Punning (Canting) Bookplates

 Punning bookplates have always fascinated me. 
If you have any in your collection please send me a scan(s).
They will be posted to this blog as they are received.
Puns in languages other than English would be most welcome.
Send your scans to     Bookplatemaven@hotmail.com

Three of the plates shown below are actually rebus/punning plates
