 Tom purchased the Stephen Caplin collection .. It was one of the last of the early 20th century collections still in private hands.
It is rich in many areas including E.D. French and 18th century American exlibris.
For established customers Tom will send bookplates  on approval.
These are four of the items I purchased from him.earlier in the week.

The plate shown below was printed in Italy for the Newark New Jersey Free Public Library.

I call it my fire the typesetter bookplate.

This plate for Stewart Henry Hartshorn is illustrated on page 83 in The Art Of The Bookplate by James Keenan..Does anyone out there know who the artist is?
 His (Her) initials are CLH

I already have a copy of the plate for the American publisher Ralph Pulitzer and his first wife Frederica
  It is so finely engraved I purchased this copy for possible exchange.

Last but not least Jacques Laget  has an fine selection of bookplates  on his website

If you still have any money left after going through all the dealer sites you can always contact me to see what bookplates I have for sale or trade.

See you next Sunday.
