|Bookplate by Jessie M. King|
This issue also includes articles examining the bookplate designs of Graham Rust; makes inquiries into whether or not Catherine the Great had a bookplate; displays the ex-libris work of English painter Keith Vaughan (1912-1977); as well as a great little piece about how one might design one's own bookplate (something I'm currently working on myself...). In addition there are collecting and personal notes, etc., and along with the journal was the October 2012 society newsletter containing the details for Auction 67.
I've acquired some nice new items this past week for my collection but I'll post these tomorrow after I get them scanned in later today. Also, I want say 'thank you' for the many kind emails and comments I received concerning my previous post on hoarders and snobs. It seems this attitude is a bit more prevalent on this side of the pond and I encourage folks not to be bullied out of enjoying what is a great learning hobby.
As always, if you have bookplates for sale or trade, I'm always interested in buying whole collections or individuals items from any period. As well, if you have any questions or want to share some of your own finds on this blog for everyone to see, don't hesitate to get in touch. Until next time...
