The Enright Collection/The Schrader Collection/The Pierce Collection
Provenience : The collection was owned by Alexander W. Mackenzie of Columbus , Ohio and changed hands in the late 1950's. In doing some preliminary research I discovered that his wife was a bookplate designer.(Ref.#4938 Bookplates, A Selective Annotated Bibliography of the Periodical Literature by Audrey Spencer Arellanes )
The hand colored plate is a from The Vatican for Pope Gregory XV dated 1621
I purchased the Fred J. Pierce collection of natural history bookplates six months ago and it is slowly being integrated into my collection. The rooster plate was done by Bertha Bates, a student of Howard Pyle and Professor Goldi's tells you much about his life's work in Brazil.
