Click On Images To Enlarge Yesterday I got back from Hartford Papermania . Most of my purchases were not bookplates . I bought the image on the left depicting a mason . The image on the right, by the same artist was already in my collection. Does anyone out there have any information about the artist I.Busch ?
I am assuming these are German , 18th century hand colored prints taken from books.
If you have found interesting ephemeral items in old books let me hear from you and I will include your treasures in a future posting.
