Papermania was exhausting You could not tell we are in a recession if you were an attendee. Many dealers reported brisk sales and prices seem to have risen. If you are in the New York City area this weekend there is a book show at the 25th street armory. Details are at this link:
Three of the bookplates I picked up at the show are Harry Crosby of The Black Sun Press (wood block on parchment)
Secretary Bird by Arnljot Lovstad , a Norwegian artist. Does anyone out there recognize the owner's name?
Weird plate for Louis N.Wilson,(etching and aquatint) Signed F.B. R and engraved by W. F. Hopson. The owner was the librarian of Clark University from 1889 to 1929.
This morning I participated in a bookplate discussion on BBC/Radio Scotland. Hopefully the link below will enable you to listen to it for the next seven days. The bookplate segment starts at 21:40 on the timer
This is an abbreviated posting because I am still playing catch up after having been gone for several days. I will be posting some more later in the week. See you then.
