Here are some links that should be of interest :
Fellow collector Richard Schimmelpfeng has put together an impressive list of duplicate bookplate books which are for sale . Many items on the list are priced at $15.00 plus postage. If you contact him he will send you the complete list. His email is Crwalker69@hotmail.com
Fellow collector Jim Lewis sent me this link to the digital bookplate collection at Winterthur.
It contains many 18th century American bookplates.
I received an online bookplate catalog from Wolfgang Rieger.
Here is a blog about the bookplates of Joseph Gleeson- White
Last , but not least Jim Keenan has launched a new blog to attract new members for the American Society of Bookplate Collectors And Designers

Mr. Jaffee, The library of Congress has a 4th, photomechanically printed in black and red. It reads: Louisa and Booth their book and shows a couple reading. Ruthven Deane has inscribed on verso: Des. by Margaret Steel Newbacher/Neuberger Indianapolis. (both names are written). Any idea which last name is correct?

Sara Duke, Curator, Prints & Photographs Division, Library of Congress.

The correct name is Margaret Steele Neubacher. She was the daughter of Thiodore Clement Steele
