Can You Guess Which One Was A Cross Dresser?

Information about President Hoover's plate was written by Norman Kuhner and appeared on page 264 of Bookplates In The News
1970-1985 by Audrey Spencer Arellanes

" The centerpiece is a reproduction of a woodcut from one of the earliest printed books on mining, the BERGBUCHLIN VON ALLEN METALLEN of 1527.This work, whose author is anonymous, describes the locating and working of veins of ore; it served miners as a handbook which went through many editions.
Later,in 1556, appeared the great DE RE METALLICA or "ON the Metals"which the Hoovers translated (while raising two sons!)
three hundred years later"

That's all for now.
