This Week in Bookplates 1/12/2014

Earlier this week Gabe Konrad  published his new PDF bookplate catalog with many reasonably priced items, Everything is subject to prior sale and  yesterday Gabe sent me this update:

"Well, I sold more than I expected. 
 Sold are number 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 16*, 18, 23, 30, 31, 33, 34, and 45.

There are still 30 items available"

Note from Lew
*I purchased item   16. The Roy Martins. Cipher of an unknown designer. 63mm x 102mm. .
Does anyone recognize the artist's cipher?

Dugald Stewart Walker

I hope to publish a checklist of the bookplates designed by Dugald Stewart Walker.
 The Library of Virginia has a collection with about twenty bookplates which he designed.
The Autumn 1991 issue of Virginia Cavalcade has a ten page well illustrated article about him . written by 
Stacy Gibbons Moore and Edward D.C. Campbell,Jr..
 You may still be able to purchase this issue .

 Regrettably,,,the image above is not a bookplate..It was engraved by Mr. Walker
 for the first day cover of the Susan Anthony commemorative stamp

That wraps it up for now. See you next Sunday.
