The most interesting item I found was not a bookplate. It is a New Haven ,Connecticut tavern receipt from the early 19th century.I am gathering information about the Tavern and the owner Justus Butler
and will write more about it when my research is completed.
I've accumulated quite a few early 19th century library by -laws notices over the years and found this one at the show..Does anyone out there know which institution used the letters S.M.C.T.A.L.?
I assume the last two letters are for Association Library..If you have similar items and want them added to this posting please send a scan to Bookplatemaven@hotmail.com
I scanned everything in my own collection and welcome additional scans

"The Philadelphia Typographical Society was organ- ized in 1802, and enjoys the distinction of being the old- est existing organization of the craft. Up to 1831 it existed as both a benevolent and a trade society, as was the rule among the early societies. In 1831 it became a purely benevolent association."
This Williams College item is from the 18th century
