Songs Of Kabir by Rabindranath Tagore. The bookplate in it was mildly interesting ( I am going through bookplate withdrawal and needed a fix) plus the inscription called out for translation. Can someone out there assist me? Here is what I have found out about James Kip Finch (1883-1967).He was an important civil engineer , author, and the dean of the school of engineering at Columbia University.
Malcolm Enright, fellow bookplate enthusiast ,blogger. and "jeweller to the lost" recently sent me this breathtaking photograph of Antarctica .
Some people have the single minded ability to muster all their mental resources and focus that energy on a single project for a sustained period of time.That is not the way my mind usually works . I am a mental sprinter . Either I learn something quickly or I go on to another project.
The folks at Google have figured out that there are many people whose heads are wired that way and they design their products accordingly. That is why I am so pleased with the Picasa photo album which I am using in conjunction with an article about Hugh and Margaret Eaton for
The Exlibris Chronicle. The article will be about Eaton designed bookplates but the Picasa Album will encompass all kinds of ephemera which they produced at The Valhall Studio in Brooklyn , New York
This album is a work in progress and much more is to be added in the next few days.
Speaking of Brooklyn, I will be there on July 23rd and 24th on a bookplate expedition. If you are in the area and have bookplates to sell or trade please contact me. Bookplatemaven@hotmail.com
