Bookplate Odds and Ends

Thank you Ulrike Ladnar, Heinz Decker and Claus Wittal for writing and publishing an excellent reference book about theatrical bookplates. I think every serious bookplate collector should order a copy. The book is written in German but the 241 color illustrations are accurately described in an understandable fashion .
You can order the book at


Thank you Richard Schimmelpfeng for pointing out that the cipher on the DeLysle Ferree Caas bookplate was the owner's initials. He designed his own bookplate.

Thank you Anne Stibor for sending me the following link for the Pratt Institute bookplate collection. I am impressed. They have done an excellent job of displaying the collection.
