Click on Images to Enlarge

James M. Goode has assembled one of the finest private collections of American and English bookplates I have ever seen. If you click on the link above you will see a most informative video about his collection.

If you can get to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia before July 31st. be sure to visit Three Centuries of the American Bookplate a representative exhibit of the Goode collection . It will be on view at both the Alderman and Harrison -Small Libraries. For summer hours check the following website:

On Wednesday June 16th at 5:30 P.M. Mr. Goode will also be a guest lecturer in the Clemmons library at the University of Virginia. The bookplate lecture is open to the public.

All the images in this posting are from the exhibit catalog.It is an exceptional reference tool , 24 pages with many enlarged full color reproductions and much useful information. This is a day for superlatives. You will probably never see a better bookplate exhibit catalog .
The swimming pool beckons, see you next Sunday.
