These are from what is considered a warehouse find, left over stock that was never used and sat in the warehouse for decades. A colorful piece of Ephemera, over 100 years old. In the case of the William D Burt find, they turned up in the late 1960s, 100,000's of seed packets, along with some store displays. They were advertised through the Antique Trader and bought up by dealers and decorators.
