Some Interesting Bookplates
One of the items I got was a bookplate for Simcha Ambache.
He was a Palestinian born consulting engineer with the Suez Canal Co. who raised his family in colonial Egypt.
Mr. Ambache is linked to the creation of modern Israel through the marriage of his two daughters (Suzy and Aura) to Abba Eban & Chaim Herzog.
I have a duplicate copy of this bookplate for possible exchange .
Does anyone out there know anything about the owner or the artist?

Crawford Burton was a wealthy stock broker and sportsman whose dubious claim to fame was a Camel Cigarette Endorsement ad .This is his beautifully engraved bookplate.
