, a Book Marker was a much appreciated gift and Stevens seemed to make one for every occasion or celebration.

Bookmarks are listed in alphabetical order by the topmost words appearing on the silk. The numbers after each title refer to the numbers given by Geoffrey A. Godden in his book "STEVENGRAPHS and other Victorian silk pictures" First published 1971 by Barrie & Jenkins Ltd.
