Mystery Bookplate ArtistJoseph Henry Harper was the grandson of Fletcher Harper one of the founders of Harper Brothers publishing.
He used an attractive printed bookplate which is not artist signed. The Harper's May poster was done by Edward Penfield and there is a striking similarity between the two. Perhaps the image on the bookplate was copied from something done by him.
