"I've sent scans of 2 of my favorites. The first is Jeffrey Norton's
plate, beautiful and simple, it measures only 1 x 1.25 inches. Norton
was an important collector of angling books last century and his books
sold in the early 2000's in about 5 separate sales at Pacific Book
The second one is Joe Bates plate. Bates was a very prolific angling
writer and his bookplate signifies that beautifully: the fly rod
crossed with the quill."

The John Gerard  Hecksher plate is from the Debra Walker collection

I just couldn't resist this although technically it is not a bookplate but a New Year's card from 1960.

Dear Mr. Jaffe,
In the attachement you'll see a dutsch universal angling ex libris from +/- 1930-1935. It is one of a serie of universal ex libris about sports and music.
yours sincerely
