Click on Images to Enlarge
The Carl Bruschweiler plate is by Gregor Rabinowich (1884-1958).It was submitted by Mr. Michael Kunze.
Cindy Woods ,a very talented artist who designs bookplates for herself and friends submitted one of her own designs. I am over-bookplated for now but if I wanted another bookplate I would contact her. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
John Titford submitted the armorial plate. "It is printed in reverse, and is clearly the Tudor royal coat of arms (Tudor design on shield,Tudor lion/dragon supporters)with a reference to Elizabeth-presumably Elizabeth I ,Queen of England"
