Books on bookplates, ex libris, book culture, libraries, and library have been published for well over a century.  The following bibliography is designed to serve as a reference for those interested in collecting the bookplates and learning more about the book culture and libraries of various countries around the world.  New publications will be added all the time, so be sure to check back often for new updates.  As well, if you know of any good sources that should be included on this list, please do not hesitate to contact me with suggestions for improvement.
