The Bookplates of Pauline Stone

Last week's blog about Leonard Baskin is expanding as I had hoped .Readers sent in additional scans and more are coming.  This week I have begun  a checklist for Pauline Stone. I am aided greatly in this project with information from  the late Edith Anderson Rights' privately printed monograph     Women Bookplate Artists..
If you have bookplates not on this list please send me the owner's name and it will be added to the list.
Better still, a scan would be most helpful.

*2/24/2014   I just looked at a copy of Some Children's bookplates
 by Wilbur Macey Stone (Pauline's father).He has appended a condensed list of children's bookplates and indicates that the bookplate shown above is after a drawing by Miss Violet M. Holden.

Here is an enlarged view of  an authenticated Pauline Stone's signature( submitted by Tom Boss).
Some of the pencil signed plates illustrated have signatures that are very different.
Perhaps they were done by a collector. The signatures on the Frances Spencer Bickerton  and Janet Lansing Wicks plates are also correct.

Hopefully, I will be adding more names and scans as they are received.
