|The Canadian War Libraries by Leslie Victor Smith (1939)|
Designed by Leslie Victor Smith in 1939, it is a typical example of his later work for official organizations. It also provides us with good evidence of the various names being used by Canadian library councils prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. I especially like this one as well as it was used to mark books donated by the students of Fort Erie High School in Ontario.
|Leslie Victor Smith's personal bookplate|
As mentioned in my previous post on bookplate resources, there is a book available written by Colgate that details Smith's Ex Libris work. I actually don't yet have a copy of this important volume, but it's on the 'to do' list for this summer. Very likely I'll pick it up during one of my travels away from the keyboard. See you again soon.
