Christmas Bookplates

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I would be pleased to receive more scans from you of Christmas bookplates for inclusion in this posting .

Send your scans to

Here are two from my collection

Mr. Nitter was a lawyer in Boston

Fellow collector Michael Kunze sent me these two 

I found two bookplates reminding on the season approaching:
1. made by Erich Buettner (Berlin 1889 - 1936 Freiburg) for Fritz and 
Marie Brandi ( an etching done around 1920)
2. Theo Broekstra (Netherlands, in 1952 or 53 he emigrated to Australia) 
did the silhouette/ paper art in 1951 for A. Duyvestin mst.


Rebecca Eschliman Sent This Plate

This universal bookplate shown below  was based on Scherenschnitte brought  from Europe in the early 1930s by Lucy and Arthur Morgan (parents of Antioch Bookplate co-founder Ernest Morgan).

From Fellow Collector Anthony Pincott

By Eric Gill. 
Used as, but not originally intended for, a bookplate.

Couldn't resist slipping this  in.
