I got back from Papermania late Saturday evening and woke up at 4 :30 A. M. to look at and sort all my purchases. In Hartford , I finally purchased a Leonard Baskin bookplate done for Temple Emanuel. I had been searching for this elusive plate for some time. My initial thought when I started looking six months ago was to call Temple Emanuel in New York City.Everyone knows Temple Emanuel is in New York City, right? I did not make the call because after searching on Google I found about twenty different places of worship with that name. Does anyone out there know which Temple Emanuel used this bookplate?
It was Tom Boss who actually found the plate for me . Since one good turn deserves another let me mention that Tom Boss is the only full time bookplate dealer in America . I have been buying from him for over twenty years and his inventory of American and European bookplates is awesome. He will send out bookplates on approval ,which in this day and age is very refreshing.
Tom's Email is TGBOSS@COMCAST.NET
