Robert Sneider, Engraver,Printer,Medalist, and Lithographer
Once such research is posted on the blog other collectors and researchers are encouraged to send additional data and scans to email@example.com
On several occasions relatives of artists have stumbled upon my blog and generously contributed information..
My first batch of bookplates engraved by Robert Sneider were in a lot that originally came from the shop of Theodore B.Starr , an early 20th century jeweler and silversmith.in New York City
Some of the bookplates were signed by Robert Sneider . Others which appeared to be by him were not.
I have only scanned the signed ones.
Mr.Sneider ((1841-1917) is listed in various New York City trade directories at thee different locations.
The earliest ,in 1877 was at 37 John Street,From there he relocated to Fulton St.
His ads indicated i that he was an engraver,printer, lithographer and a medalist
.I suspect he was also a silver engraver.
These two are about a very focused book collector who has the funds to aggressively pursue his hobby.
See you next Sunday
